The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) U
1.00pm Palace Theatre 1hr 26m

The Muppets present their own version of Charles Dickens’ immortal festive tale about a bitter old miser who is shown the error of his ways. Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine) is the antithesis of the Christmas spirit. The money lender tyrannises his employees, who include Bob Cratchit (a role assumed by Kermit the Frog), and is utterly dismissive when his eager nephew, Fred (Steven Mackintosh), comes to invite him to Christmas dinner.

The Bishop's Wife (1947) U

A Christmas fantasy tale. Angel Dudley (Cary Grant) comes to Earth to help out a bishop Henry Brougham (David Niven) who is involved in a desperate fundraising appeal to build a cathedral. However, his financial concerns have led him to become cut off from his wife and parishioners, a state of affairs the suave angel intends to put straight.
Last Christmas (2019) 12
7.30pm Palace Theatre 1hr 39m

Kate (Emilia Clarke) harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. Tom (Henry Golding) seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of Kate’s barriers. As London transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, nothing should work for these two. But sometimes, you gotta let the snow fall where it may, you gotta listen to your heart … and you gotta have faith.
