'Love Actually' Christmas in July

Pretend it's the season — with mulled wine and apple pie.

It mightn't be the season for trimming trees, singing carols and exchanging gifts just yet, but it is the season to pretend. And New Farm Cinemas has an event that's tailor-made for getting jolly in July — even if you usually avoid or ignore mid-year Christmas shenanigans.

At 7pm on Friday, July 27, the venue is giving seasonal classic Love Actually a whirl. That means there'll be plenty of jovial tales of romance starring seemingly every actor who was famous in Britain in 2003. Colin Firth broods, Hugh Grant dances, Alan Rickman charms and Liam Neeson shows his softer side. Keira Knightley is wooed and Emma Thompson proves a calm force to be reckoned with.

To accompany the session, the cinema is also serving up some very fitting refreshments. There'll be apple pie, which'll keep your stomach warm, plus mulled wine, which will warm your insides thoroughly. Given the movie will warm your heart — because if you're going along, you're definitely already a fan — prepare to feel mighty toasty as you revisit Richard Curtis' rom-com classic.
