Free Christmas Films at Fed Square
Catch four classic Christmas flicks under the stars — without spending a cent.
UPDATE: DECEMBER 2, 2019 — Due to unforeseen events, Fed Square has had to replace its December 22 screening of Home Alone with Arnold Schwarzenegger's 96 comedy Jingle All the Way. The below article has been updated to reflect this.
There's nothing like a bit of big screen movie magic to get you into the Christmas spirit, especially when that involves diving deep into some classics. This year, you can get your festive fix courtesy of The Digital Facade at Fed Square, when it screens four much-loved Christmas flicks in the lead up to December 25. For free.
Happening as part of the multi-faceted Fed Square Christmas Festival, the movie fun kicks off on Saturday, December 21, with a showing of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Sticking with the theme, the Australian Ballet Company will also be dropping by to deliver a live performance from The Nutcracker, and there'll be complimentary popcorn and sugarplum fairy floss for those mid-movie snacks.
Arnold Schwarzenegger's 90s comedy Jingle All the Way will grace the big screen on Sunday, December 22, followed by dark fantasy Edward Scissorhands on December 23, and a showing of The Santa Clause on the night before Christmas. There'll be free popcorn at these screenings, too.
We suggest getting there relatively early to snag a primo spot.
