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 Federation Square, when it screens a range of festive and all-ages-friendly flicks in the lead up to December 25. For free.

Running on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between Friday, December 10–Saturday, December 18, the movie lineup includes recent instant festive classic Happiest Season, the animated Arthur Christmas, 80s comedy National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, the most recent version of The Grinch, the Will Ferrell-starring Elf and cult favourite Gremlins — and yes, the latter counts as a Christmas movie. Oh, and Love Actually is on the bill because it wouldn't be the jolliest time of the year without it.

You can also see Aussie rom-com musical Bran Nue Dae, and vote for the program's last slot — so, you'll be picking between It's a Wonderful Life's merriment, Martin Scorsese's glorious Hugo, Steve Martin and John Candy in Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and terrible sequel Daddy's Home 2.

The flicks will screen on Fed Square's Digital Facade — and the times vary, with some titles showing at 3pm and others at 8pm. We suggest getting there relatively early to snag a primo spot.
