Mulled wine and a favourite Christmas movie in this cute Laois cinema

It is Christmas movie time in Mountmellick, Laois tonight in the town's cosy restored 1950s cinema.

The community run Balcony Cinema held an online survey to ask everyone what festive film they wanted to see, and the clear winner is the age old favourite Miracle on 34th Street.

The movie stars Richard Attenborough as Santa Claus.

There will be mulled wine, light refreshments and Christmas music before the movie rolls at 8pm this Wednesday December 19.

“Thanks to all who took part in our survey and we hope to see you next Wednesday night for our Christmas movie night,” said Ger Lynch who along with Michael Feely operates the restored cinema in Mountmellick Arts Centre.

Tickets as usual are €5.
