Manchester’s ‘Magical Christmas Movie Experience’ opens in Mayfield Depot on 23 November 2018!

Staged in the surroundings of the beautifully transformed Mayfield Depot near Manchester Piccadilly, the anticipated Magical Christmas Movie Experience will open its festive doors to the public on Friday 23rd November 2018 with The Greatest Showman, all brought to life with stilt-walkers, fire artists and a fabulous choir.

Staged during weekends between 23 November and 16 December 2018, the fully immersive family experience will feature live choirs, an Enchanted Forest, Christmas themed refreshments, and appearances from Father Christmas and his Elves, alongside a classic movie programme featuring the likes of Elf, Home Alone, Die Hard and Love Actually.

The full film programme features Love Actually, The Holiday, Elf, Gremlins, The Polar Express, Home Alone, Home Alone 2, Die Hard, and Santa Claus The Movie.

Upon arrival, movie fans will be greeted by a live choir singing carols and festive songs, before taking a trip into Mrs Claus’ traditionally decorated lounge. They will then make their way through the Narnia-inspired wardrobe of fur coats and transported into a magical Enchanted Christmas Forest, where the carols will also be heard.

The forest centrepiece is a 14ft Christmas Tree, surrounded by snow drifts, snow dusted pine trees, Victorian lamp posts, and an igloo.

After exiting the enchanted forest, guests will be welcomed to a large food hall with wooden benches where festive snacks and refreshments will be available to purchase. These include popcorn, candy floss, dim sum, burgers, doughnuts, street food, hot chocolate and hot chocolate cocktails, Christmas cocktails, and mulled wine.

Seating in the movie screening area will include Giant Bean Bags. Visitors are encouraged to dress warm.

Blankets will be provided, which will then be donated to the city’s homeless community after the final screening.

Tickets for all the films start from £14.99.
