The Complete christmas
experience

Transport yourself to the
North Pole

We’re more than a Christmas drive-in cinema. Featuring the very best selection of cosy Christmas favourites on our film schedule, ticketholders are treated to a fully contactless, immersive experience.

Packed with Christmas crackers and surprises throughout the journey, cars are guided through the mailroom tunnel before they enter the ‘snow valley’ which sees Santa’s workshop open for visits complete with cheeky elves ready to cause trouble!

All aboard for the final stop where visitors park up at the North Pole Station to sit back and relax with your ultimate Christmas hit from the comfort of your own car. This is truly the most memorable Christmas themed event you’ll find anywhere in Manchester.

Pick from over fifty showings which are split into nice & naughty

Nice: This is the perfect child-friendly event for all the family. Films include Home Alone, The Polar Express, Elf, The Grinch and many many more! Post your letter to Santa in our post-box and explore the North Pole from the safety of your car. Our cheeky elves are on hand performing acrobatics and tricks as you watch the film- there will also be a special message from the fat man himself.

Naughty: Bask in all the pleasures of the North Pole- naughty style! Films include The Holiday, Bad Santa, Die Hard and Love Actually. There may be appearances from some scantily dressed elves and what’s Santa doing?! Has he drunk too much sherry again?! This immersive cinema experience is the perfect evening out without the kiddos. There is snow way you want to miss this, you would be RUDE-olf not to!
