Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without this James Stewart classic to remind us what’s really important this festive season. Don't forget the tissues!

Loved by itisoners

“We got food, drinks and sweets. We got our blankets and pillows and got comfy. We laughed, joked, sang along to itison radio and played car games (not a phone or iPod in sight!) You can’t make those kinds of special memories in a regular movie theatre. Thank you!”

"What a brilliant girls’ night in/out! Brilliantly organised from being greeted, information issued, parking, leaving and food options! We stocked up on goodies and treats too and had a blast! Wish we'd booked more films. Can't wait to do it again!"

“A great family night; something different. One for the memory bank. Really well organised."

"The whole atmosphere was great and all the facilities were brilliant, me and my boyfriend had a great night... A night we will always remember!"
