Best Bits

Why not treat yourself to some Festive Films at the iconic BFI in the perfect Southbank location! From a black and white classic to the most popular Christmas Kids' films you can find! 

The Shop Around the Corner (1940)  (U)
Sat 4th  and 5th  December 2021 (Discount only valid on all screenings over opening w/e, Sat 4th  and Sun 5th)

This delicious romantic comedy demonstrates the famous ‘Lubitsch touch’ at its most tender, subtle and seductive. In the hectic run-up to Christmas, the irascibly anxious Mr Matuschek (Morgan) is worried about business at his Budapest emporium. He’d be even more troubled if he realised that two of his staff, Klara (Sullavan) and Alfred (Stewart) – ambitious rivals on the gossip-ridden sales floor – are conducting a romance with each other by letter. But then nobody’s aware of the truth – not even Klara and Alfred, since their correspondence has been anonymous. Samson Raphaelson’s script and deftly nuanced performances produce a film as affecting as it is funny. A classic often remade but never equalled, this is perfect seasonal fare.

Festive Funday Films

Saturday 4th December @ 12pm
Channel 4 2021
With the voices of Julie Walters, Hugh Dancy, David Harewood

When a great blizzard descends on the small town of Blackbury, home to Albert and his granny, it appears to have brought a 14-foot tall Abominable Snow Baby with it! Where the locals show fear and hostility, Albert and his granny treat the creature with respect and love, and it isn’t long before the townsfolk are forced to see the error of their ways. Terry Pratchett’s much-loved tale provides the basis for this new animated, wonderfully festive film.

Sat 4th December @10:30am in the BFI Foyer

Before you meet The Abominable Snow Baby on the big screen, come and take part in this festive family workshop in the main foyer at BFI Southbank. Design your own member of the Abominable Snow Baby family, or have a go at making an animation and drawing some snowy pictures.

This is a drop-in workshop, free to ticket holders of the film.

Saturday 18th December @ 11:45am 
Christmas with the Muppets, and a star turn by Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean-spirited miser who’s visited by Christmas spirits who offer him the chance to change before it’s too late. With Caine as Scrooge, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy as Bob and Emily Cratchit and joyous songs aplenty, this irresistible combination of The Muppets and Charles Dickens is a festive, comic treat.

Frozen (PG)
Sunday 19th December @ 12:50pm
This Disney favourite might be set in ice and snow, but it’s sure to warm your heart.

In the kingdom of Arendelle, Anna, Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and Olaf the snowman set out to find Anna’s runaway sister Elsa, who until recently had hidden her powers of controlling ice and snow. With incredible songs – including the unforgettable ‘Let It Go’ – and plenty of wintry adventure, Frozen is perfect Christmas fun for all the family.
