For one day only, on Sunday October 25, Showcase Cinema de Lux in Birstall will be screening the UK’s favourite Christmas blockbuster, giving film fans the chance to start the season of goodwill early and in style.

Home Alone first hit the big screen in 1990 and stars a young Macaulay Culkin in the lead role as eight-year-old Kevin MacCallister who is mistakenly left at home alone whilst his mum (Catherine O’Hara), dad and family head out of town on holiday. Kevin has to protect the family home from con men (Joe Pesci & Daniel Stern) who plan on robbing the MacCallister residence.

On bringing 2020’s first Christmas film to UK big screens, Mark Barlow, General Manager, Showcase Cinemas UK said: “This year has been tough on everyone and, with Christmas looking to be very different for 2020, we wanted to invite film fans to start the season earlier than ever before and join us for some much needed festive fun.
