A Very 80s Christmas

“This is not a Christmas season. It’s an 80s season. From haircuts and clothes to music and most importantly, films, the 80s were brilliant – particularly the big Christmas films that all the family would enjoy. This season showcases some of the films I loved then and still love now. They inspired a generation, they captured the hearts of children and adults and after almost 30 years, they still have a watchability that today’s low-risk blockbusters just don’t have.”

Curated by Jeni Hall, Film Programme Administrator and 80s fan.
