Showcase Cinemas will be offering cinema-goers in Peterborough a magical festive experience on the big screen with its Festive Medley.

The selection of Christmas themed screenings will be shown throughout November and December at Showcase’s locations across the UK, including Boongate in Peterborough.

For those who love the magic of ballet, three traditional shows will be screened: The Australian Ballet performance of Cinderella at the end of November, The Royal Ballet’s favourite The Nutcracker at the start of December, and the world famous Bolshoi Ballet company’s version of The Nutcracker seeing 2016 out on New Year’s Eve.

For fans of classic films, Showcase will be screening one of the most-loved Christmas films of all time, It’s a Wonderful Life, starring James Stewart and Donna Reed.

Opera fans can also experience the joy and spirit of the season with the best-selling world-renowned opera trio’s festive concert, The Three Tenors Christmas.

James Dobbin, director of event cinema at Showcase Cinemas, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to offer this assortment of festive classics to our guests this Christmas. The music, songs and stories are timeless so there really is something for everyone.”
