Saffron Screen over Christmas: Enjoy House of Gucci, Encanto, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, King Richard, It's a Wonderful Life, A Boy Called Christmas and No Time To Die
Saffron Screen, Uttlesford’s community cinema, has scheduled a host of screenings to spread the Christmas spirit.
Dutch violinist and conductor André Rieu’s spectacular Christmas Concert recorded live in Maastricht will feature along with A Boy Called Christmas, a gorgeous adaptation of Matt Haig’s popular novel. Santa himself will make a special visit to screenings.
For traditionalists, there will be a screening of the classic It's a Wonderful Life and families will love Disney’s Encanto, a new animation featuring songs from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
In King Richard, Will Smith delivers one of his best performances as the ambitious father of champion tennis sisters Venus and Serena Williams, and Ridley Scott’s star-studded true-crime drama, House of Gucci, features Adam Driver, Lady Gaga, Al Pacino and Salma Hayek in a jet-setting saga of luxury fashion and dynastic feuding.
There is also another chance to catch Daniel Craig in action as James Bond in No Time to Die – including a socially distanced screening on December 29 – as well as Ghostbusters: Afterlife, an exciting reboot of the well-loved franchise.
For something a bit different, there is a definitive documentary about Jacques Cousteau with Becoming Cousteau. Steven Spielberg’s new version of West Side Story will be screened in the new year.
Saffron Screen’s auditorium at Saffron Walden County High School in Audley End Road boasts a full-size screen, 200 seats, Dolby Digital surround sound and both 35mm and digital projection equipment.
