Elf (PG)

Our Christmas film this year is a modern classic. Really.

Buddy (Will Ferrell), is a regular-sized man who was raised as an elf by Santa Claus (Edward Asner). When Buddy discovers that he’s not actually a real elf, he heads back to his place of birth, New York City, in search of his biological family and all sorts of festive chaos ensues.

And, because it’s our Christmas film, it’s FREE/Am Ddim/No Charge. But, if you’d like to make a donation, we’ll have collection buckets dotted around to raise funds for the Welsh Women’s Aid Wrexham, the charity we’re supporting this year.

You won’t be surprised to know that there will also be all sorts of festive-themed extras including Christmas tipples and an indoor snowball fight. How can you resist? And if you want to dress for the occasion, there will be prizes for the best dressed elves.

And the critics say (as if it matters)…

“I love watching Ferrell do his gangly, clueless shtick, and even here, there’s something inherently funny about just seeing him in a big, green elf suit. There’s something inherently funny about Ferrell — period.” Peter Rainer, New York magazine

“It’s a bracingly subversive story told with tongue firmly in cheek.” Neil Smith, BBC

“A pleasantly old-fashioned, gee-whillikers Yuletide confection rescued from Schmaltz-ville by the subversive comic talents of Will Ferrell.” Megan Lehmann, New York Post

“A charming, silly family Christmas movie more likely to spread real joy than migraine, indigestion and sugar shock.” A.O. Scott,  New York Times
