10am – 6pm every day

Enter our icy igloo cinema to watch fun and educational Christmas films on a 360-degree screen. The 30-minute films will help you and your family get into the Christmas spirit.

What’s more, each Saturday, Santa will be on hand to welcome you to the igloo cinema and to enjoy selfie or two with you.

Take a tour of winter’s evening sky and then join jolly ol’ Santa and concerned alien, Mr. Freep, as they explore the solar system’s planets and meet the Christmas Eve needs of their fictitious inhabitants.

  • The Christmas Story (30 minutes)

Accompany Mary and Joseph from the Annunciation by the Angel Gabriel in Nazareth to the search for a room in overcrowded Bethlehem. Then stand before King Herod in his great palace, alongside the three Wise Men from the East and visit the shepherds and their flocks as they find the child in a manger.

  • Star of Bethlehem (22 minutes)

Head back to the ancient town of Bethlehem to examine possible explanations for the so-called ‘star’ that allegedly guided the Wise Men. Accompanied by well-known Christmas music, the narration guides us through the historical, astronomical and culturally popular events surrounding the Christmas story.
