Frozen

A cute talking snowman? Check. Magical princesses? Check. A reindeer? Check. Frozen is a great family choice for an outdoor drive in movie this Christmas. When newly crowned Queen Elsa accidentally uses her icy powers to trap her kingdom in an eternal winter, her sister Anna and rugged but lovable ice seller Kristoff must battle the elements to put things right. And if you’ve had enough of Let It Go, catch the winter’s musicals magical sequel, Frozen 2, also playing at The Drive In this December.

Love Actually

First released in 2003, Love Actually is a classic Richard Curtis romcom, perfect for warming the heart on these winter nights. Following nine intertwined and touching love stories, Love Actually sees newly elected British Prime Minister David (Hugh Grant) falling head over heels for junior staff member Natalie (Martine McCutcheon), a besotted English author Jamie (Colin Firth) overcoming language barriers to woo Portuguese housekeeper Aurelia, and Harry (Alan Rickman), a married man tempted by his attractive new secretary, along with many more. This movie explores the complexity of love in many different forms.

The Holiday

When dumped and depressed English rose Iris swaps her cute little countryside cottage for unlucky-in-love Amanda’s Californian mansion, unexpected and exciting things happen. A far cry from cheating exes and men that can’t commit, the ladies soon bump into local beaus who raise their spirits and make them forget the weary life they’d once led. A joyful Christmas romp!

Elf

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without watching Elf at least once, right? Perhaps at a drive in cinema in London? This is the epic story of Buddy (Will Ferrell), who was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a baby and raised by Santa’s Elves. Unable to shake the nagging feeling that he doesn’t fit in, he travels to New York (still convinced he’s an elf), to search for his real father. When the ever optimistic and excitable Buddy comes face to face with the fast-paced ‘real’ world and his biological family, he’s in for a few surprises. But really, what kind of festive chaos can one elf cause?

Miracle on 34th Street

Six-year-old Susan Walker is sceptical of Santa. After all, she lives with ambitious and high-flying professional mum Dorey, who is also a non-believer. But when Dorey hires a man named Kris Kringle (Richard Attenborough) to be the new Santa at Macy’s, a whole new realm of festive joy and confusion follows. He claims to be the real Santa Claus, and he certainly looks like Santa in all the story books, but could it possibly be true? Miracle on 34th Street is a true Christmas classic that simply can’t be missed.

Home Alone

The McCallister’s, a wholesome (if chaotic) American family, plan to spend a special Christmas in Paris. But when Peter and Kate’s youngest son Kevin, a bright eyed 8-year-old with a penchant for inventing mischief (Macaulay Culkin) gets left at home by mistake, he gets caught up in the Wet Bandits’ plan to rob their huge house on Christmas Eve. Alone but undeterred, Kevin turns the house into a series of booby traps in order to fight off the baddies and be reunited with his family. A much-loved classic, Home Alone was first released in 1990 and has been a family festive favourite ever since.

Arthur Christmas

Everyone knows that Santa delivers gifts to every child on Christmas Eve. But when the unthinkable happens and one child is left out, Santa’s youngest son Arthur is tasked to deliver the present before dawn breaks on Christmas Day. Can he do it in time and save Santa’s reputation?

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is a 1993 American stop-motion animated musical that explores the adventures of Jack Skellington, a pumpkin king that’s bored of Halloween and develops a fascination with Christmas. When he accidentally stumbles upon the Christmastown, he gets a new lease of life and plots to bring the joy of Christmas under his own command. By kidnapping Santa!

The Muppet Christmas Carol

First released in 1992, The Muppet Christmas Carol is a brilliant take on the famous Charles Dickens Novel, A Christmas Carol. Starring Michael Caine as Scrooge and our favourite puppet cast of Muppets, including Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, join the selfish Scrooge as he meets the spirits of three Christmases who set about to show him the error of his mean and stingy ways. Hilarious and heart-warming, this movie is a real winter treat.

The Polar Express

Based on the children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg, The Polar Express is a beautifully animated tale of a doubting boy who takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, to see Santa prepare for his biggest night of the year. Starring Tom Hanks, The Polar Express is a story of remarkable self-discovery - a feel-good movie with stunning animated scenery and a soundtrack to match.
