A range of classic Christmas films will be returning to UK cinemas this winter, which includes the likes of Elf, Love Actually, Home Alone, It's a Wonderful Life and many more.

Showcase Cinemas is launching their 'Festive Flashbacks' season with 13 films in total being brought back to the big screen.

Two of the films are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, including the ensemble comedy Love Actually and the Will Ferrell-led Elf.

Meanwhile, festive classics from the mid-20th Century will also be featured, including Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas and Santa Claus: The Movie.

Finally, even though its status as a Christmas film is still debated to this day, Die Hard will be there for those in the mood for an action spectacle.

You can find your nearest Showcase Cinemas branch on their website here.
