A host of the best Christmas movies are coming to Falkirk for a drive-in cinema weekend

Some of the world’s most loved Christmas films are coming to town in December as the Falkirk Stadium plays host to a festive spectacular Drive-In Movie event in aid of charity.

Tuesday, 7th December 2021, 10:51 am
Home Alone is just one of the Christmas classic sets to be played on Falkirk's big screen.

A charity fundraising event, organised by The Catherine McEwan Foundation, will see a host of iconic Christmas movies shown at the Falkirk Stadium this weekend, including the likes of Elf, Home Alone and Die Hard.

The event will see a total of eight screening played over three days, starting from December 17, and mixes a host of classic Christmas classics and some of cinema’s most loved family favourites. The films are set to be spread over three days throughout the weekend, with each movie being broadcast on the world’s largest drive-in screen.

And tickets to our these Christmas crackers are selling fast.

Organisers of the event have already seen their drive-in events prove to be popular with film fans, after holding similar movie marathons, including a very successful Halloween event earlier in the year. Horror movies such as The Exorcist, Beetlejuice and Scream were played on the huge screen at the Falkirk Stadium, and this special event for the festive season promises to be even more popular with locals.

Onsite facilities include toilets, while food and drink is also available at the screening.

And with tickets on sale already, the organisers are encouraging you to wrap yourself in tinsel and drive up your Christmas spirit by grabbing tickets for this special drive-in experience.
