This Christmas week, alongside the latest releases, the Apollo cinema in Stafford is returning some festive favourites to the big screen so they can be enjoyed in all their cinematic glory.

Macauley Culkin stars in the classic John Hughes comedy Home Alone which tells the story of a young boy inadvertantly left behind when his family jet off for Christmas. Not only does the 8 year old have to fend for himself, but he also has to defend his home from two bungling would-be thieves.

Home Alone is showing on Saturday 22nd, Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th at 10:15.


Next up is Arthur Christmas, which lifts the lid on that eternal question asked by children the world over - just how does Santa Claus deliver all those gifts in one night? 

Arthur Christmas is showing Saturday 22nd, Sunday 23rd, Monday 24th, Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th at 10:30.


Former Doctor Who, David Tennant, stars in festive comedy Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger in which the pupils of St Bernadette's head to Wales to compete in the national choir competition, A Song for Christmas, with hilarious results.

Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger is showing on Friday 21st - Monday 24th at 12:15 and 17:00 and from Friday 28th - Sunday 30th at 12:15.


Rise of the Guardians is an animated tale where Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost join forces to defeat the dastardly Bogeyman.

Rise of the Guardians is showing on Saturday 22nd to Monday 24th at 10:00 and 14:40 and from Wednesday 26th to Sunday 30th at 10:00.
