The Snowman will be screening downstairs in the Arts Centre every 40 mins from12pm to 4.30. This half-hour film faithfully recreates author Raymond Briggs’ classic children’s Christmas tale, in which a young boy’s snowman magically comes to life and whisks him away to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus. The animation is still captivating for both adults and children. Featuring the music of composer Howard Blake, it features one song with lyrics, the hymn-like “Walking in the Air.” A must see this Christmas.

Elf  – Wednesday 16th December, 8pm – Admission €5

After inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community due to his ungainly size, a man raised as an elf at the North Pole is sent to the U.S. in search of his true identity.

Buddy was a baby in an orphanage who stowed away in Santa’s sack and ended up at the North Pole. Later, as an adult human who happened to be raised by elves, Santa allows him to go to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs. Hobbs, on Santa’s naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can. When Walter’s relationship with Buddy interferes with his job, he is forced to re-evaluate his priorities.
