Free Rein – the 12 neighs of Christmas

Animation for the whole family:
This is a beautifully animated feel-good family Christmas adventure, featuring a young boy whose faith in the holiday spirit is restored when he makes a long train journey to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. Featuring Tom Hanks and Nona Gaye.
Shrek the Halls
Our favourite Dreamworks charater, Shrek, is back with the whole family for some grumbling Christmas fun. Watch our grudging hero come to terms with the merriment and joy of the holidays as only an ogre can.
Angela’s family trip to church on Christmas eve inspires her to do something extraordinary. This heartwarming tale will have the little ones smiling and remind them what Christmas is supposed to be all about.
For the Grown-Ups:
A Very Murray Christmas
Bill Murray rounds up an all-star cast for a Christmassy evening of music and mischief in this irreverent twist on holiday variety shows. Not for the little kids – this one is suitable for ages 13 and up.
In this hilariously realistic Christmas movie, a new young couple struggles to get through visiting all four sets of divorced parents during their first Christmas together. Ages 13 and up.
The Night Before
This one is for the less-Christmas inclined adults. In this hilarious, and rather inappropriate, Christmas “dude” movie, three best friends decide to end their annual tradition of wild holiday partying, with just one last crazy Christmas eve in New York. Needless to say, things don’t quite go according to plan. Ages 16 and up.
