We The Curious Big Screen – At The Movies

It’s winter, and that means just one thing – FIVE Christmas films on the Big Screen at We The Curious! Head over to Millennium Square to soak up the atmosphere of the Winter Fair, complete with the big wheel, Aprés Bar, food cabins, and the Ice Rink – all while you watch the film! With capacity for 300 people to view the film comfortably, seating will be limited so its recommended to arrive early and bring your own blankets/deckchairs/beanbags.
