Calling all would-be Disney princesses…
Do you love classic Disney films? Like, really love them? Well, grab a pal and get excited, because on December 14th (update: it’s sold out but a second run is happening on Jan 11, 2020) an all-night Disney movie marathon is coming to the Prince Charles Cinema, off Leicester Square.
Offering no less than 12 hours and 10 minutes of enchanting, animated magic, the nostalgia-fest kicks off at 9:15pm (or 11.59pm for the Jan 11 edition) with a screening of The Little Mermaid. Then it’s onto the original Beauty & The Beast, Lilo & Stitch, Hercules, Emperor’s New Groove and Monsters Inc., before concluding (if you’re still awake) with Moana.
Pyjamas are not mandatory but they are, organisers remind us, ‘ace and comfy.’ You can also bring your own (non-noisy) food and (non-alcoholic) drink, as well as blankets and pillows. Make it all the way to the finish line at 9:25am, and you’ll get to appear in one of the cinema’s ‘marathon survivor photos’:
Night owls of a festive cinematic persuasion might prefer the cinema’s upcoming Christmas Pyjama Party (December 21), featuring the likes of both Home Alones (we shall speak nothing of the heinous missteps that are Home Alone 3, 4, and – impossibly – 5), Die Hard, Elf, and The Muppets Christmas Carol.
They’ve also got availability for an epic, 711 minute-long viewing of The Lord of the Rings trilogy (December 21 & 28)- and yes, they are the extended versions – and a Studio Ghibli pyjama party in February that should be something special. But there’s only one Disney, isn’t there?
Tickets cost £20 for non-members, but they tend to go extremely fast, so get your tickets from their website quickly.
