Classic Christmas moves to be shown at Dundalk Omniplex

Christmas time is one of the busiest times of the year in cinemas, and with movies like this we can see why. After some requests, Dundalk Omniplex have put together a round of up some of the big movies they'll be showing this Christmas. 

Home Alone 2 Lost In New York (20th – 24th December)

Omniplex is wrapping up the #BringItBack Christmas Season with Home Alone 2!

In this sequel to the highly successful Home Alone, child-star Macaulay Culkin returns, in the role that made him famous, as Kevin McCallister, a precocious Chicago boy who mistakenly boards a plane to New York while the rest of his large family wings to Florida. In Manhattan, he takes up residency at the Plaza Hotel, but his posh holiday is disrupted by the re-appearance of crooks Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern).

Our final screenings nationwide this Christmas eve will be a special showing of Home Alone 2!

Little Women (From 26th December)

Little Women explores the lives of the March sisters in 1860s New England, in the aftermath of the American Civil War. According to one of its producers, the new adaptation focuses more on the sisters' young adult lives, particularly after Meg, Jo, and Amy leave their family home. The film jumps back and forth in time and focuses more on themes than narrative.

With a stellar cast and a smart, sensitive retelling of its classic source material, Greta Gerwig's Little Women proves some stories truly are timeless.

The Gentlemen (From 1st Jan 2020)
