Step inside Bristol Museum & Art Gallery for your very own “Night at the Museum” to enjoy a truly special movie screening. Enter this magnificent space after hours, enjoy live performers and then take your seat in the Rear Hall to watch the film among the exhibits.

To get you in the Christmas spirit BFF are bringing two beloved festive classics to the Museum this December, finishing with the wintry rom-com The Holiday. With a great ensemble cast and a heart-warming, feel-good story, it’s perfect for warming up on a chilly December evening as you prepare for the weekend!

ABOUT THE FILM 2006 | 12A | 136 mins

When newspaper columnist Iris learns her ex is engaged, she decides to leave the UK over the Christmas season to get away with it all. She arranges a house swap with Amanda, a Hollywood producer going through similar heartbreak; as the two women settle into their temporary new surroundings, they both meet potential suitors – but will these budding romances last longer than the holidays?
