WITH THE festive period upon us and in full swing we have plenty for great films and events to keep you’ll entertain in the run-up to Christmas.

After the success of the 2017 remake Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle we see the fantastic cast including Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart and Jack Black  return for Jumanji: The Next Level (12a).

Unknown to his friends, Spencer kept the pieces of the Jumanji video game and one day repaired the system in the basement of his grandfather’s house.

When Spencer’s friends Bethany, Fridge, and Martha arrive, they find Spencer missing and the game running and decide to re-enter Jumanji to save him.

Spencer’s grandfather Eddie and his friend Milo Walker hear the commotion and inadvertently get sucked into the game too, before any of Spencer’s friends can select their avatars.

With a new quest offered to them by Nigel Billingsley, the teenaged friends must help Eddie and Milo get used to their in-game avatars, get them to help find Spencer and Bethany, and escape Jumanji once again.

Jumanji: The Next Level is released on December 13.

The next Keighley Film Club screening is on Sunday December 15, and will be On The Basis of Sex (12a).

This is the true story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her struggles for equal rights, and the early cases of a historic career that lead to her nomination and confirmation as US Supreme Court Associate Justice.

There is something about Christmas and ballet – I believe they just go hand-in-hand – so we have two amazing broadcasts straight from the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden..

The first will be the charming and funny returning classic Coppélia (12a) on December 10 at 7.15pm, a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls.

The intricate choreography is set to Delibes’ delightful score and shows off the technical precision and comedic timing of the Paul ballet company stop

Osbert Lancaster’s designs bring a colourful storybook world to life in this Christmas treat for the whole family.

We finish 2019’s Royal Opera Ballets with Peter Wright’s interpretation of the Christmas favourite The Nutcracker (12a) broadcast on December 17.

Peter Wright’s interpretation of The Nutcracker has been enchanting children and adults alike since its first performance by The Royal Ballet in 1984.

Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet combined with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, iconic score is presented in a festive period setting with vivid designs to make this a charming and magical production.

Recorded in 2016, this special performance celebrated Peter Wright’s 90th birthday, and will be broadcast with new features.

Don’t forget advance tickets for all our upcoming events can be purchased from our website nm-cinemas.co.uk which also has details of our sister cinema in Skipton, The Plaza.
