Film Preview: Miracle On 34th Street For Crisis

The people who brought you Midsummer Night Screen from Dalston Roof Park are putting on a screening of the original Miracle on 34th Street, to raise money for Crisis at Christmas.

Continuing with their record of films in interesting places, the night takes place in the excellently atmospheric surroundings of The Nave —  the lovely old deconsecrated church in Islington — which should be looking even more stunning bedecked in fairy lights and with a real Christmas tree. There'll be 1940s tunes spinning on the decks, plus mince pies, mulled wine, hot mulled apple and the chance to grab a snog under the mistletoe. And then you get the movie, which is a proper hankyfest.

Tickets are £8 on the door but if you're around London during Christmas and want to give more than your cash, Crisis need 8,000 volunteers between 23rd-30th December to help provide an estimated 3,000 homeless guests with meals, chat, entertainment and services like hairdressing and health check-ups.

Midsummer Night Screen's Christmas special starts at 7.30pm on Wednesday 21st December at The Nave, 1 St. Paul's Rd, Islington. Tickets cost £8 on the door or £6 advance.
