From Polar Express to Die Hard in run-up to Christmas
Celebrate the festive season in style by tucking into the popcorn while you enjoy a Christmas film marathon at a revamped theatre in Staffordshire.

For the first time ever, Tamworth Assembly Rooms will be screening Christmas movies in its brand new on-site cinema – and nothing shouts out holiday season more than grabbing some snacks and getting cosy to watch a classic filmor two.
