Cadbury Presents The Traveling Cinema - Picturehouse Spotlight

Cadbury Presents The Traveling Cinema

Cadburys are pleased to present three days of festival films on the Brighton seafront on Thursday 7, Friday 8 and Saturday 9 December.

This December Cadbury will be visiting a selection of UK cities, bringing a line up of Christmas classics with the incredible Travelling Cinema, an articulated lorry that magically turns into a 100-seater luxury cinema experience! There’s nothing quite like a festive film to get you in the seasonal spirit and with titles such as Home Alone, The Muppet Christmas Carol and Elf they’ll be sprinkling a little seasonal cheer at every stop, along with some Cadbury treats.

These screenings are part of Cadbury’s annual countdown to Christmas, Cadvent. In the build up to the big day, wishes will be granted up and down the country with their best advent calendar yet. Take a peek through the calendar doors to see the wishes granted so far…
