Want to catch a Christmas movie on the big screen? Then we're here to help with the ultimate round-up of every Christmas film screening in Ireland this year.

For once, we all here in U HQ are in agreement; the build-up to Christmas is way, way better than the day itself. I mean sure, the whole running around town trying to buy presents isn't ideal but that's nothing a good aul Christmas film and a glass of mulled wine can't fix. What better way to get in the yuletide spirit than going to the cinema to see your favourite Christmas film on the big screen.
