If you are looking for a break when stocking up on Christmas presents, then why not pop into the Guildhall and catch one of this year’s Christmas films – as voted by you.

The Guildhall cinema showcases a range of independent and mainstream films aimed at all the family throughout the year.

This year votes for Gloucester’s favourite film have flooded in and the winning films are...believe it or not...Die Hard and Die Hard2.

Viewers wanted to see New York City Detective John McClane battle against terrorists to spend time with his wife for Christmas in action classics, Die Hard and Die Hard 2.

These two firm favourites will also be accompanied by two films with more of a festive feel the classic Miracle on 34th Street and The Polar Express.

Councillor Paul James, Leader and Cabinet Member for Regeneration said: “The people have spoken and this year’s Christmas films as voted by the people of Gloucester are Die hard and Die Hard 2.

“I still find it amazing that many people that live in the city have not been to the cinema at the Guildhall, or know that one exists showing a range of new and favourite films. It has the atmosphere and intimacy of a 100-seat cinema set in the grandeur of an old council chamber.”

Die Hard (15) will be showing on Friday 13th December at 7:45pm, Miracle on 34th Street (U) will show on Saturday 14th December at 10:45am, The Polar Express (U) at 3pm on Saturday 14th December and Die Hard 2 (15) on Saturday 14th December at 7:45pm.

Prices are £6.50 and £ 5.50 (concessions), £4 (Under 16s, The Polar Express only). Visitors can also take advantage of the screen tea prices for Miracle on 34th Street and The Polar Express which includes a hot drink and a piece of cake or a mince pie from the café-bar, priced at £7.50 and £6.50 (concessions). During the weekend the café-bar will be serving mulled wine and mulled cider.
