What do The Holiday, Miracle on 34th Street and It's A Wonderful Life all have in common? Yes, they're all about Christmas, but these festive flicks just happen to be a part of the programme at Luna Cinema's winter pop-up, which you can find on Stoke Newington Road.

Still haven't had a taste of this Archway spot's delicious offering? Head north this winter, as not only will they be serving up their moreish black charcoal pizza, but you can even get your hands on bottomless prosecco as they screen classic '80s films.

Not only can you catch Home Alone, Love Actually and Elf at this Camden hangout, but you'll even be able to watch Die Hard and Gremlins. Expect a giant screen showing all of our favourites under a heated roof in the stunning rooftop garden.
