SYNOPSIS:

Join us Dendy Cinemas Portside Wednesday, November 15th at 10:30 am and again at 6:30 pm for the special preview screening of The Man Who Invented Christmas.

With Christmas Cake and Tea in the morning and a yuletide cocktail in the evening!Based on the novel by Les Standiford, THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS tells the story of how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens from TV’s Downton Abbey) actually revived the holiday of Christmas with his self-published novel, A Christmas Carol. Facing pressure with looming debt, a feckless father (Jonathan Pryce) and recent critical failures, Dickens confronts his past by conjuring up fantastic characters including Ebenezer Scrooge (Christopher Plummer), for his now classic Christmas tale.

Full of wit and warmth, THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS will bring out the holiday spirit in everyone.
