The Muppet Christmas CarolU

Directed by Brian Henson | USA | 1992 | 1h 26m | Starring Michael Caine, Frank Oz, Dave Goelz

The best on-screen Dickens adaptation? One of Michael Caine’s finest performances? We think so! The Muppets tell their version of Dickens’s classic festive tale about a bitter old miser’s redemption. Gonzo, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang lead us through this heartwarming family film filled with memorable songs to get you in the mood for Christmas.

Reviews

‘Although the Muppets pile on the wit and child-friendly slapstick, they never dumb down, and never compromise their story’s literary origins.’
★★★★★
Charlotte Runcie, The Telegraph

‘There’s lots to love here, particularly Michael Caine’s deadly straight take on Scrooge.’
Henry Barnes, The Guardian

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
