Join us on Friday 3rd December for our very special Dementia-Friendly screening of Elf in partnership with Alzheimer’s Society for Elf Day!

Buddy the Elf (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves.

Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father.

As it happens, his father is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman who is definitely on the Naughty List.

After a DNA test proves they are related, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.
