Dock Pop-up Floating Cinema

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Nothing says Christmas more than snuggling up and watching your favourite festive movies with your loved ones.

Come join us this December as we bring back our popular pop up floating cinema with Independant Liverpool, for a week of Christmas movies under the twinkling lights of Royal Albert Dock Liverpool From 27 November – 10 December.

You can enjoy festive classics such as Elf, Love Actually, Die Hard and The Holiday, plus family favourites Home Alone, The Grinch, Muppets Christmas Carol and The Polar Express with our Dock restaurants on hand offering you a delicious array of festive front row treats, drinks and refreshments. 

We also have a selection of relaxed morning screenings which will include slight adjustments to the environment for children, young people and adults with autism or additional needs who would benefit from: a less crowded area, low lighting and volume, no trailers, allowance for increased levels of movement and noise and a supportive staff team.

Whilst you’re here, why not make a day of it and enjoy all the Dock has to offer. Roam around the shops on the inner-quay which will be beautifully-lit with nearly a million Magical Lights, or watch our heart-warming Christmas projection, ‘Love Returns’, which will be cast against the inner-quay side of the Mersey Maritime Museum. If you’re feeling peckish or looking for a festive tipple, head to one of the many restaurants and bars for an indulgent feast, light snack or a cocktail or two.

Tickets are on sale NOW.
