Christmas Cinema Party!

Happy F***ing Christmas

London’s legendary pop party teams up with Time Out Live and MGM HD for this epic Santa–shaped shindig at the beautiful art deco Troxy Cinema. Take your seats from 8.30pm for a screening of the classic Christmas comedy movie Bad Santa starring Billy Bob Thornton. Suitably seasonal food and drink served through out. After the film, The Troxy will be transformed into the best party ever! That means, a bombastic, hedonistic, heart-pounding, super disco hosted by Sean Rowley with djs and performers to make you go dizzy with glee!. There’s also a (Bad) Santa’s grotto plus fancy dress competitions , cabaret and photo booths, all with enough festive cheer to fell all the elves in Lapland.

After our debut into the world of the silver screen back in August with the Guilty Pleasures Cinema Party where we screened Madonna’s Desperately Seeking Susan and partied like it was 1985, we had so much fun we thought we’d do it all over again. But with added tinsel, eggnog and Christmas magic.

On Saturday 15th December in collaboration with Time Out Live and MGM HD, London’s decadent Troxy Cinema will be throwing its doors open to GP merry makers for the second cinematic outings at the Guilty Pleasures Christmas Cinema Party where we’ll be raising a cup of seasonal cheer for the Christmas cracker that is Bad Santa!

Yes, that potty-mouthed, badly behaved, perma-booze-breathed characterisation of Christmas gone DRUNK WRONG and Billy Bob Thornton’s finest moment will be the big screen action and cue to our debauched party of festive fun!

As well as the film, we’ve got a whole night of seasonal silliness planned with suitably indulgent food and drink, cabaret capers from The Lipsinkers and djs & hosts Sean Rowley and Anna Greenwood all putting the bang in your cracker setting you up for a ding dong of a do!


If you fancy making a real night of it and bringing your friends or family or work mates or ALL then we’ve got group tickets and packages where you can have your own space at the party and make the most of the evening’s revelries. Email and she can fill you in with facts galore and book you in to the party in super style.

FInally, it wouldn’t be a GP party if we didn’t dress up, so feel free to come dressed as relatives of the Claus clan, or elves, angels, puddings etc, or just mummifying yourself in a job lot of tinsel – all seasonally affected carol singing calamities welcome!

So come all ye faithful and let’s get rocking around the Christmas tree and have ourselves a (bau)ball!
