Die Hard (15)

‘Welcome to the party, pal!’ The unconventional festive favourite comes to Pictureville on 70mm film and digital 4K this Christmas.

Despite countless festive arguments, this masterclass of 80s action is undoubtedly a Christmas classic. When John McClane (Bruce Willis) joins his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) at a corporate Christmas party, the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists who take over the exclusive high-rise. Soon McClane realises there’s no one to save the hostages but him.

Note on 70mm screenings: We are delighted to be showing this 70mm print; however, please note that this is an archive print and has suffered some colour fade along with running scratches.

  • DIRECTOR: John McTiernan
