One of the best things about winter is that we always have good excuse to stay at home, cook a hearty meal and catch up on all those TV shows and classics always left for ‘next time’. Take your pick from one of these great classic flics.
Home Alone (1990)
How cute was Macaulay Culkin in this film, left at home during Christmas while his family goes on vacation – and forgets him. Lighthearted and fun.
Stand by Me (1986)
A classic tale about friendship, trust and adventure in the heart of rural America – and all those wonderful soundtracks that you never get tired of singing along to.
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
Hope is sometimes the only thing we have left. Follow the story of George Bailey as he learns who he is, his impact on people and just what life is all about.

Love, deception and heartache warm up the Soviet winters during the Russian Revolution. The young Dr. Zhivago falls in love with a woman he can not have, only to be reunited with her years later.
Forrest Gump (1994)
We all learned how being ‘challenged’ is really just a state of mind. When there is a will, there’s a way. Follow the story of Forrest Gump, the young man whose charm, courage and audacity showed us that anything is possible and no one has the power to tell us otherwise.
A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
This 1960s animated musical takes us back to the Peanuts comic strip some of us grew up watching. Sweet Charlie Brown is down and low on Christmas spirit. When his friend suggests he direct the school Christmas play, he learns an important lesson on what really matters.
Edward Scissorhands (1990)

Groundhog Day (1993)
If you could relive one day over again, would you? What if you were forced to relive it until you got it right? Follow Bill Murray’s character Phil, as he deals with this one day in the middle of a blizzard on a work assignment.
When Harry Met Sally (1989)
You’ll laugh, cry and identify in this one. Can men and women be friends? Maybe they can be both, lovers and friends. This film also shows us how relationships worked before social media, texts, Whatsapp and all the rest.
