Celebrate the festive season with ACMI as we settle in to watch the Christmas favourite you voted for

We asked, you voted and the verdict is in: we're "eating junk and watching rubbish".

Just kidding, Home Alone is the 1990 holiday romp directed by Chris Columbus and written and produced by John Hughes that has become a much-watched and quoted Christmas classic. It's been 30 years since a cherub-cheeked Macauly Caulkin was left home alone for the first time by Moira Rose – sorry, Catherine O’Hara – sparking Kevin’s ongoing war with Harry and Marv. ⁣

Don't get left behind like Kevin, be sure to join our host, inimitable lover of pop-culture Maria Lewis, for this festive watch party.
