The film is mainly based in Seattle City of US, but focuses on a planned trip to Antarctica which eventually comes to fruition in a bizarre and unexpected way.

This movie focuses on United Kingdom’s capital, but we feel Paddington really captures the essence of the city and what it means to be a Londoner. After or during watching we will fall in love with this little bear’s personality, and the movie is full to the brim with excellent British comedy. We will especially love the scenes set at the Natural History Museum, Portobello Road and Primrose Hill and many more.
- Santorini, Greece – Mama Mia!
Although it is actually set on the island of Skopelos, the scenery will bring back memories of popular holiday destinations, such as Santorini, Rhodes and Mykonos. This bold musical will transport us right there with an ABBA soundtrack that’s impossible not to sing along. Hawaii, Polynesia – Moana. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s songs will quickly get stuck in your head as we watch this story unfold.
- Rome, Italy – Roman Holiday
We can’t go wrong with a classic Audrey Hepburn film, and Roman Holiday puts a spotlight on the Italian capital – Rome. It features Hepburn as a bored princess who escapes from her guardians to explore the city and eventually fall in love with a reporter, played by Gregory Peck. This film is the perfect antidote for those of us missing our European city breaks.
