Christmas classics on Clayton Square big screen

TILL BELLS ring, are you listening? Or something like that.

Liverpool city centre stores are dangling a Christmas carrot of reindeers, movies and Titan the Robot to lure in shoppers as the big trolley dash 2012 gets under way. 

So, For the next four Thursdays the BBC Big Screen in Clayton Square is to show festive classics for free - so get your thermals on (from that stall just by Wetherspoons).

City Central BID, which represents retailers in the city centre, has commissioned the films to entertain people as they go about their late night Christmas shopping.

The first cinematic instalment is 1985's Santa Claus, The Movie, starring Dudley Moore as the chief elf to Santa. It will be screened tomorrow (Thurs Nov 29) at 12.30pm and again at 4pm.

The films are part of a free package of festive entertainment to run across four ‘Super Thursdays’ to get shoppers in the Christmas spirit.

  • Cairngorm Reindeers will be taking up residence in Queen Square from 4pm to 7pm tomorrow. It's a photo opp for the kids and  you can leave a gift as part of the Mission Christmas campaign. The reindeers will be back for the following three Thursdays.
  • Titan The Robot will be making a return after a two year gap, performing two half hour shows around Clayton Square at 5.30pm and 6.30pm. Titan will also be performing for the next four Thursdays.

'Miracle on 34th Street' (the proper 1947 one) was on Film Four last week. Made me blub like a damned foreigner.

Now THAT is a classic.
