Blackpool BID is calling all Sci-Fi and Movie fans, don’t dare miss all the action on St. John’s Square this Saturday.

We have an out of this world afternoon planned to compliment the opening of the Scene Movie Exhibition in the Winter Gardens which opens at 10:00 on Saturday. Click here for further information on Scene.

The action starts on St. John’s Square from 12:00 and throughout the afternoon, our huge outdoor cinema screen will be showing the latest Star Wars movie – ‘The Force Awakens’. This is a totally free showing and is sure to be  popular so do come early to get your seat for this exciting movie.

The star of the show is definitely Titan the Robot who is making a triumphant return to Blackpool. If you haven’t seen this huge robot in action you are in for a surprise as he strides around St. John’s Square in his own inimitable style. He is great fun and is quite a sight to see.

In addition there will be some great photo opportunities with characters from Star Wars and other favourite movies who will be out and about.

The amazing Optimus Prime from the Transformers franchise has kindly been loaned from the Scene Movie Exhibition and  will also be on St. John’s Square on Saturday. A rare opportunity to see him and another excellent photo opportunity.

Eileen Ormand, Blackpool’s Town Centre and BID Manager, said: “Blackpool BID is always looking for family entertainment and Sci-Fi Saturday promises to be great fun for all the family. The chance to see Star Wars the Force Awakens for free on a big outdoor screen is likely to attract a big audience and we are looking forward to an exciting day.

With Scene opening in the morning there will be some surprises throughout the day so don’t miss out, come on down to St John’s Square and join in all the fun.”

Zoom on down to Sci-Fi Saturday to enjoy this free event and hang out with some famous characters!
