Part of QUAD’s ‘LOVE’ season, The Shop Around The Corner is set in a lovingly evoked Budapest in the run-up to Christmas. The delicately observed comedy focuses on the various obstacles blocking the path of potential lovers James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, fellow workers in a gossip-ridden emporium unaware they’re in fact courting one another by mail in an anonymous correspondence. An exquisitely romantic depiction of the old central Europe and perfect seasonal fare. The Shop Around The Corner (U) screens at QUAD from Friday 4th until Sunday 6th December.
White Christmas stars Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye as a song and dance act charged alongside a sisters’ double act (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen) with saving a failing Vermont.
