Whether you’re single or coupled up, curling up with your loved ones in front of an all-time classic movie is the perfect winter warmer and The Village Screen pop-up cinema will be transforming Victoria Baths into a charming, candlelit cinema this February for a romantic line up, alongside fantastic street food traders and entertainment.
The Edwardian grandeur of Manchester’s water palace will be the backdrop for enjoying these romantic films at their best, on the big screen! The Gala Pool makes a stunning setting for a memorable treat to enjoy with your loved ones or friends.
This dreamy weekend kicks off with a screening of Baz Luhrmann’s uber cool masterpiece, Romeo & Juliet. Set in the modern-day city of Verona Beach, the Montagues and Capulets are two feuding families, who children meet and fall in love. It is the classic story of two star crossed lovers but never was there a story of more woe than of Juliet and her Romeo.
Disney’s animated musical classic The Little Mermaid also comes to the big screen, where mermaid Ariel is fascinated with life on land. Ariel, Flounder and Sebastian take centre stage in this family-friendly bubble of fun, which will put a smile on everyone’s faces. And the cosiness will continue with an evening screening of hilarious 90’s romcom 10 Things I Hate About You. A modern remake of Shakespeare’s The Taming Of The Shrew, featuring Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles, this is the perfect teen angst movie set against an excellent 90’s modern rock soundtrack.
Ahead of each screening, there will be music and local street food to fall in love with from Mac Daddies, Dim Sum Su, Vaso Kitchen AND Drizzle City Bakes, plus a pop-up bar serving themed cocktails, hot chocolates, Prosecco and local beers.
