As Valentine’s Day approaches we’re sharing the love by giving away a pair of tickets to see one of the most romantic movies of all time, Titanic, alongside a host of loved-up extras at the all new Valentine’s Movie Experience.
Building on the success of the Magical Christmas Movie Experience in December, Mayfield Depot has been transformed into a romantic hideaway, guaranteed to get you in the mood for love.
The former railway depot near Piccadilly, is laying out the red carpet to everyone who wants to celebrate love and romance. And because you can never get too much loving, it’s welcoming couples not just for one night, but five, starting on Wednesday 13 February.
The evening begins with a romantic walk through a snow-kissed forest to reach the pop-up cinema. There is warm welcome from a live band playing love songs. And for Dirty Dancing fans there is an added bonus at each of its three film screenings over the festival, where you can pick up tips on how to recreate some of the film’s flirty dancefloor moves with live dancers mirroring the on-screen action.
Music may be the food of love, but the venue hasn’t forgotten your taste buds. And once inside, there is a tasty array of street food for sale, including woodfired pizzas and Jamaican barbecue, gourmet burgers and hot dogs. As well as exclusive candy-floss roses to put the sweet in to sweet-heart.
If you want to mimic a night in on a night out, there are bean-bag seats where you can take a hot drink or cocktail and snuggle-up under a cosy blanket to watch the film. Choice of movies include the Oscar-winning smash hit, Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet; Pretty Woman featuring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts; Beauty & The Beast with Emma Watson; and Notting Hill with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts.
And on Valentine’s Day (Thursday 14 February) there is a double bill of The Bodyguard with Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, followed by Dirty Dancing starring Patrick Swayze.
After a couple of hours snuggled-up in the city’s romantic cocoon, we wouldn’t be surprised if you get the urge to make your feelings known in a public declaration of love. So, dig deep for your inner poet because there is a chance for guests to run personal messages and videos on the big screen.
Organiser, Steven Matthews, says: “Love is all around as we countdown to our very special movie experience this month. All in all, it’s going to be quite a February.”
The Valentine’s Movie Experience, Mayfield Depot (near Manchester Piccadilly) runs from Wednesday 13 February through to Sunday 17 February 2019. Tickets for all the films start from £14.99. See website for details.
