Valentine's at the BFI

Comedian Miranda Hart chose a film and a meal at the BFI as her 'best place for a first date' and it's easy to see why. At the BFI this February 14th you can immerse yourself in some classic silver screen romance with two films from the Golden Age of Hollywood, 1938's Bringing up Baby and The Philadelphia Story, both starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. BFI Flare presents two LGBT features, Cloudburst, the endearing story of two women in their 70's and their journey to getting married and Plan B, an enchanting story of unexpected love in the 21st century. Eric Rohmer delves into the complicated side of love in My Girlfriend's Boyfriend and explores what happens when you fall for the wrong person.

About BFI Southbank

Originally the National Film Theatre, the BFI Southbank is the perfect film buff's cinema, with three large screens and a smaller studio space showing up to 2000 films a year ranging from classics to independent movies as well as gala openings. It's also the heart of London's many film festivals, and the place to go to see obscure arts films, classics, and seasons of works by great directors. More about BFI Southbank
