Trio of beloved romance films return to UK cinemas for Valentine’s Day

Looking for a lowkey way to celebrate? This isn't a bad shout.

A trio of beloved romance films are returning to cinemas across the UK today to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

In case you missed it the other day, it was revealed that cult-classic late 90s sitcom 10 Things I Hate About You would be making a cinema comeback nationwide this week in a bid to properly – and quite rightly – celebrate 25 years since it was first released, as well as the international day of love itself, Valentine’s Day.

And now, two other massively-popular films are set to join the Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Heath Ledger-led gem for one night only.

That’s right – Titanic and Notting Hill are back on the big screen tonight (14 February).

To kick things off, you and your loved ones can head to your nearest Greater Manchester cinema, grab some popcorn, and sit down to watch the timeless love story of Jack and Rose is back set against the ill-fated maiden voyage of the so-called ‘unsinkable’ Titanic – which we all know, at the time, was the largest moving object ever built.


James Cameron’s multi Academy Award-winner will be on the big screen in 3D 4K HDR and at a high-frame rate, which means you can see the magic of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s performances up close like never before.

For lovers of musicals, the 2012 film adaptation of on one of the most celebrated productions of all time, Les Misérables, is also being screened today.


But, if you’re looking for something a little more uplifting to watch, and fancy seeing a film where the title doesn’t literally translate to ‘The Miserables’ with your Valentine tonight instead, then surely is doesn’t get much better than Notting Hill?

Often dubbed ‘the ultimate romcom’ by film fans, the 1999 Richard Curtis-directed flick stars Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts in two of their most famous and best-loved leading roles, and is known and loved by people the world over.

And it’s also another classic that’s turning 25 this year too, so that’s even more of a reason to celebrate.

All four films are being screened at Vue Cinemas across the UK on selected times tonight – including Manchester’s Printworks.

Speaking on the films’ Valentine’s Day returns, Mike Anton, who is General Manager at Vue Manchester Printworks, said: “We’re thrilled to be showing these classic romance films this Valentine’s Day, but no matter who you choose to spend the day with, these titles are sure to bring back fond emotions for lovers of film. 

“There’s nothing quite like the magic of the big screens to celebrate Valentine’s.”
