Movie Nights At The Museum Return This Valentine’s

February 14, 15 and 16 will see a very special programme from the Luna Cinema to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2019. The event at the Natural History Museum follows the very successful Halloween special in 2018.

The Luna Cinema special Valentine’s Day programme 2019 will bring film fans six screenings across three special evenings on February 14, 15 and 16. Following the successful Halloween special ‘Movie Nights at the Museum‘ (that showcased Blair Witch Project, Silence of the Lambs, Ghostbusters, and The Shining), the event returns to the Natural History Museum for a new series of unique experiences.

“After seeing how well received the Halloween screenings at Hintze Hall were, it made perfect sense to host a specially selected series of Valentines films, with hopefully something for everyone, no matter how loved-up you’re feeling,” commented George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema. “Apart from anything else the Hintze Hall is without doubt one of the most iconic spaces in London in which you can experience a classic film on the big screen.”

Perfect for both couples and groups of friends, the screenings include either romantic films, such as the romantic drama The Notebook (on February 14 at 19:00), 90s classic Pretty Woman (on February 14 at 21:45), 2018’s musical hit A Star Is Born (on February 16 at 19:00), and the ultimate Christmas romantic-comedy Love Actually (on February 16 at 21:55), or, at the opposite pole, the anti-Valentine’s screenings – Quentin Tarantino‘s Kill Bill: Volume 1 (on February 15 at 19:00) and Ridley Scott‘s Thelma and Louise (on February 15 at 21:30).

Movie Nights at the Museum will be held once again in a stunning setting in the iconic and majestic Hintze Hall underneath ‘Hope’, the 25metre long Blue Whale skeleton. A complimentary box of popcorn will be offered to each guest, as well as access to the Natural History Museum’s blockbuster exhibition, Life in the Dark, anytime from the 14th to the 24th February.

“Where else can you watch your favourite rom-com whilst being surrounded by some of history’s finest natural artefacts?,” said Head of Visitor Events at The Natural History Museum, Lucy Woodbridge.

Tickets for this special event are £27.70 per person (with an additional 10% discount for members of the Natural History Museum) and they need to be booked in advance.
