The Luna Cinema has long been the premier movie specialists for film fans around the country. Every year, their slate has included some of the best venues and locations coupled up with a heady mix of modern and contemporary classics. They have just announced a brief residency at London’s world famous Natural History Museum in February for a series of loved-up (and anti-Valentine’s) treats.
On the evenings of 14th, 15th and 16th of February, film fans can enjoy either the perfect romantic film or a night of Anti-Valentines celebration, depending on your mood!
The titles on The Luna Cinema Valentine’s slate include 90’s classic Pretty Woman with Richard Gere and a star-making Julia Roberts, Ryan Gosling & Rachel McAdams in the tear-jerking The Notebook, smash hit award-season contender A Star Is Born and the ultimate rom-com Love Actually.
For those looking for something a little less lovey-dovey, there will be anti-Valentines screenings of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill: Vol 1 and Ridley Scott’s Thelma and Louise.
The films will be screened in the iconic and majestic Hintze Hall, underneath the jaw-dropping 25m long Blue Whale skeleton, called ‘Hope’. Every guest will also receive a complimentary box of popcorn and access to the Natural History Museum’s blockbuster exhibition, ‘Life in the Dark’ anytime from the 14th to the 24th February.
George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, said;
“We’re so excited to be teaming up with the Natural History Museum again for our Valentine’s cinema season. 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! 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.”
Lucy Woodbridge, Head of Visitor Events at The Natural History Museum, comments;
“Movie Nights is a truly unique experience, where else can you watch your favourite rom-com whilst being surrounded by some of history’s finest natural artefacts? We are really excited to be partnering with The Luna Cinema once again following the huge success of our Halloween season. Together, we will be producing a series of romance fuelled screenings which are not to be missed – it’s going to be a special event in an even more special location.”
Ticket prices are £27.70 per person, and members of the Natural History Museum will receive an additional 10% discount. To book tickets and for more information on all of the films in their slate, check out www.thelunacinema.com
