The Village Screen will be popping up this February inside one of Manchester’s most historical and spectacular locations – Gorton Monastery – for a spot of Anti-Valentine’s fun. Audiences will step inside the stunning Grade II listed building, surrounded by beautiful stained glass windows and magical candlelight, to uncover nostalgic films in a stunning setting.
If you’re single or coupled up and fancy doing something a bit different for Valentine’s, why not ditch your usual dinner plans and enjoy a screening of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet on Friday 9th February, an afternoon screening of Sister Act on Saturday 10th February or an evening screening of Four Weddings and a Funeral on Saturday 10th February. Sister Act is suitable for those aged 8+. Evening screenings are suitable for those aged 16+.
The Village Screen’s DJ will be spinning the best Valentine’s classics before each event and there will be street food to fall in love with by Dim Sum Su and Shoot the Bull. The Monastery’s bar will be open serving local beers, wines, Prosecco and soft drinks plus The Monastery’s Victorian Pantry will be serving hot drinks and cakes.
The Monastery will be heated for an extra cosy experience. Audiences are encouraged to dress up warm as all food vendors will be situated outdoors.
