RAD Valentines: Romeo + Juliet & Heathers

RAD Valentines: Romeo + Juliet & Heathers at Gorilla, Manchester, 14 February 2017, from £6.00 - Book now

RAD Screenings line up a tantalising double-bill at Gorilla. Chock full of teenage heartthrobs, this retro selection should set off nostalgia pangs for anybody who grew up in the 80s or 90s.

First up is Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet which stars a fresh faced Leo DiCaprio with Homeland’s Claire Danes in an updated gangland version of the Shakespeare classic. An explosion of style and ideas, this modern day retelling still feels fresh and modern twenty years on.

For the second film of the evening, RAD take us back to the the 80s, with classic high-school movie Heathers starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. Darkly comedic, the film’s Mean Girls-esque plot goes to places that Lindsay Lohan and co. wouldn’t dare dream of.

So invite your Romeo or Juliet on the ultimate RAD date, with stylish, romantic movies served up alongside Gorilla’s top-notch cocktails and food.
