Valentine’s Cinema at Victoria Baths

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Valentine's Cinema at Victoria Baths, Manchester 14 — 15 February 2020 Tickets from £8 — Book now

The Village Screen present their annual cosy Valentine’s Day pop-up at Victoria Baths, bringing street food, booze, DJs and, of course, movies to the spectacular listed Edwardian swimming pool. Seated either on the venue’s balconies, or in deck chairs along the bottom of the pool itself, filmgoers can book now for screenings of Tony Scott’s romantic pop-thriller True Romance (delivered from a Quentin Tarantino script) on Friday 14th February, or Mellissa McCarthy breakout vehicle Bridesmaids the following night, on Saturday 15th February.

Decked out for the occasion, the pop-up cinema works equally well for date nights with-a-twist and groups of friends looking for a good time. The Village Screen have developed relationships with some of Manchester’s finest street food vendors and you can expect tempting themed cocktails to compliment the flicks. Bring a blanket, hat, scarf and gloves through – it gets cold in the pool, even with the heating on.
