Date night, was there ever a more unromantic, less spontaneous phrase? But if you make one resolution this year it should be to schedule time together as a couple. And why not take the chance to enjoy hanging out with the person you love with a night at The Luna Cinema – our favourite open-air movie night. It has hosted screenings in some of the most magical settings, including Blenheim Palace and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. This Valentine’s Day it’s heading indoors to the Natural History Museum and the majestic Hintze Hall, home to the iconic 25-metre skeleton of ‘Hope’, the blue whale suspended in the air. You can cuddle up and watch some traditional (and, depending on the state of your marriage, not so traditional) Valentine’s Day films, including The Notebook, Pretty Woman, A Star is Born, Kill Bill and Thelma and Louise. It will be nice to talk about something other than the children.
Screenings will be held on the evenings of the 14th, 15th and 16th February.
£27.70 per person.
Where else can you watch your favourite rom-com while surrounded by some of history’s finest artefacts? Every guest gets a complimentary box of popcorn and access to the Natural History Museum’s blockbuster exhibition Life in the Dark, anytime from 14th to 24th February.
