Valentine's at the BFI If you don't fancy getting all dolled up this Valentine's, then get comfy down at the BFI and immerse yourself in some classic silver screen romance. Whatever it is your heart may desire, the BFI have got something for everyone. The BFI Southbank will be screening four different films on Friday February 14th, each exploring different facets and ideas of love. These include a preview of Jim Jarmusch's vampiric love story, Only Lovers Left Alive, at 8.30pm, a new print of the classic 1957 musical Funny Face, starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire, at 6.20pm, a screening of lesbian romantic-comedy Margarita at 6.30pm and Out In The Dark, about an affair between an Palestinian man and his male Israeli lover, at 8.40pm.

 

About BFI Southbank

Originally the National Film Theatre, the BFI Southbank is the perfect film buff's cinema, with three large screens and a smaller studio space showing up to 2000 films a year ranging from classics to independent movies as well as gala openings. It's also the heart of London's many film festivals, and the place to go to see obscure arts films, classics, and seasons of works by great directors. More about BFI Southbank
