Valentine's at the BFIComedian Miranda Hart chose a film and a meal at the BFI as her 'best place for a first date' and it's easy to see why. At the BFI this February 14th you can immerse yourself in some classic silver screen romance with two films from the Golden Age of Hollywood, 1938's Bringing up Baby and The Philadelphia Story, both starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. BFI Flare presents two LGBT features, Cloudburst, the endearing story of two women in their 70's and their journey to getting married and Plan B, an enchanting story of unexpected love in the 21st century. Eric Rohmer delves into the complicated side of love in My Girlfriend's Boyfriend and explores what happens when you fall for the wrong person.
