Valentine’s Day at the Light House Cinema presents:
3pm The War of the Roses
Danny DeVito’s comedy-noir The War of the Roses, a pitch-perfect satire on the American Dream. Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas star in this fascinating inversion of their epic romances in Romancing The Stone and Jewel of the Nile with a hilariously dark look at a couple going through the worst divorce ever committed to the silver screen.
5.30pm The Birdcage
A film that celebrates love in all its forms. A big-hearted comedy from director Mike Nichols, The Birdcage is a hilarious comedy about a panic-stricken flamboyant gay couple who strive to impress their son’s stiff future in-laws. With an exceptional cast – Robin Williams, Nathan Lane, Gene Hackman and more – and some of the most endlessly quotable one-liners, this is a colourful, warm and just downright lovely film to celebrate the things we do for love.
Despite what the movies often tell us, true love is not just for the socially capable heroes and heroines. Jean-Pierre Jeunet brings us a true hero for oddballs everywhere with Amelie. This gorgeous French comedy stars a luminous Audrey Tautou as a strange girl whose path to true love is scattered with whimsical adventures. A modern classic, Amelie is the perfect Valentine’s Day film, and one that’s sure to leave you with a smile on your face.
