Courtyard Playhouse Theatre

Valentines Vintage Film Night

We want to keep Valentines Day this year nice and simple (whilst still keeping it fun and special)! So instead of the classic dinner and flower idea, why not suggest something a little more unique? Film night and popcorn, sounds pretty good to us! The 1953 classic, ‘Roman Holiday’ (starring our favourite icon, Audrey Hepburn!) starts at 7:30pm, and is followed by the 1957 film ‘An Affair to Remember’ at 9:30pm (don’t forget tissues…).

When: Sunday, 14 February
Where: The Courtyard Playhouse, Al Quoz Industrial 1, Street 4B, Dubai, UAE
How much: Each screening is AED 100, and includes a welcome drink and free popcorn.
