Brief Encounter

Valentine’s Day Special
A glass of fizz (or soft drink) is included with each ticket

Laura (Celia Johnson), an ordinary housewife, set in her suburban ways, meets a doctor (Trevor Howard) who is also conventionally married. Despite themselves, they fall in love. Their social conditioning forces them to part forever and remember forever the love that can never be but that can never be spoiled.

The Guardian poll found it ranked as the most romantic film ever, ahead of even Casablanca and Gone With The Wind.
