Celebrate 20 years of Notting Hill with this lovely anniversary screening.
When it comes to romantic comedies, you’re sort of spoiled for choice with your About Times, Bridget Joneses, and Love Actuallys. Still, for the kind of comforting, give-love-a-chance story that’s heartwarming without being bum-clenchingly cringe, it has to be Notting Hill. The classic rom-com turns 20 this year, and this wonderful anniversary screening is the best way to celebrate – tickets are available here.
While actually living in Notting Hill is a far-off pipe dream for most, we can nonetheless enjoy the charming tale of floppy-haired bookseller Hugh Grant and glamorous actress Julia Roberts, especially when it’s hosted in the gorgeous Foundation Coffee House in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The cosy screening room is the perfect spot to watch the story unfold, especially with complimentary popcorn available.
Handily, since Foundation is also a top-notch cocktail bar, you can sip on a delightful libation – or drown the sorrows of your own inability to find that kind of love. The choice is yours!
