‘In The Mood For Love’ is set in Hong Kong in 1962 and filmed with beauty. Prepare to be transported with this melancholic tale of love and loneliness.

Wong Kar Wai’s romantic masterpiece. Two neighbours (Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung) betrayed by their spouses form a tender, reserved friendship, in the claustrophobic, lonely setting of their apartment block. Separated by convention and shyness, the ache of uncertain love is explored with almost unbearable understatement. Leung, the quiet, lonely, impossibly handsome hero, whispering his secret into a wall. How can anyone be so sad, when they look so good? A Brief Encounter for the 21st Century.

Wong Kar-Wai, 2000 | PG | 96 mins

Doors open at 7pm, film starts at 8:30pm.

Tickets (£15 + £1.50 booking fee) include musical entertainment before the film. Premium tickets (£25 + £2.50 booking fee) also include seating and a Sipsmith/Fever-Tree G&T on arrival.

Street food vendors will operate from the courtyard offering a range of delicious hot food for purchase. Snacks such as ice cream and popcorn will also be available to buy, along with a variety of alcoholic beverages, teas, coffee and soft drinks. The Sipsmith Sipping Bar will be on hand and visitors may bring their own refreshments too. Please note that glass bottles may be included in picnics but cups must be plastic.

The galleries will be closed during our screening but the cloakroom and facilities will be available.
