Now Showing February Movie Night at The Gates of Owings Mills
Last year, we shared ideas for various ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and this year we’re expanding that list by adding this list of 5 Romantic Movies to watch this month at your apartment here at The Gates of Owings Mills. If you’re not into romantic movies, don’t worry, we’ve got suggestions for you too!
5 Romantic Movies for Valentine’s Day
Shakespeare in Love (1998)
Shakespeare is short of cash, is out of ideas, and has a terrible case of writer’s block — and then he meets her, his ideal woman, his muse, who inspires him to write his greatest work, yet.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
Being Greek means even when you are dating, the whole family wants to know about it. Throw in the fact that he’s NOT a Greek, and what’s a girl to do? Perhaps a little Windex will solve the problem.
After a young man (Patrick Swayze) is murdered, his spirit stays behind to warn his lover (Demi Moore) of impending danger, with the help of a reluctant psychic (Whoopi Goldberg).
Somewhere in Time (1980)
A Chicago playwright uses self-hypnosis to find the actress whose vintage portrait hangs in a grand hotel. From a review: “The film captures the idea of a fine young man moving back among other time periods, and affirms that love is an undeniable force which goes beyond us, a force with no limit to the spiritual power, with no end to the potential of spiritual expansion.”
Roman Holiday (1953)
Starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn, this story of an overwhelmed, bored and sheltered princess who escapes her guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome is a wonderfully funny, romantic tale.
5 Movies to Watch if You Don’t Do Valentine’s Day
A Bridge Too Far (1977)
A historical telling of the failed attempt to capture several bridges on a road to Germany in World War II, in a campaign called Operation Market-Garden.
Archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones is hired by the US government to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis.
When his peaceful life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive and uncover his assailants.
The Green Berets (1968)
Col. Mike Kirby picks two teams of crack Green Berets for a mission in South Vietnam. First off is to build and control a camp that is trying to be taken by the enemy, the second mission is to kidnap a North Vietnamese General.
Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
Think Groundhog Day meets Independence Day — an alien race is assaulting Earth. Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over.
