Shaw Cinemas – It’s a (Movie) Date!

A good old fashion movie and dinner date can be a classic and relaxing date night idea when you are already comfortable with each other and want to plan it cosy and low-stress during this day of romance. The darkness of the movie theatre sets the ambience for a great excuse to share some small touches; dig into a popcorn bucket and bump hands as you follow an action movie’s fast-paced scenes or give a cheeky nudge while you’re sharing a laugh as a comedy plays out on the big screen. Plus you’ll be able to bond over dinner as the movie gives you plenty to talk about.
