Join us for an annual Valentines Day classic at Academy Cinemas!

This year we'll be showing Louis Malle's controversial & acclaimed 1958 romance The Lovers starring Jeanne Moreau. Winner of Best Actress and the Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival.

"A deeply felt and luxuriously filmed fairy tale for grown-ups, perched on the edge between classical and New Wave cinemas, The Lovers presents Moreau as a restless bourgeois wife whose eye wanders from both her husband and her lover to an attractive passing stranger (Jean-Marc Bory).

Thanks to its frank sexuality, The Lovers caused quite a stir, being censored and attacked for obscenity around the world. If today its shock has worn off, its glistening sensuality and seductive storytelling haven’t aged a day."
