Great Movies for Valentine’s Day Couples celebrate Valentine’s Day in a variety of ways. Some may jet off to a romantic locale while others might enjoy a night out on the town at a nearby restaurant. Some couples feel it’s more romantic to stay in for Valentine’s Day, preferring some quality time together as they enjoy a good meal and a favorite film in the comforts of home. Those who want a romantic movie to set the mood might want to consider the following options. “Somewhere in Time” (1980): Starring Christopher Reeve, this drama surrounds a Chicago playwright who meets an old woman on the opening night of one of his plays. The woman presses a gold pocket watch into his hand before begging the young playwright to return to her. Years later, the playwright is staying at a hotel and becomes taken with a young woman in a photograph, only to learn that the young woman is the same mysterious older woman who visited on opening night all those years ago. “West Side Story” (1961): One of Hollywood’s many tales of forbidden love, this classic won Best Picture after being adapted for the big screen. The score alone is enough for film aficionados, but those who also want a story won’t be disappointed by this musical tale of two youngsters who fall in love despite being from rival New York City gangs.

earned an Oscar for his performance in the film, which is also credited for helping to revive Hepburn’s career. “Casablanca” (1942): Perhaps no film is more synonymous with romance than this classic starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman as former lovers who reconnect one night in a pressure-packed African encounter during World War II. The two ex-lovers still harbor feelings for one another, though Bergman’s Ilsa has moved on and married a resistance leader who needs the help of Bogart’s Rick to escape Nazi forces hot on his trail. The film features many classic moments. “The Princess Bride” (1987): Couples who prefer a love story via fairy tale might want to consider this Rob Reiner-directed film starring Cary Elwes as a farm boy who falls in love with Buttercup, the beautiful daughter of his employer. An ensemble cast that memorably includes Billy Crystal, Mandy Patinkin and pro wrestler Andre the Giant contributes to this hilarious classic that follows the farm boy’s heroic efforts to be with the woman he loves.

“The Philadelphia Story” (1940): Featuring screen legends Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn and James Stewart, the movie focuses on the complications that arise as a socialite prepares to marry. Cary Grant plays the ex-husband of Hepburn, who must deal with the simultaneous arrival of both Grant and Stewart, a journalist who arrives to get the scoop on her pending nuptials. Stewart
