A VALENTINE’S Day movie special can be enjoyed at Loretto School Theatre in Musselburgh.

The school’s theatre is one of several alternative venues being used as parts of The Brunton theatre building on Ladywell Way are closed following a roof survey.

The audience is invited to celebrate romance with The Brunton’s screening of Notting Hill, starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, on February 14.

The evening gets under way with supper at the Bistro at The Brunton, which remains open for business.

Afterwards, The Brunton has laid on complimentary transport to Loretto School Theatre, where film-goers can enjoy the classic romantic comedy about a humble bookshop owner whose life is transformed after meeting the world’s most famous film star.

At the end of the screening, there will be transport provided to take audience members back to The Brunton.

Once supper is booked, the bistro will be in touch to confirm preferred dining time. The film is at 7.30pm.

Prior to Valentine’s Day, Loretto School Theatre hosts a Royal Opera House Live Screening of Manon on Wednesday at 7.15pm.

A Brunton spokesperson said: “This rendition of Abbé Prévost’s novel showcases Kenneth MacMillan’s finest work. The protagonist’s struggle to escape poverty makes Manon one of the most dramatic and devastating ballets of all time. This effect is further heightened by Nicholas Georgiadis’ evocative designs, which reflect the contrast between Manon’s impoverished origins and the lavish world she dreams to be part of.”

Also at Loretto School Theatre is the coming-of-age musical 13! performed by a cast of young people, backed by Brunton Performing Arts Network, from February 15 to 17 at 7.30pm.

Tickets for all The Brunton’s shows and events in Musselburgh and Haddington can be bought at thebrunton.co.uk, by calling 0131 652 5245 or at the box office counter at The Brunton.
