Love is in the air this week in New York City as Valentine’s Day approaches. If you are scrambling to make plans for you and your significant other, looking for something off-the-beaten path to do, or want to forget that it’s Valentine’s Day all together and mingle with other anti-Valentines Day compatriots, we’ve compiled a list of alternative ways to celebrate that will meet all of those needs.

Take your partner out for a classic dinner and a movie date at an all-in-one location, Nitehawk Cinema, Brooklyn’s premier dine-in theater spot. The Williamsburg location will feature Valentine’s drink specials and exciting movie screening events starting February 9th that run through the weekend as part of the theater’s Love is Love series. During brunch there will be light hearted film fare such as rom-coms Notting Hill and Love, Simon, while the darker side of romance is explored in midnight and evening screenings with movies like Crash, Bound and Only Lovers Left Alive. here.You can see showtimes and purchase tickets
