“This Valentine’s Day, celebrate the wonders of bulletproof  love with the Quentin Tarantino-scripted “lovers on the run” action classic, True Romance, starring Patricia Arquette and Christian Slater, on the big screen in 35mm!

Under the direction of tough guy filmmaker Tony Scott, the Quentin Tarantino-scripted True Romance was transformed into a film geek’s wet dream of a road movie – a violent, action-packed ode to exploitation cinema, trashy romance flicks and all-around Hollywood excess.

Geeky Detroit comic store clerk Clarence (Christian Slater) falls for ditzy hooker Alabama (Patricia Arquette), and before you can say “lovers on the run,” the young newlyweds are on a honeymoon road trip to L.A. with a stolen suitcase full of $5 million worth of mafia cocaine, which they plan on selling in order to ensure a bright future of marital bliss. Of course, the path to true romance never runs smooth, and soon the not-so-innocent lovers are caught between the police, the mob and the ghost of Elvis in a crazed adventure filled with wild car chases, kung fu vengeance and over-the-top Mexican standoffs! Will their love survive? Chock full of Tarantino’s trademark “pop culture in a blender” obsessions and colorfully profane dialogue, True Romance features a killer supporting cast that includes James Gandolfini, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Samuel L. Jackson and Christopher Walken. (Dir. by Tony Scott, 1993, USA, 121 mins., Rated R) “

Carolyn’s note: thoughts of what is “true romance” this Valentine’s Day. I met my husband on a cruise ship (really!). Relatives in my family met theirs at a college dormitory over breakfast, at a nightclub (naturally), on a farm being guest laborers, in a college class.  Where did you meet your “true love”?
