“It’s Tarantino’s gutter poetry that detonates True Romance. This movie is dynamite.” – Rolling Stone

In a non-traditional Valentine’s Day fashion, join us for this 1993 movie adventure written by Quentin Tarantino with a 92% Rotten Tomatoes score and a 93% Audience Score.
In this passionate, hard-edged story, two unlikely lovers, Clarence Worley (Christian Slater) and Alabama (Patricia Arquette), double-cross the Detroit mob by unwittingly stealing a load of valuable contraband.
The couple flees to Los Angeles, where their plan to sell the goods and vanish together forever sets them on a collision course with both gangsters and police.
