Whether writhing with Valentine's fever or suffering from love- sick blues, a galaxy of films being screened tomorrow are guaranteed to pander to your romantic needs. The NFT is showing classic weepies Brief Encounter (4pm) and Casablanca (6.30pm), juxtaposed with the sexually dynamic Bound (8.30pm). Cheaper thrills (pounds 2.50 a seat) await visitors to the Prince Charles cinema, which offers a triple bill featuring quirky romantic comedy Some Like It Hot (12.10pm), big brother Fiennes' The English Patient (2.30pm), and a double fix for Leonardo addicts with the star-crossed lovers of William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet (5.35pm, above) and Titanic (7.55pm). For singles hoping to escape from the day's worst excesses, Riverside Studios celebrates macabre romance with films including Brighton Rock (2pm) and Delicatessen (6pm).
