A proposal of (true) romance

20th Nov 2013

Love was again in the air this November at The Electric Cinema, as our upstairs screen was hired out on Monday 11th November by a nervous boyfriend looking to pop the question to his long-term partner.

An elaborate scheme was set up by 33 year old Dean Harris, including printing out a fake poster for a screening of True Romance, the couple's favourite film. Walking past the cinema, Dean convinced his partner Helen Wesson to go in for the screening, only to find that it wasn't the Tarantino cult favourite, but rather a short black and white film he'd made.

The video ended with a silent movie placard saying 'I have a question...', which is when Dean got down on one knee and asked Helen to marry him. The answer was a resounding yes, and if you fancy taking a look at the film, you can click here and watch it on YouTube.
