  • Begin your date in an enchanting vintage cinema theatre. Experience the charm of an old black and white film that brings back the lost magic of the yesteryears. The theatre’s classic ambiance adds to the overall experience.
  • After the movie, head to a cosy cafe nearby. Settle down in a cosy corner and spend some quality time together. You can discuss the movie, share your thoughts, and indulge in deep conversations over cups of coffee or cocoa.
  • To add a dash of romance, you can share a slice of decadent chocolate cake or any dessert that both of you prefer.

Preparation steps:

  • Research on old film screenings happening near your vicinity. Vintage movie theaters often have unique programs, so ensure to buy the tickets in advance.
  • Make reservations at a nice, cosy coffee shop near the movie theatre. Some of them might also serve special menus or desserts if informed earlier.
  • Get dressed casually but comfortably. You'll be seating for a few hours for the movie, then moving to a relaxed setting in the coffee shop.

Some tips:

  • Make sure to arrive at the theatre a little earlier to avoid any hustle. Old movie theaters have their own unique charm, so take some time to appreciate the architecture and history of the place.
  • At the cafe, order a dessert to share which adds the perfect end note to your movie. Share your thoughts on the movie or discuss about your likes and dislikes which helps to know each other better.
  • Since the weather in Saint Petersburg can be unpredictable in September, don’t forget to bring an umbrella. This could avoid ruining your date due to unexpected rain.
