Classic romances abound on screens big and small this Valentine’s Day weekend. Anyone in the mood for love who’d prefer something a little more contemporary than The Philadelphia Story or Gone With the Wind would do well to start their Friday night at the Egyptian Theatre, where Brokeback Mountain screens at 7:30. Darker and less uplifting than some of your other options, Ang Lee’s adaptation of Annie Proulx’s novella is an affecting love tale made even sadder by the presence of Heath Ledger, whose exceptional performance earned him his first Oscar nomination. (And if you have to see The Philadelphia Story, it’s at the Aero at 7:30.)

Fri., Feb. 13, 7:30-9:45 p.m., 2015
