Are you a fan of Ghost and looking for somewhere to go on Valentine’s Day? Well, now could be your lucky chance.

In an unusual move, Cineworld is offering loved-up couples the chance to recreate the iconic pottery scene from Ghost at cinemas in London, Glasgow and York this Valentine’s Day.

Customers who book to see the 1990 blockbuster at a VIP screening this February 14 will be able to channel their inner Patrick Swayze or Demi Moore by taking a couples’ pottery class prior before watching the film.

The film is celebrating its 30th anniversary since cinematic release, but now fans of the hit movie will get to pretend to be in it… though we’re not sure this will take the awkwardness out of a first date on Valentine’s Day!

Those who book to see the film can opt to have a pottery class – soundtracked to The Righteous Brothers’ 'Unchained Melody', just like the film – in the exclusive VIP lounge before sitting down to a romantic sit-down meal.

Cineworld said: “The pottery experience is perfect for both couples or pairs of friends,” – we’ll let you be the judge of that!

The renowned pottery scene in the film sees a shirtless Swayze sat behind Moore as she carefully sculpts the wet clay. He reaches out and ruins her vase, so they begin a new one together, his hands interlaced with hers, before abandoning the wheel in favour of a loving embrace.

How much will it set you back? The cost is between £32-35.
