Cox’s Valentine’s Day movie collection makes at-home date night stress-free

With Valentine’s Day approaching, many people are already planning a fun, stress-free date night at home this year, and movies have a magical way of bringing us closer.

Whether you’re married, single, or in a relationship, Cox Contour’s Valentine’s Day Movie Collection has something for everyone to help them celebrate love – from classic romance and gal pal categories to rom-coms and Black Love (in honor of February’s Black History Month).

Just say “Valentine’s Day” into your Contour voice remote control or go to the On Demand library to see all the date-night choices available at your fingertips with your Contour service.

Cox Contour’s Valentine’s Day Movie Collection categories (available through Feb. 19) include:

Classic Romance – Light some candles and grab a cozy blanket as you settle down to a classic from the golden age of Hollywood (think “Casablanca,” “Roman Holiday” and  “From Here to Eternity”),  a modern-day favorite like “Titanic” or 1980s hits like “Sixteen Candles,” “Dirty Dancing” and “Say Anything.”

Galentine’s Goodies – Zoom with galfriends while enjoying a glass of wine and some laughs before everyone selects a movie to watch then discuss virtually afterwards. Enjoy “Clueless” or “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” or make it a Sarah Jessica Parker double feature with “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and “Sex and the City: The Movie.”

Love Seriously –

Don’t forget to grab some tissue before watching movies like “A Walk to Remember,” “Ghost” and “The English Patient.”

Love Laughs –

You might want to hold on to that tissue as you laugh so hard you’ll cry with the Marilyn Monroe classic “Some Like It Hot,” which was filmed at San Diego’s very own Hotel del Coronado, or Eddie Murphy in “Coming to America.”

Love is Love – 

Make your favorite drink, grab your Valentine’s chocolates and watch a movie that celebrates love, whether it’s the award-winning “Brokeback Mountain,” a love story between two cowboys, or “Lady Bird,” which focuses on a complicated mother-daughter relationship.

Black Love –

February is Black History Month so celebrate diversity with popular movies such as “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” and “The Bodyguard” and “Love Jones” or the Halle Berry/Eddie Murphy romantic comedy “Boomerang.”

Nancy & Nora –

This category features movies written, directed or produced by filmmakers Nancy Meyers and Nora Ephron who are responsible for some of the most beloved romantic movies. Check out Ephron classics like “Sleepless in Seattle,” “When Harry Met Sally” and “You’ve Got Mail” or Meyers films like “Father of the Bride,” “The Parent Trap” and “It’s Complicated.”

Bloody Valentine –

You may not want to dim the lights when watching “Carrie” or “House at the End of the Street.” Or maybe a scary movie on Valentine’s Day will bring you closer – literally.

With so many choices through Cox Contour to watch a movie on demand or stream via Cox high speed internet and your Contour apps, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to stay in and enjoy a good movie – whether you’re pampering yourself or watching with a loved one. For more information, visit
