Screenfields lights up with Chinese box office hit ‘If You Are The One’

Manchester’s open-air cinema, Screenfields, in association with Stella Artois, has linked up with the city’s Confucius Institute to screen a free viewing of box office hit ‘If You Are The One’ on Tuesday, July 19th at 7pm.

The Chinese romantic comedy features multi-millionaire inventor, Qin Fen, looking to put an end to life as a bachelor.

He begins online dating, stating ‘if you are the one’, meaning ‘don’t disturb if not sincere.’ He encounters a number of unusual and incompatible women before eventually crossing paths with air stewardess, Liang Xiaoxiao, with whom he strikes up a friendship and eventually falls in love.

Released in 2008, the film became the highest-grossing movie ever released in China, knocking Titanic off the top spot and was hugely popular with Chinese audiences.

Fran Goddard, Head of Communication and Events at Spinningfields said; “We’re really pleased we’ve been able to link up with The Confucius Institute to show ‘If You Are The One’. The Avenue has proved extremely popular with the Chinese community over the last year and it’s great to be able to give something in return. We’ve had a really enthusiastic response to the film being shown and it should be a great night.”
