If smitten couples and elaborate bouquets make you want to hurl, we suggest hightailing it to experimental movie house Anthology Film Archives for a double feature of emphatically antilove fare. First up is 1972 flick We Won’t Grow Old Together (6:45pm; $10), a caustic examination of a couple who can neither stay together nor call it quits (spoiler alert: as the movie’s title suggests, the toxic relationship ultimately dissolves). After enduring their countless breakup attempts, dive into the scathingly hilarious 1981 film Modern Romance (9:15pm; $10), where the main character manages to dump his girlfriend—but then regrets it for the rest of the movie.
