    Date Night

    One of the things I look forward to the most is "Date Night" with my husband.  We started doing this about two years into our marriage.  It was our way of getting out and just focusing on us as a couple. We usually go out for a nice dinner and then a movie...

    Oz The Great And Powerful...

    The Wizard of Oz made it's theatrical debut in 1939, a good 47 years before I was born. Still, it became one of my favorite movies to watch with my family when I was a child. I have seen it multiple times and will watch it again with my own children. I know exactly where to...

    The Movie Experience

    A crowded theater and lots of popcorn, soda, & candy is what makes the movie -literally. It's fun to watch everyone slip in and find a seat. Some have to scoot through to the inner isles but either way the seats are full. At some point there is always those that decide to stock...

    My Safe Haven

    Going to the movies got to be one of my favourite things to do! I love the smell of popcorn and the delicious sight of colourful candy (they are screaming my name..nomnomnom). The movie theatre itself is like a safe haven to me. Comfortable, red seats and dim lights, people...

    I Miss The Hollywood Bar And Filmworks In Indianapolis

    I used to go to the movies a lot with friends but now that I don't have many anymore, I don't do the movies too much at the theater but I would like to go again.  Plus the movies and the food is too high but I fall into the trap of smelling the popcorn and I have to have it...

    I Love The Movie Theatre.

    I love going to the movie theatre. It's great. I usually don't even bother going with anyone else. I'll just go by myself. If somebody asks me to go with them, then I will. But if I'm making the plans then it'll just be me, myself and I. It's not that I don't enjoy going with my...

    My dad and I always go to the movies.

    It's our favorite past time! We go to any movie we want to see and at home we have a giant flat screen 3D tv with 400 blu ray films and 100 3D films! We watch movies all time and my dad is obsessed with quality. In fact if there is a 3D movie coming out, he won't let me watch 2D...

    Movie Night

    Going to the movies was something I did a lot of as a kid. My mom dropped my friends and I off at the moves as young teensagers. Many dates were spent at the movies as an older teen. Going to the movies is a lot of fun, but, the movie has to be one I really want to see before...

    Getting Away To A New World

    new adventures, exciting places, future, past, imagination. Visiting a new world, to witness other lives but be apart of it in stealth.ย Like a fly on the wall or to be invisible. Sometimes we want a safe temporary exit out of our own little world and experience new. This is what...

    Theaters Are Great

    Nothing else really compares to going to the movies. Even if it's a crappy theater. There's just something intimate about going with other people who want to be there and enjoy a particular experience. I think it's magical.
