    Love It

    I love going to movie theatres. Going to the movies is one of the only public things I can do without panic attacks, or at least without major ones. I usually go to the first showing and the theatre I go to usually has very few people there at that hour. Oftentimes, I am the only...

    I just saw The Other Woman at the theaters

    today. It helped me realized you just need at least one good friend. I've always known but today I felt it. I have my cousin bailey who reminded me of the trio of friends. It was the funniest movie in a while.

    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...

    One Of My Favorite Things To Do.

    Going to the movies is one of my favorite things to do.  It doesn't even matter which movie I'm seeing.  My favorite is going by myself and finding the theater empty except for me.  I bring my own snacks in my purse.  Sometimes, I will drive to the city...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
