In the 21st Century, we are fortunate to be able to sit in our living rooms and watch our choice of movies whenever we wish. We can even pause them for snack breaks. But there is something special about sitting in a darkened movie theater, that big screen, surround sound, the smell of popcorn, and even watching the previews of upcoming movies. It’s an experience rather than just a movie. It’s Date Night, Girls’ Night, a Night Out without the kids! It is an enjoyable way to spend an evening.
