There’s still nothing like going out to the movies
In the age of streaming, which is now, many say the end of cinema and movies is near. And while it depends on who you’re talking to, we beg to differ. Nothing beats the experience of watching in the theater with complete strangers or your S.O., or the smell of freshly popped (not microwaveable) popcorn or cheesey, beefy nachos. Streaming is convenient, but it’s still kind of nice to go on movie dates with family, friends or that special guy or gal. So, here’s a short list of movies you may want to see outside the comfort of your own home.
