Enjoy a Movie Marathon
One of your girlfriends wants to see this movie. You want to see that movie. Another one had her heart set on seeing that one movie that’s been out forever. You don’t have to decide on just one, you can go see them all – together. Make a day of it and create your own triple-header. It’s guaranteed to be back-to-back fun. Just go easy on the popcorn.
