Fall Movie Night Lineup

In response to the shuttering of our local movie theater, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and inspired by my brother and his girlfriend’s at home movie and themed dinner dates, I created a summer movie plan for my family. If you missed it, you can find it here.


These weekly movie nights have become a mainstay — we all look forward to them! I wanted to keep the rhythm and momentum going, so I’ve put together our fall lineup. I hope you enjoy it too!

*I have not seen all these movies, so you'll have to check your favorite movie review site to see if they’re appropriate and a good fit for you and yours. The movie pictures below are linked to their descriptions/reviews.
