There’s nothing like kicking back at the movie theater during a cold January day – especially if that day happens to be National Screenwriters’ Day on January 5, when we celebrate the millions of screenwriters that keep us entertained with their amazing films.
This National Screenwriters’ Day, head to these theaters near your RESA apartment and escape into another world and another story for two hours. We know your RESA couch is comfy, but a true movie theater experience will be worth the short drive!
