When was the last time you had hot buttery popcorn?

When was the last time you had a cold soda?

When was the last time you sat back and enjoyed a movie at the movie theater?

For most it’s been a LONG time. For my friends who moved to California last year from Boston around this time it has been a VERY long time. In fact, so long that when they were packing last year and found they had 2 coupons for a theater that they didn’t believe would be on the west coast they gave them to me.

Now if you know me you know I am really bad at spending gift cards. I probably have 10+ cards in my purse at any given time (most from stores I frequent often but forget to use). But I accepted these coupons for a free movie and added them to my collection.

Surprisingly though last week when my parents and I decided to go to the movie theater I did remember. They dug through my purse and found them tucked between Marshalls and Target gift cards. There was no expiration date or bar code to scan on them but why not give it a try?! And to all our surprise the coupons actually still worked (with a little help from a manger because the high schooler didn’t know how to add a coupon with no bar code).

We were 3 of 9 in the whole, spacious auditorium. So we sat back with our masks and enjoyed! I highly recommend it… not matter what movie you choose.

  1. The beginning had me thinking it would be poem like — but those questions just pulled me in to a story of two movie vouchers and a group of three who got to enjoy a movie IN a movie theater together! Love the glimpses into your relationship or lack there of with gift cards.
