dan and i don’t go to the theater frequently. we both believe that only certain films need to be experienced on the big screen: superhero flicks or anything in the transformers series, for example. and yet, there’s almost nothing more quintessentially “summer” to me as a late night trip to the movies. bring a hoodie, because the air conditioning is bound to be cranked up, but when you exit into the cicada-filled, still air, you’ll be glad you have a t-shirt on underneath. below are just a few movies that scream “SUMMER” to me, either because we saw them during such a trip to the theater or maybe cuddled up on the couch with all the windows open and a fan blowing on us.
4. wet hot american summer
5. jaws (especially around the fourth of july!) **will this classic be replaced by the new cult classic, “sharknado?!?” just kidding.
6. batman (the dark knight is my fave)
7. now and then
8. stand by me
