As the weekend comes closer, my husband, Russ and I enter the conversation dance of “What do you want to do? I don’t know, what do you want to do?” Sound familiar? Russ is a man of routine but I like to shake it up and crave the desire to do something different. So when a friend suggested for us to join a group for a unique night of sharing our favorite movies together, I was intrigued. The night begins before you arrive. You are asked to submit your top ten movies. This exercise took Russ no time at all. For me, I’m not a movie person so recalling movies much less their titles felt like a difficult exercise. But I found a way to remind myself the movies I loved. I looked up my favorite actors and looked at their list of movies and picked my top ten in that manner. I actually had to whittle down my list to 10.
Interestingly enough no one ‘reel-ly’ knew what we were in for before we arrived. Russ and I were simply looking forward to hanging out with friends and sharing our favorite movies. Without telling you exactly how it works here are some outputs of the evening:
- Explore why you love your movies
- Watch your favorite movie clips to see the love of your life in a fresh new way
- Immerse yourself in their creative space where you get quality time to have meaningful conversations
The ending pulls it all together in a powerful way. You’ll be surprised how God shows up in a personal way through your movies! Now depending on where you live here is the good news/bad news. This business is located in Marietta, GA. The website is ReelExperiences.org
