my weekly escape

Movie therapy is a phrase I came up with when I first started a few years ago with a goal to see one movie in theaters each week, by myself. I also called it #52in52, and I did it! My inspiration was my dad, who reserved his Friday mornings for the new releases on the big screen and would text me from the theater with his thoughts on the film, and share the new trailers he saw for what was coming soon. I’m happy to get back at it, for me, for him.

Making this once a week isolation trip has become my sort of “me time,” that ensures I’m taking time out to do something for myself. I do cheat every once in awhile and bring someone along for the fun.
