We are all about spicing up life with an out-of-the-box date night adventure. It’s always fun to swim with the manatees, craft your own charcuterie board, or ride an electric bike through a taco tour of the city. While all that is sure to bring tons of fun and excitement to your relationship, you just can’t go wrong with the classics: an intimate picnic in the park, a night at the fair, or, of course, dinner and a movie. That’s why we’re so excited about this upcoming twist on the classic movie date: a six-part Interactive Movie series at Garden Theatre.
Movie-goers will get to dress to the theme of the film, participate in pre-show events like trivia and giveaways, and sing along to select musical films. At just $15 a ticket, these interactive features will serve as a great addition to any Winter Garden date night. Check out the schedule of films below, plus some of the fun interactive events you can participate in!
