Contributor Corner | Night at the Movies!

1

Our whole team is gearing up for Arizona Mom’s Night Out with Raising Arizona Kids magazine on January 26 at UltraStar / UltraLuxe Scottsdale. We can’t wait to see the feature film, Carnageafter a glass of wine and some girl time, of course. 🙂

In the spirit of a night at the movies, we asked a few of our contributors about their favorite flicks, their kids’ favorites, and their go-to movie snacks. Here’s what they said…

Beth

What is your favorite movie? Clueless

What is your kids’ favorite movie? Baylor is big into Shirley Temple right now – it takes us a week to get through one movie, but they are so fun!

What is your go-to movie concession stand snack/treat? Red Vines!

Steph

What is your favorite movie? Probably not your typical mommy/chick flick but certainly a favorite in this home : The Jason Bourne Series (The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum)

What is your kids’ favorite movie? At this point Nora has a 20-minute attention span so movies are out.  BUT she does like Toy Story characters 🙂

What is your go-to movie concession stand snack/treat? Dr. Pepper. 🙂

Sarah

What is your favorite movie? A Few Good Men

What is your kids’ favorite movie? “Movie” has a broad interpretation in our house, because they’re not ready for most full-length kids’ films. Usually movie night consists of a few TiVo’d episodes of Curious George

What is your go-to movie concession stand snack/treat? Plain M&Ms

Angela

What is your favorite movie? This is tough! I don’t really watch movies more than once, so I don’t know if I have a favorite. But I like all sorts of genres; comedy, romantic, suspense, drama etc.

What is your kids’ favorite movie? Any and all princess/fairy/girly movies.

What is your go-to movie concession stand snack/treat? I love chocolate so if I were to get candy at the movies it would be Whoppers or M&Ms

Joy

What is your favorite movie? Pride and Prejudice (the one with Keira Knightly)

What is your kids’ favorite movie? The Incredibles, Tangled – Pixar is a big deal in our house

What is your go-to movie concession stand snack/treat? Sour patch kids

Tracy

What is your favorite movie? I could watch “The American President” and “A League of their Own” over and over again.

What is your kids’ favorite movie? My boys’ current favorites are “Cars 1” or “Rio”

What is your go-to movie concession stand snack/treat? Peanut M&Ms or Twizzlers

Cate

What is your favorite movie? Joe vs. the Volcano

What is your kids’ favorite movie? Tale of Desperaux

What is your go-to movie concession stand snack/treat? Milk Duds

Kirsten

What is your favorite movie? My favorite movie (though technically a miniseries) is “Band Of Brothers”…if you’re gonna be strict on the term movie, then probably a tie between “Waiting for Guffman” and “Casablanca”

What is your kids’ favorite movie? My son’s favorite movie is Lion King…this week…next week…who knows?

What is your go-to movie concession stand snack/treat? Seriously? Popcorn, with weird fake butter and salt, obviously!

What about you? What are your – and your kids’ – favorite flicks and snacks?
