MOM'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK | Hollywood Blvd. Cinema In Woodridge

by Kristen Kucharski


I think I speak for all ages when I say that it is always more fun to be surrounded by your family and friends than to be in a roomful of strangers that might be kicking your seat, talking to much during the movie, running up and down the aisles, chewing their popcorn too loudly, or spoiling the movie ending.

Let’s face it – we like to be with “our people” and have grown to fully appreciate them more than ever during the last nine months of living through a pandemic.

As we learn to live in our new environment, I am grateful for the businesses that are adapting to provide clean, safe, and private spaces for families and friends to enjoy entertainment while maintaining a prudent social bubble.

Appreciating a Bears game on the big screen, reminiscing treasured family home videos, binge watching a favorite Netflix series, or taking advantage of a seeing a new release film can all be done in the privacy of your very own cinema, with your very own crew.

Take pleasure in knowing you can spread out in a huge theater while appreciating your favorite drinks and select menu items with your social bubble besties.

Have you ever watched a Hallmark movie and the gentleman rents out the entire theater as a surprise date for just him and his special someone? This is your chance to recreate moments you thought were only made for movies, but now you can make them your reality!

I have created many unique memories that I never dreamed possible during this pandemic by thinking outside the box, so the Box Theater private venue option is no different!

Like Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Life is what you make of it. Always has been. Always will be”.
