MYSTERY 80s MOVIE NIGHT
Grab ‘n’ Go Kit
We can’t watch movies together SO we’ve devised something better: a kit with everything you need to have a chill night in! Each Teen Grab ‘n’ Go Kit includes an 80s-themed movie (that you need to return when you’re done) as well as candy & popcorn. Part of the fun is that you won’t know what movie you’ve snagged until you get home. Kick back, relax, & enjoy the flick!  No registration required; first come, first serve. One kit per teen while supplies last. Grades 7-13.
