Whether the classics are your style or you’d rather trek to the theater to watch the newest releases, watching a movie is a great way to spend quality time with your loved ones while welcoming in the New Year in New York.
If you’re getting together with the girls, pop open a bottle of wine and bring out the ice cream to watch “Bridget Jone’s Diary”.

Laugh and cry along with Bridget as she writes about her ridiculous family, friends, and love life.
A great way to greet 2010 is to watch a movie with the kids.

In this movie, Charlie Brown struggles to finish his book report over the holidays while distractions such as a New Year party get in his way.

Follow Holden and Swanson’s journey through love, heartbreak, and murder while enjoying this New Year’s Eve classic.
