Spend Memorial Day at the Movies

at 6:00 pm | By

Memorial Day is all about kicking off the summer season outdoors — with hours of day drinking, backyard barbeques and tanning.

But we’re here to say, shun the sun this year. Especially since the weather doesn’t look like its cooperating, take this holiday to enjoy the great indoors instead. And what better to do that than in a dark theater? That means, to the movies you go!

Here’s a few films you should check out at your local cinema:

Buckle up for Fast & Furious 6: The sixth installment to the illustrious high-octane franchise puts the pedal to the metal once more, with faster cars, fiercer girl-fights, and the most formidable villain the crew has ever faced. Plus, there’s a tank. Need we say more?w

Marvel at Iron Man 3: Kick the summer off right with a dose of superhero. Robert Downey Jr. returns to his computer-generated Iron Man suit as he hunts down the enemy responsible for destroying his personal world. From the tongue-in-cheek humor to the clever plots twists, it’s sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Get jazzy with The Great Gatsby:Leonardo DiCaprio is breathing new life into one of American literature’s most iconic figures — with rave-reviewed supporting performances from Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher. And from the magnificent mansions, to the swanky soirées, to the flamboyant fashions, to the bottomless booze, it’s a party from start to finish. So fill your flask, grab a front-row seat, and get in the Gatsby groove.

Beam up with Star Trek Into Darkness: The U.S.S. Enterprise is voyaging toward that final frontier for another mission — to take down a Star Fleet agent who has gone rogue. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) reach new bromance heights, villain John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) chills your bones and Alice Eve is in her underwear. #winning.

Reminisce with The Hangover 3: Shed a tear, for this is the curtain call for the so-called Wolfpack trilogy. Though critics have panned part three of the beloved, booze-addled franchise, fans seem simply happy to get the trouble-rousing gang back together for one last riotous romp, as Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Allen (Zach Galifianakis) chase down Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong). But come credits, it’s “so long, gay boys” — forever.
