Movie Lounge – April 14, 2017

Movie Lounge – April 14, 2017

Movie Lounge is a feature at Law And Order Party where we list ten movies screening this week that we might not have actually seen but which we’re presenting as a ranked list, anyway, based on how much they might be worth checking out. Two notes this week: the Rustic Drive-In officially opens for the season on Friday, April 14th, so you’ll see that popping up in the listings again. Also there’s a ton of movie stuff going on this week, but if short films are your thing scroll down to the bottom for two events happening next Thursday (April 20).
