It's so hard to plan fun events during COVID. My husband's birthday is coming up and I've been having a heck of a time trying to figure out what to do. So, I've been sifting through the internet for ideas to make his birthday unique.

I stumbled upon a really awesome idea. Now through the end of January Marcus Parkwood Cinema in Waite Park is renting out their auditoriums spaces for a pretty great deal. Neat, huh? So, if you're worried about COVID, you can rest assured that this theater will be all yours.

You can book a group of up to 20 people per theater reservation. I wish I would have known this over the holidays. Think about how fun a Christmas movie marathon would have been on the big screen with a whole theater all to yourself?!

It only costs $99. If you've got a group of 20 people, that's roughly $5 per person. Plus, you can opt in for full-service and never have to leave your COVID friendly space to grab snacks.

You'll also have access to Marcus Theater's movie catalog. So, you can choose from any of the movies they have available. If you'd like to bring your own movie, you'll need to pay an extra fee and wait while the theater obtains the rights to show it on the big screen.

Unfortunately, it's a little too late for my planning purposes. But, this is an idea that I'm putting in my back pocket for later, because it's awesome.
