First Movie: Penelope!

Hey, everyone! Welcome to this new YA Cinema thing!

Our first event will be this Friday, August 13th at 9PM EST. I know we should probably watch something scary, it being Friday the 13th and all, but we've decided the only way to kick off YA Cinema is with Penelope.

Also, I am a wuss when it comes to scary movies.

To participate is simple:

1. Get a copy of the movie.

2. Prepare any treats you would like to have. (I'm so going Reese's Dark and pretzels.)

3. Start playing it at 9PM EST.

4. Join in the comments/ridiculousness on Twitter at #YACinema.

It's like a giant online slumber party thing! Can't go wrong with that, can you? You don't even have to go out and buy cuter jammies.

We will probably have votes for subsequent movies and times (I know 9PM EST could be a little early for our Pacific Coasters, so know that times will vary). I can't wait to see how this works out.

Stay tuned!


  1. Sounds awesome! Too bad I already have plans... But I'll definitely be in on future movie nights! :)

  2. Yay! Penelope is the perfect movie to start with. Plus, I have been wanting to watch it again real bad lately, so this gives me the perfect excuse!

    And, it is a perfect time because now I can enjoy Penelope, but still have enough time to make my husband watch whatever cheesy horror movie I pick out for Friday the 13th.

  3. Love this movie! I don't have work so I should be around to do it.

  4. I love Penelope!! I wish I could do this with you, but we already have plans for tomorrow night. But now I really need to get this movie and watch it soon...

  5. Enthusiasm is well stocked here. 6pm is perfect this time around because I won't fall asleep watching it (love the PST conversion).

  6. I love this idea and I love Penelope. Probably won't watch tonight as under an avalanche of things to do, but think the whole thing is awesome.
