Arts and Entertainment

Hulu original movie Palm Springs.

Since movie theaters in Addison haven’t re-opened yet, host a movie night at home this weekend!

6. Get ready to dance, as Work It will have you up on your feet and moving to the music in no time. This Netflix original comedy starring Sabrina Carpenter, Jordan Fisher and Liza Koshy is about a brilliant but clumsy high school senior, who works hard to get into her late father’s alma mater by transforming herself and her friends into dance champions. It’s the feel-good dance movie we’ve been missing in our lives.

7. Drinks, a wedding and a budding romance – what could go wrong? In the Hulu original movie Palm Springs, carefree Nyles (Andy Samberg) and reluctant maid of honor Sarah (Akiva Schaffer) seem friendly when they first meet at a wedding. However, things start to get weird fast when they realize they are unable to escape the wedding venue or each other as the day repeats itself over and over again.
