Sure, it’s that time
of year to kick off football season, but it’s also time to gear up for the
release of some of fall’s hottest movies to hit the big screen.
And the place to kick
off the fall flicks is at The Market Common’s Grand 14 Movie Theatre, featuring
14 screens and stadium seating within a state-of-the-art experience of digital

to take in the release of one (or more) of these movies this fall:
