Movies to Hit Theaters and DVD this Month

A couple of cinema tickets in front of scattered popcorn.

Now that it’s December, we thought it would be a good idea to share a few of the exciting movies that will not only be hitting the big screen this month but will also be released on DVD. Invite a friend from our Truman Park apartment community to spend a few hours at a local theater in Largo, MD. Or, if you’d prefer, stay in and watch one of these newly released DVDs. It’s up to you!
