1. Autumn in New York

Think of a cheesy New York City love story, but with lots of gorgeouus fall foliage backdropping every single scene.

A theatrical classic that is a must-see if you’re not necessarily in the mood to dress up to see the actual musical. Lucky for us who love to stay home, there’s a wonderful movie version available, so you’re all set! Matilda is a bight girl who, to their parents dismay, loves to read and learn. Tired of her “shenanigans”, her parents send her to school to deal with an evil Miss Trunchbull, but Matilda is not about to sit quietly and accept her authoritarian abuse.
