So you might not be aware, but not too long ago, Mead added a new thing to our collection: what we call a Movie Geek Box! What is that, you ask? Well, it’s a movie, of course – and then it’s additional related stuff to go along with it, like related movies, the soundtrack, a board game based on the movie, the book the movie is based on… let me give you just a few examples!
I should also add – in addition to looking in the catalog (you can search for “Movie Geek Box” and they should come up), their current location is on the first floor of the library next to the DVDs.
The Princess Bride Geek Box
The Princess Bride is a classic (I’ve had a friend call it the ultimate date movie, give that a shot!), but with this you could throw a whole Princess Bride party! In addition to the movie itself, you also get the soundtrack, a party game called The Princess Bride: Prepare To Die!, the original book by S. Morgenstern, a cookbook called The Princess Dessert Book, and a behind-the-scenes book titled As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of The Princess Bride.
Alien Geek Box
I don’t think I can recommend this one for date night (but… you do you…), but we also have this complete set of movies in one box: Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, Prometheus, and Alien Covenant. In addition, this box comes with the party/co-op survival game Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps as well as the books Alien: The Archive: The Ultimate Guide to the Classic Movies and Alien: Out of the Shadows and a documentary titled Memory: The Origins of Alien.
Dance Party Geek Box
This one’s a little broader because it’s not based on a single movie or series. This one contains the movies Footloose (1984) and Footloose (2011), Saturday Night Fever, Dirty Dancing, and Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. It also has the Funko Footloose Party Game, the soundtracks to Saturday Night Fever and Footloose, the music CD The Best of Donna Summer and the DVD Club Line Dancing.
