2020 Motion Picture Slate: Mark your calendars for movies to see in 2020 from studios such as Disney, Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, Paramount and more! - SahmReviews.com

We are quickly approaching that time of year here in the Midwest. November typically starts out halfway decent, but most of that time is spent getting ready for winter. Cleaning up the yard, winterizing the vehicles and rearranging closets. As the weather gets more wintery, we’re less likely to venture out because it gets too cold to enjoy yard games and activities, turn sidewalk chalk into paint or host an outdoor video game tournament. Thankfully, there are movies. Oh, how we enjoy going to the movies.

Our list of movies this month isn’t very long so if you need to supplement this list, some of the October movie releases will likely still be in theaters. As mentioned previously, we’ve added a link to easily purchase tickets. Please note that we may receive a small commission should you opt to do that. If it doesn’t get cold in your area, I’m happy to help you find another excuse to go see the movies!
