The third installment to the Marvel superhero series has been out for a few weeks, but many theaters still offer showtimes throughout the day, every day.

A Bad Moms Christmas
Grab your sisters, moms and girlfriends and head to the theater for a laugh. The comedy hit from last year reboots as a Christmas movie, but this time the moms are faced with their own mothers.

Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn reprise their roles, and Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski and Cheryl Hines enter as the grandmothers who rock and roll their way through Christmas. This female-oriented comedy is perfect for a Thanksgiving outing.
