LIMA — The ever-long battle between going out or staying in. With the help of a stay-at-home order, you can now do both by experiencing dinner and a movie from the comfort of your home.

With so many local restaurants turning to carryout or delivery, now is the perfect time to order your favorite entre from places like The Met or Casa Lu Al, change into your pajamas and throw on a movie.

Not sure what to watch? If you’re tired of turning on the same movie or doing the endless search through Netflix, we’ve gathered lists of the top movies in several genres — including if you want to go down a complete pandemic rabbit hole.
