Begin by stuffing yourself with the Inwood Theatre's deliciously above-average popcorn and making your date pay. You should then veg out on a LoveSac in the downstairs theater and get really pissed off at the people making out between texts across the aisle. Show off your film nerd prowess by owning at pre-movie trivia and then brag about it for the rest of the night. Finally, (depending on which way the cookie crumbles) envy or lust after Brad Pitt, who plays the rookie sidekick to Morgan Freeman's veteran cop in David Fincher's Seven, a merciless story about a sadistic killer who justifies his crimes by basing them on the seven deadly sins. That should cover all the bases at the midnight screenings this Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane. Call 214-764-9106 or visit landmarktheatres.com.
