Gold House and CAPE’s #OneOpen Initiative Kicks Off with ‘Eternals’

True story. When I was growing up there was nothing else I loved more than going to the movies. Anytime my mom or dad would take me to the theater, it was like Christmas. I sat through the Home Alone‘s, the Mrs. Doubtfire‘s, the Disney movies, etc. My time with them, and the big screen, was what ultimately drove the passion I have for this industry. Movies have and always will mean the world to me. And that’s why I’ve made it my goal to do whatever I can to make even the smallest impact on this industry I care about so much.

Okay, ordinarily we don’t use this site to plug car partnerships. If this was a regular thing, I’d be driving around in my sleek new all-wheel drive Lexus with self-parking features, and anti-collision sensors, and my bags of money in it’s incredibly spacious trunk with enough cargo space for you and the whole family (I’ll cash my check for this later). But since this one is quite funny, and since we simply can’t wait for Eternals to come out, we just had to share this!
