LEWES, Del. -- The sub-zero weather that brought ice and snow this week forced a number of people to stay home but the freezing temperatures Friday night weren't any excuse to keep some at home any longer.
The Movies at Midway theater in Lewes hosted a large crowd from teens to adults waiting in 7-degree weather to buy tickets to see popular newly-released movies.
"We're going to see the movie Fifty Shades of Grey," said Katelyn McNanus who was waiting outside the theater for the movie to start with her mother.
The risque book-turned-movie still dominating the box office since its release Feb. 13 is attracting a large audience at Midway.
Despite some harsh reviews of the movie so far, those who've read the book expect the flick to live up to its reputation.
"I thought about seeing," said Stefan Miller of Millsboro. "But a lot of people have been saying it wasn't like the book."
For others out and about on a chilly Friday night, a little dinner was all they really needed to help cure their bout of cabin fever.
"Go home, probably watch TV for a while," said Walter Wilson who was just coming out of a pizzeria when WBOC met up with him and his wife.
"I got my grandson tomorrow, so I'm partying tonight," Wilson said,
It's just a few ways people are capping off a freezing work week to start warming up for the weekend ahead.
But with the chance of snow meteorologists are expecting for Delmarva this weekend, along with the ice that's still blanketing much of the ground, the State Highway Administration wants remind the public to drive carefully.
