Y2K and beyond! The 2000s, known as the aughts, were full of life, miniskirts, and MySpace. But also, some really amazing movies. In the 2000s, we had scary and we had funny, but we also had the new Star Wars trilogy, the Pirates of The Caribbean, and The Lord of the Rings. Need I mention Harry Potter being brought to the big screen? We went to the movies a lot in the 2000s as Netflix wasn't big yet and we couldn't easily download movies from the internet (legally, of course). So we jumped in the convertible or minivan and headed to the theater to check out the newest hits. Hopefully, you remember the names of these movies. You don't need to know actors, character names, locations, or random trivia. Just the names. Sounds simple enough, but you may find that it's harder than it sounds. We've done 90s, so let's do a quick warm-up exercise. Was it 20 Things I Hate About You, 15 Things I Hate About You, or 10 Things I Hate About You? If you guessed then, then you're right. Once more before we begin. Is it The Large Lebowski, The Big Lebowski, or the Small Lebowski? You're on your own with that one. So, why not skip forward a few years and try your hand at 2000s movies instead. I hope you're ready! Here you must fill in the blank and guess which word completes these 2000s movie titles.

It’s called Centralia, Pennsylvania. Once upon a time, the town was a booming mining town of over a 3000 people. But by 2015, that number had reached five. Why? Well, in 1962, a coal mine fire was set that never stopped burning. By 2002, despite the few people still living there, the postal code was discontinued, and the whole town was set to eminent domain.
But before that, some spooky stuff went on. Alexander Rae, the town's founder, was murdered in his buggy by members of the Molly Maguires in 1868. Ten years later, three men were hanged for his murder. But for ten years, they roamed the area, tormenting the residents, and murdering more.
The reason for all of this is often thought to be due to a curse that Father Daniel Ignatius McDermott, the first Roman Catholic priest to call Centralia home, cast on the land after a run in with the Molly Maguires. He said that one day the St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Church would be the only structure remaining in Centralia. Believe it or not, over the next few decades, houses began to crumble, and fires were set. But none like the 1963 mining fire that caused hundreds to relocate due to the toxic chemicals rising in the area.
Today, people refuse to go near the ghost town that has such a dark past; they can feel the horrors of the criminal activity and disasters that went on there so long ago.
