Everybody loves watching movies. But do you know what’s even better than that? Watching with family or close friends at home! Nothing beats a movie night while you stay comfy in your own house, and the experience is tailor-made for everyone. Today, we’ll give you tips how to make a movie night super awesome.
Pick a Theme
If you plan on throwing a movie night with friends, plan a theme. Don’t just go around, saying, “I’m hosting movie night at my house, do you want to come?” Instead, be more specific like, “Tonight is about ‘Star Wars,’ we’re going to have a ball! Costumes or fancy dress are optional but encouraged!” That makes movie night more interesting.
Innovate the Menu
Thinking of just serving the usual popcorn during movie night? That’s so dated and bland. You might want to look into going in synch with the movie you’re going to watch. Viewing “Huntsman: Winter’s War?” Maybe ice cream would work? Think somewhere along those lines.
Create Comfy Seating
You’re going to be watching films for over two to three hours, so you have to make sure everyone’s comfortable. Chairs are a thing of the past; you might want to consider bean bags or a comfy lounge with a pouffe instead. That makes everyone comfier while being laid back as you watch as many films as you like.
Play Some Games
We’re not talking about games that could distract you from the movie. Instead, it should be games that actually make you even more focused on it. For example, if you’re all of drinking age, you could set a rule where everyone chugs one drink when a character says a specific word, or does a gesture that you’re watching out for. That adds up to the experience. You could also have a trivia game in between movies, to test everybody’s knowledge.
Let Your Guests Vote
While you’re hosting the movie night, it may be difficult for you to decide what’s best for everyone. You can ask your guests to suggest a film they like. Ultimately, it will be your decision, but at least this gives you an idea of the genre your audience likes.
Print Movie Tickets
What screams “movie night” better than movie tickets? It creates an atmosphere that an event is coming, and it serves as an invitation for your guests. It also serves as a token of a wonderful memory you will be making!
Be Creative with the Location
You don’t have to watch a movie in the living room all the time. How about moving the venue to the back yard or a shed or garage if you’re watching a horror film? You can decorate the area with cobwebs, scythes, and other cool stuff that depicts the theme!
Do Away with Phones
You don’t have to be strict about implementing this, but have an agreement with everyone that phones should be off-limits during the film. This way, everyone is concentrated on the film and the experience.
And these are some of the tips to make a movie night super awesome! Are there any other ideas you have in mind?
