Looking for a great way to relax, have some fun and socialise that wont cost a fortune? How about holding a Movie Night? Roll out the red carpet and get ready to have some fun. Invite your family and friends over, pick some movies, and don't forget the snacks.
Choosing a Movie. Everyone likes something different when it comes to movies so consider this when you are choosing the movies. You can rent the DVD's, borrow from someone you know or maybe use ones you already own. Perhaps get each person to suggest or bring a movie along.
Plan a Theme
Having a theme can be as simple as watching movies that all star a particular actor or have the same director. Try movies in a series or trilogy. Maybe choose movies in the same genre like cult classics, horror, comedy or romance. Musicals can be fun, classic old black and white movies or how about 80's movies. The choice is endless.
Snacks Make sure you have plenty of snacks and soft drinks and water available. A movie isn't a movie without popcorn so why not pop your own. How about some fun sized chocolate bars or bowls of sweets such as M&M's or Maltesers? Of course you can't forget the ice cream and potato chips, or you could grab a few pizzas. It's your choice.
Make sure you have plenty of comfortable seating available, If you don't have enough chairs, use cushions or bean bags, or borrow some chairs, maybe ask the guests to bring seats with them.
Movie nights are very popular and relatively cheap. It could become a regular thing and the options are limitless. Use your imagination; it might be a girls night in or a sleep over party. Whatever you choose, get ready to have loads of fun.
