Movie nights can be a great way for family and friends alike to come together and enjoy a good film in great company. While it can be as simple as popping in a movie last minute, some prefer to carefully plan out every detail of their movie night to ensure its success. If you’d like to give hosting movie night a try, here are some things you may want to consider before your guests arrive:
- The movie – Before you pick the movie you’ll be showing during movie night, take your audience into consideration. A movie you might watch will friends will likely be different than one you’d watch with young family members. It may even be a good idea to present options and let your guests vote to ensure that you’re watching something that everyone is interested in.
- Snacks – Many people consider popcorn a movie night staple, but other finger foods can make great snacks as well. Also, consider supplying beverages that come in a capped bottle to reduce the chance of any spillage.
- A theme – Themes can help make events like movie night even more fun. Pick out some decorations or encourage guests to wear pajamas to make movie night unforgettable.
- The room – Pillows and blankets are great for adding a homey touch – especially if there aren’t enough seats for anyone and your guests opt to stretch out on the floor.
While you’re busy enjoying movie night with your loved ones, be sure to be courteous to your neighbors by staying mindful of your noise level – both from the TV and any after-movie discussion – to keep movie night an enjoyable experience for everyone.
