New movies are on pause right now. But, movie night can still be a go. What better way to spend quality family time than cozying up and sharing movies on the big screen? With theaters closed, it’s up to you to make watching a blockbuster a big deal. If comfy with a side of concessions is your theme, then we’ve got the ticket to everything you need. So, whether you’re watching a recently released movie or one of these classics, get ready to be entertained.
What’s the setting for your movie night? Dedicated movie room? Playroom or den converted to the movie-watching area? Or, maybe you’d like a movie under the stars? Wherever you land, in front of the family tv or with a portable screen (or makeshift one with a sheet) and projector outdoors, make sure everyone is extra comfy. Pillows and blankets are accessories to provide that lux amenity that fine cinemas have. Don’t skimp—give everyone their own blanket so there’s no squabbles over sharing.

When planning an event (even something as simple as movie night), get the kids involved. They’ll enjoy getting to be a part of the festivities. Let them decorate the space—perhaps putting up streamers in the doorways or laying down some “red carpet” walkway to make all guests feel like stars. Don’t forget to announce the time and name of the movie. This cute message board will easily do the trick. Of course, a poster board and some markers work as well.

Everyone knows that one of the best parts of seeing a movie is the popcorn. Create that buttery, fresh-popped goodness right in the comfort of your own home with these machines that could rival the real thing at the concession stand. Don’t forget the butter! And, go a step beyond the ordinary and whip up some sweets, like ice cream, gelato, snow cones, cotton candy and more. These confectionary devices can lend a hand. Raid the pantry for chips, crackers or candy to complete the junk food overload. What a treat!

So, let’s all go to the movies…even if it is at home. Introduce the kids to some of your favorites, watch a romance or action thriller with your partner, or indulge in an animated marathon. Or, simply stream one of those shows that everyone’s been talking about and you hadn’t gotten around to catching up.
