Looks like it could be a long winter spent indoors getting to know our families even better. If snuggling up on the couch with your family with some popcorn sounds appealing, organizing a family movie night is a perfect way to have fun while spending quality time together. Here are some tips on how to make movie night the highlight of everyone’s week.
Set the Stage
Make this event truly spectacular by rolling out the red carpet, or your red tablecloth or blanket. Print out homemade admission tickets to the showing on your Samsung big screen smart TV from Buydig.com. Let one of your children use a hole punch to admit “guests” to the theater, or in this case, your family room. If you haven’t made the jump to a big screen TV just yet, create your own DIY big screen for this showing. You just need a white wall or bed sheet and a projector to hook up to your smart device.
Pick a Theme
pice things up a bit with costumes and props. Black robes and wands for a Harry Potter marathon, or princess dresses for an evening of Disney classics like Cinderella and Snow White. Did your kids just finish a book during online school, or a bedtime read? If you can find the book-inspired movie on the AT&T TV Entertainment Package, create your movie night around this as a culminating reward. During intermission, try some karaoke or sing-along to the songs from the movies.
Movie night is one night where eating in front of the TV is allowed. Kick it up a notch from pizza delivery and serve food that goes along with the theme of the movie. Serve up “butterbeer” during Harry Potter, some sushi or crab legs during Little Mermaid or a little gumbo while watching The Princess and the Frog.
Set up a section of your counter with favorite movie candies, popcorn, and different flavored seasonings. Toss in a few healthier treats to even things out a bit as well. Set out bags or bowls so each person can help themselves throughout the movie or during intermission.
Theater seats have come a long way, but you still have to pretty much sit upright at the theater. Take advantage of having more freedom to choose how you watch movies during your family movie night. Just like a real theater, keep the lights low. But make it even more comfy by breaking out sleeping bags, blankets, large floor pillows, and cushions so everyone can stretch out on the floor and find the perfect spot in front of the LGTV from Buydig.com.
Indoor family movie night is a great way to entertain the entire family!
