Did you know that the Lumière brothers were the first to present projected moving pictures to a paying audience in 1895? Of course, cinema has come a long way since then, with blockbusters constantly coming out and theaters available worldwide. But sometimes you just don’t want to go to the cinema and would prefer to watch a movie from the comfort of your home.
So, keep reading for four tips on how to host the best movie party for you and your friends!
1. Comfort Food
One of the worst parts of going to the cinema is the price of the snacks and the available selection. When hosting a movie night, you have free reign when it comes to food and drink.
There is no rule that says you can only serve popcorn and candy when watching a movie, so get creative when setting the menu.
2. Theme Night
The only thing that can make a movie night better is by throwing a theme night. You can decide on a general theme or movie genre to pick movies from or theme the night around a series of movies.
Once you’ve picked a theme and the movies, you can start decorating! You don’t need to break the bank with this either; a few homemade decorations and food based on the theme will drive the point home.
If you want to be extra creative, you can even ask your friends to dress according to the theme!
3. Outdoor Movie Night
By deciding to host an outdoor movie night, you’ll get the best of both worlds. You’ll be getting out of your house and getting some fresh air while still not needing to go to the cinema. Your friends will love the idea of an outdoor movie night where they can bring their own snacks and blankets to cozy up with.
You can easily find a projector screen rental in your area, so you don’t need to worry about finding a sheet or wall to project your movie onto.
4. Get Comfy
One of the benefits of hosting movie parties is you get to decide the seating. Gone are the days of stuffy cinema seats that aren’t cleaned as often as you like. Instead, you get to pick out the comfies seats and cushions in your home for the event.
If you’re hosting an outdoor movie party, you can even get creative with blankets and cushions to build the ultimate comfort nest for you and your friends. Just remember to provide some cozy throws for your guests in case the night turns chilly!
Movie Party Made Easy
Hosting a movie party should not only be fun, but also a memorable experience. By skipping the cinema, you’ll have free range when it comes to snacks (that don’t cost an arm and a leg!), seating, and the general vibe of the event. So go ahead and make the night magical for you and your friends!
