Make It A Movie Night!

Got a group of teenagers to entertain?

Getting together with the neighbors and need some ideas?

Want to plan a rockin’ birthday celebration for your child?

Why not make it a movie night?

Putting together a movie night is simple.  Like most events, invite your guests and let them know what to expect when they arrive.  Choose a time that will allow for the movie and visiting before and after.  Weekend evenings work best for younger children and youth.

Next, find a film that will be of interest to the age group and personalities of the guests.  If the guest list is in the younger age group, make sure to keep the movie age-appropriate.  Movies are rated PG, PG-13 and R for a reason.  Focus on the interests of the audience.  Little boys aren’t interested in “The Little Mermaid” and teens don’t necessarily want to watch the latest “Care Bears” flick.  And, don’t be worried about showing something that the guests have already seen.  Most people will watch a familiar film over and over.  Look for classics as well as those that are new releases.

To make the event extra-special, decorate with a Hollywood theme.  Line your entry into the event with a red carpet for your VIPs.  Want some catchy decorations?  Use megaphones and clapboards. Serve up movie popcorn in authentic popcorn buckets for your guests.  For added ambiance, consider hanging movie night tablecloths from the walls and windows.  They make excellent window covers to make the room more theater-esque!

So, pull out those classics or go for the latest release.  Movies are made to entertain, and they are great for entertaining a group of people you gather together!
