Setting the Scene

Without a doubt, this wouldn’t be a complete list of movie night ideas at home without talking about the treats. What movie experience isn’t enhanced when there is an abundance of snacks?

Who started the popcorn trend anyway? Don’t get me wrong! I’m not complaining, I love popcorn, just wondering.

In fact, my kids have mentioned it would be cool to have a popcorn machine in our entertainment room when our basement is finished.

Popcorn I can handle, but the thought of open drinks in our newly finished basement with new furnishings (I’m dreaming about), makes me a little anxious!

Undoubtedly, I’ll be investing in some of these awesome soda can lids with straws!

Creating an epic movie night

If you’re looking to go all out for an epic movie night here are a few ideas to create a cinema experience.

Along with continual developments in technology, clearly the cost of electronics are getting more and more affordable. With this in mind, many are investing in mini portable projectors and screens, which make for the perfect movie night indoors or out!

For example, a magical ambiance can even be created with these star twinkle lights.

If your family has a hard time choosing or agreeing on a show, how fun would it be to have one of these scratch off movie posters to help make the decision? In fact, you can even customize them to specific show titles you’re interested in!

Once the show has been decided, why not display it on this cool light up marquee box? Particularly his specific marquee includes 144 pieces with the full alphabet, symbols and emojis and even has 16 color options to choose from!

Without a doubt, my kids would be fighting over who gets to display the title!
