There’s nothing quite like a movie night, is there? When the weather’s cold outside and the evenings begin drawing close, there’s nothing better than cozying down under a blanket and watching a movie. If you are going to have a movie night at home, then be sure to invite a friend, family member, or partner. Movie nights with company are always more enjoyable. There are also many other ways that you can make a movie night more fun, from snacks to banning cell phones.
This article will explain nine things that can make a movie night more fun:
When you are settling in for a movie night, there’s nothing more irksome than your movie companion absently scrolling through their phone. Phones can really ruin the atmosphere of a movie night. So, unless you are watching movies on a phone, ban them for the evening. Have everybody involved agree to turn their phones off, and, if necessary, put them inside a sealed bag. While phones are very useful devices, they can be very distracting. With all of that said, if anybody present is expecting an important phone call then by all means allow them to keep their phone on and with them.
If you’re going to be holding a movie night at home, snakes are a necessity. You wouldn’t go to the movie theatre and skip out on popcorn and sweet treats, would you? The best part about having a movie night at home is that you can get snacks for next to nothing. Movie theatre snacks are always very expensive. Head on down to the $1 shop and pick up bags and bags of potato chips, sweets, biscuits, and cakes. Empty all of them into bowls and set them up on your snack table, so your guests can help themselves. Ice cream is also a good addition.
In addition to snacks, you could also invest in some edible delta 8 gummies. Delta 8 is a psychoactive component of the Cannabis plant, which has become very popular over the last few years. Most people agree that delta 8 THC gummies provide an intense, but fun high. If you are new to Cannabis, then stagger your consumption, so that you don’t get too high. The intensity of a delta 8 high can be a bit too much for beginners.
When you go to the movie theatre, you are surrounded by speakers. That’s why the experience in a movie theatre can be so immersive. If you want to recreate the ambience of a movie theatre, then invest in some home speakers. You don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for home speakers. You can get them for next to nothing second-hand or alternatively, you can get them brand new, but stagger your payments with a service like Klarna. Make sure to do your research so that you can find the best speaker possible.
If you don’t want to load up on sugary snacks, then you could just order pizza. Eating pizza with a movie is a lot of fun. In fact, one of the downsides to visiting the movie theatre is that you can’t bring pizza with you. Ordering pizza can be expensive, so if you are having guests over make sure that you all chip in. Be sure to also look for discount codes, promotional offers, and sales. Pizza’s delicious, and it tastes better the next day, so if you have any leftovers you will have a tasty [but unhealthy] breakfast waiting for you in the morning.
When most people have a movie night at home, they turn on their televisions and cut the lights. If you want to offer your guests an immersive and superior experience, then you want to invest in a film projector. A projector can make watching films much more fun. Film projectors can be picked up for next to nothing if you shop second-hand. You can also [as previously mentioned], shop with services like Klarna. Only invest in a projector if you have room for it, however. If you live in a small, studio apartment, it might be a waste of money. You can also make your own pizza, which can be a fun group experience.
If you are holding a movie night at home, you need to get the mood right. There are many ways that you can do this. The key thing is to transform your home into a movie theatre so that you can forget about your surroundings and lose yourself in the film. Put blackout curtains up, or alternatively, bedsheets, shut the doors, and turn the lights off. You should also rearrange your furniture so that it’s more comfortable to watch the film. Don’t be afraid to let things get a little messy, you can always tidy up in the morning.
Pick a Film
There are lots of streaming services that you can use to watch movies. If you are going to hold a movie night, then make sure that you know what you’re going to watch beforehand. Going into a movie night blind can ruin your evening. There’s no guarantee that you are going to find a film if you start looking an hour before the night’s meant to begin. Do your research a few days or weeks in advance, so that you can make the night as perfect as possible.
Blankets and Pillows
Another great thing about movie nights at home as opposed to in theatres is that you can wear your pajamas and cuddle up with the people that you love under a blanket. If you want to make your movie night fantastic, then go out a few days beforehand and invest in a few duvets. They don’t have to be expensive, they just have to be new, so that you can give your guests one each when they attend. You can always donate them to charity or give them away the next day. Make sure to always have lots of pillows and blankets on hand.
