What better way to spend time with your loved ones than planning a cozy movie night at home? Now, you might be thinking, do you really need to plan a movie night when you're at home? The short answer is no, sometimes all you need is your pajamas and Fire Stick and you’re good to go. But sometimes it’s fun to shake things up a bit and make movie night extra special. Check out these five tips that will make your next movie night at home one to remember. 

Plan Ahead

How many nights have you spent hours searching for the perfect movie to watch, only to give up and hit the sack? The key to planning a successful movie night is to plan ahead. First thing first, choose the movie! This seems rather simple but sometimes getting everyone to agree on the perfect flick can be a challenge. Can’t agree? Make it fun and throw everyone's picks in a hat and choose at random. Better yet, make it a movie marathon and watch multiple movies. 

Set The Scene 

Set the scene by transforming your living room into the ultimate movie theatre experience. You can create an exciting cozy atmosphere with a few special touches. Dim the lights, hook up the surround sound, and bring out all of your comfy essentials. Luckily, we have you covered when it comes to cozy essentials.

Don’t Forget The Snacks

You simply can’t have a movie night without the snacks! Popcorn of course is a classic choice. Take your popcorn to the next level with some freshly melted butter. For an extra special touch create a DIY snack bar filled with all of your favorite treats and goodies. If you are having a family night with the kids make them a little bento box with their favorite treat, some popcorn, and a drink to avoid pause interruptions throughout the movie.
