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.
