Are you looking for fun movie night ideas? If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that both of my kids (David 19 & Sarah 24) have moved back home with their significant others (Meredith 18 & Christoper 27). It’s a full house and putting together a fun movie night takes a bit of effort. I received a fun movie night pack to inspire this post.

Fun Movie Night Ideas
Since my kids are older, we often share similar movie interests. Of course, there are a lot of times that we don’t. That’s where it gets challenging. There are lots of movie night ideas for adults to choose from. You can have a great movie night by choosing a few of these tips.
It stands to reason that there needs to be enough room for everyone to be comfortable. Don’t feel limited by chairs. Consider throwing a few body pillows and blankets on the ground. Drag in that beanbag chair you aren’t sure what to do with. Make sure there are throw pillows and blankets for those that want to get comfortable.
It wouldn’t be movie night without snacks for everyone to enjoy. G.H. Cretors is the perfect snack for at home movie nights. Whether watching a new film or an old favorite, nothing pairs better than a bowl of obsessively delicious popcorn. There are so many different flavors that there is something for everyone who attends movie night. Plus, it’s non-GMO! You can find their artisanal popcorn at Target, Walgreens and Rite Aid and of course, on Amazon.

Keep in mind that everyone will have different preferences. You may need to compromise on what you’ll watch so that everyone has a chance of enjoying it. If you absolutely cannot come to an agreement, you can always split up and let the kids watch one movie while you and your significant other watch a different one. Marty and I really wanted to watch Arrival with Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker. But, the kids were more in the mood to watch Moonlight with Trevante Rhodes, Janelle Monae, Naomie Harris, and Mahershala Ali. To compromise, we split up and everyone had a great time.
We keep it pretty simple at my house. We just get some huge popcorn bowls to hold our G.H. Cretors popcorn and we are all set. But, if you want to turn your movie night into a party, you can print out admission tickets, signs and invitations. You can get some fun popcorn boxes for everyone to hold their popcorn too.
So, I hope you can use a few of these movie night ideas at home for your next family together time! And, check out a few of my other movie reviews.
