How to Make Family Movie Night More Fun

This post is sponsored by All opinions are my own.

Each week we look forward to family movie night. It’s a great way to spend time together without leaving the house or breaking the bank. Choose a day that works for everyone to have a memorable night that your family will love. Sit back, relax and enjoy the movie!

Create a Home Theater

You don’t need special equipment or furniture to turn your living room into a home theater. You can rearrange the furniture you already have into movie theater rows with the couches or set up any other furniture you may have to mimic a theater.

Make a Snack Station

Get plenty of snacks to have on hand where everyone can choose what they want. You can even purchase the theater candy found at the dollar store or set out bowls of candy where they can go down the line and get their own.

Make it a Themed Night

Depending on what movie you watch, coordinate with it such as wearing a themed t shirt, food, decorations, snacks, etc. You can even print off activities to do before or after the movie as well.

Right now there is a sale happening at Kohl’s where Kohl’s cardholders can save 30% using code HOPPY30, and everyone else can save 20% with code SAVEIT on their purchase. Restrictions may apply. This would be a great time to stock up on essentials you may need for movie night. Since we are going to be indoors for awhile, I’m taking advantage of the sale and getting some of the following items to create our movie night. 

Movie Night Essentials

Cozy Blanket

This is a must when watching a movie. It’s a great way to get comfortable and stay warm. The Big One Super Soft Plush Blanket is a good one to get. It is oversized, soft and comes in a variety of colors.

Popcorn Maker

If you don’t already have a popcorn maker on hand this Bella Stir Stick Popcorn Maker pops corns evenly, easy to clean and also doubles as a serving bowl.


When you watch a movie you want to lie down and relax so a pillow is essential. This Koolaburra by UGG Kellen Throw Pillow is the softest and coziest pillow ever and comes in a variety of colors.

Comfy Pajamas

The last thing you want to do is wear uncomfortable clothes when watching a movie at home. Usually you go to bed right after watching it so wearing comfy pajamas would be essential to do. Cuddl Duds are my favorite pajamas to wear and this Cuddl Duds® Sweater Knit Pajama Set is so cozy and perfect for movie night.

And don’t forget the movie and snacks!
