A few months ago, we took a trip into downtown Boston to enjoy an outdoor movie night. We had so much fun that we decided to host our own movie night at home. This time of year, evenings are too chilly to host a backyard movie. Instead, we decided to turn our TV room into a movie screening party for my kids and their friends.
My kids had a blast making plans to surprise their friends with a fun experience at our house. Here is how we pulled together our own Movie Night for Kids featuring Orville Redenbacher’s Movie Theater Butter Popcorn.
Get creative with invitations. We found these adorable invites that look like movie tickets. These would be easy to make too!
Shop your local party store. We found an amazing package of movie-themed decorations for only $10. We surrounded the TV and decorated our refreshments table to make it look super festive. We also purchased popcorn bags so that each child could have their own, like in a real movie theater.
Make it casual and comfy. We told kids they could even come in their pajamas if they wanted to. Make sure to have blanket and pillows available so that everyone can get comfortable.
Don’t squeeze in too many. You want the kids to be comfortable. They typically need a bit of wiggle room. We brought down extra pillows and a few extra chairs so that everyone had a seat without blocking the view of anyone else.
Let the kids vote! We selected 3 movies and had the kids vote for their favorite. The winning movie was our feature for the night, as though they were at a big Hollywood award show.
Make a Popcorn Mix-ins Bar! The star of our refreshments table was Orville Redenbacher’s Movie Theater Butter Popcorn. We created a fun popcorn mix-in bar. My kids chose the mix-ins. They went with mini marshmallows, gummy bears, pretzels, and candy coated chocolates.
We all love the taste of the Orville Redenbacher’s Movie Theater Butter Popcorn. I love that it pops up in minutes to become a light and fluffy snack. Super easy to keep the kids satisfied and having fun!
Thanks for “popping” over and reading about our movie night ideas. Have any other ideas or kid movie night experiences?
Don’t forget the popcorn!
