Movie Night

Watching movies is one of our favorite things to do! It is a great way to escape, laugh, cry, dance or be scared. And on top of that, movie nights are a great way to snuggle up with your family or hang out with your “quarantine” buddy.

Movie night is more than sitting still and staring at a screen, it creates new memories. We are sharing 7 ways to make your movie night extra special.

Let’s start organizing!

1. Choose your movie wisely: Are you watching with kids? Disney Plus is your channel. Are you watching with your housemates? Comedy will do the trick. Or are you excited to scare a little? Thriller movies can satisfy your appetite.

2. Get comfy: Throw a lot of pillows, stuffed animals and blankets on your couch, wear your favorite lounge wear and relax.

3. Create the mood: Turn down the lights, light up the candles.

4. Pop the popcorn: A movie night is not complete without popcorn. Are you team salty or team sweet? Or would you like to step out of your comfort zone to try something new! Find the recipes below of The Marshmallow Peanut butter or The Rosemary & Lemon Popcorn.

5. Snacks and drinks for the whole evening: ‘We have too many snacks’ – said no one ever. Prepare yourself with nachos, pizza, candy bars, cookies, toasties, sodas in various flavors or a create your own cocktail.

6. Home alone? Download ‘Netflix Party’: The new way to digitally watch Netflix with a group. Chat with your movie buddies to share opinions, jokes and facts about the movie.

7. Movie & games: Make movie night playful, challenge everybody with the Pulitzer Movie Bingo! Who will be the first to yell ‘BINGO’?
