When it’s horrible weather, we tend to stay indoors rather than heading outdoors in the rain. It can be hard to decide what to do. But there’s nothing better than watching a fun movie indoors with friends or family! Here’re some tips on how to have a perfect movie night at home.
A good movie
You can’t have a movie night at home without having a good movie. Decide on what film genre you are really in the mood for. Then if you choose to watch more than one, you could also watch the sequels to have some more fun (although Harry Potter or Star Wars might take all night!) Before choosing a film, you should check the reviews online on sites such as imdb. There’s nothing worse for your mood than watching a bad film so make sure you read up first. Also, if you have kids with you, make sure you check out the rating first so that it’s appropriate for them.
If you want to have a movie night at home, you need to make sure to have delicious snacks to stop your stomach rumbling while you are watching. Pizza is always good to keep you full, or some traditional popcorn always goes down well as it’s so popular. You could have some all-time favourite chips & crackers to have a real treat. If you would prefer something more healthy, you could have some fruit or nuts while you are watching the film.
Cushions and duvet
If you want to be able to have a successful movie night at home, you should drag your duvet down from upstairs so that you can be comfortable. Then you need some cushions so that you can rest your back and head while you are watching the film. Some movies are really long, so you need to feel comfortable. Try not to go to sleep while watching though as you will miss the best part!
You can’t have a movie night without some company. Whether it’s your family or friends; it’s a great way to spend time together. And also, when you are watching a movie, you sometimes like to talk to the people in the room about what is going on. It’s not as fun if no one else is there with you. Try and arrange a movie night with some friends at your house.
A movie night at home is not complete if you haven’t got some comfortable clothes on. It might be your favourite pair of sweats or even lounge pants. Or for extra fun and comfort, you could change into your pajamas and dressing gown so that you can go straight to bed after. As you are going to be watching films for a while, you do not want to be sitting in your best clothes. If you spill snacks, at least, you can brush it off clothes that you don’t care too much about.
Remember, the most important thing it to have fun while watching a movie at home!
