You don’t need to go to a theater to enjoy a great movie experience. You can create the perfect movie night right in your apartment. The best part is that you can even wear your pajamas!
Craft Your Own Theater Experience
While many of us may not have surround-sound speakers or theater size TV sets, most of us have plenty of pillows and blankets that can be used to create a super cozy couch setup (or a blanket fort). Turn your bedroom television into a theater screen and watch right from bed! Changing your seating arrangement keeps Movie Night fresh and separate from your usual TV routine to make your movie screening a fun and unique event.
Find New Popcorn Recipes
Making popcorn at home is fun and easy, and you aren’t limited to the stuff you throw in the microwave. There are plenty of fun popcorn recipes that can be made on your stove to make your movie night special. Bulk popcorn is inexpensive and offers you the opportunity to experiment with a different recipe every time you snack. You can also make other popular theater snacks, including nachos or chicken wings, to spice up your movie night. Unlike the theater, your treats won’t cost you an arm and a leg!
Share Movie Night with Friends via Skype
Include your friends in your movie experience via Skype, Zoom, or another webcam connection and hold a watch party. Synchronize your movie start time with your friends and watch “together” without leaving the house! After the movie, you can talk about your favorite scenes and catch up with your best buddies. Movie night can be a “gathering” and allow you to connect with long distance friends.
Watch Movies You Won’t See in Theaters
There are lots of superhero movies and action flicks in theaters, but when was the last time you watched an old-fashioned Western or a Broadway musical? Check out some classic movies you may have never seen, or revisit favorites you haven’t watched in years. You might even discover a new love for classic film.
Movie Night In is a great way to save money and keep your TV routine from becoming stagnant while you stay safe at home. You can recreate the feeling of going out and enjoying a special event without ever having to leave the house.
