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!
Discover Movies You Can’t See in Theaters
There are lots of superhero movies and action flicks in theaters these days, but when was the last time you watched an old-fashioned Western or a musical? Watch 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 films.
Try Some New Popcorn Recipes
Making popcorn at home is fun and easy, and we aren’t talking about just the stuff you throw in the microwave. There are lots of fun popcorn recipes that can be made on your stove that will make your movie night special. Bulk popcorn is very inexpensive and gives you the chance to experiment with a different recipe every time you snack. You can make other popular theater snacks as well, 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!
Design Your Own In-Home Theater
While many of us do not have surround-sound speakers or theater sets, most of us have lots of pillows and blankets that can create a super cozy couch setup (or a blanket fort). You can even turn your bedroom television into a theater screen and watch right from bed! Change up your seating arrangement to keep Movie Night separate from your usual TV routine and make your movie screening a fun and unique event.
Share Movie Night via Skype
Enjoy your movie experience with your friends 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 discuss your favorite scenes and catch up with your best buddies. Movie night can be a “gathering” that allows you to connect with long-distance friends.
Movie Night In is a delightful way to save money and keep your TV viewing 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.
