One of the best ways to spend a good time with family is to have a movie night. Almost all the members of your family will love to watch a movie and when you watch it together, the atmosphere can be very enjoyable.
Instead of just sitting in front of the TV and watching the movie, you can increase your excitement with various add-ons. Here are some tips.
Just like you get dressed to go to the movie theatre, get into fancy clothes to set the mood. Everyone will look good and feel good too. This will give you the excuse to take a family picture too.
Set the stage
You set the atmosphere of your living room like that of a theatre. You can roll out a carpet in front so that everybody can sit comfortably. You should switch on low lights to get into the theatre mood. If you have a home theatre, then you should make sure that the sound settings are at their best. If there is a projector, then put it on.
Choose the right movie
You must remember it’s a family movie night where people of all ages will be watching the best movie. So, don’t put on movies that are too romantic with lots of sex scenes, or action movies with lots of violence, or even horror movies that will make the kids in your family suffer from nightmares.
It’s best to choose comedy movies where the content is much more suited for the entire family. Now, there are various channels like Netflix or Amazon Prime from which you can select the comedy movies to watch. Comedy movies will make you all laugh till you drop.
You should have some snacks handy like popcorn, soft drinks, chicken fry, chips, and chocolates. The movie is no fun unless you have something to nibble. Having delicious snacks together can increase your enjoyment.
While watching a movie, you also get to interact with each other. Try these out a couple of times a month at least and recreate the bond with your family.
