Who said you have to go out to the movies to have a great evening that your family or friends will long remember and frequently want to recreate? A movie night at home is a budget-friendly, easy, and enjoyable way to spend time together. The key to a successful movie night at home is making it special. When you have great snacks, sweet treats, comfy seats and blankets, and of course, something great on the screen, you have all you need to create lasting memories!
Whether your crew is all about award-winning productions or the latest rom-com, picking the perfect movie is important. Equally as important is how you set up your at-home theater. Comfy blankets are a must, and of course, you need special snacks and treats. We've gathered up a few of our must-haves for the perfect movie night at home, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
Popcorn: The key to any great movie night experience is the popcorn! Whether you throw a few bags in the microwave or pop it on the stove old-fashion style, don’t forget to add butter to make it taste just like the theater favorite! Serve family style in a large bowl that you pass around or make individual servings for everyone to enjoy.

Candy and Treats: A trip to the theater isn’t complete without a little something sweet. Purchase individual candy containers or whip up some homemade sweet treats for your family to devour. The great part of movie night at home is you are in charge of the sugar intake which is especially important when you have little ones with bedtimes. Create healthy versions of your favorite candies or serve cut up fruit for a sweet and satisfying option.
Comfy Seating: You can’t properly enjoy movie night without comfy seating. You can always opt for bean bags on the floor but for a truly unforgettable movie night, a plush sectional for the whole family to pile up on is the way to go! Whether you go with a Southern Motion Reclining Sectional or a large 5 Piece Palmer Sectional, you and your family or friends are sure to be relaxed and ready to enjoy the featured film.

A Great Movie: Of course, the most important part of movie night is a great movie! If you are having movie night with small children, a Disney movie may be the perfect way to keep their attention and make sure the content is appropriate. If you have older children or are inviting over friends, browse popular new releases or consider a throwback to a classic. Be sure it's a movie that everyone can agree on and even consider making a fun theme based on the movie you chose.
