Everyone likes to arrange movie nights and spend them with their friends. However, you need to make sure you cover all the bases if you don’t want to feel disappointed. There is nothing worse than stopping a film just after it starts because you forgot to buy any popcorn, right?
Well, if you follow the advice on this page, you’re guaranteed to have a fantastic evening. We’ll provide you with somewhat of a tick list to ensure you leave no stone unturned. With a bit of luck, your friends will want to return every week.
- Create a suitable space for watching your movies
We released a post a few days ago that covered how to create a binge-watching paradise in your living room. If you’ve like to check that out before going any further, do so, and then come back. All the advice on that page is relevant here too. You need to think about people’s positions in the room, and how to arrange furniture for the best sound. You should also make sure your TV is linked to the internet. Lots of people choose to watch movies on Netflix or MovieBox these days because there is a broad selection. You should think about doing that rather than limiting your guests to your DVD collection.
- Make sure you have snacks and drinks
The people who come to your house to watch movies will probably bring some snacks and drinks. However, you’re the host, and so you need to provide them too. Head out to your local store and buy lots of different chips and sweets. You should also think about getting fizzy soda like Coca-Cola alongside a few beers. At the end of the day, you just need to make sure you cover everyone’s tastes. The last thing you want is for someone to ask you to pause the film while they stroll to the shop. So, think ahead, and make sure you have everything ready at home before your guest’s arrival.
- Set a curfew to ensure nobody gets into trouble
It’s easy to lose track of time when watching movies with your friends. So, it makes sense to ensure you set a curfew. Either that or you need to limit yourselves to only watching one or two films on each night you arrange. The last thing you need is for an angry partner to call your landline in the middle of a new Star Wars classic. That could place a damper on the evening and discourage people from coming back the following week. Also, most of your guests will have work in the morning, so it’s best not to keep them out too late. Just give yourselves four or five hours, and you should be okay.
Now you know how to plan to perfect film night, we hope you will make the arrangements soon. It’s an excellent way to spend time with your friends in a relaxed environment. It’s much better than meeting in the pub or anything like that. You can chill and talk openly about anything, and you get a break from family life. So, what’s holding you back? Give your mates a call today.
