Create an At-Home Concession Stand for Movie Night Parties

One of the most important items in creating the perfect Movie Night Party is putting together a concession stand. The real work mostly lies in the treats you feature!


For this movie night, a complete concession stand consisted of some of our simple, yet special, flavor packed movie night foods.

 

 

Fill your concession stand with classic movie candy and treats!

 

 

Offer soda served in old-fashioned bottles for a vintage vibe.

 

 

Fill popcorn boxes with freshly popped popcorn or try this delicious Homemade Italian Cheese Popcorn.

 

 

Turn up the heat by serving Spicy Nachos with Homemade Jalapeno Cheese.

 

 

Serve traditional Coca Cola Ice Cream Floats as a sweet dessert.

 

To Set Up Your Movie Night Concession Stand

To create the concession stand at your movie theme party, just follow these easy tips.

First, set out a plain white, medium-sized table and drape over a white table cloth.

Using the above items and recipes, and any other movie-themed snacks and/or drinks you like, arrange the items on the table in an orderly fashion. I think it’s best when items are neatly lined up in section, so moviegoers can grab items from different places on the table - just like at a theater.

I placed the popcorn in individual popcorn boxes to add an extra special movie touch, and people can individually take their own box of popcorn to their seat. Again, just like an actual theater experience. 

To emulate the theater further, I placed classic movie candy boxes in a movie tray. That way people will feel as if their taking candy from a real concession stand. 

If you want to get extra creative, place a mini popcorn-maker machine and a “Movie Night” sign on the table. All of these elements together will create the perfect Do-it-Yourself Concession Stand!
