Family Movie Night Theme Party Ideas

One of my fondest memories as a kid were the family movie nights my mom had on random Friday nights. I was lucky enough to grow up across the street from my cousins, so that meant family movie night meant having them over. While we might have taken everyday playtime for granted, we always got really excited for Family Movie Night.

While it may not seem like a theme party in the same sense as this luau party might, Mom took what would normally be any old night in and made it something special with a few easy theme party ideas.

We couldn't always afford to go to the theater with such a large crowd, so Mom brought some movie magic home to us.

Most of the time, movie night happened once a month and whatever movie we watched became the basis of the theme party we enjoyed. For instance, Hocus Pocus was our annual watch during Halloween season so we always had witch's brew to drink, candy apples to munch on and witches' hats to wear.

Any other non-holiday film sometimes proved a challenge since there was time and budget to consider, but these movie night party ideas always proved a hit - no matter how often they appeared at our theme parties.

Spend some quality time with your own family and consider making movie night more than just a pizza and soda kind of evening. With a few extra dollars, a bit of planning and lots of little hands to help, you too, can enjoy a fun family movie night theme party style!
