Choose the Film Beforehand

One of the most demanding aspects of watching a film at home is that you can spend hours squabbling over what movie to watch and often end up with a tired flick that no one is interested in. It is, therefore, essential that you come up with what film you are going to watch before the night starts. There are several ways to make this decision, from a poll to a draw, all of which should be done before the evening begins.

You want to turn up knowing what film you will watch and where you can find it. You do not want to waste time choosing and finding channels. Having this sorted before the night begins is a great start!

Theme Your Food

Eating great food in front of a film is such a treat. So, why not make the experience more exciting and have a themed night? Match your food with the vibe of the film. Italian Job, get a pizza. Lost in Translation, maybe some sushi.

If choosing food to match a movie is one step too far, you can opt for an exciting cuisine that you wouldn’t usually go for. There are many exciting film food options.

Get the Right Equipment

There are two essentials for movie night 1: a good projector and 2. comfortable seating. If you have both of these, then you are good to go.

Sound and Lights

Once you have got your filmed picked, cinema set-up, and food sorted, it is time to set the mood. Lighting and surround sound are essential adjustments. You do not want any overhead lighting or lights that will cause a glare, but you need enough to see your food.  In terms of sound, you will wish for speakers that are good enough to play the movie. People suggest placing a portable speaker behind you, and you will feel immersed in the film.

Whether you have a big budget or a small one, movie night can be epic, so why not make it so.
