Hotel Transylvania Family Movie Night


One of our favorite things to do together as a family is to have movie nights. We will come together as a family, enjoy tasty food and stream our favorite movies while creating memories that will last a lifetime together. When I learned about the all-new app Movies Anywhere, I thought it was a great idea to plan a ‘Halloween-themed’ movie night and downloaded Hotel Transylvania on the app.

My favorite part of our family movie nights is creating food that is themed after the movie. Since I knew that we were going to be watching Hotel Transylvania, I thought of some fun vampire and bat-themed foods to serve.

For our drinks, I made a spooky fruit punch and served the drink in science beakers. I made a little bit of smoke in the drinks with dry ice that made the kids squeal with delight. It was their favorite drink that I’ve ever made.

Since I always like to serve a healthy snack during our movie nights, I made ‘ghostly fruit skewers.’ You can use any type of fruit to make the skewers and use a food pen (available at your local craft store) to turn the marshmallows into ghosts.

I was lucky to find some test tubes at our local craft store, and I filled them up with little black chocolates and called them ‘bat droppings.’ The kids got a kick out of it and laughed every time that they ate one.

Remember the green blob in the movie? A simple way snack themed after the green blob is to take green jello cups and add candy eyes. Simple, fun and delicious.

No movie night would be complete without popcorn! I always have lots of popcorn available when having a family movie night.

The new Movies Anywhere app made it easy for us to stream the movie. The free app and website feature movies from Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Walt Disney Studios (encompassing Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), Twentieth Century Fox, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros. Entertainment, offering a library of over 7,300 movies at launch.

Bring your family together tonight to have an unforgettable Hotel Transylvania movie night using Movies Anywhere. It is guaranteed to be a night that your children will remember forever!
