How to Host a Successful Movie Night
One of the biggest mistakes people make, when hosting a moving night, is inviting friends over and just “winging it” after they arrive. You casually visit while your guests peruse through your movie collection and attempt to try to come to a consensus on what everyone will watch. Taking this approach results in wasted time, disagreements, and potentially unhappy guests.
To ensure everyone has a great time at your movie night, use these tips:
- Select the movie yourself to avoid disagreements between your friends. It is okay to get their input about the genre or if there are any recent releases everyone is interested in seeing, but, in the end, you need to decide what is best for the group.
- Set a date and time for the movie night. You can create a group event on Facebook to invite people and help them remember when it is.
- Inspect your home entertainment center ahead of time. Make sure all wires are plugged in and the surround sound is configured for the type of movie you will watch. Also, remember to verify all of your remotes are working and do not need new batteries.
- Stock up on popcorn, candy, and soft drinks. If you plan on having a large group, consider asking everyone to bring something to share.
- Enjoy the movie!
