As the weather continues to cool the further we move into November, the desire to stay inside and watch cozy movies grows for many people. Why not host a movie night for your friends? We have the ultimate lineup to help you and your friends have the coziest movie night together!

1. Make your space comfy! How can you and your friends be expected to watch a movie without being in a comfortable environment? Make your space comfy with lots of pillows and blankets on a large couch. If you’re lacking in seating space, blow up an air mattress and have several people lay on it.

3. Grab your favourite snacks! No movie night is complete without an array of snacks. Ask your friends what kind of snacks they enjoy and be sure to stock those for them. Another option is to have each friend bring a different snack to share and do it potluck style.

4. Offer a drink selection! Now that you have the food taken care of, your next priority is drinks. Offer a wide selection to cater to everyone’s tastes. Popular choices include alcoholic beverages, soda, juice, or water.

5. Have a theme! Popular in recent years, themed movie nights are a fun way to change things up! The theme can be anything you want including according to the movie selection for the evening. Design everything around it including the food, drinks, and decorations in the space.

6. Invite your friends over earlier! Your friends don’t have to arrive to just immediately start watching a movie. Invite them over earlier for some time to socialize and chat before getting into the film. If everyone is bringing things, this also makes time to set everything up.

7. Cook a fun meal together! Movie nights can sometimes involve more than just watching a movie. Have everyone come a little early and cook a nice meal together. It can be a great bonding experience for friends and is a delicious addition to any movie night!
