There’s no better way to spend time with the family and close friends you love than by cozying up on the couch and having a movie night. You could be thinking, do you really need to plan a movie night when it’s at home? The answer is a resounding yes because that’s half the fun.
Although sometimes, all you need is the right movie and a bowl of popcorn, there are also those times when you want your movie night to be extra special. Whether it’s incorporating CBD hemp flowers into your night, putting up a few acoustic panels, or having some Hawaiian haze bud on hand to help with stress, there’s a lot you can do to make movie night the best. In this article, you’ll find a few of the best ways to plan the ultimate movie night for your family, and even a few of your closest friends, if you chose to invite them along for the ride.
Create the perfect space.
If you’re one of those that takes your movie watching extremely seriously by turning off the phones and the porch light so people can’t call or visit during movie time, then you might want to consider purchasing some sound dampening panels for the theater room. If you can’t abide by any outside noise penetrating and disturbing your movie, then having these panels installed is the right choice for you. Not only do they work for the absorption of sounds they also come in different colors, shapes, and textures, so you can decorate your movie room however you see fit. Make sure that you choose the right acoustic panels for your sound dampening by doing careful research into the insulator package you choose.
Make a plan.
How many times have you settled down to watch a movie, only to search and search and search? Finally, you give up and head to bed. If you plan ahead, then you’ll already have a movie or movie in mind. After all, sometimes it’s hard to get everyone to agree on what movie to watch. If you can’t decide, have everyone pick a movie and write it down, throw the scraps of paper in a hat, and then choose one at random. The winner is the movie you watch, or you can do a movie marathon so everyone gets to watch the movie they choose, which cuts down on fights between the kids as well.
Stock your cooler.
One thing you don’t want to have to do is pause the movie constantly to get up and go get another beer for yourself or soda for the kids. If you stock a cooler with those items ahead of time, then everyone can just reach in and get what they want without having to pause the movie. For the adults in the house, you might want to stock up on hemp flower CBD products as well. CBD products are the perfect complement to movie night. This CBD flower comes from a hemp plant that will make the movie more enjoyable and you and your spouse stress-free and ready to watch movies all night long. Whether your cannabinoid is Hawaiian haze bud a local hemp strain, THC, or CBG, make sure that you do your research to determine which hemp flower is the safest and best option for you.
Set the scene.
Whether you’re curled up on the bed or having a viewing in the living room, setting the scene can make movie night even more special. Dim the lights, hook up your surround sound, and bring out all the essentials you need to get comfortable. Make sure that everything is within reach before you hit play on the movie, that way you won’t have to pause for snacks and other necessities. From your soundproof room to your CBD hemp flower products, your scene will be set to perfection when the night begins. Oh, and don’t forget the pajamas for everyone in the family as well.
One of the biggest benefits of movie night at home is that you don’t have to get dressed to go to the movie theater. Before the movie starts throw on a pair of luxury pajamas, whether they are long-sleeved flannel or short baby doll pajamas, you want to be comfortable while you’re watching your movie. The right pj’s can make all the difference in how comfortable you are when the movie starts. Slip into your coziest pajamas and settle down to watch movies with the family tonight. Add CBD-rich hemp flower to the mix and you’ll have the time of your life together this upcoming movie night.
Grab popcorn and snacks.
It’s a well-known fact that you can’t have a movie night without popcorn. You can keep it simple with pre-popped popcorn, or if you want more of a theater experience, invest in a tabletop popcorn machine, butter, and popping corn to do it yourself. There’s nothing better than salty, buttery popcorn, and a movie night, wouldn’t you agree?
Make sure you have sweets, too.
While you might have the salty covered with the popcorn, there are a few other snacks that you might want to include in your movie night preparations as well. After all, there’s nothing like the taste of popcorn and chocolate to make the movie even better. Make sure to make a list and grab everyone’s favorite sweet treat so everyone is covered and happy before the movie begins.
Get some comfy blankets.
You can’t watch a movie without being comfortable. You’ve already put on your pajama set, you’ve dimmed the lights, have your cannabidiol products, and your sweet and salty snacks, all that’s left is to spread comfortable blankets all around the room. Let everyone choose their favorite blanket, then settle in for a night of fun together. If it’s just a small family gathering, you can even pull mattresses into the living room, scatter them across the floor and have a sort of a campout while you watch.
Turn up the volume.
The one thing you don’t want to skimp on, especially if you intend on having weekly movie nights is the sound quality of your movies. The sound quality is extremely important because you want to feel like you’re in a movie theater. If you’ve already put in some acoustic panels, you may as well enjoy the audio, right? Anyone knows that surround sound makes a movie so much better. So, do your research, choose the best surround sound system for you, and turn up the volume on your movie night.
Create a themed movie night.
Now that you have your movie night partly planned why not take it a step further and make it a themed movie night instead. There are many different options from a theater theme to a pajama theme and much, much more. Your imagination is the limit, but make sure that the food you serve is themed as well for added excitement. Make sure that you get the proper props and even pajama sets for each person in the family to match the theme as well. There’s nothing cuter or more fun than a family dressed alike watching movies together and don’t forget to let your family in on the planning as well. Planning a themed movie night can be just as much fun as watching the movies themselves.
Just have fun.
The biggest thing to do when planning that ultimate movie night is to remember to have fun. This is the perfect time for you and your family to bond and create memories together. Who knows, movie night could be a tradition that will be passed down throughout the generations by your family for years to come.
These are just a few ways that you can host the ultimate movie night for your family and even some of your closest friends. The point is to have fun as a family watching movies together on a certain night of the week. Make it a tradition, switch up the theme and food, and you will make enough memories to last a lifetime and beyond with the people you love, watching the movies that you all adore.
