Amanda Panda here – still thinking about what kind of party I should throw for my friends.
I love watching movies, so one of the themes I’ve been considering is a Movie Night. I could rent two or three of the latest new releases and snuggle up on the couch with my best friends and some popcorn. I’ve been trying to think of some fun ideas that would make my movie night really unique.
An amusing way to let my friends know they’re invited would be to make my own invitations by creating ticket stubs that they could present at the door when they arrive. I could even pretend to be an usher and show them into the ‘screening room’ with a flashlight.
I could decorate the room with movie posters. Cutting movie ads out of newspapers and magazines would be an inexpensive way to get the look of actual movie posters. Enough ads posted around the room would really capture the feel of the cinema. I could even set up a ‘Concession Stand’ in the corner where I serve popcorn, candy and drinks.
Between DVDs we would have an ‘intermission’ of course. During intermission, it would be fun to play some movie-based games like:
- Movie Trivia: general movie trivia
- Movie Quiz: if I watched the DVDs before my guests arrive, I could make up a quiz based on each movie and test my friends to see who was paying attention
- Movie Quotes: I could make a collection of quotes from my favorite movies and see if my friends can remember which movies they’re from
- Movie Charades: we could play charades based on movies and characters from popular movies like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Harry Potter
I think a movie night is a really cool idea for a party. I will definitely add that to my list of possibilities.
