(NC) The nice thing about cold weather is that it creates the perfect opportunity, or excuse, to enjoy the warmth of the family, or some quiet time alone. What sounds more pleasant than placing some wood in the fire and curling up in front of the TV with a new movie?
When planning a family movie night, be sure you are well equipped to meet everyone’s tastes. Here, from leading rental shops, Redbox, is a great little guideline to please them all:
Satisfy taste buds: Cover your bases and select a variety of salty, sweet, crunchy and chewy snacks. Try mixing chocolate and popcorn to create a sweet and savoury treat.
Keep things cozy: Plenty of pillows and blankets are the key to keep you warm and snuggly. They can also serve as the perfect shield during scary movies.
Feel the buzz: Nobody likes to feel out-of-the-loop when it comes to the latest buzz-worthy movies. Catch up on award-contenders and pop culture heroes.
Create a theme: If movie nights are a regular occurrence at your house and you have time for more than one movie, select a creative theme for the night that is fun for the whole group.
Have a variety of options available: Spread a selection of Blu-rays or DVDs on the table for your group to choose from. More options will make sure there’s something for everyone – and renting is ideal for this purpose.
