by Jessie Breheim • October 21, 2022

Looking for a great cold-weather activity that everyone can enjoy? Plan for a top-notch movie night at home! Create the ultimate movie experience by following these five steps.

1. Optimize Your Setup

Having a great movie night starts with a great home theater setup. A receiver that can play DVDs is a great staple for movie night as it provides seamless connectivity. You want to also have your sound optimized since great-quality sound can make all the difference while watching a movie. It really helps immerse you further into the story! And for those that are hard-of-hearing, TV headphones are a great way to be able to better hear the movie without blasting the actual TV volume so loud that your neighbors call the cops. 

2. Select a Great Movie

Finding a great movie doesn’t have to be hard! And there are several ways to go about picking a movie to watch. One fun method is to research which movies you’d like to watch, write down the names of them on pieces of paper, put the paper in a jar, and select a movie! If you want to go all out with it, you can also have different jars based on genres. If you’d like a method with a little less effort, check out some DVD sets that have several movies included in multiple-DVD sets. This is also great for when your WiFi signal is spotty and you want uninterrupted viewing.

What’s movie night without popcorn?! Making popcorn this way is a healthy choice and you can add your favorite seasonings too, like garlic, dill, powdered ranch, cinnamon sugar, or whatever else your heart desires! Pair it with some cool drinks and you’re all set.
