Host an outdoor movie night in your backyard for your family, or invite a few friends or neighbors and their families to join you and make a party out of it.
Fort Lee, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Drawing on the drive-in movie fad of past decades, guest blogger Liz Ernst offers up a new idea for summer entertaining with a “Movie Under the Stars” party featuring all the fare and fun of the real thing, minus the station wagon and packed parking lot.
The blog, titled “Host an Outdoor Movie Night”, offers families and friends all the joys of a Friday night drive-in, from hot buttered popcorn and candy, to pajama-clad movie watching under the cover of night. This is the first in a series of summertime entertainment ideas MommyHotSpot.com will offer in upcoming months.
For those too young to remember the drive-in theater experience, an outdoor movie night is a great opportunity for celebrating some elements of the mid-20th century drive-in experience, and making new memories with some 21st-century conveniences.
“Host an outdoor movie night in your backyard for your family, or invite a few friends or neighbors and their families to join you and make a party out of it,” Ernst says. “Have guests show up in their favorite PJ’s and bring a blanket and pillow if they’re so inclined, and set up a large screen television by the pool or in the yard with an attached DVD player or Netflix lineup of some old time favorites.”
Guest ages will govern the movie content; teenagers and adults may love a lineup of old horror flicks or Golden Age of Hollywood dramas, but if there are little ones in the audience its best to stick to more appropriate choices. There are plenty of kid-friendly movies that adults can enjoy too; “The Wizard of Oz”, “The Lion King” and “Beauty and the Beast”, to name a few. After the younger set goes to sleep, older audience members can enjoy as much “Halloween”, “Bride of Frankenstein” or “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” as they like.
An outdoor movie night themed party should include some old drive-in staples: popcorn, candy, and root beer floats, for instance. Ernst suggests that hosts recall the treats they enjoyed at drive-ins, and pick the brains of others who may have vivid recollections of washing down hot dogs and potato chips with Coca Cola in the old-fashioned green bottle.
