Family Movie Night Ideas

Let's dive into some fun family movie night ideas — some tips and tricks to make sure your family movie experience is a true joy:

  • Set the Room Up Just Right: Movie nights are a lot of fun, so why not really get into it? Set up a home movie theater. Rearrange the cushions -- and even the room! Make it a fun and special time for the whole family
  • Pick a Night and Be Consistent: One fun way to make family movie nights successful is to make it a regular thing. Pick one day of the week when you and the family will always pick a movie and setup a fun experience. Consistency gives everyone something to look forward to!
  • Pick a Movie Everyone Loves: One small challenge when it comes to family movie night is that there can be some debate over family movies to watch. So, try and find agreement (we have thousands of amazing titles streaming right now on Pure Flix!). One idea is to let someone different choose the movie each week. This is a rotating way to make the movie choices fair!
  • Use Movie Nights as a Springboard for Discussion: One thing that can really help enhance any family movie night is picking family movies that inspire the whole family. Look for titles that can serve as a discussion point after the movie. Many times, there are powerful themes in various films that can really spark some amazing discussions. Be intentional about having those chats after you and your family sit down to watch these movies.
