- 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.

- 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.
