1. Pick your movie together.

The first step in planning a successful movie night is picking a movie that everyone in your family will enjoy. This can be a bit tricky if you have a large age range among your kids, but it can be done. Choose a classic family flick that will be entertaining for the littlest ones and enjoyable for the older ones. If it’s just you and your significant other on vacay, then make it a date night with a cozy romantic movie right in the comfort of your vacation rental.

2. Plan your movie night fun and festivities.

Any memorable event requires a little bit of pre-planning. Make your DIY movie night extra special with unique touches that go beyond just choosing the DVD. Make a quick and easy Now Playing marquee with the movie title and show time, put together some special snacks or set up your own concession stand, hand out admission tickets, and/or invite your family, friends or neighbors over for a fun night in.

3. Put out a popcorn bar.

No movie night is complete without copious amounts of popcorn. Take your popcorn to the next level of fun and deliciousness by personalizing it with your favorite toppings. You can offer an assortment of toppings from sprinkles and candies to spices and flavorings. You’re only limited by your imagination! A popcorn bar is super simple to set up and fun for all ages (and palates).

4. Prepare to get comfy.

Turn up the AC, grab some blankets and make use of the fireplace if you have it. Spread out some pillows on the floor and find your spot. However you and your family choose to get comfortable in your Indian Rocks Beach vacation rental is up to you, but go ahead and make it as inviting as possible. When everyone is ready with snacks in hand, all that’s left to do is enjoy the show. You may have so much fun that you’ll want to do it more than once during your beach vacation.

 What better way to end a day full of sun, sand and fun than with a cool and relaxing movie night in your Indian Rocks Beach vacation rental? We can’t think of anything better. Have fun and enjoy the show.
