The holiday movie season is also awards season, so many film companies release the big guns at this time. This means cinemas can get pretty crowded and noisy, turning what should be a relaxing activity into a stress-laden one. Fortunately, you don’t have to brave the crowds. Just watch free movies online and enjoy them with your pals. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
Set a theme.
Make it feel like a film festival set right at home by having a theme. Be considerate, and think of movies that everyone will enjoy. Don’t make your friends watch foreign language films if they are not into them. Instead, go for movies that will sit well with everyone. Flicks like “Broke” and “Getting Wasted” are great choices.
Make sure your friends are ultra-comfy for movie night. Clear out all the clutter in the living room for a relaxing mood. If you don’t have a huge couch, invest in ultra-soft bean bags. If this is not possible, a bunch of pillows will do. Make sure the floor is squeaky clean so you can lay the pillows there.
Prepare movie snacks.
Potato chips and popcorn are always a hit in at-home film viewing. If there’s a bunch in the group who’ve sworn off unhealthy snacks as their New Year’s resolution, be sure to prepare healthy alternatives like nuts, or veggies and dip.
