Classic Movie Night at South Winds Apartments

South Winds Apartments Blog, Fall River, MA  February is perfect to enjoy a classic movie night in your apartment. Check out these classic comedies soon.

A classic comedy may be just the ticket for a February movie marathon, and it’s a great way to spend an evening, too! We’ve got some movie suggestions as well as some ideas about how to set up for a movie night at your South Winds apartment in Fall River, MA.

 

Drinks

Soda is the typical drink for a movie night, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but if you want to step it up a bit, offer a hot chocolate bar as well. You may want to include a cider option for anyone who isn’t a fan of hot chocolate. Marshmallows, spices, peppermint sticks, chocolate chips, whipped cream, and candy will sweeten up any movie night.

 

Get Cozy with a Blanket Fort

If your movie night is a casual gathering, create your own blanket fort out of blankets and sheets. Be sure to include plenty of pillows to make your fort comfortable. Even if you don’t make a fort, a fleece blanket to wrap up in while you watch a movie is a good idea.

 

Lay out the Concessions

Chances are you have popcorn on hand, but add movie-style boxes of candy to your supplies.  With a little creativity, you will be able to make a smashing concessions bar. Along with the treats, consider offering fruits and veggies for a healthier choice.
