Virtual Movie Night Party Ideas

While summer ends and social distancing continues, it can be challenging to feel close to loved ones and friends in isolation. Social distancing measures have led people to adjust and find new ways to communicate through technology. One helpful way to stay close to friends and family is having a virtual movie night! Here are some tips on how to have a virtual movie night so fun that you’ll completely forget your friends aren’t right there next to you on the couch.

20. Mystery Movie

A mystery movie night is a fun idea if you and your friends have seen it all. Go on Netflix or any other streaming site and choose a random movie that none of your friends have heard of. This will either turn out to be great or turn out to be a laughable moment. It also helps broaden your movie horizon at the same time.

21. Vote on a Movie

Working as a group to decide on a movie choice over the phone will make you feel closer to one another! Getting to talk out your options on the phone is a great way to kill time and starts your call off with some exciting conversation. When you start arguing between the latest action film or an old indie drama, you’ll forget all about the distance. You can also split it up and have each friend pick one movie each week, allowing your movie nights to become a recurring theme.

22. Share Screens

Use a screen-sharing service like Screencastify, Zoom, or Netflix Party to make sure your movies start and pause at the same time! When you share your screens with one another, you will be able to stop and start the movie in the same place and continue your movie night without a hitch.

23. Pick a Theme

Picking a theme for your movie night party may add to the fun and excitement of getting together with friends virtually. A theme could be pajama night or Taco Tuesday! The ideas are endless when it comes to themes. Having a theme creates a fun opportunity for movie-themed party favors, decorations, and so much more! Make sure everyone’s onboard and able to go along with the theme for the night.

24. Snacks

Even if you can’t reach for the popcorn bowl from your friend’s lap, you can plan your snacks ahead of time and share what different treats you bring. Share movie snacks with each other before your virtual movie night and see what fun movie snacks your friends come up with! You’ll be amazed at how many ways a person can reinvent popcorn.

25. Genre

Picking a genre for virtual movie night is by far the most important thing. Genres like comedy, horror, action/adventure, thriller, romantic comedy, and sci-fi and great genres to choose from. Some way to pick movies from a genre of your choice is to ask each of your friends to pick a movie they like from that genre. All of you can then vote on one or two to watch that night. You can schedule certain genres for each movie night you have. This is great for a group of indecisive friends!

26. Previews

Before you watch the movie, host a preview session. Have each of your friends get up and tell everyone something new that’s been going on in their lives, an embarrassing moment, or a fun fact. This simulates the movie previews in a movie theater. It really breaks the ice and gets a lot of laughs.

27. Dress Up

Dress up as the characters from your favorite movies together! Coordinate on costumes and see what everyone comes up with. With all this time on your hands, your friends are sure to create some pretty creative looks.

28. Movie Games

Add some competition to the movie-watching experience! Play movie trivia games similar to those that may be shown in the previews at the movie theatre. Getting competitive with your friends will make you feel as though you are all together.

29. Try a Franchise

Spend a week dedicated to rewatching a classic movie franchise, like Fast and the Furious or Harry Potter. This will give you and your friends something to look forward to each night and will give you a nostalgic sense of comfort in a difficult time. You could also start a new franchise as a group and become obsessed with something new!

30. Stick to a Schedule

Keep planning your movie nights consistently so that you get to see your friends as regularly as possible! Making scheduled virtual movie nights can provide some regularity into your and your friends’ routines even when you aren’t able to see each other in person to provide support.

31. Rate Your Movies

Rate the movies that you recommend to one another after your viewing using a movie rate and review notebook. Spark a discussion on your favorite or least favorite movies and learn about each other’s tastes! This could lead to some meaningful insight or passionate debate.

32. Series Night

Instead of a movie, you can pick out a series to watch with your friends instead. Pick a night out of the week when everyone is free to watch one to two episodes of a new, interesting series. Then have an after-movie discussion as you would have in a book club. Discuss your feelings about the plot and characters and where you think the show is going. This is a great alternative to movie night.

33. Movie Birthday Party

The options for birthday parties can be pretty slim when taking into consideration social distancing. A fun way to enjoy the night can be holding a movie birthday party at home! Play the birthday boy or girl's favorite movie or a movie with a birthday plot. You could even go outside the box a little and hold a backyard movie birthday party outside with a projector.

Movie Night Party: Conclusion

Not being able to spend this time with loved ones can be very difficult, but a virtual movie night party can help ease that pain a little bit. Whatever movie you decide on or snack you choose to make, the most important part is that everyone has fun. It is our responsibility to make the most out of our situation, so make your virtual movie night the most fun night of your life!
