{theme} that movie!

goal #7 on my list is to start a movie night tradition.
i love, love, love movies & i'm the type of person that can spend an entire winter weekend on the couch with the husband, a comfy blanket, a bottle of wine and several movies. of course it doesn't have to be in the winter, but summertime makes me want to be outside!
so i've picked four movies that i love for four completely different reasons, but i thought they'd all be appropriate for a movie night that i'll host when it gets cooler outside.

for when you're hosting your intelligent indie friends:
vicky cristina barcelona
for this movie night, i'm picturing:
 bottles of red wine, 
a mini painting party (since javier bardem & penelope cruz's characters are painters...think: small canvases with watercolors for guests to take home),
and
paella for dinner (it does take place in spain, after all)


for a girl's night quote-along:
romy & michele's high school reunion
for this movie night, i'm picturing:
 gummy bears/jelly beans/candy corn ("all i've had to eat for the past 6 days"),
name tags a'la high school reunion
 and
spiked punch in a big bowl, just like what you'd find at an 80's prom.


for your group of friends that love stupid humor as much as you do:
step brothers
for this movie night, i'm picturing:
 chocolate chip pancakes for dinner ("i like to have fresh fruit in the house and chocolate chips in my pancakes"),
sweater vests or tuxedo shirts required,
and
as an activity - creating autotune songs on your iphone a'la "boats 'n hoes"


for watching with friends that have children, or adults like me that love wes anderson and anything stop-motion that's "supposed" to be a kid's movie:
the fantastic mr. fox
for this movie night, i'm picturing:
spiked apple cider (that's what floods the tunnel),
a christmas themed pot-luck (see picture below)
and
"thief masks" required


have you ever hosted or attended a themed movie night?
