start a movie night tradition

goal #7 on my 30before30 list is to start a movie night tradition. i've posted before about some themed movie nights that i wanted to host, but i realized i didn't have any halloween themed movies thrown in. 
so last week, i decided to invite just a couple of friends over to watch the shining. now, there wasn't much prep time for this because of the lovely 1:00-10:00 schedule worked the prior days, but - it was still a good time. 
i printed off some mazes for us to do since (spoiler alert!) that's where jack's journey ends, i made a rum drink with orange juice and grenadine to represent redrum, and the food was a little difficult...but since the walk-in freezer and pantry are semi-important in the movie, i decided to go with all frozen foods that you'd find in a big freezer. so we had mozzarella sticks, taquitoes, pizza and frozen cookie dough! 
sure, it's not the healthiest movie theme i could go with, but it was worth it. 

i'm hoping that this will turn in to a tradition that i host pretty regularly, and that some friends start hosting their own movie nights. 
next up at my house is romy & michele's high school reunion!

what movie night would you host?


  1. We watched a bunch of Japanese horror flicks last weekend..

    ...I am still scared.

    1. oh i'm not good at watching horror movies usually. i close my eyes for about 85% of the movie which means i don't know what's going on!

  2. I love your blog! this is my first time on here and it just awesome! :) Anyways - I hosted a movie night along with a cookie exchange party and we watched Julie Julia, and it went over quite well!

    1. thank you so much! i hadn't thought about hosting one for julie & julia - that's a great idea! it'd be fun to do potluck-style.
