National Movie Night

Lights, Camera, Action!

National Movie Night is the second Friday in June and the perfect night to take your love of movies and create something truly amazing with it by inviting all of your friends and family over, throwing a themed party, and having a huge screening of your favorite film. 

Sharing movies with our kids has been one of my greatest joys. Movies give us a sense of belonging and connect us not only to the characters whose lives we are watching unfold but to those who enjoy this magical experience with us.

We love movies more than Olaf loves warm hugs!

We are a family of movie fanatics every day of the year, but when my newly established National Movie Night holiday comes around, we pull out all the stops.

Wherever you choose to celebrate, there’s one item you just can’t be without - my Movie Night Journal.

This keepsake journal features a how-to guide for planning the perfect movie night, space for detailed lists of dozens of movie genres, hundreds of movie ideas, and fun activity sheets. Each movie night can be enjoyed by filling in the pages to keep track of what you watch and when, who liked it and who didn’t, and the most memorable parts – either the actual movie scenes or memories that were made as you watched! It’s one of my favorite movie night extras.
