Movie and TV Night-Themed Birthday Party Ideas

Any time of year is perfect to host a movie- or TV-themed birthday party. Get the room as dark as possible, switch off your phones, sit back and enjoy the show!

Comfortable seating—and plenty of it—is essential to a successful movie/TV night. If you're lacking in sofa space, be sure to clear out any tables to make room for extra chairs, ottomans and floor pillows. Set out dining room chairs, beanbags or even lawn chairs to ensure that all your guests have a comfortable place to sit with a clear view of the show. If you're still short on seating, ask guests to bring a cushion or folding chair along with them.

If the films or TV shows you'll be watching have a clear theme, try pulling it into your party decorations. For instance, glow-in-the-dark star stickers on the walls and ceiling lend an outer space touch to a Star Wars marathon. If your movies or TV shows don't have a particular theme, you can always hang movie posters around the house with "Now Playing" and "Coming Soon" tags underneath.

Your movie/TV party decor can also pay homage to the capital of entertainment: Hollywood. Roll a red carpet up to your front door, and block off your entrance with a velvet rope. Station a guest at the door with a clipboard, checking the list before people enter.
