Who doesn’t love a movie marathon every once in a while? For some people, watching movies is a great way to relax. For others, movies are awesome entertainment! No matter what your stance is on movies, we all know that a movie marathon with like-minded friends is a great way to unwind and spend time together. That is why we have created this blog post with the top five best movie marathon themes. Keep reading below and comment which one is your favourite!
Sometimes it is great to go back to basics. A classic movie marathon would have red and white striped popcorn buckets, a lolly bar with all of your favourites, heaps of pillows and blankets and an awesome selection of movies. Singing in the Rain, Casablanca, Citizen Kane and The Wizard of Oz are some of my favourites!
This marathon is for the more adventurous groups of friends. It could also be doubled as a Halloween marathon. The food should be horror-themed with blood-red cupcakes, maggot ice cream (made with sour worms) and cake pops in the shape of severed fingers. Some suggestions for movies would be IT, Saw, Annabelle, The Nun, and A Quiet Place. If you are looking for some more child-friendly suggestions why not try Scooby-Doo, Ghostbusters, Frankenweenie or Monster House?
This theme is more directed at younger children or Barbie fanatics. My daughter grew up loving the Barbie movies and had plenty of Barbie-themed birthdays. The main rule is that everything has to be PINK! Pink popcorn, pink ice cream, pink candy and pink cotton candy. Try to decorate with pink pillows and furniture. Classic Barbie movies include Swan Lake, The Dimond Castle, The Nutcracker, Rapunzel and Fairytopia.
Not everyone is a musical fan, but I sure am! This theme should be paired with music-themed snacks including piano cupcakes, guitar strings (candy ropes) and drums (ice cream in a chocolate bowl). Movies to watch include The Greatest Showman, High School Musical, La La Land, Mamma Mia, Annie and Hairspray. You can also download the singalong versions for extra fun!
We all need a bit of romance in our lives every now and again. Why not try this movie night with you and your friends! The colours would be red/pink, white and black. All of the foods should be themed around this and shaped in little hearts. Why not buy some candy hearts to snack on? Popular movie suggestions would be Beauty and the Beast, Dirty Dancing, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Princess Bride and Pretty Woman.
