Looking for a new way to get together with friends? Take the ‘Throwback Thursday’ idea that’s been cropping up on social media lately to a new level — host a Throwback Thursday movie night! Serve vintage-inspired treats and rediscover a movie that you loved as a kid. Better yet, dive into classic films from before you were born, and discover movies you’ve never seen. Here’s how to put together this fun event!
1. Decide on a Movie
Your movie must be a movie from the past, but how far into the past you dig is totally up to you. You could show a movie from the 40’s or 50’s (Merry Andrew starring Danny Kaye, a film from 1958 is one of my all-time favorites!) or go with something more recent, like a cult classic from the 80s or 90s (The Goonies, anyone?). Once you have a few movies in mind, start to track one down. You might have to visit a library, buy it online, or use a streaming service.
2. Work With Your Theme
Plan a few fun treats for your crew, based around the theme of the movie you’re showing. That might be old-fashioned candy that you haven’t had since you were five, or drinks served in vintage martini glasses.
3. Take Plenty of Pics, and Plan Next Week’s Movie!
Take pics to commemorate the occasion, and start planning next week’s movie! I can’t wait to hear how your first TBT event goes. Leave a comment below to share!
