Do you want to throw the best, most amazing, and most epic movie marathon party ever imaginable to mankind? Then don’t be afraid to pull at all the stops and check out these 7 ideas that will surely make the night a blast:

Pick the Right Movie Series

Picking a single movie for a regular movie night can be overwhelming enough. Having to pick an entire movie series for a party is even more so. However, it’s the first and most important thing you have to decide on. You have to consider how many of your friends are actually a fan of the series or may be interested in it. Because remember, just because you enjoy them it doesn’t mean they will too. And there is no bigger downer to a movie night than people falling asleep halfway through the first one.

You also have to consider how much is the total running time of the entire movie series and for how long your friends are willing to stay because no matter how great a party is, it has to end sometime.

To help you figure out what series to watch, here are just some of the most popular choices:

  • Avengers (4 Movies, 10 hours and 27 minutes)
  • Back to the Future (3 Movies, 5 hours and 42 minutes)
  • Harry Potter (7 Movies, 19 hours and 39 minutes)
  • Jurassic Park (3 Movies, 4 Movies, 5 hours and 45 minutes)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean (5 Movies, 12 hours and 33 minutes)
  • Star Wars (6 Movies, 22 hours and 40 minutes)
  • The Lord of the Rings (6 Movies, 11 hours and 22 minutes)

Get a Screen Projector

Despite what others say, size does matter when it comes to a movie night. Not everyone has the budget to get a high resolution flat screen but having your guests struggle to watch a movie on a small screen can put a damper on the entire party. So, if you want to get the full experience of a real movie house by having a cinematic screen, get a screen projector. Small units are affordable and easy to use. Or if you don’t want to buy one, rent it or borrow from a friend.

Have a Costume Party

Don’t just stop at decorating, have your guests participate with a costume party. Indicate on your invitation that attendees must dress up as their favorite characters from the movie. This can be made even more exciting by handing a trophy or award by the end of the night. You may also have an additional challenge to make it more exciting such as dressing up using only recycled materials or food items.

Build a Candy Concessionaire

What do you usually avoid buying at the movies because they’re overpriced? Candies! Spoil your friends with these sweet delights and impress them further by displaying the treats in a creative manner. You can put them in clear jars or you can build your own candy concessionaire using a peg board.

Don’t Forget the Decoration

If you and your guests are fans of the series fandom you’re about to watch, then let the freak flag incredibly high. Display your collections and memorabilia. Or you can create your own fandom customized decorations by printing posters and your favorite lines from the movies.

Set up a Bar

Besides the food, another thing that can keep your guests moving are drinks. Serve several colorful drinks in large clear containers and make them look pretty. You may also look up great alcohol mixes on YouTube for a more adult themed party.
