A Night At The Movies

I was recently contacted and asked if I wanted to host my own "Night at the Movies*". As a huge film watcher and DVD hoarder this could not have been more up my street. Movie nights in are perfect for spending quality time with friends and family and are a great way for those of us with chronic illnesses to to socialise. Cwtch up on the sofa with a blanket, delicious food, good company and a film. Heaven. 

A night at the movies

I was kindly sent Hotel Transylvania 2* (Review here) for my movie night as well as the most delicious popcorn* ever which I struggled to share and some retro sweets*. Then for extra snacks* (not pictured) we had strawberries & nutella because you obviously need 1 of your 5 a day. Balanced diet and all that. Also a movie night is not complete without chilli heatwave doritos and salsa. We also had cushions everywhere and fluffy blankets for optimal comfort. 

The movie night was a huge hit and I was able to invite my mum, dad and little brother over to my new house to cwtch up on the sofa and spend some quality time together which didn't involve building furniture. We stuffed our faces and had a good laugh. I highly recommend hosting your own movie night.

The Night at the movies campaign was set up to show that generations can stay in contact and socialise. I think it's such a good idea. My brother and I always used to watch movies with my Grandma when she couldn't get out much and they are some of my favourite memories of her.

"Gracewell are a care home provider, and believe that every single one of their residents – and families – have individual needs for both their level of care and for the life they want to live. Movie nights are a regular event at one of their many care homes where Gracewell actively encourage residents’ families to attend."

Gracewell sound like an amazing healthcare provider and their facilities and attitude towards providing personalised care look even better. My nearest community is Bournville but if you think you know someone who would benefit from their facilities you can find the nearest one to you here.

Will you be hosting your own movie night?
