Not sure where to even start with such a party? Well, The Party Place has got you covered there too! Read below to see what you need to get the job done.

First things first: any good Movie Night has to have the best movie imaginable. Poll your kids and their friends to see what they would like to watch, or check this link out on our Pinterest for some good ideas! It might be the newest release, or a favorite classic flick. Either way, make sure that you have the right movie picked out sure to keep the kids fully entertained. Take this night a step further by encouraging your guests to dress up as some of their favorite characters from the movie—and photo ops are must! You can even lay out a red carpet, and take their photos as they walk through the door, just like in Hollywood!

Second, but probably the most important component of any Movie Night is the food. Kids love food, this we know. Pizza is always a great and easy go to option, as well as hot dogs, popcorn, root beer floats, and an ice cream bar! You need recipes for these delectables, you say? Just look below!

Delicious Homemade Pizza

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. MAKES: 6 servings


1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast

1 teaspoon sugar

1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)

1/4 cup canola oil

1 teaspoon salt

3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 pound ground turkey or beef

1 small onion, chopped

1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

3 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 medium green pepper, diced

2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


In large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil and salt. Stir in flour, a cup at a time, until a soft dough forms.

Turn onto floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 2-3 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, cook beef and onion over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.

Punch down dough; divide in half. Press each into a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Combine the tomato sauce, oregano and basil; spread over each crust. Top with beef mixture, green pepper and cheese.

Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Yield: 2 pizzas (3 servings each).

Root Beer Floats by Rachel Ray


1 pint vanilla bean ice cream

2 quarts root beer

Hang a large, well packed scoop of vanilla ice cream on the edge of a fountain glass or other tall drinking glass. Fill the glass 3/4 full with root beer. Set the fountain glass on a salad plate, underlining the glass for overflow. Serve floats with straws and parfait spoons. When you are ready to enjoy the floats, knock the ice cream into the root beer and watch it fizz up as the ice cream floats. Yummy! This is the simplest and my most favorite fountain drink!

Cookies and Cream Popcorn


1 bag kettle corn or regular white popcorn

12 Oreos, crushed finely

6 oz vanilla candy melts


Pop bag of popcorn according to package instructions – listen to your microwave and make sure not to burn the kernels! Remove any unpopped kernels or you’ll end up with some cracked fillings – just give me a call if you forget and need those fixed Mix the popcorn and crushed Oreos together until evenly distributed. Melt candy melts in the microwave in 30 second intervals, mixing well in between until glossy and smooth. Drizzle half of the candy melts over the popcorn and use a rubber spatula to coat evenly. Add the rest of the candy melts and toss mixture gently for about a minute. Spread mixture onto a large sheet of wax paper and allow candy coating to set completely – about 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container.

Ice Cream Bar

Super simple! Just get your favorite ice creams, cones and cups, put some toppings out in bowls and don’t forget the syrup and Redi-Whip! That’s all you need! Some popular toppings are crushed Oreos, M & M’s, crushed Reese’s, gummy worms, sprinkles, cherries, nuts, white chocolate and dark chocolate chips, dried strawberries, cheesecake bites, crushed graham crackers and more!

The Party Place even has cute holders to help you perfectly display your hot dogs. You can even plan your food around the theme of the movie! No matter what the menu is, The Party Place has Movie Night themed plates, table cloths, napkins, appetizer holders, and utensils in every color imaginable to match!

The third thing you need to complete your Movie Night is the decorations! The Party Place not only has anything you need to serve the food, we also have banners, streamers, wall hangers, accessories and more! Look through our Party Supplies section to see everything we offer, and see some of pictures below!

Any of these ideas can be used for birthday parties and adult Movie Nights as well. Just take out kids, insert “grown ups”, and voilà—you now have the perfect and flexible Movie Night sure to please any guest on any occasion!
