Make Friday the best night of the week with my Fall Family Movie Night! Skip cooking and relax with this easy family movie night plan.

It's Friday afternoon. You've had a long week and you're looking ahead to a busy weekend. In Fall, with everyone back to school and lots of great things to do on the weekends, Fridays can be tough. We've turned that around and made Friday our favorite night of the week. How? By turning Friday into Family Movie Night! This is the perfect way for the whole family to unwind after a long week, and I've got everything you need to make it easy and fun!

Planning the Perfect Fall Family Movie Night

Our perfect Fall Family Movie night starts with dinner. By Friday I am in no mood to cook, so I make dinner as easy and convenient as possible. The perfect solution for movie night dinner is the Sam's Club Coke & Pizza Bundle. Since I'm usually at Sam's Club anyway picking up groceries, it is easy to pick up the bundle and take it home. No cooking required and it's always a crowd pleaser in my house.

All I have to do is swing by the Sam's Club Cafe and I can get a 16" pizza, cheesy breadsticks, a 2-liter bottle of Coke, and 6 chocolate chunk cookies - all in one bundle for $13.98. What a seriously good deal and dinner is done!

Yum! This totally beats cooking and is perfect for those Fall Fridays when we are all just ready to relax.

The next step in planning the perfect Fall Family Movie Night is creating a little excitement and atmosphere. I've taken care of that for you with some cute FREE printables!

You can download the Menu & Marquee sign here and the Tickets here.

Once you print out the menu & marquee sign, you can fill out the squares to show everyone what you'll be having for dinner and what the movie of the week will be. It's a really fun way to get everyone excited about movie night! You can also print out the tickets and give them out to help make the night extra special.

Next your perfect movie night needs some comfy seating. I like to pile big pillows and blankets on the floor to make a cozy place to snuggle, especially on chilly Fall evenings. 

Sometimes I think that getting to eat the chocolate chunk cookies that come in the Family Pizza Combo in front of the TV is my boys' favorite part of movie night.

Last, but definitely not least, the perfect Fall Family Movie Night needs the perfect Fall Family Movie. Here are my top 5 picks:

1. Monsters, Inc. This is one of our favorites all year long, but it's perfect for Fall as you get ready for Halloween with some not so scary monster friends.

2. Little Giants. This football themed kid's movie is perfect for a Friday during football season! It's funny and a great movie about brothers and friendship.

3. Pocahontas. Celebrate Fall colors with this Disney movie featuring the Academy Award winning song, "Colors of the Wind."

4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. What better movie for back to school season (and Halloween!) than the first Harry Potter film, where he heads to Hogwart's for the first time.

5. It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown/A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. OK these aren't technically movies but this doubleheader of classic TV specials is perfect to set the mood for Fall holidays.

Now you can just sit back, enjoy your dinner, watch a movie and relax. Happy Friday!
