What is great about a movie night is that you can do it any time of year in any style! You can create a theme movie night and watch the classics; or watch horror films back to back and cast your vote for who’s going to be offed; or just focus on films with your favorite leading star! For Oscar night it would be great to enlist a friend to be the butler and serve popcorn, candy and cocktails. Make sure the “butler” wears a black vest and tie to set a more formal Hollywood glamour tone for the night.
