Come up with a theme! Instead of only watching new release movies with the kids take it back to some of your old favorites. Bring back the classics, teach your kids to appreciate where film came from and how it has changed. Go back and start in a film era or genre that you especially like (black and whites, musicals, love stories, etc…). Many kids these days don’t now about how many movies are out there and just stick to new releases. If you make a theme night to watch movies with your kids you make that evening not just a movie night but an event. Go to France and watch Gigi, go back to the 50’s and fall in love with Humphrey Bogart in Sabrina.
Have fun with it!
