Movie Nights Themes...

We do family movie nights and what works for us is having the kids vote on the movie that they will watch. We started out by doing Retro Cartoon Night (Tom&Jerry, Flintstones, Jetsons, etc.) - it was fun, but did not keep the attention of the kids. When we let them vote on the movie, we get more people coming and then they will sit and watch.

Another thing that works for us is that we raffle off the movie at the end of the evening and someone gets to take it home with them.

I am hoping to be elected as PTO President at my kids school this May along with a few friends. We have been reading on here and trying to learn all we can about the events that work best.

I am really excited about Family Movie night! We live in a rural area and I would love to help encourage family activities at school to help bring familes together.

My question is has anyone done themed FMN's? Like my thinking was Finding Nemo and having everyone wear swim trunks/bathing suits, hanging blue beads at the door to look like water, maybe set up spotlights with blue paper over them, sell small beach balls. Has anyone does this? Do they go over good? what other ideas have you done?

thanks and please share any other hints or ideas that you have!!
