Popcorn Bar and Outdoor Movie Night

We love watching movies, but nothing beats watching them under the stars!  Now that the weather is warmer, we’ve started one of our favorite family traditions back up.  The Popcorn Bar and Outdoor Movie Night at the Leeson Theater are now back in business.

I’ve always been fascinated with outdoor movies, maybe it’s the memory of my first experience at a drive-in movie one summer as a kid or those hopelessly romantic flicks where they watch movies on a giant screen at the park while laying on a blanket.  Whatever it is, I’m a fan and excited for a new season to start.

You simply can’t have movie night without popcorn and making a serve yourself Popcorn Bar makes it even more fun!  I like to set-up a bar cart or table with a variety of popcorn flavors in the back yard, with a variety of mix-ins and flavorings and let everyone go crazy creating their favorite flavor combinations.  I found these adorable red and white polka dot paper bags in the dollar section at Michael’s, they’re perfect for holding popcorn!

When you come to the Leeson Theater it may be a self-serve concession stand, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have plenty of options.  Put out boxes of movie candy and let everyone pick their favorites.  I also provide small cups so if the kids want to mix and match and share with each other than can.

With all that sticky candy and buttery popcorn little hands are bound to get a little bit messy.  To keep cleanup easy and fewer movie distractions I use disposable Wet-Nap® Antibacterial Hand Wipes.  These wipes are perfect for my self-serve popcorn bar, the kids can help themselves and they are safe on little hands so they can keep on enjoying their movie treats!  I picked up a bunch of these containers at Walmart to have on stock for our popcorn bar and movie nights throughout the season.

I want my kids memories to be about having fun, not spent worrying about being messy, or getting scolded for making a mess. With these handy Wet-Nap® wipes we  don’t have to let the messy moments spoil all the fun!

  1. Adorable! And you’ve just reminded me to add wet naps to my shopping list for a party this weekend…

  2. How fun! We love movie night! An outdoor movie night sounds really fun!

  3. Awesome! It looks like you had a fantastic time!

  4. Wet wipes are such a godsend! I keep them stashed in the car and under all the cabinets, but I love how you brought them out especially for a could-be-sticky party. Our favorite movie this spring? Frozen…but a close second is any one of the Star Wars movies.

  5. What a great movie party idea — the the addition of the wet naps are genius!

  6. Could you plug Wet Naps just a bit more? So disappointing to eagerly happen upon a blog and it soon becomes clear it is just a puff piece for a product placement. You can do better. And to the Wet Naps Execs, now I will purposely select the competitor product.

    • Thanks for your feedback Amy, sorry you felt disappointed in the post. I do work with brands to promote products I use and love and while I share information about those products my hope is that you’ll find inspiration in my ideas, tips, printables and all the other content created to go along with the post as well. :)
