Outdoor and drive-in movie screenings may seem like things of the past, but have no fear, movie buffs—you can screen your favorite flicks right in your backyard by renting a projector and an inflatable movie screen.
These easy-to-operate setups are perfect for warm nights, allowing you to get your entertainment fix without staying cooped up indoors.
Of course, no movie night is complete without freshly-popped popcorn. If you want to depart from the classic combo of salt and butter, check out these five simple and delicious ways to season your popcorn for an extra-awesome movie night.
1. Italian Breadstick Seasoning
Want to give your snack a robust Italian kick? Mix together dried basil, parsley, grated parmesan, and garlic salt. Coat popcorn with olive oil, then add your seasoning to the bowl and toss. Voila! You’ve got a tasty, Italian-style treat.
Coat popcorn with melted cinnamon chips and powdered sugar to imitate the taste of a churro. Toss these ingredients in with some granulated sugar and raw cinnamon.
Just be careful: you may miss key plot points during repeat trips to refill the bowl.
3. Mac and Cheese-Style Popcorn
This one is easy, especially if you keep your pantry stocked with boxed mac and cheese for the kids. Pop open a box and season your popcorn with a packet of powdered cheese to create a movie treat that the little ones will recognize and love.
4. Movie Munchies with a Kick
Do you and the family crave a spicy, buffalo-style kick? Combine two tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce with butter and melt it together in the microwave. Drizzle and coat the popcorn with this delicious concoction and…well, just keep a supply of napkins by the inflatable movie screen.
Add some parmesan cheese and you have yourself a bowl of buffalo parmesan popcorn.
5. The Healthy Option
For a healthy delicacy, create a mixture of celery salt, marjoram, thyme, garlic powder, and sage. This seasoning creates robust flavor while cutting out guilty add-ons like butter and salt.
