Just wondering what movies people may suggest for a family movie night?
Animation and non-animation suggestions are wanted please =) We don’t mind animated movies but sometimes they just get a bit too much, and we just end up getting sick of them, so we are more-so after non-animated movies…

Also what do you do for Family Movie Nights? Bowls of popcorn, lollies ect… Fruit/vege platter maybe? Camp out in the lounge room?

Just looking at starting a Family Movie Night at least once a fortnight or even once a week, and making it something more special and fun than just sitting on the couch and watching a movie normally =)

  • old lion king!

  • I watched Hidden Figures with my family and we all loved it. A real “feel good” movie.

  • Homeward bound, pippi Longstockings, little rascals, home alone, Andre, airbud, look who’s talking, I love animal ones hehe

  • we love How to Train Your Dragon, my son adores Dr Quinn Medicine Woman series (believe it or not), we also adore Disney films, and there is a movie out called Dinotopia which is absolutely lovely.
    I love snuggling up with my family like that and watching a flick too…

  • Fly away home, homeward bound, born free, free willy (animal lovers here hehe) Shrek, nemo, toy story.

    I love popcorn or chips / biscuits and dip but also some mixed lollies or chocolate for that sweet aspect :-)

  • I highly recommend Oddball, it’s such a great movie. I also try to dig up movies we grew up with as kids: singing in the rain, lassie, Shirley temple, BMX bandits, Mary Poppins, the muppets, babe, freaky friday (not the LiLo version!), the parent trap and fly away home.
    We don’t go overboard on the lollies as I don’t want them to associate watching movies and eating junk food. We tend to make it special by eating a picnic dinner on a rug in the lounge room while watching TV.

  • THE BOOK OF LIFE- Is great but wasn’t raved about and advertised! i like it
    PAPER PLANES was good with real people and it is aussie

  • Oh such amazing ideas =) Thanks!! Love the idea about the library, never thought of that lol even though we go to the library and I think about hiring some… (I usually download lol). But that sounds like a good idea, then the kids can choose a movie each and go from there =)
    Thanks again!!

  • We have watched “Mirror Mirror” lately. Funny! Next one will be “Minions” I guess

  • The latest favourites in this household would be Minions, Inside Out and some of the golden oldies too.

  • We like inside out. Mary Poppins is always fun too

  • We camp out on the lounge room floor, popcorn, chocolate and chips. Torches. Late night. I love The Lion King. An oldie but a goodie and with so many happy family memories for me.

  • Depends on the age of your kids? I would suggest borrowing a selection of kids movies from your local library. A good way of trying lots of different DVD’s and finding out which ones your kids like too. DVD night is often take away night too. Double treat time! :)

  • Minions is a great movie our whole family enjoys, Beauty and the Beast has just been re-released and that’s always good, there’s also a walt disney short film collection thats just come out,

  • At the moment my girls are loving watching Inside out!
