The love of the big screen and $150 Target gift card giveaway

When I was little, my Pa-Pa had one of those old-fashioned movie cameras where the big bright light would shine in your face the entire time he was filming you. And one of our favorite activities was to get together with our cousins and watch all those old home movies projected on a big screen in my grandparents’ living room. It didn’t matter that there wasn’t any sound or that we were all constantly squinting, thanks to the big camera light, there wasn’t anything better than watching these little pieces of memories. And that’s why I’ve always taken so many videos of Caroline.

There are all these moments that you think you’ll remember forever, but they have a way of slipping away with time and the busy-ness of life. I’ve always thought it’s not quite as much fun to gather around the computer or TV to watch our videos. It lacks the special-occasion feel of the big screen that had a way of making me feel like a movie star when I was little. And I’ve secretly always lamented that Caroline hasn’t had the same experience.

Not that she’s much of a ham or anything.


But all that has changed with the new 3Mô Mobile Projector. It’s a small mobile projector that allows big-screen viewing of your content just about anywhere. It projects onto walls, ceilings, anything you can turn into a big screen. You can watch YouTube videos, slideshow photos, TV content and movies via iTunes.

I can’t wait to use it all summer long for slumber parties and outdoor campouts. The kids can all get in their sleeping bags and I can project a movie right on the side of our house. Or they can make their own home movies and have fun watching themselves. There are so many great uses.The 3M Projector easily connects to your iPhone or iPad or to your PC with an additional cable sold separately. When I got mine in the mail I was able to figure it out without even reading the directions. And if you know me then you know this means that a monkey could do it. It’s super easy.

It’s sold at Target (click here to learn more and find special offers) and, to celebrate the 3M projector, you’ll have a chance to win a $150 gift card to Target. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite way to do family movie night.

    I need one of these. Sweet.

    Melissa says:

    We don’t have family night because my son is not quite two and my husband doesn’t like movies. So I do movie night with air popped pop corn and a chick flick when my son goes to bed and my husband has to work late. It’s a great time to relax and have some “me” time.

  3. 3

    Our babies are still too young to enjoy family movie night with us, but now that we have kids, my husband and I really enjoy getting to watch movies together after we put the babies to bed. It is a nice way to reconnect and relax together after a long day.

  4. 4

    Family night usually includes boardgames and food. We would love to include movies!

  5. 5
    Colleen says:

    We had one last night. Lap top. 21 year old home from college. Introduced her to Downton Abbey. Shared a pair of earbuds. Heaven.

  6. 6

    Popcorn and something sweet must be included in movie night. We take turns choosing our favorites.

  7. 7
    Lindsay says:

    Movie nights include all 4 of us on the couch (this includes the dog) under a blanket usually watching Tangled or Tinkerbell!!! Cookies and milk are a necessity!!

  8. 8

    Family movie night includes good company & good snacks !

  9. 9

    We always make popcorn (on the stove) for family movie night and we must have some sort of candy to go with it.

  10. 10

    Family movie nights always include popcorn! Even when family movie night happens to fall on a Saturday afternoon. Also, lots of blankets and pillows are included!

  11. 11

    Our family movie nights start with arguing over which movie to watch. Then, we have a heated debate about who’s going to sit where. Once all that is decided, my daughter pops popcorn, closes all the blinds and then we settle in for the movie.

  12. 12

    Love family movie night w/popcorn!

  13. 13
    Donna Dear says:

    We love to have fun food for movie night, and our girls love to have their friends over and have make movies.

  14. 14

    Sour Patch Kids for my daughter and Junior Mints for me….the boys watch an action movie in the basement and we watch a romantic comedy upstairs!

  15. 15

    I try to find a special dessert and we all dig in while watching a fun movie together.

  16. 16

    My husband and I like to have movie night on Friday nights after the kids are in bed. It’s nice that the house is quiet and I actually get to sit down!

  17. 17

    I let the kids pick their own snacks and gather up all of their “snugglies”….pillows, stuffed animals, sleeping bags…Then we spread out in the living room and hope that we’ve found a decent movie!

  18. 18

    Our movie nights usualy involve Pixar and lots of junk food!

  19. 19
    Susan in Indiana says:

    We love family movie night! It always includes popcorn and M&Ms. Sometimes REAL Coke!!

    Thanks Big Mama!!

  20. 20

    We do family movie nights about once/week – Friday nights are good bc we’re all usually exhausted from the week and need a night to relax. Popcorn AND M&Ms are essential!

  21. 21
    Kathryn says:

    Popcorn and dollar-store candy are included every time!

  22. 22
    jenny f says:

    Family movie night is myself and my 19 year old daughter.. This takes place when she has come home from college for the weekend. We will each grab a blanket, find our comfy chairs and turn down the lights. Our last movie night we had a mini Julia Roberts marathon.

  23. 23

    Family movie night means popcorn, candy, and usually a lame kids movie. :)

  24. 24

    My daughter and I love to watch movies together, and now my granddaughter gets in on the fun! Would love to win!

  25. 25
    Katherine says:

    I don’t see a sweepstakes prompt on this post, so I’m assuming that we leave our comment here? Our family movie nights usually involve pizza and ice cream, with a movie that has lots of action for the men/boys in the house! When it’s just my daughter and me, we have pita chips and roasted garlic hummus and watch Pride and Prejudice or Downton Abbey!!

  26. 26

    My babies are too little for family movie night right now as well, but I can’t wait till we can have a pizza picnic on the floor and watch movies they way we did when I was growing up!

  27. 27
    Katie Smith says:

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway!!!

  28. 28

    Just popcorn and a Redbox movie. Oh how I wish I could find all those old movies my Papaw took of us when we were kids. I am feeling huge guilt now about not doing more of my own children!

  29. 29
    Cindi in Boston says:

    We love heading to the drive-in, packing some pillows, blankets and snacks and opening the hatch back of our SUV.. it would be much more fun to do it from the comfort of our own backyard and sleeping bags. My 4 year old would love it!

  30. 30
    Vicki B says:

    What a fabulous idea!

  31. 31
    Kristin says:

    Movie Night….watching netflix snuggled on the couch with my hubby after the babies are in bed!!!

  32. 32

    Ahhhh…family movie night. We do them every month or so. Take turns picking out a movie and have big bowls of popcorn and juice boxes. Everyone snuggles on the sofa/chairs/floor. Laughter abounds and someone always falls asleep! Great fun and even better memories.

  33. 33

    Now that I am a NONNY, the favorite way to do family movie night is to keep the five grands, send their parents on a date, and watch movies till bedtime!!!!

  34. 34
    Cindi in Boston says:
  35. 35

    Family movie night always includes popcorn, chocolate milks (for the kids) and, if we’re feeling really crazy, a pizza picnic on a big blanket on the family room floor:)

  36. 36
    Courtney says:

    Popcorn, comfy blanket and we all pile on the couch!

  37. 37

    Love it!

  38. 38
    Sarah N says:

    We will get a movie from RedBox or Amazon Instant video and get Daddy to bring home pizza for dinner. Later on we will pop some popcorn! We all cuddle up on the couch and watch the movie!

  39. 39

    My favorite way to do family movie night is to move the coffee table and pile the floor with pillows and blankets in front of the TV. We call it a ‘pillow party’.

  40. 40

    Buttered popcorn, light the fireplace in the basement and all snuggle up with lots of pillows and blankets. Turn down the lights and then let the movie begin. And my kids always wonder why I fall asleep before the movie is over…

  41. 41
    Stephanie says:

    We have to have popcorn! Other than that, any animated movie will please my four little ones. We also like to lie on the floor with pillows.

  42. 42
    Carrie P says:

    Movie nights in the fall at the lake house with friends, lots of popcorn, hot tea, and Reese’s peanut butter cups are my favorite

  43. 43

    We love to get lots of pillows and pile them on the sofa with us all. Popcorn is a must and the stereo so loud that the windows shake!
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  44. 44

    We always had game night! My son loved to play games he has little ones now and then usually pop some popcorn and watch a cartoon.

  45. 45

    As my family all grows up and moves out on me…except for the hubster–and he just keeps sticking around ;) movie night is a rare thing…but once in a while we will grab a movie and “make” the kids settle down with us on the big old sectional. There may be some eye rolling and scoffing at our choice…but secretly they love it! Almost as much as I love them snuggling down on the couch with us old fogies!!!

  46. 46

    my kids love movie night. since they are so little, we start it at 5 pm with popcorn and (sometimes!) ice cream:)

  47. 47

    A bbq, games and a movie and something fattening thrown in. : ) Sounds like you have some fun sleepovers planned for this summer! Enjoy!

  48. 48
    fuzzytop says:

    This sounds really cool….

    Family movie night – Comfy couches, popcorn, and the dogs and cats even join us! Over the past few months we watched all 5 seasons of Friday Night Lights on Netflix, and loved it!!! We probably would never have watched it except I remember you posting about how much you liked it.

    Have a great day :D


  49. 49

    Movie night usually involves the latest on demand movie, p.j.s, and m kids all snuggily!!!

  50. 50

    Just some yummy food and togetherness for our family movie nights!

  51. 51
    Jill Ann says:

    We have some of those 8mm films with the bright “makes everyone squint” lights…ha, they are great to have. Family movie night — we are just getting started with our 11day old baby!! Would love one of these. THANKS! :)

  52. 52

    Our movie nite, includes myself and my four -year old grandaughter……popcorn and snuggling a must.

  53. 53
    Karen B. says:

    On Friday nights during the winter, movie nights are a must after a busy week! Popcorn is a favorite but if I have time, I’ll make homemade soft pretzels and warm cheese sauce to snack on during our movie. Would love to have a projector to make it a ‘big screen’ movie night!

  54. 54
    Barbara says:

    Since our nest is now empty, we usually like to include neighbors or friends for our “family nights”. Oh, and my husband has been exploring the possibility of outdoor movies – I will tell him to check out this 3M projector.

    How many days left of school for Carolyn?

  55. 55

    Family movie nights are far and few now that the kids are 18, 20, 22, and 23. Popcorn is, and always has, been a must thought. Obscene amounts made by the hubs. Lots of blankets, pillows, and sarcastic comments when the movie isn’t up to par.

  56. 56

    My daughter turns 13 this summer and we are moving to a house with a pool hopefully SOON! Can totally see using this a lot.

  57. 57
    Adrienne says:

    Piled in bed with snacks. Snuggling required!

  58. 58
    Johanna says:

    We hook our laptop to our tv and watch the movies on our tv.

  59. 59

    We have our computer hooked up to the TV so it makes it easy to do movie night (Netflix style!)

  60. 60
    Julie G says:

    We pick up a movie from Redbox and watch it with blankets in our living room.

  61. 61

    We do things through our TV — Netflix, computer, whatever the delivery device, we run it through the TV. We have an age span of 5-11 with our kids, though, so sometimes difficult to find a movie for everyone!

  62. 62

    This would be so much fun…because yes, it’s not quite as much fun gathering around the computer screen. :)

  63. 63

    I have to wait til my daughter is home from college but it always includes Jach Russels on our laps and Pride and Prejudice!,

  64. 64

    That would be so much fun! My kiddos always like watching themselves on video…it’s easy entertainment.

  65. 65

    We love to relax with a good movie after a long week. Nothing fancy- usually just a rented DVD while lounging on the couch!

  66. 66

    How fun! I keep thinking that our backyard would be perfect for a neighborhood movie night, but we don’t have the projector. This one sounds great.

  67. 67
    Holly M. says:

    We had tons of old 8mm movies and would love to sit around and watch them when we were younger. I had them all coverted to VHS and now I guess I should have them converted to DVD. Every year on his borthday, my son wants to watch his “baby” movies. Family night now consists of the three of us piling into the den, turning the lights down, and either renting something or catching up on our DVR shows.

  68. 68

    Give the grandkids a bath, make a giant nest of pillows and blankets, build a fire, eat popcorn in official popcorn bowls, and hopefully fall asleep!

  69. 69
    Michele says:

    We can’t wait to do family movie night when our son gets a little older. I imagine pop corn, candy, blankets and pillows and maybe even soda. At this point he doesn’t even know what that is and i’m okay keeping it that way for awhile! :)

  70. 70

    What a cool product!!! We love to make some dessert and curl up on the couch for a good movie. I’ve always wanted to do an outdoor movie. This would be so cool!

  71. 71

    family movie night = sitting on the couch with my husband (after toddler is in bed and newborn falls asleep in one of our arms) watching a DVD on our dinky laptop

  72. 72
  73. 73

    Family movie night is the best – we find our spots in the family room, turn off the lights and turn on the movie. We’d love to watch home movies…the kids love seeing themselves as babies.

  74. 74

    My son is old enough to live on his own so when he does come home for a visit we watch a movie with a lot of action and share some homemade beer. When it is just my husband and I we usually go for something from the Library. They have great free movies!

  75. 75

    My favorite way to enjoy movie night is with me upstairs and my family downstairs watching a movie in the basement! :) I’m not a big movie watcher and they all are, so it’s a win win for all of us. A break for me, a movie for them!

  76. 76

    Our movie night is usually everyone with their pillows and blankets on the den floor with pizza and popcorn. We love movie night.

  77. 77

    We do most family movie nights piled up in our master king size bed. Oh the crumbs I sleep in on those night.

  78. 78
    Kim Johnson says:

    Family movie night consists of good food, usually ice cream and lots of pillows and blankets. Love good movies!


  79. 79

    The girls sit in their bean bags and we make popcorn and usually end up all falling asleep!

  80. 80
    Christina Sumler says:

    My two girls love when we all sit in the living room and watch a movie together. My favorite time of year is when it is cold outside, there’s a fire in the fireplace and we’re all enjoying a movie together! My girls’ snack of choice is popcorn with M&Ms!

  81. 81
    Debra Lewis says:

    Family movie night at our house starts when we move the sofa out of the way in the living room, blow up an air mattress, cover it up with comforters and all of us (my 2 teenage sons, my husband and myself) lie down and cuddle up to watch the show. Add in some popcorn, snow caps and sodas and we are set for the night. Love us some family movie nights!

  82. 82

    The old-fashioned way: with popcorn in the living room. But I’d love the projector thingy anyway!

  83. 83

    Awesome giveaway! This is a really sweet product. We pop our own popcorn on the stove and pile on the blankets. :)

  84. 84

    I WANT ONE! :)

  85. 85

    Family movie night usually coincides with junk food night at our house. It starts with a trip to the store where everyone gets to pick out ONE junk food. Then back at home we spread out a picnic blanket on the floor, set up 2 small beach chairs for the kids with a cooler in the middle that they can use as a “table”. We spread our junk food out and everyone gets a little bit of everything complete with popcorn and a Sonic drink :) I know it is something my kids will remember forever and take with them to their own families when that happens!

  86. 86

    We usually have movie night on Friday nights. The kiddos stay up a little late and hubby makes us yummy popcorn.

  87. 87

    The kids have moved out, but when they come home we always have popcorn, M&Ms, and soda, along with lots of pillows & blankets to go with the movie. Always fun – and now I miss my girls!

  88. 88

    p.s. I did indeed tweet about your giveaway here:!/renefarm/status/204550347782500352

    Have a great day Melanie :)

    Lindsey says:

    Movie night always involves popcorn with M&Ms. You just can’t go wrong there.

  91. 91

    Family movie night includes popcorn and root beer with lots of bodies cuddled on a blanket in the living room!

  92. 92

    We like to get in jammies, pop some popcorn and settle in, hubby in the comfortable chair, me on the couch.

  93. 93
    Whitney says:

    Family movie night means popcorn, blankets on the floor, and lots of cuddles!

    Elizabeth says:

    Family movie night in the media room but I sure would love to move it to the backyard with one of these!

  95. 95

    Well, my baby is too small (1 yr.) for a family movie night. But occassionally my husband and I will rent one and have a movie night after she goes to bed! We always have snacks of some sort (isn’t that the point?), and usually watch a comedy.

  96. 96

    Popcorn, blankets, and snuggles!

  97. 97

    We will order a pizza and let our daughter pick a Disney movie on movie nights! We love it!

  98. 98
    Cassie Sue says:

    We’ve talked about getting something like that for a long time.

    When we do family night we just call curl up on the couch and watch movies, lots of fun!

  99. 99

    We like to sit on the couch and then fall asleep half-way through. We’re rebels like that…

  100. 100
    Rhonda V says:

    We love watching movies on my husband’s work projector – this would be even better!

  101. 101

    Our kids are 10 & 12, so family movie night is now FUN for us–with very few animated movies anymore! Every Friday we make/order pizza and watch tv or movies together. It’s pretty mandatory w/ exceptions only for Boy Scout campouts, etc. I LOVE our Family Night & hope we can continue it into their teens!

  102. 102
    MNStacey says:

    We all love to gather around the TV and watch movies together with a big bowl of popcorn. We have been watching all the good old movies from our youth, and enjoying them through our kids’ eyes.

  103. 103
    Emmilee says:

    We do family movie night on the couch with snacks, snuggled up with a blanket and my four-year-old son. We’ve watched his favorites dozens of times, so sometimes I like to switch things up and play home-video clips we’ve taken over the years. It’s great fun to see him recognize himself at younger stages of his life.

  104. 104

    We make pizza then eat in the living room floor in front of the tv. Kids love it!

  105. 105
    Jenna P says:

    Love it! Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

  106. 106
    Heather W says:

    Movie night usually is a Red Box movie and dinner at home. The movie theaters are so expensive!!

  107. 107
    Kelly Sites says:

    We LOVE family movie night. We make popcorn, get out the licorice (you have to eat them together- so it tastes like a popcorn ball) and cram on the couch in our family room.

  108. 108

    I need one please.

  109. 109

    We have four kids.. They get their sleeping bags and pillows in the playroom, and we have popcorn, of course! Need a movie night soon!

  110. 110

    We like to go out to the movies

  111. 111
    Sherrer says:

    My boys are 17 and 14, so we usually find a sports movie or comedy on Netflix

    Strawberryrose says:

    We have movie night every Friday. We watch a movie and have a picnic on the floor.

  113. 113

    Our kids are still too young to really enjoy “family” movie night. Our movie nights are usually after the kids go to bed.

  114. 114
    Stephanie says:

    We grill out and have a picnic on the floor in front of the tv and watch whatever we can all agree on.

  115. 115

    I LOVE family movie night. It is our little bit of consistency and togetherness. Our baby is still too young to understand, but one day he will love it as much as we do. I am sure he won’t tire of watching so many of his recorded firsts!

  116. 116

    The most important thing about family movie nights are the snacks. Definitely the snacks. My kids love a good movie night. Ours are all about pj’s and blankets and cuddles. Super-fun.


  117. 117
    Sallie Baker says:

    I’m way older than you, but Yes…..nothing better than watching old family movies!
    And yes, we were all squinting because of the bright lights….my little sister would always
    hold her eyes open with her fingers. We put them all on VHS one year….( like 20 years ago…) and now that is almost obsolete! Guess we better go digital!!

  118. 118

    Family movie night (which doesn’t happen often because my sensitive kids still get scared at most movies) involves popping pop corn, spreading a sheet on the floor and letting them go to town! :) They suddenly are into “slug-bugs” so I’m thinking we need to get The Love Bug from the library and do that this weekend for movie night.

  119. 119

    Friday evenings are Family Movie Nights around our house. Our kids are 8 and 10- I know it won’t be long before they’d rather hang out with their friends, so we’re enjoying it while we can! We used to watch a kids movie, and still do on occasion- but the real winner around here is Swamp People these days :)

  120. 120
    Kristen says:

    We like to do movie night with a movie that is appropriate for everyone in the family along with popcorn and candy or ice cream.

    Jennifer in Ohio says:

    Snuggled on the couch eating cheesy puffs and watching one of the handful of animated films in constant rotation in our house.

  122. 122

    I love the impromptu movie nights when we happen upon one of our favorite movies on TV. It’s usually Remember the Titans. :)

  123. 123
    Tiffany P. says:

    Family Movie Night at our house involves lots of popcorn and sodas!

  124. 124

    Everyone is piled up on couches and chairs while we eat popcorn and watch them on our television. However, if I win the projector, I envision everyone in the bed of the pickup watching them on the side of the house!

  125. 125

    Movie Night is the best! Popcorn and M&Ms – yah! Thanks for great giveaway.

  126. 126

    This would be such a blessing for me and my treasures. Love it!

  127. 127

    Friday night is movie night with kettle popcorn!

  128. 128

    We have an outdoor screen & we love to do our movie nights outside when the weather cooperates :)

  129. 129

    We tend to have family movie afternoons when it’s raining and I just can’t craft anymore. The kids take turns choosing the movie, my husband makes popcorn on the stovetop, and I round up the snuggliest blankets so we can all pile on the couch and enjoy some high quality cuddle time.

  130. 130
    Mary M. says:

    Almost every Friday and Saturday night is movie night for my husband. We put our 3 yr. old to bed at 8 and pop the movie in right after. Nice was to spend the night when your trapped in your house

  131. 131
    Debra D. says:

    My favorite movie night is always at Christmas time, with the whole family watching “A Christmas Story”. One of our local stations shows it on a loop over and over all day on Christmas Eve. Even though our kids are grown, we always go to church for Christmas Eve service, then to dinner, then home to watch this movie together.

  132. 132

    we usually “redbox” it and have popcorn and chocolate! My kids LOVE to watch old home movies of when they were little (now 8, 11 & 13)….how soon we forget all those childhood memories!

  133. 133

    My daughter and I like to get movie candy from the grocery store, pop up some popcorn and veg out (her in the floor and me in the recliner) in front of our TV. Sometimes we even do a movie day instead of a night!

  134. 134
    Upside Brown says:

    movie night consists of SB, me & Lily – our Labrador Retriever. We all three love to pile up on the sofa tangled up in legs and paws. Would LOVE this for outside with our new patio and outdoor fireplace! Great opportunity to have all the neighbors and their kids over for a patio party and movie night!

  135. 135
    Connie Heggie says:

    Popcorn and pop in a movie…Nothing better than watching it snuggled up in our king size bed! ! !

  136. 136

    Sweet! Would make a fun summer activity for our Summer STAY-CATION!! :)

  137. 137

    Would be fun with the girls at the lake.

    On couch/loveseat covered w/ soft blankets. Usually a chick flick w/ my girls. Snacks & drinks, but now that college age, a glass or two of wine is enjoyed. If only youngest daughter is home then it is Gilmore Girls – a favorite.

  139. 139

    Just had a movie night with my parents and little sister last night! It usually includes pizza, brownies and some completely ridiculous movie! And it’s simply glorious!

  140. 140

    Right now my kids are 3 and 2 so family movie night usually involves Barbie/Princesses which means I sit with the kiddos reading a book while they watch the movie :)

    What fun we could have this summer!!

  142. 142

    I would love to win the gift card and buy the projector. My oldest is going into high school (eekkkk!) and we are always looking for ways to keep the her and her friends entertained at our house. Movie nights under the stars would be perfect!!

  143. 143

    We spread a blanket out, turn out all the lights and pop popcorn. If anyone happens to fall asleep, we leave em there til morning (movie nights are Fridays)!! LOVE movie nights!!!!

    Heather says:

    This would be awesome fun!!!

  145. 145

    My husband and I just had a baby a few months ago so the number 1 goal for movie night is to get the baby to bed!! After that, we get our beverages and 2 bowls of frozen peaches (random, yes, I know. That tradition started with a Sopranos marathon pre pregnancy) and watch a movie in our pjs with our feet on the coffee table. Those are my favorite nights!

    Louise in NE OK says:

    Count me in on wanting this electronic gadget! Love it!

  147. 147

    My four year old loves to watch movies! She asks for popcorn, sprite and cuddle time with Mommy. Works for me! My son is not yet one so it’s best if he is asleep and the hubs usually falls asleep on the couch. There’s only so much Tangled he can take!

  148. 148
    Krista D says:

    Snuggled on the couch with my sweetie is the best way to do Movie night!! I have an almost empty nest, so we are the only two watching movies together these days.

  149. 149

    We cuddle together in our chairs, enjoying root beer floats and old fashioned stove top popcorn with butter and salt. Yum!

  150. 150
  151. 151

    Usually just a movie and popcorn with the kids spread out all over the floor. However, during summer we sometimes invite friends and neighbors, project a movie onto a sheet in our backyard, and watch a movie while floating in the pool.

  152. 152
    Tiffany Y says:

    I love family movie nights. We did this a lot when I was a kid. Action, comedy, drama, I love them all. Dad would stay up late with us kids, Mom would only last about the first 30 mins, then call it a night. Can’t wait to carry on the tradition when we have kids, but I will definitely last longer then the pre-views.

  153. 153
    Katie Butler says:

    Family movie night with a projector would be awesome!

  154. 154

    With lots of snacks! Dips, ice cream, chips- all are welcome

  155. 155
    Tammy Elrod says:

    In the den, lights out, popcorn popped.

  156. 156

    Curled up on the couch with my hubby after we put the baby to bed. I call it a success if I can stay awake through an entire movie. :)

  157. 157
    AmandaK says:

    I dont’ take as many videos as I want to – but I love watching them back, brings it all back to me! Would love to win one!

    Snuggled together on the couch with a warm blanket while we eat popcorn.

  159. 159

    With the husband cuddledclose and a big bowl of homemade popcorn!

  160. 160

    We have a family movie night from time to time. It always involves popcorn. After reading most of the comments, we are now going to have to start having a family movie night EVERY Friday night.
    Would LOVE to win the gift card! Then I could save up the rest of the money for the projector. That would be so great!

  161. 161

    The kids get to take turns picking out the movie. I get cuddle time with my daughter and my husband cuddles with his son.

  162. 162

    Our movie night is usually pizza, a movie and either popcorn or sundes after pizza. We love snuggling up on the couch with our daughter and picking a movie to watch together.

    Family movie night is the best! Snuggled up on the couch with buttery popcorn & blankets!

  164. 164

    Family movie night is something I’ve been looking forward to since my little man was a baby. He turned three in March, and we’ve slowly been introducing him to movies. I’m still very picky about what he watches. Last night he was introducted to Lady and the Tramp, and it was so fun seeing him watch and put the story line together, and then telling me about what he was seeing. I look forward to more popcorn and movie nights on the weekends. Hopefully we can make a tradition of it.

  165. 165

    My daughter and I pop a bowl of popcorn and love to watch chick flicks.

    Melissa H says:

    Growing up we too would gather at my grandparents and in the formal living room (so just being in the room was special) and watch old family movies. It was such a big deal when we could convince my grandmother to get out all the equipment so I really treasure those memories–especially since watching the movies got harder to watch as we lost loved ones that starred in the movies :( Now, family night at my house is just my husband and I and the kiddos cuddled up on the couch. Sometimes we have popcorn, sometimes just being together is enough. But how I would give anything to be a kid again and watch our home family movies!!

  168. 168

    Dinner and a movie at the theater once per month. Magic on the big screen.

  169. 169

    Family movie night is one of our favorite things.
    Pillows, blankets and lots of popcorn!

  170. 170

    Chocolate chip cookies & popcorn, snuggling on the couch, all the lights off.

  171. 171
    Erin Seaman says:

    I have been thinking about having a neighborhood movie night and this would be perfect! need one of these!!!

  172. 172

    We love to spread out a picnic blanket in the living room and fill it up with yummy snacks or a fun dinner. And then, when the eating is done, everyone piles up in the chairs and on the couch and snuggles up under blankets to enjoy the rest of the show. We love family movie night!

  173. 173

    I love to make stove-top popcorn (as in, putting oil in a pan, and cooking popcorn kernals.) and then the kids all snuggle up on the couch and mike and I in our chairs and watch movies on the big screen tv with surround sound.

  174. 174
    Shatcher says:

    Always popcorn and usually arguing about which movie to watch. Making memories!

  175. 175

    We used to watch our 8mm movies on a sheet on the wall! HA!
    Now we queue up Netflix and order pizza. YUM!

  176. 176

    My husband and I like movie night with popcorn, which pleases the cat, who also likes popcorn.

  177. 177
    Valerie says:

    It’s funny…my mom was born in the 50’s but she has her entire childhood (up until 20 or so) documented on film and in too many pictures to sift through. Me? I have one, lone video of my childhood (my kindergarten birthday party that my mom actually hired someone to come and tape) and 2-3 picture albums. How is that for ironic? My favorite way to celebrate movie night is for everyone to curl up on the couch together. Right now that consists of me, my husband, our 70 pd. lab, and our cat. Cozy. And usually lasts about 20 minutes!

  178. 178

    Friday nights, in the master bedroom, all of us piled in bed together…Mama usually fallin’ asleep!

  179. 179

    Everyone must be huddled close together eating popcorn. You are so right. Watching movies on the projector was the best.

  180. 180

    Movies tend to be watching a DVD on the computer while trying to keep the baby from pounding the keys and asking for Pooh videos. She does like watching her own videos, though, and she kisses herself on the screen when they come on.

  181. 181

    Family fun night consists of LOTS of popcorn, lots of pizza and lots of laughter, but on a very small screen. :)

  182. 182
    Melissa O says:

    Favorite movie night is an outdoor drive in night. We have a big screen and enjoy the summer!

  183. 183

    Lots of popcorn….nothing else matters! :)

    Christa says:

    This looks so awesome! My husband is one of eight kids and we have 3 nieces and nephews graduating this year so always lots to film. We loved watching the old fashioned movies growing up. Pillows, popcorn and funny films make for a fun evening. We had the good old bean bags growing up! Thanks for the giveaway.

  185. 185
    Amy in PA says:

    Curled up on the couch together with microwave popcorn & refreshing beverages!!

  186. 186

    I would love to give this projector to my grandchildren – they would LOVE it!

  187. 187

    We actually love throwing a white cloth up over the garage, getting a projector, popping some corn, and inviting the neighborhood over for a movie under the stars. Everyone brings their lawn chairs and some folks bring brownies/treats, and it makes for a fun, family-friendly night that brings the neighbors together. Such fun!

  188. 188

    Our favorite way to do movie night is let the kids pick a dvd, order pizza, lay around on the floor picnic style, then have popcorn and parmesan cheese towards the end of the movie. I think we’ll plan one this week! :) That projector looks awesome!

  189. 189

    we all gather in the family room with wings and popcorn

  190. 190

    My daughter has a huge L-shaped sofa that holds the whole family. We pile on and enjoy a movie with plenty of popcorn and ice cream. The grandchildren are growing up too fast, so I treasure these times together.

  191. 191

    Oh, I love home movies. Most of ours include recordings of old family vacations, holidays, and birthday parties from when my brother and I were little. One of my favorite things is getting to remember relatives who aren’t with us anymore.

  192. 192

    We love to have family movie night. We make a big tub of popcorn and gather all the blankets we can find and we sit on the floor in the livingroom and prop ourselves up against the couch and then we breakout the camcorder and all of the old tapes and watch until the kids either fall alseep or someone spills their drink on the blankets. It’s the best time!

  193. 193

    we love to sit outside by the fire pit and roast marshmellows with the neighbors!

  194. 194

    Movie night includes the “good” popcorn, which means no microwave popcorn and of course some type of sweets and then the movie is usually cars 2 or old school transformers since I have a 5 year old boy!

  195. 195

    Movie nights are pretty much done solo. Nobody else likes my kind of movies. Which is OK by me. I’d rather watch alone that have to tolerate all the sarcastic comments from the peanut gallery.

  196. 196

    Snuggled under the afghan my mom crocheted for me with a movie borrowed from the library!

  197. 197

  199. 199

    We have family movie night every weekend. We eat first, then watch the movie, while eating popcorn and chocolate milk. Thanks for the chance to win!

  200. 200

    I saw that on Ellen – it looks so cool! My favorite movie night thus far has been when we watched the Princess Bride. It was the best feeling ever to have our girls laughing hysterically at the movie we’ve loved forever. I also like to take my girls to the second run theatre in town – it’s the kind where they have counters in the theatre and you can order food. We went to see Tangled there, and it was so fun for them (alright, AND ME).

  201. 201

    When the boys were younger and lived at home, we would have family night where we would order pizza and play board games. And by the end of the night, the mantra became “beat daddy”!!! He ALWAYS won!! But it was lots of fun!

  202. 202
    Brittney says:

    I loved watching my dad’s home movies from when he was a kid. My grandmother passed when I was very young and never knew her but those old home movies have made me realize just how much she and I favor in looks and mannerisms.

  203. 203

    Always a big tub of popcorn and some family friendly movie. Always.

  204. 204

    My favorite movie night involves lots of good snacks, pillows, blankets, and PJ’s!!! Choking on Peanut M&M’s may or not be involved as well!!

  205. 205

    In my PJ’s at my sister’s house. Relaxed on her couch is the best way to view a movie and then we just get up and go to bed when it is done. Of course the movie theater popcorn is missing, but that is ok.

  206. 206

    We LOVE movie nights at our house – they usually involve pizza, popcorn and cookies. We each have a blanket and find a comfy spot on the couch or the floor. Great times with my family!!

  207. 207

    Blankets piled on the floor with popcorn and M&M’s!!

  208. 208

    movie night at our house consists of me, my hubby, and roxie, our sweet dog. we usually rent a non-new release (our local video store does 5 movies for $5 for a week for older movies). we cook dinner and eat while we watch our movie and snuggle on the couch. popcorn and ice cream usually follow. movie night is mostly an excuse to eat junk food and snuggle up with my man!

  209. 209
    Susan B says:

    Family movie night always includes pizza and many times fresh-baked cookies or other favorites snacks! We love movie nights, but as the boys have gotten older, it’s hard to find a great movie without the garbage…so that’s our big search, for honest-to-goodness great family movies (that aren’t garbage-y & not too cheesy)…sometimes we go back to the classics. I soooo love the together time!

  210. 210
    Karen L. says:

    Family movie night includes 3 of us on the couch and my Scotty dogs too! Popcorn and M&M’s, can’t forget the Diet Coke. No diet here!

  211. 211
    Lisa G in TN says:

    We are old school … buttered popcorn, red vines and flat screen TV. Usually a movie from RedBox.

  212. 212

    family movie night is family, popcorn, movie candy that changes with who gets to pick it out, and pjs for everyone. We could have so much fun with this thing!

  213. 213

    Friday nights are usually pizza & movie night. It can be difficult to find a family-friendly movie that we all enjoy, though. As far as watching home movies, we do it randomly. I love taking videos of the kiddos. My husband does lament about the storage space, but he’s glad I do it. ;-D

  214. 214

    We have have popcorn, M&Ms and junior mints for movie night and all of us piled on the couch.

  215. 215
    Sarah M says:

    We do movie night at the house with blankets on the living room floor, with popcorn and chocolate!! Can not forget that!!

    During the summer we like to lay blankets down outside and look up at the stars and tell stories. It would be so awesome to have a projector like that!

  216. 216

    We don’t really do family movie night but with one of these maybe we could start since I bet it would get a ton of use taping our granddaughter who is just about walking. This would be so cool!

  217. 217

    Pizza, popcorn and a movie! Doesn’t get much better than that!

  218. 218
    Jennifer in SC says:

    My mama would love this projector to show movies of the grandkids!

    Our family movie nights usually involve pillows and sleeping bags on the floor, lots of popcorn (which also winds up on the floor) and a pizza or two (odds are 50-50 it’ll wind up on the floor, too). The boys still like slapstick comedy – they’ll buy the new 3 Stooges movie as soon as it’s released to DVD.

  219. 219
    Janet Smith says:

    I love ordering a Cassano’s or Marion’s pizza (Dayton, OH favorites) and popping in a Pixar movie with my husband and two girls

  220. 220

    My hubby and I are waiting for the call to go to Russia to pick up our kid(s) out of an orphanage. This cool littke camera would come in handy :) Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  221. 221
    Megan Joy says:

    It’s just me and my husband, no kids yet, so our favorite way to do movie night is head to the theater! Popcorn is always necessary.

  222. 222

    love all of us crashing on the couch and my husband and i trying to stay awake!

  223. 223

    Movie night for us means picking a favorite Walt Disney movie … which is quite funny since my boys are 22 and 19. We can still sing all the songs!

  224. 224

    Well, it’s just me and my husband right now, so I’m happy just hanging with him, watching a movie and maybe even popping some popcorn!

  225. 225
    Tammy McCullough says:

    Oh my! This would be so much fun to use with our Grandchildren! :-)

  226. 226

    Basically we just watch back our home movies on the dvd camcorder. Occasionally we bust out the videos at a birthday party.

  227. 227
    Shana Harder says:

    We’ve done movie night with a projector on the back of our house in the Summer! So fun with good friends and delicious eats!!

    Popcorn and Faygo Red Pop Floats while watching the Waltons!! hahaha fun memories

  229. 229

    No family nights here yet, because our little bub goes to bed at 6:30. :~) But my husband and I like to curl up on the couch together and watch a movie once a week.

  230. 230

    It’s fun to invite another couple over and watch a good movie with popcorn. My husband in not a movie goer, so we watch at home. We’re empty nesters now, so it’s usually the two of us.

  231. 231
    Jessica says:

    We either pile blankets and pillows all over and pig out, or my husband brings home a projector and screen from school (he teaches 3rd grade) and we hook it up to the computer and project it on the screen in the backyard. It’s kind of a pain, so we don’t do it often. Such a blast, though!

  232. 232

    Curled up in our recliners with yummy food and my knitting. :)

  233. 233
  234. 234

    popcorn and netflix!

  235. 235
    Eleanor says:

    Redbox and take out, the perfect evening!

  236. 236

    Movie night at our house usually involves Redbox and juicebox(es).
    We really like to live it up.

  237. 237

    We do movie night once a week. We take turns picking a game to play, a snack to munch, and a movie to watch. So fun!

  238. 238
    Carrie Hollon says:

    We usually let the girls pick something new off of Netflix and settle in with either their candy of choice or some popcorn. They especially love to pile up in Mommy and Daddy’s bed for movie night. They call it Family Cuddle Night!

  239. 239

    This would be so awesome and I would love to win.

  240. 240

    My favorite way to have movie night is when we get a big blanket and some popcorn and sit on the floor instead of the couches to watch a movie.

  241. 241
    Kelly C says:

    We like to all pile on the couch in our living room and watch a movie together….and of course there is always popcorn and then I cook (toll house break apart) warm choc. chip cookies! My husband has to have the sound up so loud our house vibrates! Haha! We love movies!

  242. 242

    My children are older now, so movie nights are more spontaneous than planned, but still one of my favorite ways to spend time with my family.

  243. 243

    Our favorite way to spend time as a family is by having a movie/popcorn night. Each child gets a turn to choose what movie they want to watch. Thanks for the chance to win :)

  244. 244

    My favorite way to do movie night is how I remember movie night as a kid. My dad used to move our TV outside on the porch. We would wait for the sun to go down and then wrap ourselves in blankets and sit on lawn chairs outside to watch our movie. And of course, no movie night is complete without my dad’s homemade peppered popcorn. No microwave allowed.

  245. 245
    Sara B. says:

    We don’t have movie nights every weekend but we try to do them as often as possible! We snuggle on the couches and try to find a family friendly movie on Netflix.

  246. 246

    My son is 3 years old, so we are just now getting into the family movie night. Lately we’ve been gathering around our laptop and watching youtube videos about DisneyWorld because we are planning a vacation there soon. Would love one of these so we won’t have to fight over who holds the laptop anymore. :)

  247. 247
    Tonya Henry says:

    Our movie night usually consists of eating Nacho’s while we view OR Sundaes. Whichever we are in the mood for. We are a moving LOVING family, so we do this very often!! :)

  248. 248

    We usually just rent a movie from Redbox, turn off all the lights, and snuggle together to watch the movie!!

    Tiffany says:

    We love movie night. We all grab “our spots” on the couch, curl up with HUGE bowls of popcorn, curtains drawn and watch the movie of our choosing. I doesn’t get much better.

  251. 251

    Movie night usually starts early so I can stay awake. It includes popcorn and cuddling on the couch!

  252. 252

    I’m not particular about which kind of movies we watch, but I do enjoy the old black and whites the best. Since it’s just the my husband and me (and our dog), we usually make some coffee and have whatever dessert we have around the house. With a little luck, we’ll make it through the whole film without falling asleep!

  253. 253

    I loved watching our home movies on the wall when I was a kid now. These days my favorite family movie night is at the theater.

  254. 254

    My kids are still too little to really appreciate movie night, but my husband and I enjoy Netflix or Hulu quite a bit after the kids are in bed… tonight’s feature is season 2, disc 1 of Downton Abbey!! Woo hoo!!! But I recently took a video of my oldest daughter’s first dance recital and we had to crowd around my laptop to view.. not as exciting as seeing it on the big screen. What a great product!!

  255. 255

    Movie night now is when our young adult children come home for a visit and they catch us up on what we have missed.

  256. 256
    Merri Jo says:

    We (4 generations) still watch our family movies on slides (horror!) and VHS, so clearly we need to move our viewing up a few(or several) decades! This little gizmo is awesome!

  257. 257

    Love the hot popcorn on movie night! Now, it’s just me and the hubs…..I usually talk him into a chick flick & he humors me by acting as if he enjoys it!

  258. 258

    Family movie night: all piled up on couch, popcorn and coke abound. Would love to be able to show the movie on the wall in a giant life sized fashion:)

  259. 259
    Michelle says:

    Movie nights are few are far between with sports activities taking over, but we do manage to squeeze a few in and make sure it’s a time of relaxation and something chocolate to eat!

  261. 261
    Melissa says:

    Best way? Pizza and popcorn.

  262. 262

    I love for all of us to squeeze on the couch with tons of junk food and watch something that gives a good belly laugh! But it’d be so fun to do outside! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  263. 263

    That is so neat! (And wow, I just said neat – that must mean I really like it?)

    Supper of some sort, finally decide on a movie and then usually warm brownies and ice cream!

  268. 268
    Katrina R says:

    Try to make it every Friday night, pizza and a Redbox rental!

  269. 269

    Buttery Buttery popcorn, chocolate, drinks and family. That makes a great movie night.

  270. 270

    Movie night = popcorn, Sour Patch Kids, pillows & blankets. :)

  271. 271

    This sounds like it would be SO much fun for summer!

  272. 272

    We turn the lights out and the sound bar up!! Popcorn, blankets and a sectional couch make for a great movie night.

  273. 273

    we love family movie nights!!! they include either pizza or sausage/cheese/crackers!

  274. 274

    Love to do family night on the couch or living room floor with comfy jammies, lots of blankets, pillows, and of course, yummy snack food. Would love to have the 3M projector to make our own “drive in”!

  275. 275

    Hi! Our family movie night consist of a great family movie, popcorn & ice-cream. Our children are growing up way too fast but they are always excited to have this time together as a family! Our oldest will be 17 in July.

  276. 276
    Margaret says:

    My grands are coming for weeks at a time this summer. might be just the thing.

  277. 277

    Our favorite family night is good old fashioned TV dinners and a movie. Last week, we watched “We Bought a Zoo,” and I cried my eyes out. If we aren’t doing dinner, my husband will make popcorn on the stove with salt and olive oil. So delicious!! Thanks!

  278. 278

    What a great giveaway. Thanks!

  279. 279

    We love home movie night with popcorn and icecream!!!

    oooohh I would love one of these!! My only grandchild lives far away with my son and daughter in law…I would love to project the videos they send us on the wall so my husband and I can enjoy them bigger than life!!! Thank you and have a great day!

  281. 281

    My dad ….. God rest his soul , paid to have all of our Super 8
    Movies transfered to DVD….. These are so much fun to watch with our
    grandchildren ….. Most of the films were taken 60 years ago!!

  282. 282

    Now that the kids are getting a little bigger, we usually end up doing puzzles together or all jumping on the trampoline. I think they would have so much fun watching a movie on the side of the house while laying in a tent though!

  283. 283

    Oh my, this would be SO FUN! My neighbor and I were trying to think of ways we could have a neighborhood movie night, and this would be perfect!! We do movie nights on Fridays with popcorn and soda. We even turn the couches around so we can pretend we are the the movie theater!

    Kourtney says:

    No kids, but my roommates and I have movie nights with pizza and popcorn every month or so. Right now we are working through Alfred Hitchcock movies!

  285. 285

    We love to cuddle up on the couch with blankets and the cats. And we end up pausing it quite a bit to take potty breaks, etc.

  286. 286

    family night right now can be during the week or a weekend night and it generally involves me and hubby relaxing together, eating a good dinner, and catching up on shows. I’m sure its about to drastically change as we have baby #1 on the way due August!

  287. 287
    Pattie S says:

    Everyone picks out their favorite spot to sit. We order out for Pizza and relax and enjoy a movie of our choice.

    We eat popcorn, cuddle under blankets and watch movies on the couch.

    Jamie Brooksher says:

    I love me some Target gift cards!

    At our house we order pizza and eat in the living room with paper plates. We put the pizza on the coffee table. It is a special treat to eat in front of the tv, so the kids are thrilled. The hard part is finding a movie we can all agree on!

  290. 290

    When we have time, we go all out. For the last few Harry Potter movies, the girls transformed our house into Hogwarts and made butterbeer. For the last one, we also made cupcakes decorated like owls and I wore my old graduation robe! So much fun!!!

  291. 291

    um, seriously? those are the best memories. the 8M set up in the back of the room, and the giant screen opened. we also watched old negatives that way! :)

    for family movie night, we snuggle up with popcorn, peanut m&ms and a cushy blankie!

  292. 292

    SOLD. I recently bought a keyboard and some type of receiver (so high tech) for my tv that lets me get onto the internet and watch YouTube, read your blog, rent movies from, and tons of other things that I will never learn how to use.

    But here’s my REAL story…
    Ever since the boys were little, we had “date night” on Friday nights. I would pick them up after work and we would pick up McDonalds and rent a movie from Blockbuster. We would pile up in my bed and watch movies and fall asleep.
    ONE FRIDAY NIGHT, my now-ex was going to be home and wanted to go out to eat as a family. As we passed Blockbuster, the oldest child, probably 7 or 8 at the time, said, “Mo-om, you passed up the movies.” I explained that we were going to dinner with Daddy. He was confused and asked why. (No idea, but that’s what families DO.)
    “But Mo-om, it’s DATE NIGHT.”

  293. 293

    Family movie night is big-doin’s around here. 8 year old loves to choose the movie and 4 year old dictates where we all sit. We almost always have pizza. Sometimes we shake it up and have popcorn! We all love movie night.

  294. 294

    The best movie night we had involved brining the reclining seats from our mini-van into the living room and having ‘Drive-in Movie Night’. Even my 22 year old daughter had a blast.

  295. 296

    When our guys were still living at home we hosted summer outdoor theatre and always showed, So, I Married as Ax Murderer. Admission=candy!

  296. 297
    Heather says:

    We actually just had a family movie night–on a rainy evening with no activities and no homework (huzzah!!). Pulled out the Charlotte’s Web, that we’ve all seen multiple times, popcorn, quilts and snuggles. YAY!

  297. 298

    So much fun!

    Anne N. says:

    We love movie night! My husband and I enjoy taking our two children to the movies, but we also love watching movies together in our living room. Thanks for the chance to win.

  299. 300

    We love family movie night! My husband makes yummy homemade popcorn and sodas, and we curl up on the couch with kids and dog. Fun times!

  300. 301

    Popcorn, m&m’s, and piles of pillows and blankets, sprawled all over the living room!

  301. 302

    Chocolate milkshakes, cheesy buttered popcorn, Grandma’s afghan. Mmmmm.
    Thanks for the opportunity to enter! Love Target!

  302. 303

    The only requirements for Movie Night are family + popcorn. Oh, and a movie. :)

  303. 304

    We don’t really do movie nights quite yet, but when we do I’m planning on popcorn and blankets and piling up together on the couch. By the way, thanks for this give-away. I’m ashamed that this is my first time commenting. (I love Target!!) I discovered your blog a few months ago and love to read! Thanks for sharing so much and so often!!

    Amanda Weems says:

    My favorite way to do movie night started a when my sons (now ages 6 and 7) were just toddlers and a friend of mine told me about “Muffin Tin Monday.” The idea is that you put the kid’s food in one of those six hole muffin tins – six different items, often new to them, just to change things up a bit – and my boys loved it. It was a special once a week treat and as they grew older we combined it with movie night and ‘Muffin Tin Monday Movie Night” was born. It”s not an every week occurence but it is still fun to so something a little different every now and start our week off watching a movie while the boys eat from their (now jumbo size) muffin tins.

  305. 306

    We have family movie night every week. We get out lots of blankets and pillows and have dessert afterwards.

  306. 307

    We have a pull out couch in our family room for guests and my almost 3 year old thinks it is the biggest treat to pull it out, wear jammies and c uddle with lots of blankets while watching a movie together. I think my husband is looking forward to the day family movie night doesn’t involve a Disney Princess!

  307. 308

    Saturday is our movie night – sometimes our son joins us and sometimes it’s just hubby and I. Snacks are a must and the dog curled up between us. Love movie night!

  308. 309
    Alison Coffey says:

    My two year old little girl is just getting into all the princess movies, so some nights we turn on a movie and let her watch while she eats. She sits in her little pottery barn chair and is captivated by the movie! So cute!

  309. 310

    since our two kids are still little, movie night is after their bedtime. preferably with great snacks. and we have to scoot our couch super close to our tv stand to be able to see on our tiny screen. :)

  310. 311

    I would LOVE one of these!

  311. 312
    Kristen L. says:

    Our oldest is just getting big enough to stay up for family movie night! Takeout dinner, popcorn, and some pillows and blankets to cuddle with are the recipe to our perfect night!

    Sabrina says:

    We love to go to the drive-in!

  313. 314
    Sheila Laurence says:

    I’m not big on movies, so the big thing about movie night for me is the food. I make a bunch of appetizers and something special to drink. We snack and watch the movie and it’s fun (even if I possibly read a magazine during the movie).

  314. 315

    My husband is a pastor at our church, and Sundays are looooong days for me and our three young girls. I found that by dinner time, when we haven’t seen him more that one minute all day long and he won’t be home until after 8pm, I’m DONE. So . . . instead of losing my mind, I invented movie night. The girls and I have a dinner picnic where we cover the living room carpet with blankets (I have lots of spills in my house), and we watch a movie while eating dinner. Afterwards it’s bath time and bed time, and I’m still sane. Yay for movie night!

  315. 316

    A giant bowl of popcorn, Dr. Pepper and 8 happy kids yelling “That’s me!” or “Who is THAT?!”

  316. 317

    Our movie night is usually Monday. Odd, I know, but after a crazy Monday at work it is nice. Children have all grown up so we can have it anytime we want and as often. Would love to have one of these for movies, hope to have some grandchildren soon!

  317. 318
    AmandaG says:

    It’s more like family movie afternoon for us, since our son is only 3. It usually involves one of a number of cartoon movies that are taking up way too much space on my DVR.

  318. 319

    My son is obsessed with Mighty Machines on Netflix so we usually just make our “movie night” out of one or two of those episodes. We’ve found he doesn’t really have the attention span for a full movie, and the full movies that are appropriate for kids are becoming few and far between. It seems a majority of the animated movies are made more for adults with crude or sexual humor, so we get creative with what we call movies :)
    This would be awesome though because he LOVES watching movies of himself. SEeing them on a big screen rather than the computer would be a blast!

  319. 320

    Finding a movie that is appropriate and interesting to kids (23, 21, and 13) can be challenging but it is sooo fun!

  320. 321

    My favorite way to do movie night is just to pile on the couch together with lots of blankets and a good movie. Nothing fancy!

  321. 322

    Most of our family movie nights are pizza, dessert, and a “Girls Pick, but mom and dad get a veto” night in the living room. I’d love to get a little projector for outdoor movies, or for sleep-overs!

  322. 323

    Movie night at our house = lots of popcorn and lots of snuggling!! Thanks for a chance to win!

  323. 324

    Wow, what fun! I would love to win. Thanks for the chance.

  324. 325
    Melissa P says:

    I SO remember the home movies! We used to beg my dad to pull out the projector & play them for us.

  325. 326

    Oops..forgot to include my favorite way to celebrate …with pizza and rum and diet cokes for the adults and root beer floats for the kids!

  326. 327
    Stacy H says:

    It’s just me and my hubby for movie nights. We snuggle together on the couch and usually eat dark chocolate chips. Yum.

  327. 328

    So cool! My husband is a videographer so he would love this. My kids ask to have a movie night every Friday, which consists of popcorn and hot chocolate. Not sure where that combination comes from, but its tradition!

  328. 329
    Kristen says:

    This is so neat! The only thing that really seems to matter to my kids when it comes to family movie night is that the whole family be snuggled together on one couch while we watch! (In fact, that’s really all that matters to the parents, too.)

  329. 330

    On the couch with movie butter popcorn!

  330. 331

    Our family movie night goes something like this…

    1. pick out a movie from Redbox
    2. order pizza (delivery)
    3. eat ‘Drumstick’ ice cream cones for dessert

    The End! :)

  331. 332

    How fun! We don’t have a ton of family videos, but the ones we have are so special. My husband took a video of one of our kids lip-synching to a U2 song and mixed it in with some family shots, and it’s both hilarious and, well, kind of meaningful to us too. This would rock!

  332. 333
    Maria Hudson says:

    We start our family movie night by having a picnic in the floor of the den!

  333. 334

    What fun I’d have with this… I’m finishing up my first year as a teacher and thus about to begin my first summer staying home with my 3 girls… I imagine we’d get after some pretty fun movie nights with this one!

  334. 335

    We spread quilts out in the living room floor, grab our pillows and popcorn and snuggle up in the dark! The kids LOVE getting to eat somewhere other than the kitchen table, and I LOVE to feel those little ones snuggling close for a little bit.

  335. 336

    Typically family movie night is in the living room each under a blanket eating snacks. The 3M projector would let us have neighborhood movie night in the backyard!

  336. 337

    I have two boys – ages 4 and 5. Friday nights are our movie night where we all cuddle up on the living room floor with piles of pillows and blankets and watch a kid movie and eat popcorn. It’s one of my favorite things to do since they stop playing/running/wrestling/shooting guns/etc. long enough to cuddle with me.

  337. 338
    Heather J. says:

    Very cool! I hadn’t seen these at all, looks like lots of fun!

  338. 339

    Yes, this:

    “There are all these moments that you think you’ll remember forever, but they have a way of slipping away with time and the busy-ness of life.”

    I had these thoughts exactly as I looked through the girls baby books when we were cleaning a closet last night.

  339. 340

    movie nights are just at home in the family room with the TV. being able to have a movie night at the cabin, outside, would be awesome.

  340. 341
    Liberty Hudson says:

    We usually put a blanket on the floor and have a picnic while we watch our movie-usually pizza,or sandwiches.Then I pop popcorn and each of my kiddos get a bowl with their favorite candy mixed in-sour patch kids,m&ms,whatever they each like best.At some point,we usually migrate to the couch,and all pile up together while a couple generally get so snuggly they fall asleep!

  341. 342

    Family movie night is not complete without popcorn with M&M’s at our house!

  342. 343

    We love to curl up on the couch with both dogs and an ice cold dr. pepper for movies!

  343. 344

    We try to do afamily movie night once a week (usually Sunday). We pop a huge bowl of popcorn in a hot-air popper, top it with REAL melted butter and salt, and spread out in the family room for the movie. Our 3 kids are ages 10,7 and 6 so we do a lot of Disney but we also like to incorporate some classics like The Princess Bride, National Velvet, The Music Man, The Swiss Family Robbinson, etc. – LOVE the classics!

  344. 345
    Brittany says:

    Last summer we rented a projector for my 3 year old’s birthday party and it was great–this is such a better option though!

  345. 346

    We don’t do movie night very often, but when we do, we like to push the couches together, facing each other, so it makes a large bed area. Then lights out, popcorn, and movie!

  346. 347
    Jessica says:

    I like to either go out to the movies with my family or have a campout movie night… boys get their sleeping bags and set up in front of the tv while we all munch on popcorn and other movie snacks.

  347. 348

    We turn all the lights out and snuggle with sleeping bags and blankets. Popcorn is a must!!

  348. 349
    Annie B. says:

    Love family movie nights!

  349. 350

    Family Movie Night for us normally involves homemade pizza on paper plates on a tablecloth in the family room. We turn off all the lights and just enjoy the peace of having all of us together. I’d love to be able to do this outside. So fun.

  350. 351
    Teresa W says:

    It would just be me and my hubby. Settled in the living room with a bowl of popcorn. It would have to be a night when there was no baseball on tv though!

  351. 352
    Brittany says:

    Good old popcorn and peanut M&M’s on the couch!

  352. 353

    My 6 year old daughter and I love to send the boys to the hunting camp for a night, and then curl up with popcorn and a movie. Fun snuggling times!

  353. 354

    Love watching movies with the regulars…Candy, popcorn, bean bags…



  354. 355
    Kelli Patterson says:

    We love movie night and if I could have a movie night anywhere it would be lounging on a raft in the swimming pool with my babies and hubs next to me. That is, of course, if we had a swimming pool and could watch a movie outside.

  355. 356

    Movie nights are made more special now that the kids are all gone, but when they are home we pile on the family room, watch a movie and then the memories start!

  356. 357
    slbowling says:

    Friday used to be movie night in our house. We would order pizza and watch a movie. Now that my 2 oldest are out of the house and the baby is 15 years old and rarely wants to hang with mom and dad; we don’t have movie night anymore.

  357. 358
    Amber V. says:

    Popcorn and all of us on the couch. Then half way through me and hubby sleeping. :-)

    Melaina says:

    Seven years ago when my daughter turned 2, we started Friday Night Movie Night. Since then, 94% of all Friday nights have been a family movie night with me, my husband, our daughter, and our son (this is an actual statistic vs. the 62% of other statistics that are made up). We order a pizza, put on our snugglies, press play on the remote, and sit on the comfy old couches upstairs with our feet up. Cheers to great memories made with movie nights!

  363. 364

    Our town has a weekly movie during the summer. A local business lets everyone hang out in their parking lot when the sun starts to go down. Everyone brings lawn chairs and their own snacks. We all enjoy a family friendly movie played on a huge screen. It’s so much fun to get together and hang out with our family and friends!

  364. 365

    We just plug our camera in to the front of the TV and oooo and aaaah over how LITTLE they were! Recently, though, we visited my MIL and she got out the old 8mm camera and we watched some REAL home movies of my husband and his sister, projected onto a sheet. It was great!

  365. 366

    Well I just moved back in with my mama and daddy at age 27 to begin treatment for newly diagnosed severe rapid-remitting multiple sclerosis. So, I see a lot of movies nights in my future. I don’t have a television in the room I stay in at their house, so I can just picture my mama, my little sister and myself snuggled up on my bed with a chick flick projected on my wall on those days where I’m going to be really sick and recuperating!

  366. 367

    I love movie night! We don’t do anything special, but it’s always fun!

  367. 368

    We like to eat popcorn and chips and sit on the couch watching one of our favorite DVDs

    My boys are too little for movie nights right now, but I’m looking forward to adding movies to our pizza night on Sundays when they are older!

  371. 372

    We usually pile into a bed and turn off most of the lights, leaving just enough to see to eat the chips and dip that are always a part of movie watching around here. :)

    Alyson Lee says:

    Mary Foster says:

    We do lots of family movie nights and all pile on the sofa together while we watch a movie. Sometimes we have “kid movie nights” with our neighbors (and great friends) and the 5 kids watch a movie while the adults sit on the patio and talk…uninterrupted…pure bliss!! We have LOTS of movie nights in December because we have tond of Christmas movies and it doesn’t feel like Christmas until we have watched them all. This new gadget sounds fabulous – I feel a fun Christmas party coming on!!

  375. 376

    I love me some target :)

  376. 377

    We usually borrow a projector and watch in our carport with our neighbors.

  377. 378

    We usually start with kettle corn and see what else we might “need” as a snack as we watch a movie. In a house full of boys, I sometimes need to have a book on hand for family movie night. How many explosions can there be in one movie?

  378. 379

    I never seem to win these! But maybe, just maybe, this will be the one! What a fun idea for a sleepover!

  379. 380

    I love Friday night movie nights at home with my hubby! We are usually so tired from a long week that we like to order take-out and hang out on the couch with a good movie! And now that we are expecting a little boy in August, I’m sure we’ll be enjoying a lot more movie nights at home!

  380. 381

  393. 394

    We snuggle up with blankets and popcorn (my husband frequently makes kettle corn). We’ve always talked about having friends over for a summer movie outside but we’ve never managed to do it. It looks like this would helps us with our goal!

    Movie night at our house involves cuddling on the couch, a glass of wine for me, icy cold root beer for Nick, and hot popcorn to share. Yum.

  400. 401

    Lots of popcorn with lots of butter. Our TV is the older type, nothing flat or wide or HD about it. We don’t like to watch DVD’s with the bottom and top quarters of the screen blank now that so many things are formatted for wide screen, so we use a re-size button to magnify the picture to fill the screen. Kind of funny what gets cut off on the sides of the scene sometimes!

    SO tonight was my baby boy’s kindergarten program…. you know, the type og program they do INSTEAD of a graduation because they know all of us moms would be in tears if our babies were in a cap and gown. Instead they are dressed up as cute animals and given lines to memorize and we cry anyway. It would have been amazing to catch those moments with a new fancy schmancy video camera instead of my phone. That’s all I’m trying to say.


  404. 405

    Our Brownie troop hosted a family game night this spring…how fun would a family movie night be? Different snacks and a silly movie big enough for everyone to see!!

  405. 406

    A local shopping/entertainment area plays movies on a huge billboard during the summer. You go early, plunk down your lawn chairs and blankets, go grab a quick dinner or happy hour, then go back to sit and enjoy with lots of other families. Small town feel for the huge Valley of the Sun (Phoenix area). Love it!

    I don’t really do movie nights b/c I’m just not really a movie lover. So movie nights at our home are usually done without me but the rest of my family does them and my husband makes the kids popcorn with LOTS of butter!

  411. 412

    Family movie night: The parents try not to fall asleep! Our kids are teenagers and still like to hang out with us. The last movie we went to see together was “The Hunger Games”. Popcorn with butter and drinks and candy at the theater. I love our theater because we reserve our seats and buy our tickets online so there is not waiting in line.
    At home we pick a movie ususally from Netflix, use my new popcorn popper and snuggle up under blankets.
    My grandfather had the same movie camera with the bright light. I love those memories!

    A normal family night for my family of 5 is settling into a Netflix movie together at home while snacking on microwave popcorn or rootbeer floats.

    Jessica S says:

    When I was a kid we used to go to the library in the summer and sit on blankets on the grass and watch movies projected on the side of the building. We would pop lots of popcorn and put it into a big paper grocery bag. I loved sitting outside with my family enjoying the night sky while watching movies. I think that’s my favorite way to watch one.

    Carolsue says:

    When I was a teenager, that was what we did on dates — go to the drive in! Two movies for the price of one. It was great — I miss the drive ins, popcorn, and all the other fun stuff!

    This would be great to win!

  419. 422

    We love to order pizza and have a picnic on the living room floor. Then we pop some popcorn at the bathroom break mid-movie! :)

  420. 423

    Favorite movie nights? Outside with a sheet. Nate cursing as he tries to rig an old projector and his new amp together so it will be loud enough that the neighbors wonder what we are DOING! Homemade ice cream and strawberries… This is the coolest thing since iPods. Seriously. I will wait to see if I win before I go and pay full price for it…

  421. 424
    Shelley says:

    We all pile on the couch in the basement, try to get the sound figured out because we can never remember :), and eat lots of popcorn. Would love to win!

    Janelle says:

    Our kids are still too young for family movie night, but my husband and I enjoy a good movie night after the kids are in bed!

  423. 426
    ~Heather says:

    Basically: cocoa, popcorn and a blanket big enough to cover us all.

  424. 427

    Our kids are 18 & 20. It is hard to coordinate schedules these days. We still enjoy family movie night once in a while though.

  425. 428

    Every Friday night is homemade pizza and homemade ice cream night. In the winter we watch a movie. Summer we play outside.

  426. 429
    Kathleen says:

    We are empty nesters. It’s nice just sitting with my husband and quietly watching something. I also like it when my son comes over and we do a movie, which we have a lot of old traditions.

  427. 430
    SuzanneB says:

    Every Friday night we all sit down together and watch a family movie. Each week we roatate who gets to pick the movie, which can make for some interesting movie choices.

  428. 431

    We love to have family movie night in the family room with blankets and pillows everywhere. We have a large sectional and the seven of us are sprawled across that and the floor. Memories!!!

  429. 432
    Marie M.C. says:

    My son was born in 1968. We didn’t take ANY pictures in the hospital. ZERO. NONE. The hospital took one picture — which they then sold you, along with an impression of his foot. Huh? I do not have a SINGLE movie of him as a child. SOB. It kills me to see how easy it is nowadays to take photos and movies of one’s family. You can never take too many pictures and movies of your family. I only wish I had.

  430. 433

    I can’t even begin to explain how much my husband would love me if we won this. He is forever trying to figure out how to do a movie on our house. He wants to invite all the neighbor kids over for a movie night.

  431. 434
    Carolyn says:

    Family night for us is going out to dinner. Sometimes we rent a movie from RedBox. Nothing too exciting but it works for us!

  432. 435

    Oh my what fun this would camera would be. I am with you on the movie on the side of the house being unbelievable fun. Be sure to bring the OFF.

  433. 436

    Much like many others here, it consists of sitting on the couch with popcorn and just spending time together!

  434. 437

    We do family movie night by spreading out a blanket on the floor and having a picnic.

  435. 438
    Jennifer S R says:

    Pizza and a Movie (and ice cream of course too)

  436. 439

    Our movie night always includes popcorn and candy!

  437. 440

    There’s just two of us…but my husband says we’re still a family.
    We enjoy kicking back in comfy clothes with the cats nestled beside us watching a romantic comedy (my choice).

  438. 441
    Laurie J says:

    Right now family movie night consists of “camping out” in the back room with nearly every blanket in the house draped over dining room chairs. We sit in the dark, under a canopy of mismatched blankets and watch a DVD. But the wall projector would definitely make things even more fun!

  439. 442

    I have been wanting a movie projector for years! My girls are still little but I can picture many sleepovers in our future and watching movies in the backyard. I definitely need to get one of these!

  440. 443
    Christie W says:

    Family movie night consists of me and my husband along with our two boys and the dogs gathering up all the best blankets and pillows in the house and laying around in the living room with popcorn and a movie we can (hopefully) all agree on!

    Cayce Stoneburner says:

    My kids love to sing into the mirror and we have a ton of videos of this!

  442. 445

    During the summer our city has “Movie On The Barn” on a Friday night. A classic movie is displayed on the outside of a historic barn on the outskirts of town. I grab a friend, lawn chair, blankets, snacks and away we go. What fun it would be to have my own “Movie On The House” party with the neighbors or my son’s friends. Thanks for the great idea and the opportunity to win!

  443. 446

    We love snuggling on the big coach with the fur blanky and eating chocolate and watching duck tales.

  444. 447

    We have a “Catch up with the DVR” night after my little girl goes to sleep. I can’t wait until we can pop in a DVD movie have pizza every Friday.

  445. 448
    Janet B. says:

    My family loves to eat popcorn in our jammies on movie night.

    piled up on the couch with the kiddos is the best. Especially with pop corn and M&M’s.

    Tricia C says:

    we bring out the air mattress which fits up to our couch perfectly to make a huge lounging area, pop some popcorn and get some junior mints and watch 2 or 3 movies on a rainy Saturday…….my kids love this!

  448. 451
    Stephanie says:

    I would LOVE to sit around the living room with our 5 kiddos watching home movies! What an awesome giveaway.

  449. 452
    Colleen says:

    my boys love movie nights. They usually involve us squishing together on the sofa under blankets. Of course, you can’t forget the popcorn. There is always popcorn.

  450. 453

    When my husband and I were dating and engaged, we lived just outside of DC and would venture in to watch “Screen on the Green”…they would put up a giant screen on the lawn next to the Washington Monument or on the Mall and show classic movies. It was a great movie night!

    Now our movie nights consist of air-popped popcorn (with butter, of course!) on our couch with our 4-year-old son…and we wouldn’t have it any other way. :)

  451. 454

    We love pizza, air popped popcorn and usually a milkshake. I have boys who like to eat A LOT :) Movie night is a staple in our house. We’d love the Target gift card!

  452. 455

    We have an “empty nest” so movie night for us is usually when one of the Grands spends the night and we watch a kid friendly movie on the iPad. It would we so much fun to project it!

  453. 456

    Movie nights at are house go like this: Let’s have a movie night!
    Girls: Okay!
    Me: let’s pop popcorn.
    11 yr old: OMG I am SO tired of popcorn! Ugh.
    Me: OK then, let’s pick a movie. How about this one?
    16 yo: OMG that movie is SO stupid! I’m not watching that.
    11 yo: Well that’s the one I want to watch/!
    16 yo: FINE THEN! I just won’t watch a movie! (storms off into her room to text 67 people about how hard her life is)
    11 yo: I’m going to read my book.
    Me: I Hate movie night.

    Brandi P says:

    We have popcorn and treats with blankets and pillows on the couch.

  456. 459

    For us, movie night requires popcorn and some sort of candy. I love that my kids are old enough to have family movie night, but I still love late night movies with my husband after they’re in bed.

  457. 460

    Snickerdoodles and Words With Friends because I can’t. just. sit. there. :-)

  458. 461
    Rachel R. says:

    We love to get a great movie, order some pizza and snuggle in with our 4 kids. It’s a great way to watch a movie!!

    Family movie night usually is my husband and I watching a princess movie while our little girl has wander out of the room after 20 minutes

    Jessica says:

    i’m sad to say i haven’t done a movie night with my kids yet but it’s definitely a great idea.

  462. 465

    My favorite movie nites don’t happen all the time,. It is when I get to visit my granddaughter and we snuggle on the couch with popcorn and get to watch a movie we love.

  463. 466

    Since the little one is 4, we do all things animated & add some popcorn.

  464. 467

    We pile in the living room in our jammies and pop lots of popcorn!

  465. 468
    Jennifer says:

    Movie night is usually alone time for me since my husband isn’t much of a movie buff, and we’re lucky to get our four year old daughter to sit still for 30 minutes… much less two hours for a movie! :)

  466. 469

    I need to get one of these for my kids to watch movies!

  467. 470

    Sounds awesome…we currently just plug our video camera into the tv and watch our videos there – thanks for the chance to win!

  468. 471

    My favorite way to do movie night is after we put the kids to bed…sitting on the couch with my hubby!

  469. 472

    So far it is just me and my husband, but we love movie nights on the couch with red wine! :)

  470. 473

    It’s just my husband and me now so when we watch a movie, we turn off all the lights in the family room and turn the sound up real loud and enjoy the movie!

  471. 474

    Would love one of those!!! Thanks so much for the giveaway!!

  472. 475

    Movie night occurs at least once a week at my house, but I have been dying to host a ‘drive-in’ movie night in our backyard. There is only one problem…we have no way to project the movie. Kind of a key component! this would be perfect and the size would make it so easy to store when the night is over. I need this 3M projector! :)

  473. 476
    Robin M. says:

    We just gather around the tv with popcorn and its all good.

  474. 477

    Sounds like fun!

    Sarah D says:

    Snuggled up together on the couch with popcorn!

  476. 479

    i don’t have a family yet, but my “family” of students enjoy prize-days of watching a movie or short video. i love to see them sprawled out on the floor, laying next to their friends, and giggling together. it’s a classroom memory!

  477. 480
    Annette D says:

    We enjoy picking out a movie that the whole family will enjoy and ordering pizza to enjoy while watching!

    Don’t do a lot of family movie nights – especially right now during this eternal, 6 month season of baseball – but when we do, I love the oldies with James Stewart, Bogie and Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, etc etc ….

  480. 483

    We do movie night with popcorn topped with parmesan cheese … And candy!

  481. 484

    We live family movie night– keep it simple with popcorn and a great family-friendly movie! ;)

    And… I’d love to win this since I just noticed that the contest ends on my 10th wedding anniversary!! Surely Target has some great gift options!

    Andra Casillas says:

    My 9 year old grand daughter, Alexis, spends Friday nights with me. We love to put on our pj’s, get a bowl of popcorn, get in bed and start the movie. She sometimes falls asleep before the end of the movie. My most memorable moments are spent with her!

  485. 488

    It’s “movie night” in my high school classroom for my students’ last days of school!

  486. 489

    This 3M projector is totally cool…I would love to have one so I can bring the movie night outdoor, especially in the summer. I love family movie night. My son and daughter takes turn picking a movie to watch (limited to 1 per night though). I’m always the one who prepare the snacks and drinks for our fun night cuddling on the couch.

  490. 493
    Heather says:

    This would be perfect for my stepdaughter and her family. They do movie night every Friday night. My 3 grandsons would love it!

  491. 494

    We are empty nesters and each like very different kinds of movies, so we don’t have a lot of movie nights. When we do, though, it would be great to watch them on something larger than our 800 lb. TV.

  492. 495

    When we have the whole crew together (2 teens and a tween) we have a movie night with pizza and usually something sweet like hot fudge pudding cake. It’s not always a movie, lately it’s been the show Castle. We have been catching certain family members, Dad, on the previous season that he has missed.

  493. 496

    I love watching old home movies!

    Jeanne T says:

    We have a great, hand crank “theater style” stove top popcorn popper, and it is a Must Use for family movie night! Popcorn with melted butter, begging dogs, and the whole family in the same room make for great memories :-)

    Elizabeth says:

    Friday nights we tend to order a pizza, stock up on beer and ice cream, and sack out with the latest Netflix. We’re classy that way. :)

    Ohhh…well my nine month old loves waving in the mirror to herself. I bet in the future she will love movie night!

    Kelly O says:

    We’re not really big movie watchers as a general rule, but we do watch Harry Potter movies whenever they come up on ABC Family (I think that’s one of the few DVD sets we actually own. We have all of them around here… somewhere…)

    I have a toddler who does really well watching a whole episode of Blue’s Clues. Which gives me just enough time to drink a cup of coffee.

  501. 504

    I love target and the big Mama blog!

  502. 505

    Family movie night – Go through the millions of video on the “new releases” until we find something to watch. Then hope it is good. If not, just pick up your laptop and halfway watch.

  503. 506
    Tiffany says:

    I could absolutely use a gift card to target!!! Awesome!!!

  504. 507

    Pizza, Doritos, dip, soda and a movie make for a perfect night!

  505. 508
    Kelli Kegley says:

    We all crawl into our bed and watch. Well half watch and half protect ourselves from our 2 yr old who is flopping around the bed like crazy out of excitement :)

  506. 509

    We never had home movies, but I remember getting the slide projector out and watching old slides was a big deal and it was so fun to do it with the family.

  507. 510
    Lorinda says:

    pizza, popcorn, blankets, and a good kids movie.

  508. 511

  509. 512
    Jamey Rogers says:

    This would be awesome! I can remember having “summer movie” nights out on the patio. My dad would drag the tv outside.. you know, the kind with 3 stations and you had to change the channel with the knob. Takes me back in time

  510. 513

    My husband and I curled up on the couch, eating cookie dough, and me probably falling asleep halfway through the movie. :)

  511. 514

    My favorite movie night is one that starts in the afternoon and features many movies. All I need is my husband on the sofa next to me, the puppy in my lap, and some sort of adult beverage. Perfection!!

  514. 517

    Would love this.. Thanks for the giveaway….

  515. 518

    family nights sound fun… would love to start them! and i could use that target gift card, for sure! ;)

    Shawna T says:

    Family Movie Night….I have an almost 2 year old and I’m 8 months pregnant. At our house, my husband picks out some action-packed rediculousness, my son falls asleep on his daddy’s lap shortly after the movie starts while I’m picking up house, and – as soon as I can get all of the lights out – I am sleeping to the sound of machine guns. Or shouting. Or terrible acting that is better slept through than tortured with actually viewing.

  517. 520
    Colleen Wolowski says:

    Friday night is pizza and a movie night — almost always.

  518. 521

    Every Friday night with pizza. We take turns picking a movie.

  519. 522
    Betsey Kates says:

    My two year old would love a movie night!

  520. 523

    Family movie night with no kids means haggling over movies for a while before finally deciding on something with a superhero. In good news, though, there’s always wine and popcorn. Oh yeah. And the husband!

  521. 524
    marianne says:

    rent a redbox movie and pop popcorn!

  522. 525

    We try to do family movie night once a month, where we all pile into our bed and eat popcorn. We don’t always make it through with the little ones, but we keep trying!

  523. 526
    missy grant says:

    …family movie night – the best. we have 4 kiddo’s now in age between 10-16, doesn’t matter what the movie is….being together makes it family.

  524. 527

    We usually watch a Disney movie or play a game of Catan. If our youngest is in bed, we watch Psych with the older kids (parent-selected episodes).

  525. 528

    Our neighbors used to to do movie night outside on the side of their house. It was always such a fun night and the kids thought it was the best thing ever!!

  526. 529

    We have lots of movie nights! We set up the huge projector screen and settle in with a big bowl popcorn and large glasses of tea.

  527. 530
    Laura C says:

    At the theater with fake butter popcorn and diet coke! My husband doesn’t love to go to the movies, but my little girls do and are old enough now to sit in their own seats through the whole movie :)

  528. 531
    Joanie E says:

    One of my little sisters favorite thing to do is watch old movies. We will watch them together & laugh until we cry. I need to make more movies of my kids.

  529. 532

    Popcorn on the stove, pillows and blankets, and parents and kids sprawled out all over the recliners! Maybe a glass of wine too :)

  530. 533

    We used to have movie night at my grandparents house and loved watching our parents when they were younger — the hairstyles were hilarious. Our favorite part was when the film would “burn up”. Now we have movie nights with our kids — but it would be great to set it up outside!

  531. 534

    Popcorn or ice cream has to be involved…also a comfy place to sit/ lie down on…otherwise it doesn’t matter as long as everyone is together…

  532. 535

    Summertime movies at the beach. Snuggling down in your beach chair with a blanket. Trying to eat your popcorn before it gets soggy.And listening to the waves crash on shore. Its a little slice of heaven.

  533. 536
    Jennifer Z. says:

    We put our toddler to bed, order bar food to be delivered, and watch a movie. When our daughter is old enough we plan to have pizza and movie night.

  534. 537
    Laura LaGroue says:

    This would be so much fun to own! My techy husband would love it!

  535. 538

    After what seems like many hours of picking an appropriate movie for all of us, there are even more countless hours spent (by our two children) making pallets in the floor..high enough you can barely see the tv over. Good times! We love it!

  536. 539
    WendyC. says:

    My favorite way to do family movie night is by my husband, daughter, son, and me snuggling up in my bed. That way, when one of us falls asleep, we’re already in bed and won’t have to be woken up to go to bed.

  537. 540

    I would love to win!! Target is our Wal-Mart! :-)

    Nee Nee says:

    I’d love to have a way to capture my YL girls on film… they’re funny!

  542. 545

    If I could only get my husband to sit down and watch a movie with me for ‘family movie night’ it’d be a miracle of the Lord. But a great ‘girls movie night’ generally goes down while he’s away on a guys trip!!!

  543. 546
    Lauren Abernathy says:

    My babies aren’t quite old enough for movie nights, so it’s usually just my hubby and me watching a movie once the babies are in bed. It almost always involves popcorn or ice cream too!

    Tiffany says:

    So fun!! My kiddos would LOVE that!!

  545. 548
    carley stevenson says:

    Our son is 3 so we usually watch a movie before bed or mid-afternoon on the weekends. However, my husband and I love to watch a movie after our son goes to bed!

  546. 549
    Rebecca H says:

    Family movie night for us consists of big bowls of popcorn for my husband and I, and a bowl of Cheerios or goldfish crackers for my 16 month old son. Anything with music and/or animals is a huge favorite for him and he loves having “popcorn” in the livingroom like a big boy. ;)

  547. 550

    My hubby has borrowed a projector from work a few times and brought it home for movie night….always such fun!!

  548. 551

    Lately, our favorite movie nights have been watching our own home movies!

  549. 552
    Courtney Younts says:

    Popcorn and a bottle of wine in the game room :)

  550. 553

    Movie night is my fave! We do twirlers and gummy candy, put our babe down and get our movie on! My recent favorite was Ides of March. Intense!!

  551. 554

    No favorite way for family movie night, yet, but since my kids are getting older, I think we better figure it out!

  552. 555
    Timmarie says:

    We make a concession stand and let the kids buy things with monopoly $.

    Stacey Schrock says:

    family night = dinner on the patio, talking with the grown ones and watching the younger ones jump in and out of the pool until late at night.

  554. 557

    We do family night with movie and popcorn. Lately with two teenagers, they want horror films.

  555. 558

    I long for a movie night. So many I would love to see, so little time.

  556. 559

    Want, need love…

  557. 560

    I actually got my husband hooked on Downton Abbey, which is more of a “TV” night than a movie night, but just as fun. Popcorn from the microwave and we are good to go!

  558. 561

    We get a movie from redbox, pop “real” popcorn and enjoy.

  559. 562
    Lindsey W says:

    Movies night include pizza to start and popcorn (and M&Ms) during the movie! And of course everyone needs to be piled on the couch, including the dogs!

    We just started the tradition of family movie night in our household. It’s gonna be fun.

  561. 564

    I love movie night! When I was a kid we’d push the two living room couches together to make what I called “The Pit” which is not nearly as horrifying as it sounds. Then my mom would microwave popcorn and slice apples and we’d go to town.

  562. 565

    My favorite way is at home, under the blankets, popcorn and m&m’s!

  563. 566
    Debbie N. says:

    We love to set out chairs and blankets on my sister’s lawn next door and watch movies on a big screen on the porch. We invite friends and set out fun goodies. It’s an awesome summer treat. One time we took the big screen over to Grandma’s (also next door on the other side) and sat in the pool and watched movies.

  564. 567

    movie night = big screen + pj’s + blankets + popcorn + wine + friends!!

  565. 568

    When my daughter comes to visit, we spend usually one whole day watching the movies together that we haven’t seen yet, but want to see together.

  566. 569

    This is COOL – movie night at our house is everyone crowded on the sectional with popcorn and a movie from Redbox!

  567. 570

    family movie night with popcorn and pizza! love it!

  568. 571

    I’d love to win!

  569. 572

    Of course the only way to do Movie night is with Popcorn and Pepsi. Then let your 4 yr old pick out the movie.

    Heather R. says:

    Our favorite way to do family movie night is at someone else’s house. :) Our TV is so small and old, we have to pull chairs up to just a few feet from the screen so we can actually see what is happening and follow the plot. This projector would totally redeem our lame movie nights!

  571. 574

    That would be so much fun! (Love your blog!)

  572. 575

    Kathryn says:

    Is it bad that we don’t do family movie night?! 2 kiddos are way to young and this mamma is way to tired at the end of the day to even stay awake for a movie!! ;)

  574. 577

    We have a ridiculously large TV, and though its not old school film, my kid loves to watch digital movies of himself on the big screen!

  575. 578

    Our kids are still a little small for movie night because they have a glorious 7:30 bedtime. So when we do family movies it’s usually on a Sunday afternoon during the post-church and pre-nap time frame. Except let’s face it, my sweet husband works so hard he usually begins his nap the minute we all sit down.

  576. 579
    Jennifer says:

    We like to eat in front of the TV on the rare occasion that we all sit down to watch something … movie or otherwise. Our boys drag their bean bags into the living room and turn out the lights. Then, it never fails, someone kicks over their drink, and we have to pause what we are watching and turn the lights on … go get towels, reassure the person who spilled the drink that it’s no big deal and happens to everyone … and, then, get settled all over again. Every. Single. Time.

  577. 580
    bamacurl says:

    We called it ‘Freezer-Fry Night’…all those bad for you finger eggrolls, breaded ravoli, mozz cheese sticks, and throw in some jalepeno poppers and southwest eggrolls, mabe some rotel cheese dip. Now, we choose a few of those, but they are baked instead of fried start with a salad.

  578. 581

    When I was a kid, we would get in our pajamas and pop some popcorn for family movie night.

  579. 582

    We don’t have many family nights these days because all my daughters are grown up. But when they come home for Christmas we have a great time watching movies and eating all their favorite foods and playing games and doing puzzles. This year we cut out hundreds of paper snowflakes and made the windows look like I don’t live in the desert.

  580. 583
    Nicole R says:

    We don’t have family movie night yet, as my son is only 14 months old, but we have mom and dad movie night every Friday after he goes to bed.

  581. 584

    Now that the nest is empty (wow, it pains me to the core to write that…) perhaps my hubby and I can start a new tradition and watch a movie together on date night. That way when we fall asleep we won’t have wasted a jillion dollars at the movie theater.

  582. 585

    We love a good family movie night! We all snuggle up on the sofa, feet propped on the ottoman and enjoy a big bowl of buttered popcorn (popped in a pot on the stove).

  583. 586

    This is a great giveaway – thanks!

    desiloubleu says:

    just last weekend the bf and I were talking about how we needed to pick one of these up! Not to mention how much he would geek out over having a projector. Pick me! Pick me! :)

    Debbie B says:

    We do family movie night with popcorn all cuddled on the couch together!

  587. 590
    CindyD. says:

    Popcorn, treats, jammies, all cuddled up on the couch until someone (usually mommy) falls asleep and declares BEDTIME!! :)

  588. 591

    With two little girls, movie night always includes pizza, popcorn, milkshakes, and princess movies!!

  589. 592

    Our favorite way to do movie night is to plop on the couch after we’ve grabbed a bowl of popcorn!! Thanks for a chance to win and have a great day!

  590. 593

    Our favorite way to have a movie night is with popcorn and chocolate chip cookies!

  591. 594

    Right now all my kids can’t sit through an entire movie, but we try..popcorn usually and maybe for a special treat some candy for the kids. I prefer a glass of wine and we are good to go! We snuggle on the couch with lots of blankets and pillows! Watching one outside would be a real treat!

  592. 595
    Heather E says:

    Good snacks and a blanket!

  593. 596
    Mardi S says:

    Pop secret movie theater butter, a big diet pepsi (coke for the husband), kids in the bed!!

  594. 597
    Andi Thomas says:

    We have two types of family nights since our kids are 18months and 3 years. Sundays we come home and eat PB&Js in the living room and “watch sumpin funny,’ as my oldest says. We America’s Funniest Home Videos. Other nights, we put the kids to bed and eat a snack and watch a movie, I guess that’s more of a date night though.

  595. 598

    Kids pick the movie, and I make the popcorn. :)

  596. 599

    Our family rotates who gets to pick the movie each time we have a movie night. That way we all eventually watch something we like. We need to do it more often, though.

  597. 600
    lisabug says:

    We pop the popcorn (extra butter please!), make a chocolate milkshake (heavy on the chocolate!), and pile on the couch with the kid, the dog, and a snuggly, old quilt (inhereted from my grandma). After all that I realize we forgot to put the movie in the DVD player…daaaaang! Big Daddy always caves and gets up to put in the movie…I knew he was a keeper the moment I met him 20 years ago :)

  598. 601

    The same…blanket, good movie, diet coke and popcorn for me.

  599. 602
    Allison says:

    What a fun idea!

    michelle says:

    We buy pizza, sit on the floor, and watch a movie. Fun!

  601. 604

    With three kids at 6, 3, and 21 months, our family nights usually consist of putting the youngest to bed, popping some popcorn and snuggling up on the couch to watch a Disney movie or a musical. Or if mama and papa are feeling very generous, we’ll watch a dreaded Barbie movie. It puts a smile on face thinking about it!

  602. 605

    There are 5 of us, so we all grab a comfortable spot, make popcorn, chip and salsa or something munchy and enjoy!

  603. 606

    Fun! We like popcorn with butter, salt…and a little brown sugar. Yum!

  604. 607

    Friday night are pizza/movie nights!!

  605. 608

    I love your posts!

  606. 609
    Yolanda McLean says:

    pizza, popcorn and movies!!

  607. 610

    Family movie night consists of great popcorn, sour patch kids, and a blanket. Each and every time.

  608. 611

    The perfect family movie night is if everyone puts away their ipads, iphones, and laptops and actually sit on the couch and watch the movie together. I think those days are long gone

  609. 612

    Our family movie night consists of lots of snacks and gathering with all of our friends/neighbors outside to enjoy a movie on our garage door! Also, I could use A LOT of new Merona…or Mossimo – I’m not picky.

  610. 613

    I love this! Movie night is my favorite

  611. 614
    Rebecca Phillips says:

    Friday nights are cheat nights we eat complete “junk”. We rent movies or just watch old classic Disney movies.

  612. 615
    Donna G says:

    Family movie night, for the boss and me, consists of microwave popcorn and taking turns sitting in the comfy chair. It doesn’t happen much, mostly because we are usually talking and not watching movies. For that we go to the show.

  613. 616

    Me, the hubby, the cats and a bag of microwave popcorn. Nothing better :-)

  614. 617

    We love family movie night but have always wanted to have an outdoor movie party …. Popcorn and sweets are must haves and our three boys take turns picking!;

  615. 618

    The boys would go bananza watching any type of “super hero” movie on this gizmo! We’re in a bit of a super hero/action figure phase right now – oh, the joys of 3 boys. =)

    I read this post days ago. When you posted it. Why didn’t I comment then? Thanks for the giveaway, Melanie. I can’t wait for May to be over, too. Five more days of school. I can make it…

  617. 620

    Oh, the things I could do with $150 at Target!

  618. 621

    Family movie night means red box and popcorn :)

    Jean H. says:

    Family movie nights usually involve popcorn or ice cream. Unfortunately, I am notorious for falling asleep during family movie night.

  620. 623

    Nothing fancy, just the family, popcorn, and a movie. It is always fun though! Thanks for the giveaway!

  621. 624

    We just got a new tv in our bedroom and my boys love to pile into my bed and all snuggle together to watch a movie. My youngest has to bring a ton of stuffed animals. LOL

  622. 625
    Catherine says:

    Family movie night for us means Netflix on the couch with the hub. Simple and perfect.

    Family Movie night is best with popcorn cooked the “old-fashioned” way, and the whole family relaxed on the couch!

    My husband, two kids, and I love to have bowls of popcorn and hot cocoa in the gameroom.

  629. 632

    We have family movie night whenever Redbox has a free code!

  630. 633

    We put towels on the floor, eat dinner and enjoy some family movie time.

  631. 634

    Blankets and pillows piled on the living room floor, all my favorite people on top of them, pop corn inbetween us and a movie that makes our kids giggle bc that’s the best sound ever :)

  632. 635

    Family night for us usually involves watching a musical….The Sound of Music was our last movie we watched together (we being my daughters and me- my husband does not share our love of musicals!).

  633. 636

    With only all-male family members, my favorite movie nite is a good chick flick after everyone else is snoozing!

  634. 637
    Elizabeth says:

    We have two little girls, so typically movie evenings for us include a kiddo flick and popcorn. And then my husband flees to the other room as soon as Barbie comes on the screen. Ha! :)

    Jennifer L says:

    Buttery popcorn, a movie we all want to watch and just relaxing as a family! It’s a rare thing lately.

  637. 640

    Movie night on the couch with my sweet husband and pizza!

  638. 641
    Melissa says:

    That is amazing, I need one asap :)

  639. 642

    Our favorite way to have family movie night is to pull down the big screen, turn on the projector, and sit down with a big bowl of popcorn (made the old-fashioned way). It fun, it’s relaxing, it’s yummy. What’s not to love!

  640. 643
    tiffany says:

    Heather says:

    A perfect movie night is jammies, pillows, and popcorn! And I prefer a nice light comedy or an older classic movie. This projector is definitely going on my wish list. So many possibilities!

  645. 648

    I love doing Family Night with all 4 of us eating popcorn we made, and then putting in a classic that we all enjoy like “True Grit.” Inevitably, 2 of the 4 will fall asleep there, but it’s fun while we’re all awake!

  646. 649

    we pile on the sofa, all four of us cozy-style, and watch a movie on Netflix

  647. 650
    Sarah N says:

    I put the wee bits to bed, grab the Netflix & open a bottle of vino. A big bottle of vino! ;)

    Jenny G. says:

    Just the hubby and me and we love movies! We love going to the theater, movies at the park in our town, we are avid Red Box users, we buy them on cable TV and best of all – watching them on the computer snuggled in bed!

  650. 653

    What a fantastic idea for using at our cabin in the woods. Hang a white sheet between two trees, set up lounge chairs, light a bonfire nearby, add blankets and hot chocolate. Mmmm…..sounds so relaxing!!

  651. 654
    Ashley Anderson says:

    Family movie night= popcorn and snuggles!

  652. 655

    This would be so fun to make our own “drive-in” movie theater!

  653. 656

    Our family movie nights consists of pj’s and a huge bowl of ice cream!

  654. 657

    With popcorn and lots of chocolate!

  655. 658

    I would love to have family movie night, but with a 7 year old boy and a 3 year old girl, that’s a challenge. Not too many movies that they both want to see, but we try. I could definitely use a Target gift card though ;)

  656. 659

    Lots of pillows. Lots of popcorn!

  657. 660
    Lisa Clarke says:

    Now, the hubs and I have movie night out at an actual movie theater, something we couldn’t do when our 5 kids were little. Then, it was 20 minutes of arguing over which Disney movie we would watch, someone ending up crying, several would wander off to do other things, and almost everyone falling asleep by the end. Oh, how I miss it.
    My Best,

  658. 661

    Charlotte says:

    Family movie night is simply in the living room in front of our old style, 32″ TV!

  660. 663

    A really great family night is one where our 6 month old sleeps long enough for us to watch the entire movie without interruption! Looking forward to the days of home movies and popcorn though!

  661. 664

    We combine movie night with leftovers night – that way it’s win-win for all involved (including me!). Everyone fills their plate with the fridge clean-outs and “waves” their plate and then takes it upstairs to the rec room for eating while watching. Now the boys ask “is tonight leftover/movie night?” with hopeful anticipation!

  662. 665

    My kids are older now (young adult older) and all still live at home. That doesn’t stop movie nights…..
    We do a few things—
    1) make foods that we call game food, ex: nachos, crockpot mac & cheese, hot wings
    2) pick a few MUST SEE movies
    3) comfy clothes
    4) dog pile in front of the tv

    Chill out with lights out!

    Our favorite family movie night was at the drive in. We brought our own popcorn and treats and enjoyed staying up really late!

  670. 673

    Our favorite way to do family movie night is to order pizza and pop popcorn! We also bring out the sleeping bags for extra comfort :)

  671. 674
  672. 675

  673. 676

    We used to make blanket forts and hide out with bowls of popcorn, Coke, and our favorite movies!

  674. 677

    I don’t have a family, but my favorite way to do movie night on my own is to put on some PJs, find a sweet treat, curl up on the couch, and peruse the instant netflix options or my dvd collection.

    Love Target!

  675. 678

    usually just watching a watching a movie while piled up on the couch. popcorn and something sweet is a nice treat too.

  676. 679

    We love to cuddle up on the couch with some popcorn and put in a Disney movie for Family Movie Night around here! (4 year old, thus the Disney flicks) My daughter loves it so much and asks for movie night quite often, then demands we are all on the couch together before we are allowed to start it! :)

  677. 680

    Our old hood did an outdoor movie night – highlight of the summer for all! Moved and would love to start this tradition here. We are a bit “home sick” so anything to help us transition to our new state.

  686. 689

    My husband is a little ADHD when it comes to movies, so my boys (8,6,3) and I do it when he is traveling – popcorn and whatever Disney movie is new at the redbox!

  687. 690

    Popcorn with extra butter + a Saranac Summer Shandy (formerly known as Summer Brew). Done!

  692. 695

    Family movie night at our house isn’t exactly a “tradition” yet as our children are 5 and 1 so, really, not much at all is really a family tradition quite yet ~ ha! When we do all four watch a movie though (which is actually pretty rare), it’s usually me on the couch cuddled with one or two children and my husband in the recliner cuddled with one or no children ;)

  693. 696

    I blogged about it too for my second chance to win! :)

  694. 697

    We LOVE family movie night! Although, we’re still perplexed when the kids run out of the room out of boredom. I guess they’re not into Magnum P.I. reruns. ; )

  695. 698

    with lots of popcorn and snacks

  696. 699
    Leann Lindeman says:

    It is just my husband and I now… we will sometimes do movie night on Saturday! we have a nice comfy sofa recliner, so we are laid back.. nice and relaxed. We might eat some popcorn.

    Movie night must include these things: the dark, popcorn fresh out of the popper (not the microwave), some sort of chocolate, and blankets so I have something to hide my face in if need be! LOL
