By: Amanda

Rather than wasting hours watching mediocre television this summer, grab some friends and catch up on the latest new release movies! Or why not go all-out and make it a summer movie night block party?

Use PartyIdeaPros.com's Oscar night ballots as a starting point for choosing your nightly movie. Most of the nominated films are currently available on DVD or through Amazon on Demand. Stick with Party Idea Pros simpler Movie Night celebration package ideas for your summertime viewing parties.  Then pick two nights during the summer to glam it up with our Lights, Camera, Action and Hollywood Nights celebration packages.

Organizing a block party or reunion? Hosting an all school barbeque/fundraiser, a sweet sixteen or teen party, an adult or children's birthday party, or  even anniversary party?  A backyard movie night is a wonderful theme for any warm weather event.  Just choose your movie to suit the occasion  — think John Wayne, Sponge Bob, Legally Blonde, The Parent Trap, Casa Blanca, Star Wars, Rear Window, The Shawshank Redemption Twilight and New Moon double feature and the list goes on and on.
