Spin movie night on its head this summer - take it out under the stars. A few essentials - your favourite summer films, projector, projector screen (makeshift if you like), media player, comfy seating, drinks and nibbles - and you’ve got the recipe for one fun-filled evening.
Enjoying with the kids
Goonies - an oldie but a goodie, and at over 30 years old, it’s fair to say that this one’s definitely stood the test of time.
Shrek - a loveable ogre finds his peace and quiet shattered in this feel good flick for adults and kids alike.
Wine and nibbles with the girls
Dirty Dancing - if you haven’t seen this film you haven’t lived. Apparently. The perfect love story, some serious moves and an addictive soundtrack; what more does a chick flick need?!
Legally Blonde – Reece Witherspoon stars as dizzy sorority girl Elle Woods – a blonde on a mission to prove she’s more than just a pretty face. And that she certainly does.
A romantic evening with your other half
Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet - gangs, guns and Shakespearean tragedy - romantic nonetheless.
The Notebook - tissues at the ready; trust us you’ll need them for this absolute heartbreaker of a love story.
Grease - a blockbuster of a musical with, quite frankly, one of the best and most memorable soundtracks of all time.
Mamma Mia! - an all-singing, all-dancing cheese fest; guaranteed to get you belting out Abba classics as loud as your lungs will allow. Try not to disturb the neighbours though (or invite them over!).
Scaring yourself silly
The Blair Witch Project - if you weren’t suitably frightened the first time round, watch this micro-budget blockbuster on a dark summer’s night for a terrifying new dimension.
Scream - scary and hilarious in equal measures, Wes Craven’s 1996 slasher is a highly entertaining fusion of horror, comedy and teen flick.
