Birthday Party Ideas for Movie Loving Kids

If your child has ever envisioned their name in lights, then throwing a birthday party at a movie theater might just be the perfect celebration for your star or starlet.

Whether accommodating a small group or a large event, movie theater parties provide a variety of options that are sure to please kids, and even adults, of all ages.  Standard packages include:


  • A private screening of the latest kid friendly flicks in your very own auditorium
  • Popcorn, soda and concession stand favorites for attendees
  • Cafe packages with pizza, cake and time for signing
  • The birthday boy/girls name highlighted on the movie marquee to welcome guests
  • A host to coordinate all the details so parents can sit back and enjoy the show

If you have a smaller group, or a smaller budget, consider planning movie party at home.

  • Print out your own Movie Tickets for the invitation.  Kids can present it as they come into your home as if they were entering a theater.
  • Set the mood with great decorations including a Theater Marquee for your door and these genuine Small Dancing Snack People Signs.
  • Let’s face it, nothing tastes as good as movie popcorn.  Invest in a real stove top popcorn maker and real movie popcorn for that straight from the concession stand flavor and smell.  Check it out at Real Theater Popcorn.   And the finishing touch by filling them in these great Paper Popcorn Containers.
  • Make your own preview. Cut a video of the birthday boy or girl on JibJab showing their future as a baseball player or dancer.
  • For the film itself, check out, they have a wide selection of previously released DVDs at a fraction of the price of retailers. See the entire selection at Half. For newer films, consider Netflix or streaming services or even check your On Demand guide on your regular home cable for free films from already subscribed to movie channels.
  • For favors, kids will love to take home these great Hollywood Director Picture Frames.

Enjoy the show!
