Luckily, one of the simplest ways to spend time together happens to be one of the most fun. Family movie night is a classic gathering of film, friends, food and family. Put together a spread of sweet and savory concessions for a low-maintenance night with easy cleanup. You want all hands on deck for the night’s main attraction.
