Gather your whole family together for a fun family movie night!
Here’s how do it with a free movie, free printables, and a $50 Walmart gift card giveaway!
My family might look like a normal American family, but don’t let those smiling faces deceive you.
We’re actually weird.
We’re really weird.
In fact, we rock at being weird. 🙂
When we are all together, we love to act crazy, try new things, and make memories.
So when my youngest son got his first cell phone a few weeks ago, the data plan included a free VUDU movie credit. He told me we could use the credit for a family movie night.
Can you guess what movie we watched? (Hint – It has Mel Gibson and corn fields in it.)
It’s an oldie, but a goodie.
We even made headgear so the aliens couldn’t read our minds! 🙂
The best way to plan a family movie night is to keep it affordable and easy, so you can focus on having fun.
So I’ll show you how I did it, and I have a $50 Walmart gift card a the end too.
First, here are the details about the Samsung Galaxy On5 and Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan that made our movie night possible:
- The Samsung Galaxy On5 is rollback priced at $69. He was worried buying a phone would eat up his whole return, but was relieved that he had money left over to buy some clothes and save for other important purchases – like saving to buy his first car.
- He chose the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan that has unlimited talk, text, & data for $49.88 that includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G.
He takes an online class, so the larger data plan was the smartest choice. It doesn’t have any overage fees either.
- Since Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 for the SIM kit. There is no activation fee.
The free movie credit is a great perk that comes with the plan.
Weird headgear wasn’t the only thing we had for our movie – I made an easy theater style concession stand too!
Supplies I used: (includes a few affiliate links)
- folding table
- plastic table cloth
- crate or drawer (the link for the tutorial to make the rustic drawer is below)
- metal washtub
- boxes of candy from the dollar store
- white handled bags
- bottles of soda
- bag of ice
- free printables below
- double-sided tape
How I did it:
I printed the image below and hung it on the wall with double-sided tape.

Then I printed the popcorn label below at 3.5″ x 5″ size. Four will fit on one page.

I taped the labels on the white bags, then filled them with fresh popcorn.
The candy and popcorn went in my DIY rustic drawer.
I love this drawer. There are so many ways to use it.
I filled the metal washtub with ice and bottled drinks. I love galvanized tubs so much!
They loved getting to pick their favorite snacks and drink, without having to pay for them!
I’ve never really liked the big TV in our living room, but for family movie night it’s perfect.
We streamed the movie to our TV with Chromecast.
The best part is, we can have a family movie night every month, because the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan comes with with a free VUDU movie credit ($7 value), which is the same as a new release rental.
