Movie Night Theme Party & Free Printable V.I.P. Invitations

My family enjoys spending time together enjoying a good movie so when we were planning our party it seemed like the best party theme for us was a movie night theme party!

I received a lot of fun party items from Oriental Trading for the purposes of this post, but keep in mind that despite the partnership, all opinions are my own.

Movie Night Theme Party with free printable invitations

When picking out the supplies I needed to create the best movie theme party possible, I was amazed at how many cool items there were to choose from. I loved that you don’t have to be a professional party planner to get a fun party theme with all of the bells and whistles of a professionally planned party.

Movie night Party

I set up my party table with popcorn bags, movie themed party cups, and napkins. I used a red curtain movie themed backdrop which is a perfect backdrop for your red carpet photos.

Movie Photo Booth

My daughter created some free printable V.I.P. Invitations that you can print out and give to your friends. Just like any Hollywood movie screening you can gain access by presenting your V.I.P. credentials at the door.

Movie VIP Pass DIY

Print yours and follow the easy directions to make them into fun necklaces that your party guests can wear around their neck.

Print out the image above and use a hole puncher in the center of the top to feed ribbon through to turn your invitations into V.I.P. necklaces.

Fill out the party details so your guests know when to arrive and what movie you will be showing at your party.

Movie night

I hung up some Premiere Night Hanging Swirls and placed the Gold & Silver Star Centerpieces throughout my table to add a fun pop of color to my party spread.

Party Idea movie night

Oriental Trading had a bunch of different options for decorative pieces to hang and place throughout to really drive them theme home.

I especially like the Jumbo Movie Night Cutouts for placing throughout the room and laying on the table to fill in any blank space.

Movie Night Parties

I really love the Director’s Clapboard because I can write the movie we are watching as well as some other fun details for the night and then erase and reuse for the next movie night.

Movie Party Ideas

Another fun item you can pick up to personalize your party is the Film Strip Tape, I used it to decorate a serving bin to hold treats.

I didn’t know until I started shopping that you can get great deals on candy through Oriental Trading as well so I picked up a bag of fun sized M&M’s to offer my party guests.

Movie Night DIY Basket

I just wrapped it around the bin and secured the sides with tape to incorporate my movie theme while providing refreshments for my party guests.

Everyone had a great time and we are already planning our next party. I think I will head over to Oriental Trading to pick my next theme and stock up on goodies for the party. What is your favorite party theme?


  1. What an amazing party theme for a tween or teen girl! I am in love with this movie night themed party and the invitations are so cute! I am going to share this with some of my room mom friends now because I think it would make an awesome theme for one of our school parties.

  2. This is awesome! Movie themed is my favorite. I never would have thought to print these though. I’m book marking this for later use for sure. Love it!

  3. My kids love movie night, so I love the idea of having a movie night party. I love the printable- it’s such a cute addition. There are a few movies out there that the kids have been wanting to rent, so we will take your ideas and create a cute movie night soon!

  4. Movie night theme party sounds and looks like would (did) go down a treat. I think I would enjoy such a theme party. Loving how you put it all together

  5. I love Oriental Trading Company! Ordered a lot of stuff from them for my stepdaughter’s daddy/daughter dance earlier this year. The party favors were awesome. I am definitely going to take a look at this. We havea media room in our home and it would be so fun to throw a movie themed party!

  6. This is a brilliant party theme, and the decorations are so well thought-out! It takes a lot of imagination to put something like that together!

  7. I am in love with these decorations! We do family movie nights on a regular basis, but I never thought to throw a movie themed party. I’m excited to do this with some of the new movies that are coming out.
