For lovers of the big and small screen, nothing is more romantic than cuddling up to watch a good movie. Some couples are not quite there yet though, while others need help to rekindle the romance. A movie date might involve going out to the theater or drive-in, creating a drive-in theater experience or staying in to watch a movie. Whatever the venue, movie dates are easily made romantic with a little planning and foresight.
Consider what movies both you and your date like. Romance is rooted in shared interests. For example, if you both enjoy horror movies, the romance is created by watching a horror film and clinging to each other during the scary parts.
Choose the venue for the movie. Venturing out to the theater or drive-in creates a sense of occasion. This venue also offers a dark and anonymous place, creating a romantic atmosphere. Watching a movie at home offers more intimacy and greater opportunities for snuggling.
Bring your date a thoughtful, movie-related gift. For example, if the movie is "Chocolat," bring your date a chocolate treat.
Provide snacks for the movie date. Sharing a bag or bowl of popcorn can be unintentionally romantic -- think of Lady and the Tramp sharing the spaghetti noodle. If you are watching a movie at home, consider serving appetizers and a bottle of wine.
