How to Make a Movie Date Romantic

For lovers of the big and small screen, nothing is more romantic than cuddling up to watch a good movie.
Create your own drive-in theater with your laptop and a secluded parking spot.Create your own drive-in theater with your laptop and a secluded parking spot.
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.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Bring your date a thoughtful, movie-related gift.
For example, if the movie is "Chocolat," bring your date a chocolate treat.

Step 4

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.
