A Night At The Movies With Gracewell

Hey Film Buffs,

By now you must know I am a total film nerd. There is nothing more I love than snuggling up with some popcorn and catching up with a film. Movie nights are the most fun when you share them with the ones you love. That's just what we did too. One of the best things about children is teaching them about all the awesome things you loved when you were little so when we had the pleasure of a visit from Me K's son we decided to school him in the ways of pure classics. My favourite film growing up was Labyrinth and with the recent passing of the legendary Bowie it seemed so much more important to share.

No good movie night is complete without snacks and we were spoilt with popcorn, retro sweets, pizza and fizzy pop. There's something about watching a movie and sharing food that just fills me with love. 

J was so excited by the puppets in the labyrinth and we sang along to the songs which even he was singing by the end. Although secretly I think he just loved the big of eternal stench it was really magical to watch him get shocked and wonder if Sarah would ever get to the castle.

We had such a lovely evening and sharing something as simple as a film and some snacks can really brighten someones day and bring people together, Gracewell run care homes around Birmingham and as part of the important work they do to help residents maintain a happy life within care they run regular movie nights which they can invite their families. Nights like this are so important and with your help this charity can keep helping residents and keep spirits high with fun entertainment for all,

What films would you watch on a movie night?
