Lights, camera, action! It’s time to start planning your movie themed party. Since the release of the first silent film, movies have held a magical place in people’s lives. They transport you to different times and different places, sometimes even different worlds. You can produce a movie night to remember, with a little help from us. 

Start your production with our general movie theme. Decoration choices include movie premier decorating kits, paparazzi props, VIP entrance signs, and movie themed cutouts, among others. Tableware choices include a sophisticated black and gold design or a vibrant plates, cups and napkins with images of film reels, spotlights and stars and a clapboard-shaped dessert plate. Give each guest a VIP goody bag filled with personalized buttons, awards statues, VIP party passes, buttered popcorn jelly beans and other treats from our wide selection. Kids will love the movie camera pinata, which you can fill with sweets and small toys, available separately. Browse through our personalized items and cake supplies before you check out.  

Don’t limit this theme to kids’ birthday parties, it’s so much fun at an adult party too. It makes birthdays and anniversaries more glamourous and it adds some extra pizzazz to your annual Academy Awards watching party, especially if you include a floor runner and VIP backdrop. Take your school’s movie night up a notch with our themed decorations or add production value to your movie themed fundraiser.  

Prefer to produce a party based on a specific movie or series of films? We can help with that too with our many themes based on both live action and animated films. Use only supplies from one movie or mix and match with our general Hollywood theme or other movies. 

Disney characters including Winnie the Pooh, Alice in Wonderland, Cars, Finding Nemo, the Incredibles, Monsters Inc. and Toy Story are just some of your more popular selection. Superheroes, (including Avengers, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor, Spider-Man, Captain America, Superman, Batman v. Superman), animated films (like Angry Birds, Despicable Me, Shrek, Transformers, Trolls) and mega franchises such as Harry Potter and Star Wars are just as popular.

Produce and direct a blockbuster starring your guest of honor. With our help it is easy to plan and you won’t go over budget
