Movie Night on a Spectrum


IN PERSON

Standards
  • Limit RSVPs via email, text, FB group, Google form, flyer.

  • Require masks.

  • Provide a hand sanitizing station and post signs reminding people to wash or sanitize their hands.

  • If you’re not handing things directly to guests with gloves on, have signs encouraging to “please only handle your own food/items.”

  • Have a sign or one coordinator at the door to address attendance limit and share “we can’t wait to hang out with you at our next event!” for all those who didn’t RSVP.

  • Social Distancing “dots” to encourage six-foot spacing.

Specifics
  • Consider a location where you can socially distance guests - pool area, green space, parking deck, etc.

  • Decide between a drive-in or separated seating.

  • Set up a projector and screen - you can find one here and here or get crafty and make one yourself!

  • Display a table of pre-packaged snacks and drinks

  • Want to take it even further?

    • Consider a popcorn machine (reach out to your program director for referrals)

    • Set up a “photo booth” with props
