HOW TO HOST A SUMMER MOVIE NIGHT:
PICK A DATE, PICK A MOVIE
Choose a night that works with your schedule. Make sure it’s a time when staff and volunteers
will be available to help. Once you’ve set the date (or dates), visit
through the film library to find a title that’s just right for your event.
ORDER THE MOVIE LICENSING
If you’re showing a film in your church, make sure you have the appropriate license. An Outreach
Films license allows your church unlimited showings for a full year and lets you use the title and
images in your Summer Movie Night promotions. Each license also includes discussion questions
and ready-to-customize promotional resources for print and online use.
Want to keep things simple? That’s cool. Or go all-out with a theme night and party. It’s up to you.
The important thing is to decide what you’re going to do, what supplies you’ll need, and who’s there
to help. The Movie License includes an event planning guide with suggestions, so be sure to read it!
Use the promotional tools provided with your Movie License, order invitations online or create your
own. Give church members copies of flyers, bulletin inserts, and tickets to share with their friends.
Ask local businesses to hang a poster on their community bulletin boards. Or visit homes in a six-
block radius of your church and hand out invitations. And don’t forget to post it on your web or social
A movie night is an easy church event, so enjoy it. Greet guests, grab a snack, and take in a few
minutes of the film. It’s ok to sit back and smile!
WHEN THE GAME
Inspired by a true story,
the Game Stands Tall
, tells the
remarkable journey of legendary
football coach Bob Ladouceur
(Jim Caviezel), who took the De
La Salle High School Spartans
from obscurity to a 151-game
winning streak that shattered all
records for any American sport
and along the way taught his
team about the value of purpose
and significance over the glory
of titles and streaks.
