Movie night is a weekly tradition in our house, it's something the whole family looks forward to during the week. A time to put away the phones and other devices and get lost in movie magic for a couple of hours. So today I wanted to help inspire your next family movie night and I enlisted the help of my son Ashton to recommend his top 5 favourite movies as well as a yummy Rocky Road popcorn recipe:
