Documentary Movies Date Night

A Date Night with Documentary Movies 

We’ve started a new series of date nights that we are SO excited about: A Year of Movie Night Dates! {Psst… If you haven’t heard about it yet, you’ll definitely want to see what it’s all about!} This documentary movie themed date is #9 of TWELVE at-home movie nights that are themed on different movies genres! Pick out one of your favorite, classic documentary movies, or a try out a brand new one, and grab the popcorn. We’ve made this date adaptable to use with any of the films in the documentary genre. Just staring at a screen doesn’t always feel like the best way to get closer to your sweetie, but this is MUCH more than a typical movie night! Use our activities, along with the best documentary movies, and you have an easy date where you can relax AND connect with your spouse. So, are you ready to take your movie night to the next level?? You can do it all from the comfort of your own couch!!

We love documentary movies! This would be the perfect date to stay at home relaxing, but also have some fun! #documentarymovies #moviedatenight

We enlisted the help of our talented graphic designer, Courtney of Paperelli Designs to help us create fun printables to fit every movie style. She rocked it and THEY.ARE.SO.AWESOME! Whether you are all about that documentary life or just a casual viewer, the printable activities will make your movie night WAY more fun!
Once you’ve picked out your flick, we’ve done the rest of the work for you! Just print off the following printables to enhance your documentary movies experience.

Included in this Documentary Movie Date Night:

  • Movie Envelope Cover
  • Digital Text Invitation
  • Documentary Themed Activity

Here’s a closer look into all the printables:

Glue it to the front and stick all of your Documentary Date Night printables inside. That way it’s all in one place and ready for you whenever you are.

Use the documentary love note as a perfect digital text invitation for your spouse! Just download and SEND! Then include the details (day, time, place, any hints) in a follow-up text.
