Ah, movie night; sitting down around the TV with popcorn and good people to watch a good (or sometimes so bad it?s good) movie or two while enjoying the company. Now your Sims can have their own movie night with this event at any residential house. There are several relevant, themed goals to accomplish and cool prizes for a successful event. Be sure to read the ?tips for a successful event? section further down on this page. Be aware that this event can be a little difficult to get the gold reward but I like it that way. I don?t like events that are super easy and you achieve gold too early in the event. I want to really feel like I accomplished something and with this event, you do!

CURRENT VERSION:
v1.24 - Updated November 12, 2021 - I fixed several coding errors that may have been affecting this mod’s functionality with the latest patches.

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL EVENT:
To have a successful movie night, you will need the following items to satisfy some of the event goals in addition to some kind of TV: popcorn popper and coffee maker. Remember to make sure your host Sim watches at least one movie in its entirety in order for certain social interactions to appear which are needed to satisfy goals.

PACKS REQUIRED:
Movie Hangout SP

EVENT GOALS:
Here are the many goals you can accomplish to earn points for this event:


EVENT REWARDS:
Here are the three rewards you can win for having a successful party:


Additional Credits:
I created this event mod using the Mod Constructor v4 by Zerbu. I want to thank Sresla and Kuttoe from the Zerbu Discord channel for helping me troubleshoot some problems I had while creating this event. I also utilized Sims 4 Studio for several edits so thank you to them as well!

I've tried this, and I can't figure out where the "Yay for movies!" interaction might be. Or is it describing something that I just can't figure out?

Never mind, just figured it out. Got to Gold, but just barely in time before the event ended. This really is a very challenging party!

Unfortunately, it doesn't count towards the Party aspiration. I'm sure there's nothing you can do about that, but it's kind of annoying that EA didn't take this sort of thing into consideration.

I'm glad you were able to figure it out! I hope you enjoyed it. I always love a challenge!

I'll look into the party aspiration's code and see if there's anything I can fiddle with to make it count. Like you said, it's doubtful I'll be able to do anything, but I still want to take a look.

Would be great if we could have movie night at a venue so that there can be trips to the movie theater. Mine are usually bars or cafes
