Movies to keep you entertained this Easter long weekend.
The Easter long weekend is a much-anticipated holiday, but if you have children this anticipation could be mixed with a bit of dread. Finding something to entertain the kids for one afternoon is hard enough, let alone four days. But thanks to the wonders of cinema you can get the kids into the Easter spirit while giving yourself chance to rest for two hours (or even longer if you decide to ‘treat’ them to a movie marathon!)
You might even just want to watch an Easter-themed movie yourself, curling up with your partner and resting your chocolate-filled stomachs. So read our guide to find the best Easter movies and products to help make your home-watching experience more enjoyable.
What to look for in an Easter movie
Easter movies should be easy enough to choose once you know why you’re getting them. If you’re picking a movie for the family to watch over the long weekend, perhaps an uplifting comedy or animated movie? If you are having a night with your partner, maybe a comedy or something relaxing to get you into the holiday mood? If you are getting the movie as a gift, then think about what the person you’re giving it to might like.
Your best bet is to have a browse online and find a title that’s right for you. You can also read some movie reviews online to make sure you’re picking a quality flick!
