Not every family likes movies, but most do. For families
who enjoy movies, this is something a whole family could do
Box Office: no movie is free, so before the movies begin,
each family member must "pay for their ticket"
by putting a set amount of money (e.g., $2/person) into
the family jackpot. At the end of the day/night, each family
member will have an opportunity to win this money.
Snack Bar: the family kitchen should be well stocked ahead
of time with large amounts of popcorn, soda, candy, fruits,
Feature Presentation: movies can be selected in any way
the family chooses (e.g., allow every family member to select
their favorite movie or select movies around a theme that
everyone in the family will enjoy; for example, comedy movies
or movies about animals).
Family Jackpot: after the movies are over, the family can
have make-it-yourself ice cream sundaes with all the fixings
and quiz each other on the movies. Going from one to another
in a rotation, each family member can ask the rest some
trivia question(s) from each movie. Whoever gets the most
right answers wins the family jackpot (i.e., the "ticket"
How will this activity promote the parent-teen relationship?

unselfishness can be taught as each member compromises with
Spending time around the table (after the movies are done)
is something many families don't do. Have fun with it!
Maybe your family will enjoy this so much you could schedule
another movie marathon.
A unique twist . . .
In order to develop a sense of teamwork among family members,
make a rule that no one can help themselves to food, but someone
else must always get it for them. Some simple rules could
be laid down that would ensure no one would miss any part
of the movie by doing this; for instance, if someone wants
a refill, the movie must be paused or it must be done during
an official "intermission" for the whole family.
