Join the cast of “Clue” for a silly and spooky show based on the classic board game. Everyone gathers at a dinner party full of mystery and intrigue when the Who’s Who and the Who-Dun-It questions begin. As fingers are pointed at each person, the body count rises and the antics get goofy. Will they ever figure out what happened? Will you? Watch this fun flick with your family and friends, try out these fun activities and you’re sure to PIECE together one fun Tweens & Teens Movie Night!
Wear While Watching:
*Invite your family or guests to dress up as the characters of the movie: Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mrs. Peacock, Mr. Green, Professor Plum, Miss Scarlett, even the Butler, Maid and Cook could be included.
*If you want to create your own Mr. & Mrs. Name tags of your own. Use the names of colors or animals so that everyone has a unique pseudonym for the evening. Encourage everyone to dress up to match their fake name.
Home Theater Décor:
*Label each room as a room from the movie/game (Kitchen; study; conservatory; hall; dining room; billiard room; lounge; library; and ballroom.)
*Use the candlestick, rope, lead pipe, wrench, revolver, and knife as inspirations for decorating. Hang up some rope as swag around the table, chairs or napkins, get silver straws for everyone’s drinks that look like lead pipes, have candlesticks all around the house, and more.
*If you want to serve a movie meal, you’ll want to have Shark Fin soup (your favorite soup will do, just call it Shark Fin soup), Monkey Brains (or maybe a cauliflower casserole or pull-a-part monkey bread), drinks, fruit, and dessert. Be sure to ring a Gong when dinner is ready and include name tags by each plate.
*Serve “poisoned” drinks by mixing up your favorite juice or punch then serving it in cups that reveal that they really just drank… poison!
Movie Inspired Adventures:
*After watching this movie you’re sure to want to play the board game Clue. If you don’t have the game, you could always play an interactive version by moving around your own house with the cards with suspects, rooms and weapons on them, just like the board game. If you aren’t sure how to play, just read through the instructions here. If you don’t want to do it just like the game, have a scavenger hunt with your own weapons, suspects and rooms… or any spooky items. This link shows some fun ideas for a Clue party and scavenger hunt.
*Consider throwing a “How to Host a Murder” party. There are books, games and lots of information online about putting one together, whether you follow along with the Clue theme or not.
*Put together Goody bags for your guests. Some items you could include as gifts and favors include: travel size Clue or other board or card games, skeleton keys, matches, pretend weapons, magnifying glasses, detective notebooks and other super sleuth items.
