Movie Lovers, We Found The Perfect App For You


With 2018 drawing to a close, this year has marked another resounding success for the movie industry.

We’ve had Marvel galore in Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther, we were finally gifted the long-awaited return of our beloved Incredibles and Hereditary terrified anyone who dared watch.

As film producers step up their game, it means the classic movie marathon must be taken to a whole new level.

The key to any great film night relies pretty heavily on you and your mates being gathered in a room together. It’s kind of integral to the whole thing.

In this day and age, most of our social interactions take place online. The ever-growing advancements of technology have taken away our need to speak face-to-face.

What if we used the power of film to bring back that sense of companionship though? An old-fashioned gathering of friends that once upon a time, brought us so many memories and laughs?

Reelhost is looking to re-spark those social interactions through a mutual love of film.

The premise of the app is simple, host a movie night and invite fellow movie buffs to join you in a glamorous screening in your own front room.

Using Reelhost, users can search for movie sessions that are happening nearby, picking whichever tickles their fancy. From classic horrors, to corny rom-coms, who are we to judge?

Users can then break the ice by entering a group chat, planning the important stuff like who will be on snack duty? How much of a dreamboat Ryan Gosling is in Crazy Stupid Love?

Hosts can then set the rules of the gathering, things like ‘phones on silent’ and ‘mid movie snack breaks.

After attending a session, guests can review their host and recommend them to other users, allowing you to build a reputation of the hostess with the mostess.

Watching movies will forever remain one of the nation’s favourite pastimes. The average Briton watches 72 movies a year, so why not make a few of them social occasions?

Perhaps you’ve just moved into your student halls and are looking to meet some new faces. Hosting a movie night can be a great alternative to a night out during Fresher’s, offering a chance to meet like-minded people nearby.

Why not give Reelhost a go and download it today?
