55 Movies from the 80's for a Movie Night In

Some of the best movies came out of the 80's. We’ve been trying to share movies with our kids that we enjoyed when we were kids. Of course, some of the movies we enjoyed are from much earlier and some from the 90's too; but with this list, I really wanted to focus solely on the 80's. 55 movies from the 80's, the 80's, entertainment in the 80's, vintage entertainment, vintage movies, 80's movies, list of 55 moviesSo many fun things to remember about the 80's, like the pink high top Punky Brewster shoes I coveted for a really long time but never got because they didn’t make my size.

This past weekend, we enjoyed a Wilderness Family marathon; I was a little disappointed I couldn’t include it on my list since it was made in the 70's. But I had to mention it anyway. This list of 55 movies includes family movies, date night movies, kids’ movies, etc. It’s not a comprehensive list, but it’s a list of movies that we’ve either enjoyed or want to watch again. You can look all of these movies up on IMDb and find more info. I hope you enjoy!
