If you’re planning on staying local this summer, then you’ll want to have some summer fun planned. Why not host an outdoor movie night?
Get the family outdoors for some fresh air and watching a movie is a great way to make summer memories. Summer parties in the backyard are a must.
If you’re not sure where to start, here are some steps on how to host an outdoor movie night.
HOW TO HOST AN OUTDOOR MOVIE NIGHT
Pick Your Movie
This can be a hard one in our house. Pick a couple of movies that are age-appropriate and throw them in a jar to draw. You can check out 50 Movies all kids should watch before they are 12 which might help you make a decision if you’re not sure.
Set up your theater
When it comes to outdoor movie nights, a projector is a must. TOPVISION home projector includes 2*HDMI, 2*USB, VGA, AV, TF, and Audio output. It is compatible with TV Box, Chromebook, PC, Laptop, Tablet, Blue-ray DVD player, SD Card, USB Flash Drive, Video Games, Media players (Music, Pictures, Video, TXT), Smartphones.
If you don’t have a yard, you can project the movie onto the side of your house or garage. If that doesn’t work, then check out this TaoTronics Projector Screen with Stand.
This wrinkle-free screen takes 2 minutes to put together. It also has a carrying bag for storage.
Unless your projector has multiple built-in speakers, you’ll probably want to hook up an external speaker so all your friends and family can hear the movie.
AOMAIS GO Bluetooth Speakers portable speaker is a great option as it can connect with devices via Bluetooth or an audio jack and is battery operated, so you don’t have to worry about plugging it in. It’s also waterproof!
If your speakers or projector aren’t battery operated, make sure you have a few extension cords handy to reach from your closest outlet to the devices. Digital Energy offers a 6-outlet, 50-foot long power strip that would work well.
Make it comfortable
Utilize your new Outdoor Patio Furniture you purchased to make your backyard summer better than ever.
Grab an outdoor blanket to create a picnic-like environment on your lawn.
If you’re setting your movie night up on a driveway, blankets might not be enough cushion for your toosh-in. Instead, use your camping chairs or soccer practice chairs. Ask your friends to bring their own chairs as well.
Keep Mosquitos Away
If you attract mosquitos like we do, then you may want to try the Thermacell MR450 Armored Portable Mosquito Repellent. No Spray, Scent or Mess. Also, keep your Bug Bite Thing handy for when you do get a bite.
