A Fresh Take on Movie Stars

For a fun family night under the stars, transform your backyard into your very own movie theatre!

There’s nothing like watching your favourite movie stars while relaxing under the stars.

Transforming your backyard into your very own outdoor movie theatre is easy!

To get started, figure out where you’re going to set up your screen and projector. A smooth wall or a well-ironed white sheet hung from a laundry line or tree can be used for a quick and easy screen.

You’ll want the screen as smooth as possible so if you’re using a sheet, pull it taut so that it doesn’t wrinkle. If you love to DIY, you can make a sturdy frame or go all out and purchase a portable screen or even an inflatable screen!

For sound, you can use your projector’s speakers or to liven things up, you can hook up some Bluetooth speakers for true cinema sound.

To create a comfortable stylish feel, spread out a few blankets and pillows, hang up a hammock and string up some outdoor lights for a relaxed ambiance.

Finally, turn things up a notch by setting up a popcorn station or serving a fun, sweet treat at “intermission” and decorate around the theme of the movie.

This fun and unique set-up is great for family movie nights, a romantic evening for two, a birthday party or watching your favourite sports team.

For an even more memorable night, set up a tent and enjoy an outdoor sleepover after the movie!
