Throwing a perfect outdoor movie event for your friends and family is exciting. But how do you get started. I will try to use my experience over the last several years to give you some hints. The first thing you should do is pick a date and location. Give yourself enough time to make sure the equipment (projector, screen, speakers, blu-ray player, etc) is available. Also equally important is to make sure you provide sufficient notification to all the friends and family you plan to invite. The location can be your backyard or any community space as long as there is an explicit permission to host the movie night there. The important part here is to make sure you obtain a license to watch the film of your choice. Here at outdoor cinema events we strive to make the part of getting all the equipment rented, delivered and set up as easy as possible. We have amazing screens both front and rear projection, both indoor and outdoor, high end HD projectors, great sound systems, blu-ray players and all the cabling. All you would need to do is simply give us a call. As for the rest your creativity can take flight.
Use evite.com or a similar service, which make creating wonderful invitation and sending them to folks via an email both free and incredibly simple.
Alternatively you can send letters the old school way, which is really amazing. Here are some great ideas.
Here is a perfect place to let your creativity do its magic. I recommend pinterest for some great ideas. Just remember the comfort for yourself and your guests including little ones is the most important. Plenty of pillows and blankets not only do that, but also create a very aesthetic environment that everyone will love. Also remember you will be showing your movies at night so it may get a little colder than it was during the day, so again remember to stay worm.
Stay with the classic popcorn, candy and soda or be creative. It is really up to you. I have seen beautifully decorated tables with several types of popcorn, a pop-corn bar if you will, various types of candy, and stunning cases of root beer, and real soda pop all with old school movie themed decorations. This gives you that wonderful nostalgic feeling when going to the movies was so much more than just sitting in front of the Netflix. Here again Pinterest can be a great source of inspiration.
Also movies is not the only thing you can watch outside. Sporting events, family slide shows, gaming nights, karaoke nights are amazing to share with friends and family on a worm night outside or inside if the weather doesn't cooperate. As long as everyone is together, celebrating and creating those lasting memories that means we are all doing exactly what we are supposed to be doing. Here at outdoor cinema events we have a passion of making planning and setting up those wonderful movie themed events that much easier for all of our customers. Please do not hesitate to give us a call @ 925-360-1285 and we would love to help you. We serve nearly the entire SF Bay Area, so no matter where you are, the chances are you are within our reach.
