Spare time activities are as various and different as we, people, are. Well, a very common way of spending the free time we have – supported by an ever evolving movie industry – is, as suggested so far, watching movies. Comedies, dramas, serials, they all add relaxation, smiles and food for thought to our daily lives. Not to say of disconnecting us from work, family and study responsibilities. Now, if you have a soft spot for movies, TV shows or any other sort of moving pictures that need a screen, you might want to check the lines below to get a few ideas about the things you need to do when getting a backyard movie screen.
With summer unfolding and the heat driving us outdoors, a great way to enjoy your favorite movies or shows while letting yourself caressed by the warm pleasant summer nights air is to watch your movies out of doors. It’s no longer something out of the extraordinary when talking about open space cinemas. They’ve come to be synonym to summer activities. Well, if you want that sort of thing in the comfort of your own space, then you can simply opt for a backyard movie screen.
Depending on your budget and preferences, you can buy such a product and thus enjoy your favorite actors, movies or TV shows right in your backyard. The great great great thing nowadays is that if you can’t afford buying such a screen, you can rent one. Inflatable movie screens, projectors and sound systems rentals that will help you turn your backyard into an open air cinema are very popular these days.
Setting up your own open air cinema is not that difficult. Once you’ve made sure your screen is there, search for big pillows, sleeping bags or blankets (this experience is supposed to be about relaxing and pleasing your senses with a high quality movie; so, nothing fancy). Set them around your green space so that everybody can see very well what’s happening on the screen.
If your budget is not that very much of a generous guy these days and a new backyard movie screen is out of your possibility, you can simply use a white sheet and you’ll still get quality. And that’s even cheaper than rentals. The must-have here is, of course, the movie projector and sound equipment. Nothing fancy here either, though. You can go for a projector used for project presentations. There are various options regarding these devices, too. Pick the one that suits your needs and bucks best. Or if you have a friend working in an office where such products are used, borrow one and he’ll get extra popcorn.
Now, all you need to enjoy what a backyard screen movie can do, is friends, some popcorn, a good movie and the stars above. As simple as that!
