Learn how to throw an outdoor movie night in your own backyard!
Summer is a time where memories are made with friends and family. Full of fun, games, and time spent outdoors, summer is the perfect time to host an outdoor movie night. Make the most out of the remaining days of summer (and beautiful weather), by learning how to throw your very own patio movie night!
Step 1: Pick the Perfect Screen.
Enjoy your favorite flick up on the big screen! It’s no secret that you’ll need a place to screen your movies, however, you have a few options. Whether you choose to go a simple route and screen the film on a blank wall, rent a screen from a local vendor, or test out your DIY skills by building your own screen, choose the option that best fits your needs. That way, you have the perfect atmosphere for you guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy the film!
Step 2: Create Ample Seating.
Transform your patio into a cozy, relaxed space with plenty of seating. Get creative and work with your patio space to find the best seating arrangement for your outdoor movie screening. Mix it up and rearrange your patio furniture so that all of your guests have a view of the screen. For extra seating, don’t be afraid to use the floor! Set up a sea of blankets complete with colorful cushions and bean bags to give your movie night a bit of bohemian style.
Step 3: Bring the Concession Stand to Your Backyard.
What’s a movie night without a few snacks? Dazzle your guests with a concession table full of treats fit for a Hollywood premier! Update movie theater staples with more gourmet versions. Offer a selection of flavored popcorn like white cheddar jalapeño or sea salt caramel, and set up your very own candy station where your guests can make their own goodie bag. It’s a delicious twist on a movie theater classic.
