That’s exactly why you should host a backyard movie bash this summer! Combining the outdoors with family and friends, you can easily watch fabulous flicks in your own backyard with our great tips and tricks. From DIY movie screens to popcorn bars brimming with yummy kernels to, of course, some tasty cinema-ready cocktails, we’re bringing you everything you need to throw a perfect outdoor movie bash. Call some friends over, pick up the newest released movie, and sit back and enjoy the summer night as you should!
Outdoor Movie Screen
First and foremost (and perhaps the most important thing!), you will need an oversized screen to view your fabulous flick! You can go old school with a plain white sheet and projector set-up, or grab an Airblown Inflatable Outdoor Movie Screen ($169.99 at target.com), which is large enough that there won’t be a bad seat in the house! Not only is the inflatable screen lightweight, but it comes with a storage bag to help you safely stow it between outdoor movie socials. Snatch up the screen or make your own, and start the summer viewing parties pronto!
