If you're lucky enough to live in an area where the summer temps are finally dropping, it's the perfect time for an outdoor movie night.
You don't need to be incredibly tech-savvy to set up an enticing home theater. In fact, the hardest part of the evening will probably be getting everyone to decide on a movie. In addition to a movie projector -- we found one on Amazon that's surprisingly affordable -- you'll need a big screen, comfy chairs and a few other items to set the mood.
No need to wait around for a Saturday night or a birthday party to host outdoor movie nights. Might as well make the most of every day (or dusk) you're stuck at home, right?
We've pulled together the essentials for a great night "out," so grab the popcorn and start setting up your outdoor home theater for a backyard movie night.
You'll need seating to enjoy the movie, and ideally your chairs will be both comfortable and cute. Grab a few of these bean bag chairs from Amazon so you and your guests can lounge in style. You can also use a regular old beach chair or lawn chair or spread out picnic blankets to sit on -- just make sure they're thick enough.
