The summer and fall are the perfect seasons for an outdoor movie night, and you don't need to be incredibly tech-savvy to set up an enticing home theater. Whether you want to host a family movie night, outdoor movie party, or just an event to get your friends together, we've gathered everything you need for the perfect movie night.
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) this August, right? With Labor Day quickly arriving, September and the fall season's cooler nights will be here faster than we know.
We've pulled together the essentials for a great night "out," so grab the popcorn and start setting up your outdoor home movie 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.
