Backyard movie nights offer a fun and unique way to enjoy the outdoors along with your loved ones, and it only takes a few easy steps to set up according to your budget.
Assuming your lawn is freshly manicured and the weather is lovely, here’s how to transform your yard into the perfect movie viewing area just in time for summer:
Setup the Outdoor Screen
To view your movies outdoors, you need a portable movie screen, which comes in various sizes for different viewing experiences, so be sure to select one that suits your needs. As a general rule, you want to select a screen large enough that the entire viewing audience can see clearly for the most comfortable experience. If you don’t have a projector, you can simply use a blank sheet or wall to project your movies.
Next, you’ll want to select the location in your yard that you want to transform into a movie theatre, and then prop up the screen.
Bring Out the Portable Speakers
You will also need speakers to produce theatre sound for your flicks. If your space doesn’t already have exterior speakers, simply bring out a pair of Bluetooth speakers to fill your space with movie effects.
Setup Comfortable Seating
Comfortable seating in your yard will also be key for your guests. Bean bag chairs and lawn furniture make for comfortable seating because they conform to the person’s shape, helping them stay seated throughout the screening.

Decorate With Warm, Snuggly Throws
Adding snuggly throws to your space will help make your movie night even better as it enables your guests to curl up under the warm covers as temperatures drop (something we all wish we could do at the theatre), so be sure to include a few incredibly soft blankets in with your seating for that added touch.

Setup a Snack Buffet
The best thing about creating your own movie night set up at home is it enables you to enjoy all the theatre snacks (and more) you want but at a fraction of the price.
So set up a buffet of your favorite candy and snacks, and bring out the popcorn popper along with the popcorn buckets to complete the movie theatre feel.
Now that you see how easy it is to transform your backyard into your own theatre, you might find yourself scheduling movie nights more often as part of your family’s summer memories, which is sure to impress
