Whether you have a backyard or a (big) balcony, there is no excuse for not having an outdoor movie night this summer! And if you’re living in the US, why not have one this Saturday to finish off a glorious 4th of July celebration?
All you really need is some comfy seats and cushions, blankets, a white sheet to make the screen, a projector, a laptop and a speaker!
Hang a white sheet ( or even rent an inflatable screen if you have the budget !), set up a drinks and pop corn bar and when the sun goes down, the magic begins!
Our tips for the perfect movie night:
-Check the weather before you start planning anything
-Warn the neighbours about the noise (or better, invite them along)
-Beware of the cords from the laptop to the speaker and make sure that nobody can trip on them
– Wait for sunset to start the screening
-Why not have an intermission for drinks refuel?
-Check out our great setups, food and decoration ideas on our Pinterest board!
-Get some mosquito repellent! (you’ll thank me for this one)
-Make sure the movie is appropriate for your audience, especially if it involves kids.
Indeed the hardest part is to pick the perfect movie : one you’ll have previously converted to DVD with our ConvertXtoDVD or ConvertXtoVideo software! The great thing about ConvertXtoVideo is that you can pump up the volume with its integrated sound booster and make sure it will be adequate for outdoor viewing!
All of these titles can be downloaded with VSO Downloader (just click on them to access the streaming site) (yes I know, I keep saying this, and I will until I convince the world of what a great piece of software it is!! Oh, and did I mention it’s a FREE program ? Did I ? )
