Summer is here and we are ready for some summer outdoor fun! This week we will give you tips to create the perfect outdoor (or indoor if you really have to) movie evening. Host an event with your family and friends or just a romantic night for two. Here are some fresh summer movie magic tips.

The Projector

The first thing you will need for your movie night is a projector, of course! You also don’t need to break the bank when it comes to shopping for a projector. Here are our top picks for movie magic projectors:

The Screen

So, you will need something to watch the movie on right? Now here is where a little bit of DIY goes a long way. You can use a wall (if your walls are painted in a light colour) and project onto the surface, creating that real old school drive-in feel. Don’t have a wall? Use a plain light coloured or white bed sheet and put it up against a wall or between two trees, creating the perfect DIY movie screen.

Too much effort? You can buy a foldable screen instead!
