Using Garage Doors as Movie Screens

Do you want to organize an outdoor movie evening this summer? Films that are shown under the stars can be an excellent family activity, or a main event for an evening slumber party for kids.

Kits for outdoor cinema that include an inflatable screen is expensive. Because an outdoor movie could be a one-time event, why would you break the budget. You can enjoy just as much fun on a budget cost. Garage doors can make an excellent movie screen for impromptu. You can put together everything else you need with very little money.

Here’s everything you need for a successful film evening.

A garage door is the perfect backdrop for a film screen. If the door is light gray or white, you can directly project to the wall. There’s no better way to do it! If your door is dim then you should put a white, king-sized flat bedsheet on top.

Projector, DVD player and Speakers

You’ll require a projector, speaker and a device to play the film. A projector of the highest quality is costly, but you may be able to lease an equipment at a library in the public sector or a school. If you are planning on frequently using a projector you should consider purchasing one. They are available in a variety of prices.

A majority of people have all the other equipment needed to enjoy a movie including speakers, Laptop or DVD player. If you’re planning on streaming movies from your laptop, ensure that your Wi-Fi signal is reaching the garage.

Check the setup throughout the day. You’ll be able to get to the nearest store if it became apparent that you require an unrelated cord or another item of equipment.

Provide Creature Comforts

You can make your guests feel comfortable by creating a welcoming driveway by adding comfortable seating. Place a rug on the ground and pads, if guests are sitting on the floor. Set up cushions, comfy chairs or even a sofa. Sprinkle plenty of blankets on case the evening air turns cold.

Make low-level lighting available to aid people when they stroll in darkness. You could use a few solar lamps or string lights. Have a flashlight in your bag also.

A movie night wouldn’t be full without snacks. Make the concession stand and offer various snacks and drinks.

Talk to Your Neighbors

Before the movie starts, let neighbors know about your plan and ask them in. It’s necessary to wait until dark before showing the movie. Be considerate. Make sure you don’t play the film late or at a loud volume. Pick a film suitable for everyone.
