Indeed, Summer is definitely the time of the year where we tend to enjoy more sun and more silent nights. This is also the perfect time to go out camping, do outdoor activities or enjoy a good outdoor cinema.
Well, setting up a cinema space in your backyard can be made easy and less expensive than you have actually thought of, especially if you’re up for a little DIY. With that said, if you are a DIY addict with a little creative, then take our tips on how to create your own summer outdoor cinema right at your backyard.
Of course, you have to make sure that you get the perfect white wall or white cloth for your cinema. Basically, you don’t really have to purchase an expensive white projector screen fr it. Alternatively, making your own DIY outdoor movie screen is an option for doing it on the cheap, not to mention a fun project for the family.
Basically, you will need a projector for a more high-quality movie projection on your white screen. The projector you use should be strong, especially if you’ll be contending with street lamps, porch lights, and another ambient lighting, but it doesn’t need to be top-of-the-line; a projector with 2,000 lumens should do it. The resolution isn’t quite as critical for screening outdoor movies, so 720p is fine. You should be able to find decent models for well under USD 200, but if you’re lucky, you can score one second-hand for less too.
Well if you’re planning to do it over the backyard then it is also best to prepare a good lounging area. Skip the tables and chairs, why not go for tents or maybe you can make use of your hunting accessory, your best ground blinds perhaps.
