Outdoor movie parties are the perfect way to enjoy your favorite films under the stars. To make your event truly memorable, incorporating tents can be a game-changer, from protecting your equipment to creating a cozy atmosphere. In this blog, we’ll guide you through the process of hosting an amazing outdoor movie event that will have your guests talking for weeks.

Tidy Up the Area

First, you’ll want to prepare the space for your movie event. Clearing the area of any debris, branches, or rocks will create a comfortable environment for your guests. Setting up a tent can help define the space and keep the focus on the movie. For more tips on preparing for your outdoor event, check out this blog.

Create a Section for Snacks and Drinks

No movie party is complete without snacks and drinks! Set up a designated area for your guests to access during the event. Offer classic movie treats like popcorn and candy, but don’t be afraid to get creative. Try switching it up by offering flavored powders for popcorn, uniquely flavored sodas, and vintage candy.

Tip: You can also make your snacks fit the theme of the movie you’re watching!

Set Up Your Perfect Area

Next, arrange seating for your guests. Offer a mix of seating options, like chairs and beanbags, and consider having a blanket bin for added comfort. To set the mood, add some outdoor lights like fairy lights or lanterns.

Incorporating a tent into your setup can enhance the experience even more. A tent allows your guests to have space (as opposed to being confined to one room) while maintaining a cozy, protected atmosphere. Plus, it provides a perfect place to house your projector and sound equipment, shielding them from any unexpected weather.
