With Memorial Day weekend set to kickoff the summer season in just a matter of days, event coordinators are planning outdoor film screenings to drag the locals off of their couches and onto beach towels and lawn cushions.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch published some tips for outdoor movie planners, and although some of the advice is geared toward those organizing smaller scale events, there are some takeaways that parks and recreation departments and other municipal organizations can use as they put the finishing touches on an outdoor film screening, including:
- Establishing the location of the screen long before the event
- Investing in a high-quality sound system
- Creating an appropriate seating area
- Alerting neighbors about the time and date of the screening
If event planners take these steps, their outdoor movie screening should be a rousing success.
“Although the number of drive-in movie theaters may be on the decline, that doesn’t have to keep movie buffs from enjoying a film with friends and family al fresco,” according to the Times-Dispatch. “Certain parks, municipal recreation centers and businesses host movie nights under the stars for large groups in the summertime.”
These are all issues that an experienced provider of inflatable screens will help you answer as you set up your outdoor movie. Whether it’s choosing the right equipment or setting up screens and taking them down on your behalf, these services providers are a valuable partner for any event organizer planning a screening with a large group of people.
