How to Create the Perfect Outdoor Cinema in Your Garden


Culture and entertainment are very important aspects of every person’s life. Especially today, when there is so much bad news due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Men and women have to get away from all this negativity every once in a while and watching movies is one of the best ways to do it. Movies combine the two important aspects we mentioned earlier. This is exactly why they help people to put their minds at ease.

Watching a movie on your TV is fine, but it’s not as good as watching it at the cinema. Sadly, most of the movie theaters are closed these days due to the Coronavirus situation. So, what can you, as a cinema enthusiast, do? Well, you can make your own outdoor cinema. All you need is some good will and, of course, a garden. Here’s how to do it.

Choose the Perfect Location for Your Screen

When it comes to the outdoor cinema, positioning your screen should be your top priority. If you want to organize the perfect outdoor entertainment for yourself and your guests, you have to know where to put the screen. You don’t want wind or rain to ruin your movie night. Therefore you must keep your screen sheltered.

Also, street lighting can make it difficult for you and your guests to enjoy the movie. Therefore, try to put your screen away from the light. Finding the perfect location for your screen means that your audience will be able to enjoy the movie just as they would in a certified cinema.

Invest in Good Equipment

In order for people to have a good time at your outdoor cinema and appreciate the movie, you must have good equipment. Without a high-quality screen, projector, and sound system, you simply can’t have a good outdoor cinema. However, good equipment usually costs a bit more. Therefore, you will have to invest some money in it. But, if you are a movie enthusiast and you want to have your own cinema in the garden, it’s definitely worth it.

Make Sure You and Your Guests are Comfortable

People love going to the cinema because there they can watch the movie in perfectly comfortable conditions. If you want people to come to your cinema, you must make sure they feel comfortable in your garden. Therefore, get cozy seats for one or two people and don’t put them close together. This way, your guests will have their personal space and they will be able to see the screen.

You Should Have Finger Food and Drinks

One of the best things about cinema is the variety of snacks you can choose from. This is why you should know that your guests will expect some snacks during the movie. Of course, you can go for the classic option and offer your audience some popcorn and soda. However, if you want to be classy, you should definitely acquire some finger food and cocktails. People love to eat snacks and drink while watching a movie, therefore if you provide them with delicious food and tasty drinks, they will surely come back for another screening.

Choose the Right Movies

When it comes to the repertoire, you, as the organizer, have the final say regarding the movies. However, you should also think about your audience and their preferences. Your guests are your friends and if you want them to come back to your cinema, you must respect their taste. Choose the first movie yourself and listen to the audience’s comments after the screening. This will help you to choose the perfect movie next time. This way you will earn the trust of your guests and they will definitely come to your next screening.


These are difficult and complicated times. Covid-19 pandemic has changed our lives and daily routines, and we have to get used to it. We have to get creative when it comes to socializing and entertainment. Creating an outdoor cinema in your garden is one of the best and safest ways to connect with your close friends and enjoy the culture. We hope these tips will help you to create the perfect garden cinema and enjoy quality time with your buddies.
