How to easily DIY your outdoor cinema

Transform your backyard into an outdoor movie theater and create unforgettable memories during your summer evenings. Summer is the perfect time to gather with your loved ones and host movie nights. With a great movie choice, friends, and a cozy atmosphere, fun is granted. What a great idea for your next project, right?

Now, you are probably wondering how much time this project requires and how it is done.

Firstly, take some time to find a suitable place where you will set up the theater.

When choosing a place for your home theater, there are several crucial factors to consider. It would be great to find a spot that is sheltered from wind and rain and free of dampness. Proper lighting is also key – you will want to avoid any reflection that will diminish the quality of the picture. Lastly, you will need a blank wall to project the image onto. To ensure optimal visibility during movie projection, our recommendation is to paint the wall with FASAKRIL Wall and Facade Paint. This high-quality dispersion paint is perfect for exterior wall surfaces as it creates a pure white surface that is resistant to atmospheric influences and UV radiation. With FASAKRIL Paint for walls and facades, your wall will not only be nicely visible during movie projection but also well protected.

If you are unable to repaint the wall, you can use a white fabric as a canvas instead. Measure the dimensions of the fabric and then measure the area where you want to hang it. The next step is to mark the spots where the ends of the fabric need to be attached. When hanging the canvas, do not forget to tighten it so that the quality of the picture is as good as possible. In case you don’t have a wall to project a movie on, you always have the option of buying a projector screen. Once you have secured the surface for the film projection, the last thing is to get a projector. If you don’t have it in a storeroom, basement, or attic, you can easily find a suitable model in specialized stores for digital equipment.

For a cozy home cinema experience, it is essential to consider comfortable seating such as pillows, lounge chairs, mattresses, or a swing. Depending on what you have available in your home, we believe that even plain old folding chairs with the addition of cushions can be very comfortable. However, if you decide to use old furniture for your home theater, it is important to consider appropriate protection for exterior furniture. If your choice is wooden furniture, we recommend using DEKORIN Top Wood Stain with the addition of wax, for long-term protection and decoration. But if you opt for metal furniture, the great choice for protection and decoration is DURLIN Wood and Metal Enamel. During summer evenings, it is always a good idea to be prepared with blankets in case the temperature drops. To enhance the atmosphere, consider adding candles or a case of flowers. Snacks are a must-have during movie time, and if you have the space, a grill is a great option. Once everything is set up, find a cozy spot, choose an interesting movie, and relish the stunning night sky.
