Backyard Home Theater Systems

Tips for the Best Outdoor Theaters

  • Invite your neighbors, or at least inform them that there will be life size images in your backyard and maybe some extra noise.
  • Do not charge admission without permission of the movie distributor. Though tempting, it is against the law. See your local regulations.
  • Backyard events will be best if started around dusk (just like at the drive-in).
  • Keep power cords out of the way as much as possible.
  • Beware of inclement weather.
  • Keep electronics away from pools, BBQs and your neighbor’s dog.
  • Turn off your sprinkler system before setting up.
  • Remember: your projector is not a coaster
  • Consult your projector owner’s manual for specifications on outdoor use.
