Outdoor Movie: Poolside Party and Beachcomber Drinks

Outdoor Movies Make your next get together a splash by screening a classic beach movie poolside paired with a tiki-inspired cocktail. Open Air Cinema's inflatable outdoor movie screens can be setup easily and safely next to a swimming pool, with rear projection capabilities to keep your equipment a safe and dry distance away from the water. It is also easy to connect to your laptop or DVD player.

Choose Classic Outdoor Movies for the Beach

There are many great beach movie classics depending on your taste.В  Clear forerunners of the 1960s genre are the Beach Party series, including Bikini Beach Blanket Bingo, Muscle Beach Party Beach, and the strange outlier, Ghost in the Invisible Bikini. Early films in the series star Frankie Avalon having easy fun in the sun hijinks. These movies did not lead to any Oscar nominations but they were huge hits for those looking for good clean fun with PG-party hopping and barely risquГ© full bikinis.В  Towards the end of the series the plots varied widely and even away from the beach with Ghost in the Invisible Bikini, a wild detective caper.В  The Beach Party series was also responsible for showcasing future music legends such as The Beach Boys, Stevie Wonder, Little Richard, The Supremes and the Animals.

Make A Themed Cocktail For Your Outdoor Movie

A Beachcomber cocktail is a great pairing with your outdoor movie as a rum version of a fruity Cosmopolitan. Combine in a cocktail shaker 2 oz. white rum, 1 oz. Cointreau, 1 oz. fresh lime juice, a splash of cherry juice and simple syrup and shake well.В  Top each drink in a maraschino cherry and tiny umbrella in a festive tulip glass to complete the look.В  It is possible to make a virgin Beachcomber by replacing rum and Cointreu with grapefruit juice and orange juice, it will be just as delicious.

Decorations for your Outdoor Movie Party

Complete the look of your party with some simple decorations.В  Lay out large beach blankets on the deck or the grass for people to sit on and hold down the corners with seashells. Enjoy your fun in the sun!
