5 Reasons Why to Choose an Outdoor Movie Screen Over an Indoor Screen

There's quite a few reasons to go with an outdoor movie screen over an indoor theater system. We've outlined just a few of them below. Make sure to contact us today by filling out our online contact form if you have any questions about Open Air Cinema products, or if you'd like to place an order for an Open Air outdoor theater screen or system give us a call today.

#1: An outdoor movie screen can be used outdoors and indoors

The great thing about an Open Air Cinema outdoor movie screen is that it can be used both outdoors and indoors! Although some indoor screens can be used outdoors, they often aren't stable enough to handle wind gusts, and thus will blow over and could potentially break as soon as a slight breeze comes along. But with an Open Air Cinema outdoor movie screen, you'll get the best of both worlds and can setup your movie screen in virtually any location. As long as you have enough room for the footprint and the height of your Open Air inflatable screen, you can set it up indoors or out.

#2 You can entertain more guests with an outdoor movie screen

No matter how large your indoor theater may be, you can always entertain more community members, family, or friends with an outdoor movie screen than you can with an indoor theater system. At Open Air Cinema, we make outdoor screens that range from 9 to 40 feet in width (actual screen width, not diagonal measurement), so it doesn't matter if you're looking to screen a movie with your family of five, or with the entire community of thousands, we have an outdoor movie screen for you! Because an inflatable screen has such a wide range of viewability, you can entertain many more people than you could inside a building, which is limited by the space of the room that you're screening in.

#3 An outdoor movie screen is portable

A big benefit of going with an outdoor movie screen over an indoor pull-down style screen or an LED TV is that an Open Air Cinema screen is highly portable as it can be folded up into a compact mass so that you can pack it up and take it anywhere! With a TV or a pull down screen you can't break them down as easily and so they're much more difficult to transport to different locations. An Open Air Cinema outdoor screen is the most portable of all movie theater options!

#4 An outdoor movie screen is a piece of cake to setup

Unroll your outdoor movie screen, secure your stakes and tethers, and turn on your inflatable screen air blower, then wait a few seconds as your screen inflates all on its own. It's just that simple. No drilling into walls, no difficult assembly, no screen frame construction. We've designed all of our outdoor movie screens to be as easy as possible to setup, so it doesn't matter if you have any experience with outdoor movie equipment or not, we've created a turnkey outdoor theater that you'll have up and running in no time.

#5 An outdoor movie screen is magical

We're not talking about Harry Potter magic here, at least in the magic broomstick sense. We are talking about it in the knock-your-socks-off cinema experience of watching a great movie like Harry Potter in the comfort of your own backyard or community space, all while breathing the fresh cool summer air and while having the stars over your head! There's something that's really incredible about watching a movie in the open outdoors that is so much better than being cooped up in your living room or in the crowded movie theater (with the sticky soda that someone spilled beneath your feet). When you're sitting with your family and friends on a blanket on the cool grass while watching your favorite movie under the stars, you'll get a taste of the magic of the outdoor movie screen experience.
