There are some creative ways to make the most of October and outdoor movies
, and we thought we'd share a few things that we've done in the past, and that we've seen Open Air Cinema outdoor movie system owners do.
Scary Outdoor Movies are All About Location
A sure way to heighten the scare factor of your outdoor movies
event is to hold your screening in a spooky location. For example, if you are showing the Blair Witch Project, screening your film in the middle of the woods will make the event extra scary. Imagine how scared your guests will be when you walk around in the woods during the film! Another idea is to screen a spooky flick in an old abandoned building. Of course you'll want to ensure that the building is safe, and that you have permission to hold a screening, but the dark shadows and eerie atmosphere will contribute to a fun filled night!
The location of your outdoor movies screening doesn't have to scare your audience though. You might be the leader of a community, military base, or business and are looking for a fun family type event to celebrate Halloween. You can still choose a location that feels festive, yet isn't too scary for the kids. For instance, you could do an outdoor movie showing of Beetlejuice or the Nightmare Before Christmas near your local corn maze. Then you have a built in activity before or after the event, while also adding to the festive environment.
Treats For Scary Outdoor Movies
One of the best parts of Halloween and outdoor movies is the treats that come with them. Although it gets darker in October at an earlier time (so you'll be able to hold your screening at an earlier hour), you'll want to make sure to hold pre-show activities and to have some treats or concessions for your crowd. They'll enjoy the movie a lot more with a candied apple and some hot cider! This can be a great way to support local businesses, as you can invite them to sponsor the event by bringing the treats, or you can offer them the opportunity to sell their goods.
Outdoor movies and Halloween go hand in hand, so make sure to include an Open Air Cinema outdoor movie screening with your annual spooky party! To order your OAC outdoor movie system in time for Halloween, call us today at 866-802-8202.
