Summertime is the perfect time to take it outside.
You can make your outdoor movie theater as simple or high-tech as you like.
Unlike flat screen televisions, a projector can easily be moved outdoors for an evening of movies under the stars. Wow your neighbors and friends with larger-than-life films, sports and music, all from the comfort of your backyard. You can also bring your projector with you on camping or tailgating trips.

There are currently no projectors designed exclusively for outdoor use. However, most of our home theater projectors, and even some of our business models, can easily be set up outside.
There are no projectors designed specifically for outdoor use, however, you can bring most home theater models outside. Just don't forget to bring them inside when you're done!
To get those gigantic, vivid images projectors are known for, we highly recommend using an HD model in your outdoor theater. Most of our home theater projectors are 720p or 1080p and will more than fit the bill. You can also look for a business model with a resolution of 1280 x 800 or higher.
Non-HD projectors will also work well outdoors, but the image quality won't be quite as spectacular as their higher resolution brothers and sisters.
You'll also need a computer that can preferably output in HD, or an upconverting DVD or Blu-ray player for your outdoor theater. Many of today's home theater projectors feature a built-in DVD player or iPhone dock, making them a perfect all-in-one solution. Just don't forget the extension cord!

You betcha! You can make your own screen using a sheet, the side of your house, the garage door, painter's tarp, you name it. Some of the best outdoor movie theaters we've seen were just a projector and a sheet hung between two trees.

From cinema-grade material you can attach to your garage to freestanding screens that set up in minutes, there is sure to be an outdoor screen that fits your needs and budget.
