How to Create a Backyard Movie Screen
Watching a favorite movie outdoors is a fun and special warm–weather activity for kids and parents alike. And all it takes are some simple materials — plus a little creativity — to transform your backyard into an outdoor theatre. Setting Up Your Outdoor Screen What you need: 2 thick, white queen–size ironed flat sheets Top pole 1.5" diameter x 10' long Bottom pole 3" diameter x 10' long Rope — 2 different thicknesses Step 1. Start with two queen–size ironed flat sheets. Sew them together with white thread so the long sides are joined creating a tube. Once your screen is set up, create a casual, comfortable seating arrangement using plush cushions covered in fade–proof fabrics and soft, moisture–resistant pillows. A few simple drinks and snacks are all you need to complete your outdoor theatre.
