Your Very Own Theater Under the Stars

Your Very Own Theater Under the Stars

Does your family enjoy settling in for movie night? Do you like to host watch parties of your favorite teams with your friends gathered around the big screen? With warmer weather on its way, why not take the fun outside? Imagine catching the game from the comfort of your patio or offering rafts for your kids and guests to enjoy a movie while afloat! The best seat in the house may not be in the house after all!

You may already be streaming your music through outdoor speakers or watching your weatherproof LED while cooking burgers, but imagine upping the entertainment by creating an outdoor theater with a larger-than-life jaw-dropping projection? 

A Star-filled Night

An outdoor theater adds enormous entertainment value to your outdoor living space. It can boast an exceptional image as well as uncompromised sound. And the sound system can be multi-use, filling the space with music by day and heart-pounding theater audio at night.  You can share content from your home theater or media room system or stream from your favorite movie service. But unlike your indoor space, you won’t need to paint a constellation on the ceiling!

Not Just Any Gear Will Do

Like other specialized outdoor AV gear, weather-resistant options are available for projectors and projection screens. Projectors can be housed in a climate-controlled mounting box or cleverly mounted for quick set-up on movie night. Screens can roll down from beneath your home’s eaves, pop-up from custom enclosures or temporarily affix to an outdoor wall or window. With no “ceilings” to mount from however, determining where the projector can be installed can require some creativity. And added throw distance and lumens may be required to achieve exceptional picture quality. Fortunately, we excel at this!

Always in Control

For uninterrupted enjoyment you’ll want a robust network and remote control to access your home’s Blu-ray player or movie server. Several waterproof remotes are available giving you the ability to control everything even when you’re in the pool! Control of elegantly designed landscape and patio lighting rounds out the outdoor living space. Lighting can accent feature areas and walkways for drama and safety while allowing separate control of zones surrounding the screen area.
