Choosing A Movie Screen Rental Company

 So you have decided to have a Backyard Outdoor Movie Party?  You made a great decision, outdoor movies are a blast and a night all will remember. To ensure you Backyard Movie Party is a success we have put together a checklist to ask when choosing an Outdoor Movie Screen Rental Company:

1.  Choose a rebuttal Ohio Outdoor Movie Screen Rental Company.  Not all Outdoor Movie Screen Rental Companies are created equal! 
                                                    Here a few questions you will want to ask:

  • Do they have multiple screen sizes?  Professional Outdoor Movie companies will carry a wide range of screen sizes to accommodate your unique outdoor movie event needs. Multiple  Movie Screen Rental Packages allows you to choose what best fits your needs!

  • Do they have a wide range of audio equipment? This is an extremely important factor to consider. Having the proper audio is the key to any successful event!

  •  What type of outdoor projectors do they use?  This separates the Pro's from the Novice! Professional outdoor projectors range from 4000-10,000 lumens and are very expensive. Your typical projectors do not have enough lumens (brightness) to produce the quality picture you deserve! Be sure to ask how many lumens the projector produces.


  • What if it rains?  Do they have a weather guarantee? Do they charge you extra?  Most professional companies should allow you to reschedule without penalty.  For example, Buckeye Outdoor Cinema located in Ohio does not charge extra or penalize you if your event is canceled due to weather.

  • Do they carry extras?  Again, this separates the Pro's from the Novice! Popcorn Machines, Snow Cone Machines, Cotton Candy Machines, Microphones, X-box, and Rockband are examples of the final touches that can make your event a night to remember!

    • Do they have refferalls from a wide range of customers?  Professional Outdoor Movie Companies shoud be able to easily produce referrals and testimonials of their services. They should also assist you with Outdoor Movie Ideas for your event!
    Ask the above questions and you will feel confident on your Movie Screen Rental Company decision!

    Great Flick for a Good Cause!

    Who likes a Great Flick for a Good Cause? Everyone! Outdoor Movies and Fundraisers go hand in hand and provide the perfect backdrop for your fundraising needs.  Buckeye Outdoor Cinema has provided Outdoor Movie Screen Rental packages for Non-Profit Fundraisers across the great state of Ohio for years!

    What Makes a Successful Outdoor Movie Fundraiser?

    1. Choose a reputable Outdoor Movie Screen Company with experience providing public performance events.  Just like any business, not all Outdoor Movie Screen Rental companies are created equal.  Ask for references, proof of insurance, available screen sizes and audio options. An experienced Outdoor Cinema company should be able to provide many different options based on your events needs. Be sure to ask if they provide discounts for Non-Profit or Fundraiser causes.

    2. Location! Location! Location!  Choosing the right location is one of the keys to a successful event.  Choose a location with the least amount of light pollution as possible.  Examples of light pollution are:  ambient light from cars, street lights, sunlight, etc.  All of which do not play well with Outdoor Movie Projectors.  Be sure to talk about this very important factor with the Screen Rental company.  Below are some popular locations we have provided Outdoor Movie Fundraisers.

    • Backyards
    • Beaches or poolside
    • Rooftops and parking lots
    • Baseball fields, football fields or soccer fields
    • Neighborhood block parties or cul-de-sac street parties
    • City parks or local fairgrounds

    3. Choose the Ultimate Movie!  Now this is where it gets tough...the most obvious choice is a family-friendly flick like the popular Disney movies.  Keep in mind, the Movie Rental company does not provide the movie for you.  If hosting a public viewing or using certain movies, you may need a special license.  The Screen Rental company you choose should be able to assist you in this process.  Check out and our frequently asked questions to help with any questions regarding public place theatrical licenses.  Here are some popular outdoor movie choices:
    • Toy Story
    • Shrek
    • Star Wars
    • Sponge Bob, Square Pants
    • Harry Potter
    • Spider Man
    • Batman
    • Cars
    • Lord of the Rings
    • Any Disney movie
    4. Popcorn Here! Get Your Popcorn Here! Now, we all know popcorn is the king snack for movie night, right?  Would you be surprised to learn that our most popular concession rental is the cotton candy machine?  In addition to the popular cotton candy machine rental, we also have popcorn machine and snow cone machine rentals for our customers.  This is a another great way to raise additional funds!  The kid in all of us will love it and it puts the finishing touches on night to remember.
