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.
