One of my favorite presents ever was the DVD projector and screen that I got for Mother’s Day about 6 years ago. We’ve used it so often, it has been well worth the purchase. We bought a 12 foot screen with it, and watching movies on it is so much fun. And even though we use it all year round, our favorite thing to do is watch movies outside when the weather is nice. It reminds me of when I was a kid, and my parents would set up the old Super 8 projector and we’d watch movies outside in the summertime.
A lot of the time, we either invite the neighbors over, or if they see the screen is up, they come over to watch with us. Hot popcorn, some wine for the grown ups, and movie night is a hit at our house. Even the pup pulls up a chair and watches.
This summer we’re planning to get a large canvas so we can watch movies even bigger. Add some twinkly lights and it’s a good night. Just a few more weeks and we’ll be outside watching movies. I highly recommend movie night as a fun way for the whole family to get together. And movies under the stars make it even better.
