Make Your Pool a Floating Movie Theater
If you have a backyard pool, that as the summer heads in, and the evenings are warm and a night dip is a great way to end the day. Here is one more idea to enjoy your private pool in a whole new way. You can turn your pool into a private cinema and enjoy the best seats in the house.
In order to have the perfect cinema experience in your backyard pool, there are some things you will need.
- A portable screen.
- A powerful projector.
- Floating pool lounge.
- A floating pool table for your snacks & drinks.
Poolside Wide Screen
A poolside wide screen is an accessory you must have to fulfill the pool theater experience. Since you will not be too close to the screen, and the projector can not be in side the pool, the screen has to be large enough to capture the movie from some distance away.
There are plenty of wide screens for outdoor movie watching. The screen you need should be self standing or easy to port, you do not want it to flip over in any light breeze. It can be left outside for several nights, but should be folded to protect it from day time elements like sun UV and gusty winds.
A Descent Movie Projector
If you are planning to watch movies at day time or evenings you need a projector with 2000 lumens at least. If you know you will be watching movies only at dark evenings and at night, than any projector will do.
You will need a small table for the laptop or tablet, and for the projector. With a long cord for the power to reach them both. Make sure the electricity is in a safe distance from the pool and from areas people cross or walk by with their wet feet.
Most projectors do not have internal speakers loud enough to enjoy an action movie outside. So bring two PC speakers out also to get the sound effects you need when watching a movie. Place the speakers away from the pool.
For your safety make sure all the power cables and cinema accessories are away from any accidental possibility of falling to the pool.
Floating Lounge Chairs For Pool Theater Seats
