If you are on a budget, you could use a second-hand slide screen, the kind used in schools in the Eighties and Nineties, or pick up a projector screen from around £25 on Amazon. The lifestyle blogger Olivia Edwards-Silk (@lustliving) uses one in a wooden pergola in her garden for alfresco cinema nights. Brook uses an outdoor screen from Elite Screens’ Yard Master range — it has a folding aluminium frame and sturdy T-legs. Expect to pay about £200 for one of these, depending on the size.
Watching a movie underneath the stars sounds like the perfect way to unwind! But more often than not, outdoor movie theaters or projectors do not offer good sound quality. And with an outdoor setting, the already low audio gets dispersed, becoming even more inaudible.
Bring some movie magic to your home with a DIY portable projector screen. Not only is it easy to make (we're talking an hour tops), it only costs $30 in materials. And no sewing is required. Use it indoors or out.
