Church Youth Ministry Hosts Big Hero 6 Movie Night

Posted by Paul Murray on Sunday Jan 10, 2016 Under Event Productions

Considering that the Big Hero 6 movie was a phenomenal film, there is only one way to make the movie better, and that is by hosting a children’s movie event in a space that is transformed into San Fransokyo with featured characters from the film. That is exactly what occurred when Southern Outdoor Cinema partnered with the Youth Ministry at a Church in Roswell Georgia for movie night in a basketball gym. It was truly amazing to watch their church community come together to create an unforgettable atmosphere for the children to enjoy and remember for a very long time.

Southern Outdoor Cinema provided the inflatable movie screen to showcase the film, and the Youth Ministry and the church community did an excellent job of decorating the gym with themed items from the Big Hero 6 film. The decorations included paper lanterns for ambient lighting, white balloons decorated with the one-of-a-kind Baymax face, props that resembled the San Fransokyo city and skyline, colorful balloons, bags and bags of popcorn, lots of tasty treats at the fully stocked concession stands and much more.

Big Hero 6 Movie Night at Church

The youth fully enjoyed the special guest appearances by the Big Hero 6 movie characters, which included Baymax, Hiro Hamada and Honey Lemon. The energy in the room was vibrant and electric as the children ran, played and interacted with the movie characters. Of course, the super cuddly Baymax character stole the show as the children could not get enough of the life-sized superhero that had clearly captured the imagination of the smaller children.

Big Hero 6 Movie Characters

The movie event was truly epic before and after the featured film even started. However, when the film was playing the children enjoyed watching their favorite Big Hero 6 characters on the large inflatable screen. The children cheered, laughed and smiled as the event was truly a family affair with very supportive adults and teenagers who worked really hard to ensure that the youngest participants had a great time.

The movie event was truly filled with joy and tons of smiles and laughter as all of the participants interacted with each other like one big happy family. Another thing that the children really enjoyed was the freedom to make unlimited trips to the concession stands. It seemed like there was as much popcorn and candy as any small movie theater that I had ever been to.

Having Southern Outdoor Cinema screens at the Big Hero 6 movie event was a fantastic experience for everyone. Even though the children were very respectful and well-behaved, it was still great to have the presence of an inflatable and mobile movie screen that is durable and capable of withstanding a room filled with excited children who played freely and safely.

SOC-Outdoor-Movie-Singles-event-church-14

It can be hard for young adults to meet other singles these days, especially if they are looking for a safe and wholesome environment in which to meet others their own age. Many people go to bars and nightclubs or resort to online dating sites to find a significant other, but recently a community church came up with a new alternative for those in their parish.

This church decided to host an outdoor movie event where the singles in their community could mingle with each other in an environment that was not only safe, it was fun. They had a huge inflatable movie screen set up on the church’s lawn with their building as the backdrop. A movie for young adult singles was selected as the main feature of the evening, and to get the event started off, the pastor spoke about how he had met his spouse at a special event at church.

Part of what made the outdoor movie event for singles such a success was the amount of people who came. Not only did this large church invite its own members, they asked singles from their four satellite churches to come as well. They also didn’t make it exclusively for the church members. Non-church members were included, and everyone was encouraged to bring a friend. Because it was only for singles in the community, there were no families with little children involved. This made it much easier for everyone who attended to mingle with others freely.

The movie started as the sun went down. The large group of singles who showed up for the event had brought blankets, pillows, and lawn chairs. Everyone was able to claim a spot on the church’s lawn where they could be comfortable, and the inflatable screen was big enough that everyone was able to find a good place for viewing the presentation. It became an entertaining way to sit back and relax on a warm evening with both new and old friends.

The hosts of this outdoor movie event for singles realized that it could be difficult to actually talk to others and meet new people while watching a movie, so they included many other activities. Before the feature film was scheduled to begin they had games such as corn hole set up, but it was the line dancing that stole the show. A huge group of people joined in as the music played. It was as fun to watch as it was to dance, and it turned out to be the perfect way to break the ice.

You can’t host a successful event without food. The church arranged to have plenty of food trucks come in and offer the guests a terrific way to get snacks and treats both before and during the movie. In keeping with the movie theater feel they also made sure that there was plenty of popcorn to go around. Many of the singles thought ahead and brought along picnic dinners to enjoy on the lawn of the church.

Social events are a great way to meet up with new people in the community. When a church decides to host an outdoor movie event they are providing their members a wonderful way to find other singles in their area while remaining safe. This church’s movie night event for young adults was a huge success, and hopefully many of those who attended can one day tell a story similar to their pastor’s about how they met their spouse at a special church event.

$199 For An Outdoor Movie Rental

Posted by Paul Murray on Tuesday Aug 25, 2015 Under Tips

Funflicks outdoor movie rental $199 in Atlanta

Many of you who belong to a PTA/PTO organization or host school events for grades ranging from elementary school to college know how important it is to have events that are both fun and successful. Holding an outdoor movie event in the Atlanta Georgia area is an excellent way to get people to come to your function as well as guarantee that everyone will have a good time and leave with memories that will last a lifetime.

Choosing the Right Movie Rental Company

When you begin to plan your function you will find there are several cinema companies out there who do outdoor movie events. Choosing the right one ensures a successful evening that both the host and guests can enjoy. There are some inflatable movie screen equipment rental companies in Atlanta that offer their services for as low as $199 or $299. Don’t ignore that red flag telling you that this sounds too good to be true.

Inexpensive outdoor movie night

There are many reasons why these companies are so cheap. Several of them can offer these unbelievably low rates because they are providing their outdoor movie equipment as additional income to their main operation. They are not experts in the outdoor movie event production. DJs often offer movie services. You’ll also find mom and pop companies doing outdoor movie events as a side job. This can be a problem because these people are not focusing fully on your movie experience. Cheap or faulty equipment combined with their lack of knowledge can result in a disappointing event for you and your guests.

Inflatable Screen Quality

There are also inflatable movie screen rental companies that have low prices due to the inflatable screen system they are using. Companies who purchase inexpensive, non-commercial grade screens cannot give you the best movie viewing experience. As a result the quality of your outdoor movie event will suffer.

There are many different kinds of inflatable outdoor movie screens. Understanding their differences can help you choose the best rental company available. Some of these screens are made for one or two time use at home. They are meant to be discarded after that. Others are made by manufacturers who produce things other than movie screens such as bounce houses. Typically these movie screens are unattractive and will have wrinkles which distort the movie image.

You’ll also find that the projection surface or the white screen surface where the movie is shown on some inflatable movie screens is not a real movie screen surface like you would find in an actual theater. This will make the picture look dull or appear to be the wrong color. We even came across a movie screen that made everything look green. When you choose Southern Outdoor Cinema you can rest assured that you are getting a real theatrical screen surface on the inflatable movie screen equipment.

The Benefits of an Early Start

Another factor to consider is whether or not you can begin your event before sunset. Due to the quality of their screen surface and the types of projectors used by these cheaper providers, images cannot be on the screen until after dark. Southern Outdoor Cinema can start their movie projection up to an hour before most of their competitors. This allows you to have an earlier movie start time. That’s an important consideration if you’re having young children at your event. Parents won’t want to keep their kids out late.

Earlier start times also give more time for displaying sponsor advertising. As a client you’ll be able to make money off the event by showing your advertising for at least 20 minutes before the movie begins. You’ll also find you won’t have guests sitting in the dark waiting for the feature film to start. Southern Outdoor Cinema has found that the best part of watching an outdoor movie is the setting of the venue. Seeing a beautiful sunset in the background when the movie begins playing can be breathtaking.

What to Do When Hiring a Movie Company

It’s important to check the price quotes for your outdoor movie event. Obtain references from recent clients that have worked with the rental company you are considering. Visiting an event that is being produced by that company will allow you to see exactly what level of quality you’ll be getting. Many competitors will lie about the size of the screen they are using, but with Southern Outdoor Cinema you’ll find you get exactly what you would expect to make your outdoor movie event a complete success.
