Outdoor Movie Titles for 2010

Posted by Paul Murray on Tuesday Dec 8, 2009 Under Event Productions

There are three elements to outdoor cinema events:

  • the venue
  • the social experience
  • and of course, the movies

Movie Titles - 2010 - Outdoor Movie

 

SELECTING A MOVIE
 

Which movie to show? Comedy, drama, action, classic? It’s up to you. You can show almost any movie that is available on DVD.

Movies just released to DVD tend to be a huge draw. Showing a brand-new release will be exciting. You will indirectly benefit from the marketing that surrounds DVD releases. But old favorites can be popular, too. Especially with parents who may feel nostalgic for movies they enjoyed as kids. 

Here are a few movie title suggestions for the 2010 outdoor movie season.

MOVIE PICKING TIPS
When considering movies, remember that pre-home release movies will bring in
larger crowds because they are not available to the public.

Try to pick something that does well in the theaters, even though it may not
be a person preference.

Winter Cinema

The value of an outdoor movie event… to add to an annual community event.


Winter Cinema
On a cold and windy night in a charming southern town of Hartsville, an inflatable movie screen was erected. The City Mayor, family and friends gathered together on blankets to watch the Polar Express outdoors in the downtown park. Bundled in coats and hats, movie watchers kept warm by sipping on hot chocolate. As the movie concluded, bells were heard in the distance. It was Santa. He arrived with Mrs. Clause and his elves to help light the City’s Christmas tree.
