Next Generations of Drive-In Movies

Posted by Paul Murray on Saturday Apr 3, 2010 Under Event Productions

There was a kind of magic about the drive-in movie theater. I can still hear the gravel crunching underneath the tires of our car as dad entered to find the perfect spot for the family to watch the movie. Mom and Dad would bring lawnchairs to watch the movies under the stars while us kids slept in the car with our favorite blanket and pillow. As we got older, I recall the time with my buddies, where we all packed into the trunk to sneak into the movie. Do you remember that?

Today drive-in theatres have gone by the wayside, but there is a new generation of outdoor movies that are growing in popular. Today’s generation can relish the romance of open-air cinemas through the use of portable inflatable movie screens. Outdoor movies are being installed on a per night bases where ever a crowd can gather. Friends and Family gather on blankets or low back chairs under the open sky to watch movies outdoors.

First 4-D Outdoor Movie Event

Posted by Paul Murray on Thursday Apr 1, 2010 Under Company News

Moviegoers are experiencing a new way to watch films these days and that is outdoors. The first thing people think of when you say outdoor movies is the old drive-ins. Who doesn’t remember piling into the family station wagon and sound the tires made riding over the gravel as you approached the drive-in. But outdoor movies have evolved. An outdoor movie today consist of friends and family sitting on a blanket in a picturesque location with a warm summer breeze watching movies under the stars. Outdoor movies are popping up on all over the country. A typical outdoor movie event can accommodate 400% or more moviegoes than a standard movie theater.

Movies in 3-D are all the craze these days. Most of us have you seen Fox Studios ‘Avatar’ or Dreamworks ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ in 3-D. But what 3-D is lacking is the physical effects of the presentation. This is where 4-D movies outdoors comes in.

In October of 2009, Southern Outdoor Cinema produced the first ever outdoor 4-D movie event. On a large grassy soccer field in the City of Johns Creek, GA a portable inflatable movie screen was erected to present the movie ICE AGE 3. The park was decorated with winter elements such as skiis, sleds, large snowmen and mittens. But the experience of the event didn’t end there, instead it started miles before moviegoes arrived at the park. High in the sky, floating above the city, were large 3 foot wide snowflakes. Snow in Atlanta in October, how was this possible? Southern Outdoor Cinema used soap formed helium-filled snowflakes that floated as high as a mile and as far out as three miles. Another element added to the event, was the use of snow. At the gate of the event, moviegoes where greeted by snow flurries. Southern Outdoor Cinema went beyond the elements of touch and sight and teased the audiences sense of smell by incorporating a scent of “snow” during the snow seasons. A 4-D movie outdoor is truly an experience moviegoing never experience before.
