Posted by Paul Murray on Sunday Jul 14, 2013 Under Company News

How long have you worked for Southern Outdoor Cinema?
I have worked as an outdoor movie engineer with Southern Outdoor Cinema for over 4 years. I started as an event assistant during large outdoor movie productions. I learned the ropes by shadowing Southern Outdoor Cinema’s founder, Paul Murray, during many movies in the park events in Atlanta.

What is your favorite movie?
My favorite movie is “Top Gun” because I wanted to be a fighter pilot ever since I was a kid.

What is your favorite concession food?
I love to eat pizza while watching movies. Pizza topped with lots of pepperoni.

What inflatable movie screen sizes do you setup?
I setup screens of all sizes: from the 10′ screens for small private events to the Ginormous 70′ screen for large film festivals. I really enjoy working events with the 70′ screen. The screen is so huge in size!

What was your most favorite outdoor movie event you worked on?
My favorite event was the outdoor movie event held at the NFL Carolina Panthers training camp. We setup a huge inflatable Airscreen right on the stadium grounds. The event crew was able to meet the football players and watch them practice.

The Drive-In Turns 80 Years Old Today

Posted by Paul Murray on Friday Jun 7, 2013 Under Company News

Remember the good old days of the drive-in? Loading the family into the station wagon, the sound of the tires driving over gravel and viewing the movie out of the back of the car. This year the drive-in movie turns 80 years old.

In June of 1933 Richard Hollingshead, along with is partners, designed and built the world’s first drive-in movie theatre. The idea was to create a family friendly movie experience, where movie-goers could watch a movie from the comfort of their own vehicles. Other drive-in movie locations followed suit and opened up in other areas in the years following; with the height of the drive-in movie occurring during the 1950’s.

Southern Outdoor Cinema can bring the mobile drive-in cinema almost anywhere. We are fully equipped with state-of-the-art digital projection technology and a FM stereo transmitter. A modern day twist to the drive-in is the boat-in cinema, where boaters on lakes and rivers can watch a movie from their watercraft. All of Southern Outdoor Cinema’s screen viewing areas sit at least 6 feet or more off the ground, providing the best possible viewing for your guests. No installation of loudspeakers is required. Your guests simply tune into the movie’s frequency on their radios.
