Community Viewing Party of High School Football Game

When the Northside High School football team won the National Championship game their hometown wanted to celebrate in a big way. They didn’t just want to congratulate the players. They wanted to include the cheerleaders and band as well and let the kids know how special and talented they are, a self-esteem boost they’ll carry throughout their lives. The solution was to have a viewing party of the winning game.

Chick-Fil-A supported the effort and celebrated with the local hometown high school football team who won this National Championship game by hosting the viewing party. They had a giant two story tall inflatable movie screen, provided by Southern Outdoor Cinema of Atlanta, placed in their parking lot where guests could see the game bigger than life. It provided a great way for friends and family to relive that exciting moment in time along with the kids. The players, cheerleaders, and band members got the thrill of seeing themselves up on the big screen just like professional athletes. Best of all, those who didn’t have an opportunity to go to the actual game were given a chance to share the winning moment with the students in a very special way.

The Booster Club set up a trailer in the parking lot to sell memorabilia items. Everyone grabbed up the commemorative shirts, and it wasn’t long before the entire crowd was sporting the school colors. The players were able to sign autographs for their fans just like the professional would. Both guests and players were left with a feeling of having participated in something very special and unique.

Just before the big game was presented on the inflatable outdoor screen, the band performed a drum line. It truly added to the excitement of the event. People were soon settling in for the main attraction. The screen had been set up like a drive-in where families could watch from their cars. As you looked around you could see everyone settling in for the main attraction. Many friends and family members were able to set up lawn chairs while others sat in the back of their trucks in a tailgate fashion which added to the atmosphere of a championship game.

Everyone who attended knew exactly how the game would end, but it didn’t hinder the thrill of watching it. The locals, students, and their families totally enjoyed reliving each and every moment of such a wonderful experience. You could see the pride in the parent’s eyes as their children told their tales of how it felt to be national champions.

This celebration provided the town with a positive atmosphere where the players and cheerleaders could be treated like star athletes. As these talented students are preparing for their futures, this event encouraged them to continue with their hard work and dedication throughout life. They have learned teamwork skills that they can apply to many more aspects of their lives than just that winning national championship game. Chick-Fil-A, the Booster Club, and friends and family all saw this event as a huge success that was made even more memorable by watching the game on an outdoor inflatable screen.

Drive-In Movie: A Fun And Memorable Customer Appreciation Event

Posted by Paul Murray on Wednesday Dec 17, 2014 Under Event Productions, Tips

Drive-In Movie: Customer Appreciation Event

Customer appreciation is an important part of maintaining a loyal customer base, but many companies struggle with discovering a fun, unique way to accomplish this goal. An outdoor movie night offers customers the opportunity to attend a family-friendly event while simultaneously giving the business a chance to build positive brand recognition. Understanding how to hold such an event and the benefits that these events provide will help companies determine whether this marketing opportunity is right for them.

Benefits Of Hosting An Outdoor Movie Night Customer Appreciation Events

Holding customer appreciation events throughout the year is an essential method of maintaining the loyalty of current customers while attracting new ones to the business. Managers and owners have the opportunity to connect directly with their customer base during these events, and the feedback that is provided in a laid-back setting is invaluable to the business. Here are the benefits of holding a drive-in movie event for customers.

– Drive-in movies are fun and unique. The family-friendly events are also memorable, so customers will remember the event and the business for the long term.

– People who are thinking about becoming customers are more likely to do so if a business provides these outdoor movie events. Companies can feature their food or products at the event, so potential customers will be afforded the opportunity to sample what the company has to offer.

Chick-Fil-A Drive-In Movie Event

Chick-Fil-A Drive-In Movie

Businesses that are still on the fence about hosting a movie night can learn from the example of Chick-fil-A. The fast food restaurant’s recent outdoor movie event drew families to the giant inflatable movie screen placed by Southern Outdoor Cinema.

While the movie itself played a big role in the success of the evening, the initiative that Chick-fil-A took to make the night a memorable one helped to improve brand recognition and delight loyal customers. As a Christmas-themed event, Santa and Mrs. Claus were on-site to pose for pictures with families and little ones.

The drive-in movie was set up next to the restaurant for convenient access. Families were invited to relax in their vehicles and snuggle up in blankets for a showing of a holiday film. Holiday music was played throughout the event to complete the feeling of Christmas and the holidays, and inflatable holiday decorations contributed to the theme.

Family Drive-in

Of course, the Chick-fil-A cow made an appearance. The inclusion of the mascot helped to drive home the goal of brand recognition while offering children a fun experience that they are likely to remember forever. Hot chocolate and popcorn were sold at a concession stand set up near the screen to complete the movie experience.

Choosing Southern Outdoor Cinema

While there are benefits to holding an outdoor movie event, it is important for companies to choose the right equipment rental company to provide their customers with the best experience possible. There are DJs and equipment rental companies that provide low-quality screens and audio equipment, but impressing customers and showing appreciation for them requires something better.

Southern Outdoor Cinema of Atlanta offers the high-quality cinema equipment and exceptional service needed to create a unique, fun outdoor movie event for clients and their customers.

Movie Characters Come To Life At Drive-In Theater

Posted by Paul Murray on Tuesday Jul 22, 2014 Under Event Productions

Wizard of Oz Outdoor Movie Event

In Atlanta there is a Playhouse Theater that hosts popular plays in an outdoor setting rather than inside an arena or theater. The outdoor feel is more comfortable than sitting in a theater chair for hours and the setting unusual allowing for a unique experience. For one night the theater turned their establishment into a drive-In theater where people were allowed to watch the movie The Wizard of Oz from their cars, picnic placements and lawn chairs.

The One Night Event
The Playhouse company produced the outdoor movie event showed the classic film on a modern portable inflatable outdoor cinema system in an open field complete with FM transmitter. Actor look-a-likes playing the characters from the play / movie entertained the crowd before the feature film was presented.

New Technology Puts A Twist On A Classic
As times have changed the story of The Wizard of Oz has been kept the same if not altered just a little bit. The event and play had a more modern look of the character which allowed them to be easily compared to real life humans rather than big huge costumes from the old play settings. Instead of having to build a huge permanent drive-in setup they used a more modern approach with a portable inflatable movie screen. An event of this caliber recreated the nostalgia of the drive-in theater experience of the 50s and 60s.

One Of A Kind Experience
The Playhouse hosting the event truly created a one-of-a-kind experience. Mixing live action pre-movie entertainment straight out of the film with a high-end outdoor cinema drive-in experience. We’re sure the Oz under the stars movie experience will be talked about for a while.

Movie Night at the Auction House

Is there ever a terrible time to sit back and enjoy a terrific movie? The only answer that comes to mind, right about now, would have to be no. The biggest problem, for most people, has always been finding the time to actually get to the movies. Well Southern Outdoor Cinema has taken care of that little problem, once and for all, by bringing the movies to you.

Our inflatable movie screens allow us to provide theater size movie fun wherever, and whenever, the need should arise. Add our newest no-blower movie screen technology to the mix and what you have is the makings for an amazing event. You can now have all of the movie fun with none of the annoying background noise. There is simply no downside to letting Southern Outdoor Cinema provide great entertainment for your next event.

Indoor movie during a car auction in Atlanta

Take the latest auction that we provided movie entertainment for in Atlanta. Simply providing auction guests with a couple of great movies to enjoy between auctions was enough to keep them around for the entire auction. It naturally took time to transition from one auction item to the next (especially when dealing with classic cars), so providing movies like Smokey and the Bandit, and The Gumball Rally were perfect for keeping customers happy while waiting. What it really did was provide the auction company with an increased number of potential buyers, for a longer period of time.

It was a fantastic time, and not just because of all of the great items that were up for auction (although the 1961 Austin Countryman Woody that the inflatable movie screen was set-up next to looked fabulous). It was a fantastic time because of the fact that the auction company provided two great movies for guests to watch between auctions, and Southern Outdoor Cinema was able to help make it happen. It is safe to say that, were it not for the great movies playing between auctions, customers might not have stayed at the auction as long as they ended up staying. That is the reality of just how beneficial it can be to provide movies played on an inflatable movie screen, provided by Southern Outdoor Cinema, at your next event.

The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to providing movies for guests to enjoy at your next event. Our inflatable movie screens come in a variety of different sizes which makes providing movie entertainment for your upcoming event a definite reality. Whether your next event is going to be an indoor event, or an outdoor event, makes no difference whatsoever. The only thing that really matters is that you provide your guests with a great movie to enjoy on an inflatable movie screen, from Southern Outdoor Cinema.

Indoor Drive-in Event in Atlanta

Company picnics, community festivals and county fairs are only improved when an inflatable movie screen is set up for guests to enjoy. In fact, the size of the event makes no difference either. Big or small, thousands of guests or just a few, none of that matters. If the entertainment is the only thing keeping you from finalizing your event plans, then let us help you get it done. A great movie is a great movie, no matter how many people are enjoying it.

Southern Outdoor Cinema recently brought the magic of the drive-in movie on location to a college campus during spring fling week. Here is how Southern Outdoor Cinema used the latest in inflatable movie screen technology to create an unforgettable drive-in movie experience right in the parking lot of this college campus.

Our crew transformed an ordinary parking lot into a drive-in movie theatre for just one night. SOC used a huge, inflatable movie screen, a monster sound system, and an FM transmitter to create the ultimate drive-in movie experience for students, with clear picture and sound. Students who sat on chairs or walked past the area were able to see and hear the movie clearly on the huge screen, and hear it through our monster sound system. Others were able to enjoy an authentic drive-in movie experience by tuning their car radios in and listening through the FM transmitter.

Southern Outdoor Cinema uses AIRSCREEN brand screens, the world’s leader in inflatable movie screen technology. These screens feature a highly reflective surface that offers a picture just like you would enjoy in an actual movie theatre. These technologically advanced screens, along with HD projectors, allowed us to present video on the screen long before dusk, while other providers must wait until 20-40 minutes after sundown to begin displaying images on their screens.

Our AIRSCREEN inflatable movie screen made it possible for the client to display several student made videos before the featured movie. The movie was then able to begin right at sundown. These screens and projectors make it possible for events to begin earlier, so students can enjoy the event and still return to their dorms before curfew.

By using the latest and greatest inflatable movie screen technology available, Southern Outdoor Cinema is able to transform an ordinary place like a parking lot on a college campus into an amazing, on location, drive-in movie theatre. The advanced screens, projectors, and sound system we use give our clients an edge when it comes to hosting unforgettable movie events.

Check out the video below to see how Southern Outdoor Cinema transformed a college parking lot into a drive-in event…
