Food Truck Invasion And An Outdoor Movie

Posted by Paul Murray on Monday Mar 9, 2015 Under Event Productions

Food truck invasion and an outdoor movie

The people of the North Fort Lauderdale/Miami area have found a way to capture a retro feeling during an evening of family fun events. They’ve combined three terrific activities into one exciting night that those of all ages can appreciate. Whether you are a foodie, classic car junky, or simply miss the days of the drive-in theater, you’ll love the monthly Food Truck Invasion and Outdoor Movie. It’s become a terrific way to make memories with friends and family in a classic setting.

Once a month in the North Fort Lauderdale/Miami area they hold a food truck invasion. Guests can indulge in all their favorites such as hamburgers, hot dogs, and barbecue. If you are feeling in the mood for something more adventurous, there is plenty of other cuisine to delight your taste buds. With over twenty food trucks, it’s not surprising to find everything from Mexican to Greek, and they even remember to offer ice cream for dessert.

Classic car, cobra at Movie night

The fun doesn’t stop when visitors have finally got their fill of all the tasty dishes and treats. The city park’s grass commons area is transformed into an outdoor movie venue. Guests are immediately transported back to the old drive-in days of yesteryear. Just like then, people can sit in their cars, out on the grass on blankets, or in lawn chairs and enjoy a family friendly movie under the stars. A large inflatable movie screen is set up where everyone can find a good seat for viewing the main feature.

Eat Hear See

One aspect of the evening that truly brings the retro drive-in feel to life is how the classic car club meets there too. The members bring their restored cars and trucks to the event where they can show off all the hard work and time they’ve spent on these beauties. Any avid car lover would enjoy strolling among these classics where they can get an up-close look while being able to talk to the owners. Others will simply enjoy that “remember when” feeling that only these unique vehicles can bring to mind.

The people who coordinate this monthly event have found a way to provide residents of the area and visitors alike with a way to spend time with family and friends that they won’t soon forget. The Food Truck Invasion alone is a big draw to folks from all over, but by adding an outdoor movie to the evening’s schedule, they’ve created a way for everyone to be able to sit back and relax while enjoying some delicious food. All of the guests left after the feature presentation with memories that will last a lifetime.

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.

What You Need To Know Before Planning A Fall Outdoor Movie Event.

Posted by Paul Murray on Wednesday Sep 17, 2014 Under Tips

Fall is an excellent time of year for an outdoor movie.

Even though summer is over, the outdoor fun doesn’t have to come to an end. Fall is a wonderful time of year to host an outdoor movie event. These events can make any school function or fall festival a memorable occasion. With a little special planning, this outdoor movie can be just as fun and comfortable as a summer event.

Set the Scene for Fall

As the host, you can take full advantage of the smell of autumn air by giving everyone in your community a reason to come out and enjoy it along with the beautiful view of the colored leaves. Hay bales serve double duty as both extra seating and the perfect harvest time decoration. Don’t forget to use the in season apples and pumpkins to create points of interest or to simply scatter about for effect.

Keep Everyone Warm and Comfortable

No one’s going to enjoy themselves if they are more focused on staying warm then watching the movie. Because the days are still quite warm, you as the event planner may not have thought about how autumn nights will affect your outdoor movie night and your guest’s viewing experience.

Once the sun goes down and it’s dark outside, the ground can become hard and cold. Temperatures will continue to drop as the evening progresses. You also have a better chance of the ground becoming wet during fall nights than you do during the summer. Unless you’re prepared, this can turn your outdoor movie event into a wet and cold viewing experience. This is when the children will begin to fuss, making it hard for families to enjoy themselves.

Fall outdoor movie planning

Timing is Everything

While your guests will bring along their blankets, coats, and gloves to the event, the chill of the night can overcome them. This makes it uncomfortable for them to watch a movie on into the night. You can help prevent this by choosing to have your movie event earlier in the evening.

When picking an equipment provider for your movie night, it is important to know what time the main feature will start. A majority of equipment providers, especially those who are DJs, cannot start projecting your movie onto their inflatable screens until it is completely dark out.

Choose a Professional Company

A professional company like Southern Outdoor Cinema can start pre-movie projection at least 40 to 60 minutes before dark with the actual main attraction beginning right at sundown. Having a head start on the evening in this way will place the majority of the outdoor movie event in the earlier evening hours when it is still a bit warmer and more comfortable. This makes for a more enjoyable experience for your guests.

With just a little careful planning, you will have created a fun and memorable fall experience that your guests will remember for years to come.

Pets Watch Outdoor Movies Too

Posted by Paul Murray on Wednesday Jul 16, 2014 Under Event Productions

Pets watch outdoor movies too
What makes watching movies outdoors on large inflatable screens a unique experience is that you can have the whole family on a blanket together, but don’t leave the family pet behind. We often include our pets in so much of our everyday life that they begin to feel like they are an actual member of the family. So why would we leave them at home?

Why Bring Your Pet to an Outdoor Movie Event?
Outdoor movies on large inflatable screens are ideal for families. They are shown in relaxing and fun settings such as fund raisers, in parks, at festivals, and many other unique settings. Children especially love the novelty of watching a movie under the stars, so why not bring along the pets too.

Nothing helps us relax better than having our favorite pet cuddle in our laps. There is no reason why they can’t cozy up in a lawn chair or on a blanket with you while watching the main feature. You’ll also get some terrific pictures as they socialize with others and later on settle in with the kids.

Most pets, especially dogs can become restless when left home alone too much. Just like humans, most pets need stimulation to keep them well behaved and happy. During the work day they are pretty much stuck being left behind, but they are more than welcome at outdoor movies.

How Pets Help Their Humans
The more time we spend with our pets, the healthier we can become. Pets of all types are beneficial. Everything from birds and hamsters to dogs and cats can provide the following benefits.

• They Help Us Relax
• They Can Reduce Blood Pressure
• They Are Therapeutic
• They Improve Relationships
• Pets Enhance One’s Mood
• Their Companionship Overcomes Depression

If our pets can do all this, why wouldn’t we include them in events that also help with these common situations?

What Types of Pets Enjoy Outdoor Movies?
Of course our furriest family members such as dogs and cats would love the opportunity to go to an outdoor movie with their favorite humans, but these events can be terrific for a wide range of family pets.

Pets enjoy outdoor movie event

At a recent event in Florida, we spotted a family watching a movie with their parrot. He was perched on the back of his owner’s lawn chair, and he seemed to be enjoying everything just as much as she was. He was quite content to sit and look around at all that was happening.

We’ve also seen some pretty unusual pets showing up at outdoor movies lately. We’ve seen an iguana and even a pet monkey who were quite happy to be included.

As long as your family pet is well behaved and the outdoor movie is being held in an area where pets are allowed, there is no reason why they can’t enjoy an evening out with their family. Pack their favorite snacks right along with the ones you bring for you and the kids, and they’ll be thrilled that you remembered to include them.
