Mobile Movie Screen Provides Movie In The Bay

Posted by Paul Murray on Tuesday Jul 1, 2014 Under Event Productions

Boat-In Movie

Imagine sitting in your boat relaxing as the sun sets. Along with enjoying the peaceful evening, sounds of lapping water, and a beautifully colored sky, you get to actually watch a drive-in style movie. This is exactly what a marina in the Florida Gulf Coast decided to for their fellow boaters.

This marina was trying to think of ways that they could add to the fun the boaters already enjoy on the water. It needed to be a family friendly event that stood out from the typical summer festivities. That’s when they thought to themselves “how about a drive-in style movie?”

Boat-In Movie
There were many challenges that faced them as they started to put a plan in motion. First of all they needed to figure out how to set up a movie screen that could easily be seen from all the boats in the bay. If it was set up on land, the marina would be packed, and guests wouldn’t get a good view. There was also the issue of sound. How would everyone be able to hear the movie? Of course this is the gulf, and the issue of winds had to be taken into consideration as well.

Rather than give up on this wonderful idea, the marina turned to South Outdoor Cinema for help. SOC specializes in setting up outdoor inflatable movie screens in unusual and difficult venues. They knew just what to do to bring this dream event to life.

Movie Screen On A Barge
With the use of a high-end mobile outdoor movie screen system, South Outdoor Cinema was able to set up the inflatable movie screen on a large barge. The barge was able to float out into the bay right along with all the boats. This gave boaters more room, along with excellent views from many locations.

An FM transmitter was used to broadcast the movie’s soundtrack. This is similar to how the actual land locked drive-ins broadcast their movie’s sound to cars. It was the perfect solution. The sound would be directly broadcast to each boat.

Unique Viewing Experience
Once everything was in place, it was time for the event itself. Guest began to show up on their boats, and they filled the bay with families who were eagerly anticipating this big event. The weather totally cooperated, providing everyone in attendance with a beautiful sunset as an intro to the main feature. As the natural light faded away, the family friendly movie began, and the boaters were treated to a new and unique form of entertainment.

People who attended were highly pleased with the experience. Being able to watch the movie from their own boats not only gave them one more excuse to go out on the bay, but it created memories their friends and family won’t soon forget. Over all, it was a relaxing evening for all who came. Boaters brought along picnic style dinners and plenty of snacks to add to the fun. Parents got to spend some quality time with their little ones, and everyone went home very happy with how it all turned out.

Movie Event Highlight of Fundraising Carnival

Posted by Paul Murray on Tuesday Jun 24, 2014 Under Event Productions

Outdoor Movie Fundraising

School carnival fundraisers are an excellent and fun way to earn money that schools need. Recently a school had a spring festival to raise their needed funds. The highlight of this event was an outdoor movie shown on a large inflatable screen. Not only was it fun for students and their families, but it made the fundraiser more attractive for the community. Several residents came out to support the school and enjoy the film.

This school carnival fundraiser was organized by the PTA. They wanted to create an event that both the children and their parents could enjoy together. They decided to include a variety of activities throughout the afternoon. A rock climbing wall was brought in for the students to use, and several bounce houses were set up on the school grounds. Fun carnival games were included in the lineup, along with an old fashioned dunk tank. Students loved the opportunity to dunk their favorite teachers and grown-ups.

SPORTING ACTIVITIES
Sporting activities provided plenty of outdoor exercise for the kids and their families. A sack race that the kids could participate in added to the excitement. They even included a small miniature golf putting green and a small scale soccer practice area. A local Taekwondo school gave demonstrations and showed children how to do a few basic moves.

PHOTOBOOTH
Photo ops were plentiful. The PTA made arrangements for a photo booth where small groups could have a great time creating silly poses. A tee pee made the ideal backdrop for still photos.

OUTDOOR MOVIE
The day was topped off with a movie event. It was held outdoors where a large inflatable screen was set up. Guests brought blankets to spread out, along with lawn chairs for seating. It was a relaxing and casual setting, perfect for an evening of family entertainment. After spending the day playing the games, participating in the sports, and taking advantage of the photo ops, students and their parents were presented with a blockbuster film.

Outdoor Movie Night Kicks Off 3 Day Long Festival

Posted by Paul Murray on Tuesday May 20, 2014 Under Event Productions

Outdoor Movie Kicks off Vidalia Onion Festival

One southern town found a creative and fun way to kick off their 37th annual three day harvest festival. This yearly celebration is always eagerly anticipated by locals and visitors alike. This year the organizers of the festival wanted to start things off with an event packed evening in the downtown area. It included local dancers, pageant queens, and the winners of a writing contest. It was topped off with an exciting Movies Under the Stars event.

The three day festival draws in people from all over. It is featured on a popular TV channel, and it was named as one of MSNBC’s top “Five Don’t Miss Festivals Across the U.S.” The festival itself includes plenty of family friendly activities and fun. Numerous cooking contests are held where professional chefs compete against each other’s notorious dishes. A carnival midway is set up at the local airport with rides and games for all ages. During the three days of celebration, country concerts fill the air with joyful tunes.

Vidalia Onion Festival Dancers and Beauty Queen

The fun began long before the actual festival with a beauty pageant, a boy’s youth baseball tournament, and a Battle of the Bands. Finally opening day arrived, and it was celebrated with plenty of family friendly activities. There was a children’s parade and a folk life play for entertainment, and visitors could spend the afternoon browsing among the sidewalk sales and arts and craft booths. The highlight of the day was the evening’s Movies Under the Stars event.

To make the movie event possible, organizers turned a section of the downtown area into an outdoor theater. A stage was constructed where local talents could perform, and a large inflatable outdoor movie screen was set up. With the help of the local residents, they created a fun area where everyone could gather together, sit back, and relax while enjoying a popular animated feature. It was also a great way to attract patrons to the festival. Food and concession stands were also brought in for the big event.

Guests were encouraged to bring lounge chairs and blankets, and once everyone got settled in, the evening festivities began. They started with local children and youth dancers performing their wonderfully done routines on the stage. The pageant winners were introduced, as well as the winners of the festival’s writing contest. Afterwards all of the children and contest winners were able to join their families to watch the movie.

It was a beautiful evening spent outdoors under the stars with friends and family. Not only did it provide a way for people to visit and have fun, it gave everyone a chance to relax and unwind before the actual festival began. Everything was in place for the three day festival, and it was a terrific way to get things started.

The festival continued on throughout the next few days with all the fun and events residents look forward to each year, but it was the Movies Under the Stars event that will be remembered the most. Watching a movie on the large inflatable screen outdoors was unique, fun, and enjoyed by all.
