Funflicks outdoor movie rental $199 in Atlanta

Many of you who belong to a PTA/PTO organization or host school events for grades ranging from elementary school to college know how important it is to have events that are both fun and successful. Holding an outdoor movie event in the Atlanta Georgia area is an excellent way to get people to come to your function as well as guarantee that everyone will have a good time and leave with memories that will last a lifetime.

Choosing the Right Movie Rental Company

When you begin to plan your function you will find there are several cinema companies out there who do outdoor movie events. Choosing the right one ensures a successful evening that both the host and guests can enjoy. There are some inflatable movie screen equipment rental companies in Atlanta that offer their services for as low as $199 or $299. Don’t ignore that red flag telling you that this sounds too good to be true.

Inexpensive outdoor movie night

There are many reasons why these companies are so cheap. Several of them can offer these unbelievably low rates because they are providing their outdoor movie equipment as additional income to their main operation. They are not experts in the outdoor movie event production. DJs often offer movie services. You’ll also find mom and pop companies doing outdoor movie events as a side job. This can be a problem because these people are not focusing fully on your movie experience. Cheap or faulty equipment combined with their lack of knowledge can result in a disappointing event for you and your guests.

Inflatable Screen Quality

There are also inflatable movie screen rental companies that have low prices due to the inflatable screen system they are using. Companies who purchase inexpensive, non-commercial grade screens cannot give you the best movie viewing experience. As a result the quality of your outdoor movie event will suffer.

There are many different kinds of inflatable outdoor movie screens. Understanding their differences can help you choose the best rental company available. Some of these screens are made for one or two time use at home. They are meant to be discarded after that. Others are made by manufacturers who produce things other than movie screens such as bounce houses. Typically these movie screens are unattractive and will have wrinkles which distort the movie image.

You’ll also find that the projection surface or the white screen surface where the movie is shown on some inflatable movie screens is not a real movie screen surface like you would find in an actual theater. This will make the picture look dull or appear to be the wrong color. We even came across a movie screen that made everything look green. When you choose Southern Outdoor Cinema you can rest assured that you are getting a real theatrical screen surface on the inflatable movie screen equipment.

The Benefits of an Early Start

Another factor to consider is whether or not you can begin your event before sunset. Due to the quality of their screen surface and the types of projectors used by these cheaper providers, images cannot be on the screen until after dark. Southern Outdoor Cinema can start their movie projection up to an hour before most of their competitors. This allows you to have an earlier movie start time. That’s an important consideration if you’re having young children at your event. Parents won’t want to keep their kids out late.

Earlier start times also give more time for displaying sponsor advertising. As a client you’ll be able to make money off the event by showing your advertising for at least 20 minutes before the movie begins. You’ll also find you won’t have guests sitting in the dark waiting for the feature film to start. Southern Outdoor Cinema has found that the best part of watching an outdoor movie is the setting of the venue. Seeing a beautiful sunset in the background when the movie begins playing can be breathtaking.

What to Do When Hiring a Movie Company

It’s important to check the price quotes for your outdoor movie event. Obtain references from recent clients that have worked with the rental company you are considering. Visiting an event that is being produced by that company will allow you to see exactly what level of quality you’ll be getting. Many competitors will lie about the size of the screen they are using, but with Southern Outdoor Cinema you’ll find you get exactly what you would expect to make your outdoor movie event a complete success.

Are Your School Fundraisers Exciting?

Posted by Paul Murray on Monday Sep 10, 2012 Under Tips

Fundraisers for schools and other organizations are incredibly important. For schools, fundraisers raise money for important special events to benefit the children. A fundraiser is a great way to raise money for your organization or cause, but it can be difficult to decide what type of fundraiser to organize. It is important to come up with new ideas to keep people excited about raising money.

A PTO hosts a movie night as a fundraising event.

If you have children in school, you are probably familiar with fundraisers. You have probably been asked to help raise money for your school PTO by selling chocolate, magazine subscriptions, wrapping paper or other items. The problem with this type of fundraiser is that parents and children are required to ask friends, family and neighbors to buy items they most likely do not need. Parents may not wish to sell to friends and family and they may have limited time to solicit sales, collect the money and deliver the items. This type of fundraiser gets old and can be especially troubling for families with several children in school. Many families want to support the school or organization, but experience fundraiser fatigue and simply tune-out and no longer support these programs. If this is happening at you school or organization, it is time to make a change to a new style of fundraising. Outdoor movies events are a great alternative fundraising idea. (Click here to retweet.)

Outdoor movie events make for great fundraisers for several reasons. First, outdoor movies appeal to children and adults of all ages. You can tailor your event to specific audiences through your movie selection. At an elementary school, for example, choose a popular movie that is appropriate for children and families. Second, outdoor movie event fundraisers can be stress-free to organize with the assistance of outdoor movie equipment providers who offer full turn-key productions. Next, this type of event can easily be promoted within your organization. Hang posters and utilize social media if your organization maintains a presence. For a school, send information about the event home in student’s backpacks. Finally, you will be able to raise valuable dollars for your organization or cause while enjoying a fun event.

Fundraisers shouldn’t give parents or supporters of your organization a bad feeling. Fresh, fun fundraising ideas that do not require selling are a great way to beat fundraising fatigue and gather more support for your organization or cause. Plan an exciting outdoor movie event fundraiser and have fun raising the money your organization needs.
