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.

With Inflatable Movie Screens You Can Show Outdoor Movie at School

Posted by Paul Murray on Wednesday Jul 30, 2014 Under Tips

Portable Outdoor Movie Screen

With the use of a portable movie screen, you can show outdoor movies at your school. There are many reasons for having a movie event on the school grounds. In the fall it is a terrific way to get the students and their families excited about returning back to school. What a way to kick off a new school year.

Outdoor movie events also make great fund raisers throughout the year. Best of all, these movies provide children, parents, and teachers a wonderful way to spend time together getting to know one another.

Where On the School Grounds Can You Show a Movie?

The modern technology behind portable movie screens allows the school’s PTA to host outdoor movie events in a variety of locations found on the school grounds.
• On the Playgrounds
• On the Baseball Fields
• In the Parking Lot

Any place where the large inflatable screen can be set up makes a perfect location for a school movie event. Many times the PTA will add to the fun and excitement by setting up games, concession stands, or food trucks. The ideas are unlimited when it comes to enjoying an outdoor movie.

Choosing the Right Outdoor Movie Rental Company

Not all outdoor movie rental companies are the same. Some will go that extra mile to ensure you, your guests, and everyone involved is happy while others will do the bare minimum. You want a company that becomes invested in your event, not just showing up for set up and removal.

There are a few things to look for when selecting which company to use. Look for one that advertises the brand of screen they use. You will also want to know the screen’s wind rating. The last thing anyone wants is to have a large screen blow over. Keep your movie event memorable for positive reasons.

You more than likely don’t have a power supply in the location you’ve selected such as the ball field. Your outdoor movie rental company should have a generator for these situations. Make sure that their generators run quietly. No one wants to try to hear the movie over the loud drone of a machine.

Timing Is Important

When choosing an outdoor movie rental company understand what time they can start the movie for you.
Not all screens are made the same. High end screens allow the rental company to begin at sundown when there is still a soft glow of light. Companies without the better screens, such as DJs, have to wait for complete darkness before starting the movie.

The difference in starting a movie early or late can be anywhere from 40 to 60 minutes. This can be huge to families with smaller children who need to get to bed. It also isn’t much fun for the adults to get home late from the school’s movie event and have to try to get up for work the next day.

By knowing what to look for when planning your school’s outdoor movie, you’ll have a successful event that everyone will remember. It will be the perfect kick off to the year, fund raiser, or simply a good reason to gather with friends and family.

5 Movies to Watch to Get ready to go Back to School

Posted by Paul Murray on Monday Jul 28, 2014 Under Movie Articles

Movies About Back To School

While going back to school can bring about a mixed basket of emotions, there is one way to get ready for the occasion quite effectively and that is to watch a great movie. Here are 5 great movies to get you ready to go back to school.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower stars Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Ezra Miller, and follows the trio through the unforgettable journey that is “growing up”. It is the story of just how important friendship is, and of how hard it can be to get through all of life’s obstacles without it. The Perks of Being a Wallflower shows us that true friendship will last through the ups and downs that come with growing up.

17 Again

Matthew Perry is Mike O’ Donnell, a 30 something husband and father living a life that doesn’t really fall under his category of dream lives. It’s been nearly 20 years since Mike made a decision that put him on his current life course and miraculously, he is given a second chance to decide differently. Placed back in his 17 year old body (but in current 2009 rather than 1989), Mike finds himself back on the basketball court at high school and in line to be picked by several college recruiters. The question is, will he make the same choice and choose love and responsibility over an altered future that could easily change his present day situation forever? 17 Again is a story of choices, and just how important the one’s that we make throughout life can be.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Matthew Broderick stars as Ferris Bueller, a high school legend who made his fame by successfully cutting classes more than any other individual in his high school. As graduation draws near, Ferris feels the need to successfully cut out of school one last time and he is determined to make it an occasion to remember. Watch as Ferris “borrows” a Ferrari and roams wild through the streets of Chicago with his two best friends, and watch as Principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) makes every attempt to catch up with them in the process.

Monsters University

Monsters University tells the story of friendship and how it can spring up between even the most unlikely individuals. James P. Sullivan and Mike Wazowski are a couple of monsters attending the local area Monsters University. When they first meet, it is quite obvious that they can’t stand each other but things change and friendship grows creating an inseparable bond between Sully and Mike. Watch Monsters University and learn just what changed the lives of this monster pair forever.

The School of Rock

Dewey Finn (Jack Black) is an out of work heavy metal guitarist pushed to the edge when he is kicked out of his own band and replaced with a “would be” guitar god one day. After unsuccessfully winning the regional “battle of the bands”, Dewey finds himself with no way to pay the bills. He manages to intercept a phone call for his roommate with an offer for a job as a substitute teacher at an elementary school for gifted kids. Dewey assumes the role of his roomie Ned (Mike White) with no experience in teaching elementary school aged kids whatsoever. Luckily for Dewey, his class of students are gifted in an area that he has a passion for and that is music. One thing leads to another and the kids form a band that lands Dewey right back at the regional “battle of the bands” once again. But will the all tween band have any chance at winning against Dewey’s former band? The only way to find the answer to that question is to watch The School of Rock today.

Fund-raising Movie Night

Posted by Paul Murray on Monday Apr 28, 2014 Under Event Productions

Fund-raising movie night at school

Every school has a parent teacher organization that is always looking for terrific ways to raise money. The best events are ones that both the parents and students will find fun to go to, as well as help out with. One school came up with an extremely successful way of accomplishing this.

Rather than holding yet another bake sale, craft fair, or the likes, this school came up with the idea of a movie night at the school. Although it may at first sound like a huge undertaking, these types of events are actually fun for the whole family and easy to organize. Best of all the school earned quite a bit of much needed money.

To pull it all together, the PTA got busy planning. They contacted several local people and businesses to be sponsors. In return, their message or ad was shown on the inflatable screen before the main feature began. Their organizing paid off with enough funds to cover the movie production and licensing fees. There was even some left over to show for their fund raising efforts. This was added to money brought in from activities, food sales, and silent auctions that made the movie night a huge success.

To get the school ready for the event, teachers and parents worked together to recreate a theater setting inside of the school. The gymnasium was used as the area for the actual movie viewing. It worked out perfectly. An inflatable screen was set up, and plenty of mats and chairs were made available for seating.

Movie night and games at school

Before the family friendly movie was played, guests could take part in numerous games such as the ring toss and cake walk. Classrooms were utilized as designated spots for each activity. One room was set up as a game room with foosball and air hockey that the younger students really enjoyed playing. Another was used for karaoke that both the kids and adults had a great time participating in.

Auction during movie night

The teachers were able to help out even more so by offering their services for a silent auction. Many offered themselves for picnic or pizza lunches that the winner and a friend could enjoy with them. A paper was hung up with their picture, name, and offering. Underneath was a clip board where guests could “bid.” It was an excellent way to earn additional funds while getting to know their students families better.

The PTA knew that food is a big part of the movie night experience. Concession stands were set up that mimicked ones found in the movie theaters. They sold all sorts of movie time snacks such as bags of popcorn and candy. Beverages such as Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, and bottled water were also available. Each item was sold for a dollar with proceeds benefiting the fund raiser. Outside there was a food truck selling pizza and a shaved ice cart located near plenty of benches for customers to sit on while enjoying their treats.

Movie Night Snacks

After lots of socializing, game playing, and eating, everyone gathered in front of the inflatable screen in the gymnasium for their main attraction. A family friendly movie that was appropriate for all ages was shown.

Photobooth during Movie Night at school

Once the movie night came to a conclusion, all agreed that it truly was a successful PTA fundraiser in every way. The community had fun organizing it and attending it, and best of all, they were able to raise a nice amount of money for their school.

Movie Night Teaches About Anti-Bullying In A Fun Way

Posted by Paul Murray on Wednesday Apr 2, 2014 Under Event Productions

Movie night teaches about anti-bullying in a fun way

One school has come up with a wonderful way to get the message about bullying out to the students. Children tend to retain information better through fun activities and events. By using a family movie night in the school’s gymnasium, the teachers and organizers were able to bring awareness about bullying to the community while providing everyone with a fun night of entertainment.

The organizers of this movie night event included teachers and parents of the students who want to put an end to bullying in their school. In preparation for the big event, an inflatable movie screen was set up inside of the gymnasium. They even arranged a concession table to mimic a theater atmosphere. They offered pizza, chips, beverages, and other goodies to all those in attendance. They also set up a welcome table at the entrance of their venue.

Concessions at indoor movie night at school

As guest entered the room they had to pass this welcome table. This is where tickets for concession items were being sold. Organizers also set out anti-bullying petitions. Students were encouraged to sign it and stop bullying in their school. As an incentive, each child who signed received bonus tickets for the concession stand.

Anti-bullying petition at movie night

Once everyone had signed the petition and picked out their treats, it was time for movie night. Parents and students found places to sit while waiting for the family friendly Hollywood movie to begin. This is where organizers took another opportunity to bring awareness to the issue of bullying. Before the main feature, a slideshow accompanied by popular music was shown. It consisted of fun trivia intermixed with anti-bullying messages. Students received the information easily, as it was made more exciting than simply listening to yet another lecture on the issue.

The slideshow was followed by their main presentation of a popular family movie shown on the blowup OpenAir movie screen. Teachers, students, and parents were all able to relax and enjoy some wholesome entertainment together in the school gymnasium. The evening was a huge success, and the school is now able to benefit from the knowledge each child received on how bullying is never the right thing to do.
