With the weather getting warmer, we are looking for fun ways to spend time outdoors. One unique way is to watch your favorite movies under the stars! We recently worked with FunFlicks to host a backyard movie party and had so much fun. Take a look at our experience with FunFlicks:
When I was growing up, we regularly went to the Drive-in to see a movie. Unfortunately, now-a-days, when you mention a drive-in to most kids, they look at you a little crazy. The popularity of drive-in movies is long gone but the ability to watch a movie outdoors is not. It’s actually quite easy to host an outdoor movie with FunFlicks.
What is FunFlicks?
FunFlicks is a company based in Round Rock that specializes in helping you host an Outdoor Movie event. From backyard movie parties to neighborhood events, FunFlicks has a variety of inflatable screens, projectors and sound systems for all sizes of crowds. Rather than mess with setting up the equipment yourself (and crossing your fingers that it all works correctly), FunFlicks will set it up AND stay there for the whole event to make sure everything runs smoothly.
I love that FunFlicks is a business that was started right here in Round Rock and have grown to be a nationwide company. But they still offer that hometown customer service that we come to expect with a local business.
I recently worked with FunFlicks to host a movie night in my backyard for teenagers. They brought a 12′ X 9′ screen, and all the equipment to run the movie. All we had to do was provide the DVD. AS the host of the party, it was a great relief to not have to mess with any of the equipment to run the movie. They also brought a popcorn machine and kept the popcorn going though out the evening (additional cost).
Outdoor Movie Ideas with FunFlicks
Backyard Movie Night
Host a party with up to 75 of your friends in your backyard or driveway and show a fun movie or live TV event. We hosted a Sweet 16 Birthday in our backyard with popcorn and movie candy snacks. We spread out lots of blankets on our lawn and started the movie just after dusk. Everyone loved it!
Neighborhood or School Movie Night
Movie Night is always a fun event to throw for a large neighborhood association or school event. You can have a fun contest to select the movie (FunFlicks can help you easily obtain the correct movie licensing), have a BBQ or Ice Cream Bar to go along with it, and invite guests to bring chairs to set up. FunFlicks has larger screens to accommodate your crowd.
Much like the 2 above ideas, a movie night is really a fun event for your co-workers to enjoy together and with families. Bring together your employees for a fun appreciation event. Again, FunFlicks has various sizes of screens to accommodate up to 5000+ people.
Superb Customer Service with FunFlicks
As I mentioned, I have experience working with FunFlicks and can say that they made it a very easy process. You can book your event (and even just get a quote) on their website or call them direct. I simply expand what I wanted to do, and they walked me through all the steps to be ready for the party. To be honest, it was very few – they do all the work – from set-up to clean-up
With summer approaching, a movie night with FunFlicks is a really fun idea. And as we always recommend here with Round the Rock, look to support our local businesses here first. Have a fun summer Round Rock!
