What Type Of Gazebo Do You Need?

When it comes to picking a gazebo, the long list of choices is endless! Firstly, you should perhaps visualise the gazebo in your outdoor space and base your choice preference on size, style and cost! Look at how much room you have, what size will fit just nicely in your garden? Then, look at styles. Would you prefer to opt for a more durable wooden type of gazebo or perhaps a more summery-looking tent type of gazebo? You may even envision light shining through as the sun sets and opt for a Pergola instead. The sky is the limit when creating your dreamy garden set-up.

What Else Do I Need For An Outdoor Cinema?

When it comes to creating your outdoor cinema, the options are also, endless! You can set up a big screen or use your home TV, put out some deck chairs and blankets for seating, set up a mini bar with snacks and drinks, and decorate with fairy lights and flowers. Here are some reasons why each of these ideas will help make your outdoor cinema experience even better:

A Big Screen:

A big screen is essential for a great outdoor cinema experience! Not only does it give everyone a good view of the movie, but it also helps to create an immersive and festive atmosphere.

Deck Chairs And Blankets:

It can often be quite chilly at night time, so deck chairs and blankets are a must-have! They will help keep you warm and comfortable while you watch your favourite film. Although, if you have a large enough budget, outdoor sofas will definitely contribute to the cinema vibe.

Mini Bar:

What could be better than enjoying a delicious snack or drink while watching a movie under the stars? A minibar is a perfect addition to any outdoor cinema set-up. Purchase cocktail equipment and drink Vodka Martinis with James Bond!

Fairy Lights:

Fairy lights are always a must for creating a magical atmosphere! They can be used to decorate your gazebo or around the area where you will be sitting to really set the scene. Using fairy lights will 100% capture the instagrammable vibe of your outdoor movie theatre.

The Ultimate Inspiration...

If you want to be even more extra, here are some more ideas for your outdoor cinema:

Adding Curtains to the Gazebo:

If you really want to create an outdoor cinema that feels like a true escape, consider adding curtains to your gazebo. This will not only add some extra privacy, but it will also help to keep the wind out and make the space feel a little cosier.

Adding Surround Sound:

One of the best things about watching a movie outdoors is hearing the sound surrounding you! To get the most out of your experience, consider investing in some surround sound speakers. This will make you feel like you are right in the middle of the action.

A Fire Pit For Roasting Marshmallows:

What could be more fun than roasting marshmallows over a fire pit while watching a movie? This is the perfect way to complete your outdoor cinema experience and make it extra special.

So, there you have it! All the tips and tricks you need to create your very own outdoor cinema. Whether you decide to go all out with deck chairs, fairy lights, and a big screen, or keep it simple with just a gazebo and some blankets, we guarantee that you will have an unforgettable night. Gather your friends and family together for a movie night under the stars—let the good times roll!
