    How to Plan an Outdoor Movie Night


    See the stars in your own backyard … on your DIY big screen, that is.

    In the height of summer, your backyard or porch is headquarters for family time and date night alike. Combine both, and cue up a movie on your DIY movie screen for a staycation highlight.
