Don’t be Scared!

No, I’m not talking about the election. I wanted to do a Halloween recap! How did you celebrate? We set up the movie projector and outdoor movie screen in the backyard and enjoyed movie night in the crisp fall air.

It was a perfect night. The moon was playing peek-a-boo around the clouds to add to the spooky-ness of the evening. We enjoyed homemade pizza, yummy cocktails and a couple movies ~ right in our own backyard where we were safe and sound.

Here are the details. The set up couldn’t have been easier. I ordered the projector and the movie screen from Amazon.

Projector

This projector worked great and was easy to set up and use. As you can see, we plugged in our Amazon Fire Stick and we were able to quickly access many movie options for the evening. We chose a couple on Disney+.

Screen

While the projector does come with a screen, I chose to order this one because it comes with a frame. We don’t have any walls to attach a screen for viewing. I was able to assemble the frame and screen by myself in just a few minutes, it was quite easy.

If you click on either photo (the projector or screen) it will link you right to the item on Amazon, and yes, we get an affiliate link. We did purchase these items so I am not being paid to sing their praises.

I just can’t emphasize enough what a simple and enjoyable evening we had. Our children are grown so anything we can do to make memories and have them continue spending time with us we will try. This definitely fit the bill. Everyone had a great time and we can’t wait to do it again.
