Outdoor Movie Night
Enjoy your favorite flick outdoors! Rent an inflatable movie screen from your local party supply store to watch your most-loved movie with friends under the stars. For seats, just throw out some comfy blankets and bean bag chairs on the lawn.
Don’t forget to create your own concession stand so everyone has something to munch on throughout the screening. Set out boxes of candy, buckets of popcorn, and all of your favorite drinks. You can even make your own slushies if an ICEE is your favorite theatre treat! A great show, yummy snacks, and your best friends will make for a blockbuster birthday.
