Host movie nights outside under the stars with an outdoor projector

Watching movies outside is one of the best parts of summer. With an outdoor projector you can make movie nights a regular event at your house, and all you’ll need is your projector, a projector screen, and some popcorn to snack on.

Outdoor projector vs indoor projector

When you’re watching movies in the great outdoors, you need a projector that’s bright, portable, and has a resolution that can support the latest movies. You’ll find some models of backyard movie projector with waterproof cases and moisture-resistant covers to keep them free of water or the occasional splash. These are the type of projectors that you’ll mount outside in a permanent, covered spot.

For the occasional outdoor movie night, most people choose a home theatre or portable projector they’ll use inside and outside.

How to choose an outdoor projector

When looking for an outdoor movie projector, you’ll want to focus on a few different projector features. The first consideration is resolution, and you’ll find outdoor projectors with resolutions of 720p, 1080p Full HD, and 4K UHD.

How many lumens do outdoor projectors need to be?

An outdoor projector should be as bright as possible, so you’ll want to look for a model with high lumen output. Some models of backyard projector have 9500 to 10,000 lumens of brightness so they can still provide a clear, bright picture even if you have ambient light or a campfire nearby.

Outdoor projectors need to be lightweight

While you’ll find that laser projectors can project a brighter image than some models of lamp or LED projectors, a laser projector tends to be heavier and isn’t as easy to transport between house and yard or take with you camping. When choosing backyard projector or camping projector, you’ll want to look at models that fall under the portable or mini projector categories.

How large does your projector screen need to be?

An outdoor projector should be able to project a minimum screen size of 100 inches, and for the best possible experience you’ll want to project your movies onto an outdoor projector screen. You’ll find all types of outdoor projector screens including inflatable models that are easy to fold up when not in use.

Does your outside projector need smart features?

If you’d like to stream videos via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, you’ll want to choose a backyard movie projector with smart features. You can find many models with Wi-Fi built in, and some will also have slots to plug in a USB memory stick if you’re ever away from your home network.
