Host your own backyard cinema club

Why not host your own summer screening outdoors?

This time of year calls for more excuses to get together and enjoy the warmer weather and what better way to do it than watching your favourite flick with a cold one in the sun? We’re vacating the sofa and hosting our own movie night outdoors and here’s how. Popcorn at the ready.

Forget those pricey outdoor summer screenings. Hosting your own is easy as. And the best part? Unlimited drinks and snacks, at no extra cost. If it’s for a birthday, print off some movie stubs and DIY a little goody bag full of treats. Original, or what?

Once the movie starts, you don’t want to be faffing with refills in the kitchen all night long. This handy dispenser makes it easy. Pop in some Pimm’s or your own summer punch and stack the table with a few plastic cups that won’t shatter when you shout “bottoms up!”.

The comfort factor

Though it’s romantic, lying on the lawn all evening and looking up at the stars is not the most comfortable of situations. Our outdoor cushions are made for your cinema evening: stylish, comfy and water resistant. Perfect for when it inevitably rains and you have to hurry back inside.
