I don’t know about you, but sitting in a dark enclosed space with a bunch of strangers does not sound super ideal to me right now. Yep, I’m talking about movie theaters. Even as we head into phases where theaters can start to open back up, you won’t find me there — especially after AMC wasn’t going to require masks to avoid “political controversy.”
You might be in the same boat here where you’re missing the big screen experience but won’t be stepping foot in a movie theater for who knows how long. Until then, you can turn your home or backyard into a theater with a projector. You’ll just need a screen or flat, plain surface to project on to get a legit theater setup — plus, the snacks will be a hell of a lot cheaper.
We found a few indoor and outdoor projectors on sale as of June 29.
Take this portable projector outside or keep it indoors. It’s wireless, allowing you to project from your laptop, tablet, or phone while moving about freely.

Where to buy:
