How to Set Up an Outdoor Home Theater

How to Set Up an Outdoor Home Theater for a Backyard Movie Night

Summer nights are just around the corner, and that means more outdoor entertaining. A backyard home theater will amp up your summer barbeques and be the envy of the neighborhood. Putting together an outdoor movie theater might seem difficult or expensive, but it doesn't have to be. With just a few simple pieces of equipment you can be the neighborhood hotspot with your own backyard movies, and the bonus is that equipment can pull double-duty for your indoor home theater next winter. But let's not talk about winter right now.

Here's what you'll need for your backyard home theater:

  1. Home theater projector.
  2. Although the projector will be your biggest investment, they are now more affordable than ever. You can find a high-performance home theater projector for as low as $549! Your biggest considerations should be regarding brightness, contrast ratio and resolution (see our recommendations below). A lightweight projector will make set up even more convenient and mobile. Some projectors have built in speakers that might be good enough for your outdoor movies, but if you want true surround sound and theater-style presence, you'll want to add an external speaker system. Some projectors have a built in DVD player and docking station for your iPhone or iPad, but most will require an external DVD player via an HDMI port. These types of models will keep up better with changing technologies. See our current projector specials for the best values.

    Key projector specs for your outdoor home theater:

    • Brightness: A minimum of 2,000 lumens
    • High Contrast Ratio: 2,000:1 or greater
    • Resolution: High definition 720p or 1080p
