Earliest Movie Starting Time
Our projectors are bright enough to see images on the movie screen 15 minutes before sundown. For the best possible movie experience we always suggest starting the movie 5 minutes after sundown. Sunset times are available from SunriseSunset.com. Techs will begin playing music immediately after the screen is set up.
Do I Need A License?
The answer is that it depends. If you are hosting a backyard movie screen party in the privacy of your own home you will NOT need a film license. However if you plan on staging an outdoor movie night in a public place you need to purchase the appropriate non-theatrical license. We will help you with the entire process.
