In planning your outdoor movie series you will want to be aware of the following items.
Power - If there is not power within 100 feet of your screening location, generators may need to be brought in.
Restrooms - You will need restroom facilities to accommodate your crowd. If the restrooms are a little walk from the viewing area you may need to bring in signs and volunteers to direct.
Lights - Make sure any bright lights that shine on the movie screen can be turned off before the movie. Also take into consideration that when the movie ends there needs to be enough light for people to exit. In some locations additional flood lights may need to be brought in.
Crowd Control / Security
Have plenty of well marked staff and volunteers if possible. Security should always be well marked and visible.
Popcorn, drinks, fun movie food as well as shirts, glow sticks and other items are all opportunities for your group or organization to raise funds. Chair rentals have done well too.
