How to Host An Outdoor Easter Movie Night?

Setting up the outdoor Easter movie night does not have to be complicated. All you need to do is gather the essentials, set up the movie screen, and prepare the area for the movie night. Here are the detailed steps you need to follow to throw a successful outdoor Easter movie night.

Gather the Essentials

The projector is one of the most essential components for the Easter movie night. You will also need a movie screen that can be easy to set up within a few minutes. Hook a streaming device to the projector so you can stream any Easter movie.

Since most of these essentials will require steady electricity to work, consider investing in a portable and powerful Jackery Solar Generator. These battery-powered generators feature safe and efficient NMC or LiFePO4 batteries to charge appliances for long hours.

Set Up the Movie Screen

Before the guests arrive, start by setting up the movie screen near the large, blank wall. Now, set up the projector on any flat surface and test the positioning of all these appliances. Most projectors need an electrical outlet, so make sure to place the power station nearby.

Add Seating Arrangement

Once the setup is completed, start arranging the patio furniture and lounge chairs so everyone can remain comfortable. If the night seems to be a little colder, light the fire pit or turn on the patio heater. On the other hand, if the temperature is hot, have some mini coolers and fans ready. If you want to add extra appeal to the space, add rugs, pillows, and blankets.

Serve Easter Themed Snacks

Outdoor movie night is incomplete without Easter-themed snacks. You can offer bunny-shaped cookies, sour candies, Easter chocolate eggs, and more. Consider placing a cooler filled with ice in the movie night area to ensure drinks are served cold. Remember to set out hand sanitizers, cloth napkins, and trash cans to clean up the snacks and drinks at the night's end.

Easter Movies  FAQs

What size of solar generator do I need for an outdoor movie night?

The size of the solar generator required for an outdoor movie night will depend on the number of appliances you are charging, their wattage consumption, and the number of hours you want to power them.

Here is an example:

Suppose you are simultaneously charging a projector (100 W), movie screen (280 W), and LED lights (10 W) with the Jackery Solar Generator 2000 Plus. The working time of the battery-powered generator will be:

Working Time = Battery Capacity in Wh * 0.85 / Wattage Consumption of Appliances = 2042.8 Wh * 0.85 / 390 W = 4.4 H.

We have multiplied the battery capacity by 0.85 as there will be some power loss when charging the outdoor appliances.

Are there any movies about Easter?

There are many Easter movies to watch, including A Week Away, Easter Sunday, I Can Only Imagine, Risen, Peter Rabbit, and Jesus Christ Superstar.

What is a good Easter movie about Jesus?

There are hundreds of movies about the Easter story of Jesus Christ, such as The Passion of the Christ, The Gospel of John, Ben-Hur, The Miracle Maker, and King of Kings.

What is the new movie about Easter?

Easter Sunday is a 2022 American comedy movie starring Jo Koy. The film is based on Jo Koy's life experiences and the celebration of Easter Sunday. Some other Easter movies include Risen and Testament: The Story of Moses.

Final Thoughts

If you are looking for a biblical Easter movie, there's no shortage of choices. While religious movies include Risen and The Last Temptation of Christ, you can find many inspirational movies like I Can Only Imagine. After picking out one of these Easter movies, be sure to gather the appliances required to host an outdoor movie night. Additionally, you may consider Jackery Solar Generators to charge most of the appliances during outdoor movie nights, including projectors, movie screens, LED lights, TVs, mini-refrigerators, and more!
