With the rainy weather soon set to subside, how about bringing your movie nights to the balcony or back garden? Super accessible, projectors are readily available online, and a flat white bed sheet affixed or hung to a wall makes the perfect make-shift cinema screen.
But to take your private screening to the next level, some simple accessories will make all the difference. From simple scatter cushions, to deluxe daybeds, these seven additions will help you curate the ultimate outdoor cinema experience.
If you’re after luxurious lounging, then this boujee take on a classic beanbag chair won’t disappoint. Essentially a chaise lounge for your garden, it’s been expertly engineered with breathable vents and a special polybead filling so you can keep cool while you snuggle up in style!

For a cosy ambience, hang these warm solar string lights around your screen or seating area and enjoy their subtle glow. We love that the lights are encased in on-trend copper cages that have been made extra durable for easy outdoor use.
With socialising restrictions still in place, hosting a big group of friends in your garden for an outdoor movie night is a great swap for an indoor bash. Make it extra special by displaying the film programme with a rustic letter board like this one – which comes with 324 wooden sliding letters, numbers, and punctuation tiles.

Just because it’s summer, that doesn’t mean the evenings won’t get a little chilly! Boasting a glamorous black fabric shade, this chic patio heater looks like just the kind of accessory you’d expect to see in a boutique independent cinema. We love how much more stylish it is than your typical table top heater.
For the full American summer camp experience, toasting marshmallows over a fire while you watch your movie is a must. With its vintage stripes in rose and off-white, and natural eucalyptus wooden handle, this retro barbecue bucket is the perfect portable addition to your al fresco evenings.

Scatter a couple of these Ibiza-inspired floor cushions on a rug or blanket for an informal and boho cinema setting. We love the boutique and laid-back style of the natural striped design, and could see ourselves lounging very comfortably thanks to the soft cotton case and plump polyester filling.
