Dimensions of outdoor movie screen


Can it be used in the daytime?

Just like a drive-in, it can't be used during the day as there is too much ambient light for the projection to show.

If you need a daylight screen, have a look at large LCD/LED screens.


What is the "seating" capacity?

Our outdoor movie setup can accomodate around 1,500 people comfortably.


What sort of things can I show on the screen?


For example:

  • DVD movies (licensing required)
  • Advertising slideshow
  • Home movies
  • Student productions
  • Short film festivals
  • Live action (eg: from a stage)
  • Games Console (eg: PlayStation, Wii)
  • Television broadcasts (eg: State of Origin)


How much does it cost to licence a movie?

Movie licensing fees vary according to location, estimated crowd numbers, etc. Fees are usually in the ballpark of $600-$700, however school groups generally have a lower price.
