No need to drive to the theater when it’s in your backyard. And while you could always hang a sheet on your garage and place a projector on the roof of your car to get the drive-in experience, we recommend locating your temporary theater in the backyard. A sheet, portable projector, and a few chairs are all you need for the perfect night at the movies.
