Set up a Projector
Acquiring a projector can come in handy for more than just backyard movie night. There is an array of different projector types on the market ranging in price and quality. Once you’ve decided which is best for your purposes, you’ll want to set up it on a stable surface where it is far enough away from the screen and won’t be blocked by the audience.
Source the Media
Once your projector is set up, you’ll need to decide on a video source. Is the movie being played from a DVD player, a laptop, a media streamer, or a Blu-ray player? That device will need to be powered, along with the projector, and hooked up to it as well.

Set up Speakers
Speaker placement is key. If there are neighboring homes nearby, you’ll most likely want to place the speakers close enough to your party and far enough from neighboring lots to not disturb the neighborhood.
Whether you’re using wireless or plug-in speakers will also matter because you’ll need a power source, and most devices can only pair to one Bluetooth speaker at a time. Therefore, you’ll need the speakers to be big enough and strategically placed so everyone can hear properly.
