Hot Tub Movie Night: How to Set Up the Perfect Outdoor Theater
If you haven’t tried watching your favorite movie under the stars while soaking in a hot tub with friends, here’s your sign to give it a go! Hot tub movie nights have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. Not only is it a great way to unwind and de-stress, but it’s also a fun and unique way to spend time with friends and family. So, how can you set up the perfect outdoor theater for your hot tub movie night? Here are some tips to get you started.
Choose the Right Screen
The first step in setting up your outdoor theater is to choose the right screen. There are a variety of options available, ranging from inflatable screens to DIY setups using a white sheet or projector screen. When selecting a screen, consider factors such as size, durability, and ease of setup. You’ll also want to ensure that the screen is compatible with your projector and can withstand any outdoor elements. If you want to make hot tub movie night a regular occurrence, consider adding a wireless 22” screen to your HotSpringⓇ Spa
Set Up Your Projector
Once you’ve chosen your screen, it’s time to set up your projector. Make sure that your projector is compatible with your screen and has the necessary connectivity options (such as HDMI or VGA). You’ll also want to ensure that your projector is positioned at the right distance and angle to avoid any distortion or blurring.
Choose Your Sound System
A good sound system is crucial for any outdoor movie night, and hot tub movie nights are no exception. Depending on the size of your hot tub area, you may want to consider a wireless or portable speaker system. Alternatively, you can connect your projector to your home theater system using an audio cable. Make sure that your sound system is loud enough to be heard over the sound of your hot tub jets. Another option is to use your HotSpring Spa’s Bluetooth® sound system, which is designed to produce superior sound quality, even over the bubbling jets.
Outdoor movie nights can be enhanced with some creative lighting. Consider adding string lights or lanterns around the hot tub area to create a cozy atmosphere. You can also place candles or torches around the area for a warm and inviting glow.
Choose the Right Movie
The final step in setting up your perfect hot tub movie night is to choose the right movie. Consider the preferences of your guests, as well as the atmosphere you’re trying to create. Romantic comedies or feel-good movies are great for a relaxing night in the hot tub, while horror movies or thrillers can add some excitement to the evening. Don’t forget to check the weather forecast before choosing your movie, and have a backup plan in case of rain or other unforeseen circumstances.
