We have two answers for that. The quick answer is no - not with projection. We use extra bright projectors which allow for earlier visibility - usually used for pre-show promos - but projection simply can't compete with daylight. We are also partnered with a production company and when requested, will use an LED display for daytime events.
We sure do! We are based in Ontario, but have hosted events across many provinces. Feel free to contact us with your location and event date and we will happily quote our services for you.
We can quote literally set up out Outdoor Movie events anywhere. Park spaces and fields are most common, but your imagination is the only limit for us. Rooftops, barges, back yards, pools, lakes, beaches, concrete, artificial turf, you name it!
When showing an Outdoor Movie in a public format you will need a license to show that film to be legal. There are three license providers in Canada: ACF, Criterion and the NFB of Canada. We will assist you in obtaining your license. Please see our Movie License page for all the details.
Yes. We carry $5 Million liability. This covers incidents related to our equipment and/or crew. We do recommend obtaining your own that would cover the rest of your event. This is called General Liability Insurance and is usually fairly inexpensive.
For most of our shows we play music before the movie starts to keep the crowd entertained. We require a license to legally play that music in a public format much like the movie licenses. This is an annual license we purchase and doesn't cost you anything.
Most outdoor screening events are for one film. That being said, if you want to pull an all-nighter we would be happy to stick around! There is an additional charge of course, so let us know what you have in mind at the time of quoting. Multi-day events? No problem - we do that too!
For Outdoor & Inflatable Movies screen we project from the front. The outdoor movie screen surface (the white part) will provide the best image when it's solid white. Rear projection surfaces lose light and can affect the image greatly. We always ensure projection equipment does not interfere with the audience's experience.
We only use HD projection and all of our projectors are high-lumen units. Our largest projector is 15,000 lumens! To put that into perspective, your average home theatre projector is 2,500-3,500 lumens. We aim to please.
Technically you could. The cost of licensing would eclipse our services - and then some! Typically we show DVD release titles and Pre-Release titles (movies that are out of theatre, but not on DVD yet). See our licensing page for more details.
That's a no. We will project anything that is provided to us! Want to play Wii or X-Box? No problem. Watch the Stanley Cup or Superbowl? Let's do it! Use the screen for live camera feeds or slide shows? Absolutely. There is almost no limit. Try us.
There are a couple of options. If we are on site or on our way, and your event is cancelled we will re-schedule your event and you simply cover our labour costs for that day or we can move to an indoor facility making your event rain or shine.
