Taking the Treasure Valley Home Theater Outdoors

Movie night in your Idaho home, reimagined. With warm weather headed our way, we just can’t wait to get outside and enjoy every minute of it! And family movie night doesn’t have to be an exception – take it outside!  Do you enjoy hosting your friends to watch your favorite sporting events gathered around the big screen in your media room? Imagine catching the game from the comfort of your covered patio instead or while afloat on a blow-up lounge chair in the pool! The best seat in the house may not be in the house after all!

You may already be streaming your music through outdoor speakers or watching your weatherproof LED while flipping burgers, but imagine amping up the entertainment by creating an outdoor theater under the stars with a larger-than-life projection screen?

A Blanket of Stars

An outdoor theater adds elegance and entertainment value to your outdoor living space. It can boast an exceptional image as well as uncompromised sound. And the sound system can be multi-use, filling the space with music during the day and heart-thumping theater audio at night.  You can either stream from your favorite movie service or share content directly from your media room system or home theater. But unlike your indoor theater, you won’t need to paint a constellation on the ceiling!

Rated for Mother Nature

Like other specialized outdoor AV gear, weather-resistant options are available for projectors and projection screens. Projectors can be housed in a climate-controlled mounting box or cleverly mounted for quick set-up on movie night. Screens can cleverly roll down from beneath your home’s eaves, pop-up from custom enclosures or occupy an outdoor wall. With limited to no “ceilings” to mount from however, determining where the projector can be installed can require some creativity. And added throw distance and lumens may be required to achieve exceptional picture quality. Fortunately, we at The Loop are exceptional at this!

Stay in Control

For uninterrupted enjoyment you’ll want a robust network and remote control to access your home’s system. Several waterproof remotes are available, giving you the ability to control everything -even when you’re in the pool! Control of elegantly designed landscape and patio lighting completes the outdoor living space. Lighting can accent feature areas and walkways for drama and safety while allowing separate control of zones surrounding the screen area.
