Movies are a great way to unwind and to explore the world around us. The setting you are in while watching the movie is just as important as the movie itself. Here are some of the best locations to relax while enjoying your favorite movie.
In a Tent
Pitch a tent in the backyard or with sheets in the living room for a fun way to feel cozy. You can bring the TV in the tent and make shadow puppets on the walls during the film. Don't forget to bring a bowl of popcorn.
In the Bed of a Truck
During the warm summer nights, the best times are those spent in the great outdoors. Bring a laptop along to watch a film with a few blankets to sit on. You'll be able to feel comfortable while watching the stars overhead during the movie.
On the Beach
Few things are as relaxing as spending time on the sand and hearing the waves crash just feet away. Bring a laptop along or portable DVD player for an enchanting setting that will allow you to watch a movie on the beach. You can even enjoy the warmth of a nearby bonfire while roasting a few s'mores during the film.
On a Balcony
Enjoy a film outdoors without having to leave your home. A great way to watch a movie is outdoors on a balcony where you can stay warm with a blanket. You'll also be able to enjoy views of the surrounding scenery.
In the Park
Find a fun slide to sit on, or perhaps a pair of swings, where you can watch a movie in a setting that reminds you of your childhood. Try watching the film at night where you can enjoy the sounds of crickets and view the stars overhead. You can also bring a blanket along to watch a movie under a large tree.
In a Pool
During the summer, stay entertained in the pool by mounting a projection screen outdoors, which can be viewed from the water. You can enjoy lounging in an inflatable raft while having an incredible view of the big screen. Remember to have a refreshing drink nearby while in the pool.
At the Drive-In
Live like you're in the '50s by taking a visit to a local drive-in. You'll be able to watch a movie from your car or sit in patio chairs outdoors while viewing a movie with hundreds of other movie lovers.
In a Tree House
Escape into a tree house, which will offer a cozy and adventurous setting to watch a movie in. Pack snacks ahead of time and enjoy the outdoor views. It will prove to be a fun hideaway that will become a favorite when watching your favorite films.
On a Road Trip
To help the time pass when on a road trip, watch a movie in the car for a great way to stay entertained. You can pop in a comedy or chick flick instead of having to stare out the window for hours on end.
In the Woods
Get lost in the woods and watch a movie in the enchanting setting for a location that will offer beautiful views. Bring a charged DVD player or computer along, while also packing a blanket and some bug spray.
Under a Blanket
Get cozy on a date or with your significant other by watching a movie under a blanket. You can bring a few snacks in for a warm setting that is perfect when it's raining or snowing outside. Sit under the blanket on a couch or on a bed for a comfortable experience.
With a Selection of Snacks
Movies aren't enjoyable to watch without a few snacks to munch on during the film. Pack gummies, popcorn, and a few types of chocolate candy for a great way to stay full while seeing your favorite actors on the big screen.
In a Bath Tub
For a creative way to unwind and enjoy a luxurious bath, watch a movie while soaking in the suds. You can install a television in the bathroom and enjoy relaxing in the bubble bath while enjoying your favorite flick.
On a Train
In between views of the outside city or countryside, watch a movie on a relaxing train ride for a chance to escape. You can bring a laptop or DVD player, which will make for a ride that will feel shorter. It will allow you to enjoy a long commute to work or have fun while taking a trip hundreds of miles away.
On an Airplane
Pass time on planes by putting on a film at thousands of feet in the air. You can relax with your own headset and enjoy escaping while you await to arrive at your destination.
At a Themed Watch Party
Make an event out of watching a movie with a themed watch party where your friends are invited to come over. You can use decor, appetizers, and costumes based on the movie's theme to set the mood. Make room for plenty of seating and hand out awards for the best dressed.
At The Theatre
There is nothing better than the smell of freshly popped--unburnt--popcorn to really get you in the mood for a movie. The large screen experience is one that just can't be matched at home, unless you have teenie-boppers texting and giggling behind you.
Cruises are an amazing way to vacation; you get to see the world and visit islands that are difficult to travel to by plane. Watching movies while at sea is an excellent way to add to the enjoyment. Just avoid watching "Titanic" or "Poseidon."
