Hosting Outdoor Movies in San Francisco
We’ve helped countless brands put together outdoor film screenings, and we’d love to help you with yours.

Bringing the Silver Screen to Your Outdoor San Francisco Event

For as long as many can remember the American public has always looked to Hollywood’s silver screen for entertainment, inspiration, and escapism. From the iconic drive in movie theaters around the country during the 1950’s, picking up your favorite flics at the local Blockbuster throughout the 1980s and 1990s, to eye popping 3C movie experiences in the last few years, going to the movies has been an American pastime that seems to transcend time itself. There is something nostalgic and magical about returning to where the love for film began at outdoor movies, and now you can bring that same magic and nostalgia to your next San Francisco event.


A Community Draw for Guests of All Ages

It may seem like it is so hard to please everyone these days but that is certainly not the case with a well-planned outdoor movie screening. The movies have historically been a place to unite the masses, whether it be a corporate event, fundraiser, reception, or school event, the movies have a way of bringing guests of all ages together for a simple night at the cinema all while enjoying a cozy night under the stars. Our event planners not only know of a wide variety of crowd pleasing films, but can also bring the movie theater tastes and comfort food to any outdoor venue. You can go classic with our movie theater style concession stands supplying popcorn, soda, treats, beer and cider on tap, hotdogs and more. Or you can elevate the outdoor movie experience with delicious catering from some of the best bistros, restaurants, and grills around San Francisco.


The Surprisingly Cost-Effective Hit for Huge Crowds

Looking to entertain a colossal crowd on a budget? Outdoor movie screenings are not only a great event for all ages but a great event for any budget due it’s surprisingly cost-effective nature. After the venue is secure, the screening equipment is supplied, unlike hosting an elaborate plated dinner, the more guests that are invited the price per head isn’t impacted at all. This saves you quite a lot of cash and even lends you some extra wiggle room for some popcorn and treats to be served at a concession stand or even throw in a beer garden. If you’re looking for simplicity and high satisfaction, a night under the stars is a smash hit every time.


Securing Film Screening Rights

Although there may not seem like a whole lot to it when it comes to showing an award-winning film to a large crowd with today’s technology but logistically there are still some hoops that need to be jumped through in order to make you’re your film screening doesn’t violate any copyright laws. Throughout the decades of putting on blockbuster hits for outdoor crowds up and down the west coast, our event planners know exact how to get all those special boxes checked off so you can host your favorite flic without dealing with all the hassle and paperwork that comes along with it.


Finding the Perfect Outdoor Screening Venue in San Francisco

San Francisco has a lot going on, from historical monuments, to modern skyscrapers, to the spacious public parks. There are plenty of places to see but it may be hard to track down the perfect place for an outdoor film screening. The perfect outdoor screening venue requires lots of space for guests to spread out and watch their film, a large flat viewing area so that way there is plenty of viewing room for your guests, and most importantly someplace that won’t violate any noise restrictions after dark. Fortunately, this is not our event planner’s first rodeo or outdoor movie and they have an array of fabulous outdoor movie venues for just about anywhere in San Francisco to meet your crowd’s needs.


The Timeless Appeal of the Theatre

The American fascination with film and theater seems to live on in so many ways. There is a timeless appeal to getting lost in a film and escaping into a world so different from one’s own. The magic of the cinema is constantly being reinvented whether it be through the way its shown in by drive through movie, or in 3D, to the special effects and CGI, there are constantly new appeals to film that keep crowds coming back for more. No matter what changes one aspect of the movies transcends time and trends, and that is the way a well told story can bring together any crowd and create unique memories even off the silver screen.
