Movie Party on the Lawn

We would like to have a night for all the neighborhood kids where we watch DVD movies outside on beach blankets (before it gets cold again). We have a 12 ft wide enclosed trailer that we could project the movie on. Only problem is we don't know how to do this with a DVD player. Does anyone have any ideas or can tell me of any special equipment I could buy for this?

The one thing that comes to mind for me is a projector but they are really expensive. They cost between 800 and 3000 dollars. Here's an example of one of the cheaper ones: ... p;category_id=2999&page=external

A lot of churches and community centers have these and they may be available for loan. Maybe libraries or community centers. Some other community organizations might also have them available to check out. Or you may be able to rent one locally. They are really cool.

you can buy an old 8mm movie projector on ebay for around 20 dollars and a bunch of older cartoons you can purchase for around a dollar I the children would really enjoy the older cartoons. Good Luck

You can rent the projectors that attach to a computer or to a DVD player for not too much money. Call around your local rental places. Businesses rent them for meetings and they are also in demand for special events like reunions, award ceremonies, weddings and funerals.
