Some large and established outdoor cinemas are the Outdoor Cinema Food Fest (California), Oshkosh’s Fly-In theater or Screen on the Green (Atlanta). Many prestigious film festivals opt for outdoor movies to their regular screenings. And speaking of popularity, some of the most important outdoor movie events were hosted on St. Mark’s Square at Venice Film Festival in 2004 (the world premiere of Shark Tale) and at Dubai International Film Festival in 2011. A one of a kind outdoor cinema is the Drive-in theater. Outdoor movies are usually projected on an inflatable screen made from PVC coated fabric layers joined by high frequency welding or mechanical sewing. The frame is inflated with a high pressure blower. The blower typically continues to operate, ensuring that the screen remains fully inflated. With that said, we offer you a list of outdoor inflatable movie screens.
