Creating the ultimate family movie night in your swim spa is one of the easiest ways to utilize your space this summer. Once you have your swim spa from Wellis New England in place and set up, you only need a few extras to make it an experience that your whole family, neighborhood, or friend group will love.
Step 1: Get the Necessary Equipment
If you want to go all out, go ahead and grab a projector and a proper screen. The initial investment can be totally worth it if you plan to make this a regular event for friends and family.
If this is a one-time event (which we don’t think it will be), you can also get tools to use with your smartphone instead of a more substantial projector. These will allow you to play a movie from your phone and project it to a sheet you can hang up or an actual projector screen.
You won’t need a fancy sound system, as the Wellis® swim spas can be equipped with optional AquaSoul™ Pro Sound. This awesome sound system allows you to connect your phone or other systems via Bluetooth®. Everyone will be able to hear.
Step 2: Set Up the Space
Once you have all of your equipment ready, you can prepare your outdoor space to host whomever you want. Set up the screen and projector at the perfect spots, clean up any extra debris around the spa, and check the chemistry of the water to be sure everything is ready to go.
You may have extra towels available or robes and slippers if it is cooler outside. You can also consider things like outdoor heaters and chairs for people who may not want to be in the swim spa.
Step 3: Gather Refreshments
The final step in hosting the perfect outdoor movie night is to have themed refreshments. You can go all out and hire professionals to come in and set up popcorn machines, soda dispensers, and even lights and balloons.
For a quieter event, make your own popcorn and grab boxed candy from the store. You can make flavored drinks, lemonades, or teas. A quick internet search will provide numerous ideas if you want to be extra on theme.
Step 4: Enjoy Your Swim Spa Movie Night
Once everything is set up, you are ready to enjoy your swim spa movie night. You can repeat this as often as you like.
Make each evening themed according to the movie you will be watching to keep it fresh. Fun themed drinks and caviar for The Great Gatsby or chocolate everything for Willy Wonka. The sky’s the limit, and you can have as much fun as you like.
