For Your Viewing Pleasure

Looking to plan the perfect movie event for your community, school, business, or private venue? View the most common questions our customers ask throughout the process:

How much work is involved in planning an outdoor movie event?

Most of your work is planning and promoting the event. Twilight Zone takes care of almost everything on the event day. You are free to relax and enjoy the movie with the audience.

How big is the screen?

We offer four different screen sizes depending on your needs and venue. The sizes range from 16 feet wide to 40 feet wide. For more details, visit our packages page.

What movies can I show?

Great question! Please see our movie licensing page for more information.

What equipment is included?
What type of venues do you work with?

We can set up a screen almost anywhere. Our equipment is portable, versatile, and most important, durable. We can set up at beaches, parking lots, even on lake barges. The most common venues are parks, large parking lots, football fields, and golf courses.

How much power do we need?

We supply power for events in remote locations. We use standard outlets if they’re available. Two dedicated 20-amp circuits may be necessary to power an outdoor movie event without using our generator.

What time can the movies begin?

We usually start at sundown for outdoor venues. Don’t worry though, our technicians will arrive early enough to set up. We’ll even play music for your guests while they arrive and settle in.

Do the inflatable screens kill the grass?

No. The screens will not ruin or kill the grass. They’re designed to equally distribute the weight over their large surface areas. Plus, the movie screens are only in contact with the grass for a maximum of six hours.

Do we have to sign a contract?

Yes, we do require that a contract is signed by all parties. This is to ensure everyone is protected and has a clear understanding of the expectations. Our contracts are customized to meet the unique needs of our clients.

Does Twilight Zone have insurance?

We carry a policy of insurance not less than one million dollars. This policy covers the operation of our equipment, our independent contractors plus general and product liability for the period of the event.

Your organization can request to be added as additional insured on our policy for a specific event date and location. Please give us 30 days notice if you wish to be listed on a Certificate of Insurance.

What are my anchoring options?

We have a few options to choose from. We can drive anchor spikes into the ground, tie to trucks, or tie to permanent installments.
