Hang up the screen
In order to see the movie well from your car, you need to either buy a projector screen or utilize a spare white tarp or sheet as a makeshift screen. Hang up your screen by securing it against your garage door or tying it to a couple of trees with some rope. If possible, choose a place for the screen that’s slightly uphill since that will make it easier for everyone to view the movie.
Pick a spot for the projector
After purchasing a projector or getting one out of storage, check that you have a long enough extension cord to connect to a power source and that the projector in a good location prior to playing the movie. Move the projector around while a family member provides feedback, making sure that the device won’t obstruct anyone’s view.
Position the speakers
To ensure that everyone can hear the movie from their cars, set up some speakers, using either Bluetooth or an AUX cord to connect them to your laptop. If you don’t have any speakers, another option is to have each car play the movie on their own laptops, using a video synchronizing tool, like Teleparty, so that there are no issues with the movie’s volume.
