Planning an event can be daunting but it doesn't have to be. Backyard Cinemas transforms any size event space into an incredible on-site movie theater experience. Just pick a movie, and they do the rest!
Their full-service packages are perfect for birthday parties, company events, weddings, and more. Events include their custom size movie screen (10-30ft!) and their famous concession stand with fresh popcorn, theater box candy, and much more!

Backyard Cinema Movie Night Events
Planning a private event for 12-500 guests? Movie nights include three Backyard Cinemas team members on-site to set up, break down and serve refreshments during the show. A lead MC will review all rules, keep the event on schedule and have some fun with the audience before the show begins. The concession stand stays open all evening. Yes, you can always have seconds of popcorn!

Premium dessert options include Glaze Donuts, Philly Pretzel Factory, and Anthony's Cheesecake. They're also partners with several premium food trucks in the tri-state area. Backyard Cinemas partners with Popcorn for the People, an equal opportunity employer working with autistic adults to deliver delicious hand-bagged gourmet popcorn! Choose up to 5 flavors... we recommend French Toast!

New for 2023! Backyard Arcade

A complete indoor video game party experience on a huge 10 ft screen! Epic Super Smash Bros tournaments, Mario Kart racing, and Mario Party games let 8-16 people play simultaneously; no more waiting for the controller!  Did we mention this is the BIGGEST screen your kids have ever played video games on? (FYI -- A 9 ft ceiling is required for indoor events).
Arcade is available with a movie night combo or as an individual package.

Choose a system, choose the games, choose the screen size, and you're nearly set. They bring the entire party to you, complete with a huge 10-30ft screen and incredible cinema-quality speakers.
