Outdoor movies are the neighborhood rage
I see a lot of groups organizing "screen on the green" type events at the neighborhood scale, when it was not too long ago that such events were limited to major parks.
It turns out that inflatable screens are easily rented, making projection a relatively simple process compared to 10 years ago, when you needed sophisticated projection systems and the only screens available were hard, fixed, big objects difficult to transport.
It was at Fort Slocum, an NPS installation in our neighborhood that mostly goes unused, except for some dog walkers, and occasional users of the picnic shelter.
The Park People park friends support organization in Toronto has produced a guide to organizing such events.
