Open Air Cinema Launches Backyard Home Theater

Comes with 12-foot inflatable screen, digital projector, DVD player and more.

A drive-in movie is a thing of the past. Nobody goes to the drive-in, right?

But how about a float-in movie? (Lame, I know.)

Open Air Cinema's CineBox Home Outdoor Theater System allows moviegoers to enjoy flicks from their pool (if they have one) or under the stars from the backyard.

It comes with a 10-foot (patent-pending) or 12-foot inflatable movie screen. The system also features a digital projector, DVD player, sound mixer and LED light.

"People are staying home and looking for ways to make their family and neighborhood activities more fun -- and what better way to do it than an outdoor movie night?" says Open Air Cinema CEO Stuart Farmer.

"We rip the roof off the home theater and take it outside. Our system is easier to set up than a pup tent and when deflated, the 123-inch movie screen weighs about eight pounds and fits inside a duffle bag, which you can take anywhere."

Setup doesn't seem too difficult, either. It comes with a pump, which the company calls "near-silent," that inflates the screen in 30 seconds.

The CineBox Home Theater System is available now on and soon through retailers nationwide.

Screen pricing starts at $399 for the 10-foot screen. Options include purchasing the screen only, the screen and projector, screen and audio or the complete package, which starts at $1,499.
