The next time you are thinking of doing a movie night, I suggest you skip the local theaters and step into your backyard instead. With just a few supplies and a pretty simple setup you can create an outdoor theater for either an intimate date night or a get together with a couple of friends. Get ready to pop some popcorn, grab a few blankets, and follow these tips to watch your favorite movie right in your own backyard and it doesn’t have to break the bank! The great thing is that you can also save some time and shop online with Walmart Online Grocery Pickup.

DIY Projection Screen for Backyard Theater.
If you can't afford a retractable projector screen? No worries, there are plenty of DIY options such as a plain white wall or crisp, white sheets to act as the display. To make sure that my screen does not blow away I used 3 large safety pins on each side, attached a rope to each pin, then tied the rope to a few tall trees in my backyard to secure the sheet in place. For a more clear and crisp image you can attach a black bed sheet to the back of your white screen. Speakers come in all shapes and sizes and are very affordable. When purchasing a projector, consider contrast ratio - a high ratio will display crisper images and more vibrant colors.

Make a Movie Theater Style Snack box at Home.
Hosting parties at your house doesn't always have to mean pool parties and barbecues. The backyard movie theater is becoming all the rage! I just love the idea of sitting outside on a cool night, with the stars shining above you, hanging with a few of your closest friends sitting on picnic blankets while watching a classic movie on your DIY big screen. No theater is complete without snacks so I like to add a special touch with mini popcorn favor boxes because it's the little details that make it feel pretty legit. Lastly come the drinks, so I am treating my friends to the all-new, flavor-filled lineup from Diet Coke.

Diet Coke Fizzes Up Its Line-Up With 4 New Flavors.
Coca-Cola recently unleashed a new lineup of Diet Coke flavors. The new 12oz sleek Diet Coke cans can be found at your local Walmart plus four new flavors: Feisty Cherry, Zesty Blood Orange, Ginger Lime, and Twisted Mango. Don't worry, Coca-Cola isn't changing the classic Diet Coke recipe. I was so excited by the news that they were hitting the market and I couldn’t wait to find out which flavor would be my favorite. As you all may have noticed that millennials are exploring new adventures with drinks and foods such as exotic fruits so I think it's safe to say these drinks are millennial-friendly. Lets all rejoice as we may have found a new favorite soda to satisfy our caffeine cravings.

Save Time with Walmart Online Grocery Pickup.
Walmart is making online shopping easier than ever with store pickup. As I mentioned earlier I was able to save some time and order the essentials for my DIY backyard movie night online then picked up my items from the closest Walmart Neighborhood Market location. I promise you it's pretty easy and simple for anyone to do. After placing the order online at Walmart.com/grocery, you will choose a time-slot for same day pickup. You will then receive an email when your order is ready. You can let them know you are on the way with a phone call or with their mobile app.  Upon arrival, follow the orange signs to the pickup area, and park in any designated spot and an associate will arrive within a few minutes to load your items directly in your car for free. Being that I ordered 5 boxes of Diet Coke, this service was so convenient for me.

  13. You can watch current movies and you can watch old ones. You can also watch TV shows on your iPad. Just pay for Netflix service and you will get value for money.
