Editor's Note: After a thorough review, we temporarily closed our retail stores across the country. For more information, see the FAQs about the latest REI store closings. Please contact the CDC or your state health agency for advice related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including information about symptoms, testing, and protecting yourself and others from social disengagement. If you are planning a movie night, please follow local shelter-in-place orders.
You don't have to go to the cinemas to enjoy a movie night. Cuddle up at home, either in your garden or in your living room, and let yourself be streamed. With these 10 products you can improve your next viewing experience. The only question is what you will see. Hm.
Rumpl NanoLoft Puffy Blanket
This Rumpl inside-outside throw is durable enough to sit on and warm enough to snuggle under. It's filled with recycled synthetic filling that turns into tiny clusters that mimic it – but you can still throw it in a front-loading washing machine. It is packed in a supplied pack sack for easy storage. $ 149 for 1 person (75 x 52 inches), $ 199 for 2 people (84 x 80 inches)
REI Co-op Kingdom Insulated Air Bed – Queen
Use this mattress to create comfort wherever you place your screen. With an R value of 2.6, the REI Co-op Kingdom should isolate you a little from the ground (and you can use it for future camping trips this summer). And don't worry that you won't miss any of the conversation in your movie because of squeaking. This pad is as quiet as a mouse. Note: It comes with a pump. $ 149
Funny idea: Bring pillows to laze on and let children invite their favorite cuddly toys to the party.
REI Co-op Camp X chair & REI Co-op Camp Chair – children
If you don't want to relax on an air bed, pull up one of these portable chairs from REI Co-op. With cup holders for drinks and bags for snacks and snacks, they make a pretty good impression of theater seats. Both the Camp X Chair and the Camp Camp for children consist of a steel frame and robust poly fabric. $ 39.95 for the Camp X chair, $ 29.95 for the Camp Chair – kids
Kelty Cabana Shelter
Block sunshine (for matinee performances), insects, and wind with this free-standing tent from Kelty. The cabana has three walls with large mesh windows that you can seal for privacy, while the fourth wall peels off for a direct view of your movie. Three poles can be easily installed in the tent body to ensure almost instant set-up. $ 99.95
Entertaining idea: After your film, have this shelter set up comfortably in your living room for a garden night or a similar effect.
REI Co-op Kingdom Low Table
This folding table by REI Co-op is perfect for your laptop or a selection of snacks and drinks and offers the hard surface that you need for a movie night. When set up, the Kingdom Low Table is 15 inches tall, but can be easily stowed away in a slim, 2-foot high package. $ 64.95
Camp Chef Popcorn Popper
A film without popcorn is a tragedy before it starts. Fill this smooth Camp Chef stainless steel popper with grains (not included) and hold it over a campfire, fire pit, or grill to burst your corn. The capacity of 3.5 quart should feed a family of four. $ 29
Funny idea: add a piece of butter and salt for cinema popcorn or refine your snack with grated parmesan or ground spices. Let kids go out with chocolate sauce or rainbow sprinkles.
Zero Target Yeti Lithium 200X Portable Power Plant
Nobody wants to get through most of a movie just to lose the end of an empty battery. If you're not near an electrical outlet, bring this portable Goal Zero power plant with you. Its 187 watt hours are more than enough to juice a laptop (this tank can easily power an electric grill or cooler) and has seven different ports, including air conditioning and a handful of USBs. Charge it via solar, socket or car charger. $ 299.95
Cabiniste down boots (Women & Men's)
Keep your tootsies warm with these insulated booties from Cabiniste. Like sleeping bags for your feet, these down boots are extremely robust thanks to responsible duck down. An outsole made of nylon and polyester provides sufficient protection for easy walking outdoors, and the nylon upper is water-repellent. $ 55
REVEL GEAR Trail Hound 30 foot camping light
With the Trail Hound lights from REVEL GEAR, you can give a sparkle to any fort where you watch movies, inside or outside. Plug the 30 foot string into a USB socket or battery and let the 100 LED lights do their thing (the light output is adjustable and there are six modes, including fire crackle). $ 24.95
YETI Rambler Lowball Vacuum Cup – Limited Edition – 10 fl.oz.
No matter which movie night you choose, the Rambler Lowball from YETI keeps it cold (or hot) until the last sip. The double-walled vacuum insulation means that it does not sweat or leave marks on your side table. It comes with a clear lid so you can easily tell when you need refill. $ 19.98
Funny idea: The wide mouth is perfect for hot drinks. Let children fill the Rambler Lowball with hot cocoa and mallow for a special treat.
