YMCA's, communities and Home Owner's Associations, community pools, water parks, and even backyards are some of the many places where poolside outdoor movie events are hosted. Dive-in movies are typically summer events, but places like aquatics centers with indoor pools can host them all year round.

A poolside movie event is set up much like a traditional outdoor movie event. A large, inflatable movie screen, a powerful sound system, and a projector are used to turn an outdoor venue into a cinema. The only difference with a poolside event is the movie screen is set up near the pool, and rather than sitting on chairs or blankets, movie goers enjoy the experience from tubes, rafts, pool noodles, or poolside lounge chairs.

Like any movie event, the movie choice for a poolside outdoor movie is important. Be sure to choose a movie based on the intended audience. A water themed movie could be an excellent choice for your dive-in movie experience. Movies like Jaws or Pirates of the Caribbean are good selections for an older crowd. For a family friendly event, try Finding Nemo, Flushed Away or Shark Tale.

In addition to a themed movie, serving themed movie snacks is another great way to make the most of the poolside setting. Goldfish, blue Jell-O jigglers cut into fish or shark shapes, or even sandwiches cut into ocean animal shapes make fun, simple refreshments for the whole family. Serve popsicles or frozen drinks to keep everyone cool. You could even rent a Slushy machine to make special summer treats.

Set the scene by decorating for the event. Choose Tiki torches or citronella candles for pretty lighting and to help keep bugs away. Also consider decorating with blue balloons or ocean themed banners or garlands. Spruce up the refreshment table with a brightly colored table cloth, candles or special center pieces.

A splash-in movie makes a great addition to almost any summer get together, whether you are trying to plan an event for your community to get neighbors together, or you are a homeowner trying to plan a get together to remember at your home. You can also add a poolside movie to another special event. End an afternoon birthday party or family reunion with a splash-in movie after dark, or host an end of the school year dive-in movie event.

Summer is all about having fun with family and friends and finding new and exciting ways to stay cool. A pool side outdoor movie event is fun for the whole family. Adults can relax on lounge chairs, and children can enjoy themselves in the pool, floating on inner tubes or noodles.
