Family Fun with a 3M Mobile Projector {And a $150 Target GiftCard Giveaway!!!}


One of the coolest things about blogging is getting the opportunity to try new products. Last week I got a 3M™ Projector in the mail to try out, and my husband has officially dubbed it “the coolest thing you’ve ever gotten through blogging!”

Every Friday is Family Night, and this 3M™ Mobile Projector is going to be a regular part of our Friday nights from now on. This past Friday, I was at my sister’s house working on her laundry room re-do. While I was working I hooked up the 3M Projector to my iPhone and put it on the dresser in the guest room. The 3M Projector can be plugged into an outlet for power but it also holds up to a two-hour charge.

Adam and Eli watched a superhero cartoon on Netflix! My brother-in-law, Wayne, who is a super “techy” guy absolutely LOVED this projector!

I also took some pictures of the 3M Projector in my kitchen one night.

3m 010

I told Luke to stand in front of the movie so you could tell how big it projected the movie on the wall.

3m 004

I looked up “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” on YouTube for this picture. (Doesn’t that kid look like he is pointing his finger at Luke?)

3m 008

What I love about this projector is that you can take it outside and use it while camping or hosting an outdoor movie night with friends.

Luke and I went outside and projected the movie on our shed.

3m 026

It was actually darker outside than it looks in this picture. I was trying to shoot in “manual” mode to let in more light, and it caused everything to be blurry. But the movie wasn’t. It looked awesome! The boys cannot wait to have friends over to watch a movie outside.

3m 034

For fun, Luke projected to movie on the back of our car. How cool is that?!

3m 036

The 3M Projector works with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. You can watch YouTube videos, slideshow photos, TV or movies via iTunes.

With an additional cable, you can even use the 3M Projector with your PC.

This product is sold at Target, and there is an iTunes $25 Gift Card limited time promotion (included with the projector in specially marked packs). You can find out more by clicking here.

  1. Our favorite night for family night is Saturday.
    We like to sit around, pop popcorn & watch movies on Netflix!!

  2. How’s the sound? It looks like such a cool idea! My kids are grown so family movie night is generally just my husband and I. OUr favorite way to watch a movie is to curl up in bed with the pups.

  3. If both my boys sit for an entire movie it is a miracle. But this would be great, we could set it up outside and let them run and watch at the same time!

  4. Our little ones are so young still, we’ve yet to have a family movie night! After I win this though, Elmo may just have to be the new Family Movie Night. :)

  5. As our nest is now empty, we usually invite some friends or neighbors over for “family night” movies. We hope to take our movies outside this summer – think it would be lots of fun!

  6. We haven’t had enough of these lately (baseball and softball season!), but when we do, we like to sprawl all over the family room and eat popcorn while watching a movie.

  7. We love having a tv dvr Friday night…order a pizza make snacks ..and settle in to the Sectional…we even put a note, on the front door to not disturb :)

  8. Our baby is too small to participate in family movie night, but the hubby and I have our “date night” every Friday and usually watch a movie. As the baby grows, our plan is to do Friday night homemade pizza and movie night!

  9. Movie night is awesome when it is snowy outside everyone has popcorn and stays inside. In the summer movies are often enjoyed when we are camping.

  10. It’s rather challenging to have a family movie night this days. There are not many movies out there that will suit both a 17 year old boy and 5 year old girl. But when we do, it’s all about big bowls of popcorn, pizza bites, and snack foods. We’ve even been known to do a movie with Sarah ad then one with boys after she goes to bed.

  11. Our family movie nights are with Redbox flix in our movie room. We make popcorn and cuddle up under blankets!

  12. Who knew there were still any kind of projectors? I am so surprised at this. Our family are adults, so now our movie nights are days with our 4 year old granddaughter. hehehe

  13. We haven’t done it before, but I love the idea of an outdoor theater! No movie night is complete without popcorn!

  14. We love family move night! They usually are on Friday evenings in our home. We make our own pizzas, have a ice cream bar and of course POPCORN! In the summer we love to go to the Drive Inn! We pack up our chairs and sit in the back of my husbands truck and snacks! We get there early enough to throw a frisbie or football around. Love movie nights!

  15. We do family night every saturday night with movie, popcorn and candy. It’s our favorite night of the week!

  16. We do our family movie nights on fridays. Throughout the week the kids earn “money” for good behavior and can shop the “concession stand” (which is usually over the top). Each child has their own tray and we spread out blankets on the floor with all our goodies and share an evening together!

  17. Pizza, a movie and cuddlin on the couch :-) can’t wait till my husband gets home from dePloyment so he can join me and lil man :-)

  18. That projector looks so cool! We like to do a family movie night by watching something on netflix and my husband makes really good popcorn! We sometimes get sleeping bags out to put on futon mattresses to act like we’re camping while watching a movie. It’s so cozy, I sometimes have trouble staying awake!

  19. We love outdoor movie night at our local park, and we would love to do it in our own yard with all of the neighborhood kids. We could make outdoor movie night a tradition in our neighborhood!

  20. My favorite family movie night thing. ME!!!!! Just me, my popcorn and my ice cold ice tea with no interruptions . :)

  21. Our family movie night is grabbing a bunch of DVD’s we already seen a hundred times, popping some popcorn, grabbing beverage of choice, each grabbing his own blanket, finding a spot in the living room and each settling down with a bowl of popcorn to have a wonderful night of laughs.

  22. What a great idea for movie night with the grandkids! Or floating in the pool at night with a movie outside! So cool!

  23. We have movie night with Redbox in our den… would love to be able to be outside under the stars with it projected on our garage… great idea!!

  24. We curl up with blankets and big bowls of popcorn! Food is not allowed in living room except for Movie night, so it is special!

  25. We like to pull out sleeping bags and cots and have a mini campout in the basement! We’ve been wanting to try this same idea with an outdoor movie!

  26. I love the idea of starting a family movie night! My kids are still young, but think they are getting close to the age of thinking this would be really neat!!

  27. Friday nights are our movie nights – curled up on our big sectional with popcorn and a bottle of wine for my husband and I!

  28. We are lucky to share movie night with our Grandchildren. Friday night is pizza and a movie. The kids grab a spot on the floor with blankets and us adults get the couches. Popcorn and soda and we are ready to go…

  29. Friday nights are always pizza night (& movies sometimes). It’s tough with 4 teens & work & sports schedules, but always fun when we can all hang out together. A little family “iron chef” dessert of smoothie throw down always makes it even more interesting. We borrowed a projector once for our sons birthday – 4 kids at a time racing on wii Mario Kart – great fun!!

  30. Our fav family movie night is a pizza dinner in front of the TV. We even break out the TV tray tables. It has a 70s sort of vibe. :) The kids think it’s such a treat to eat and watch a movie at the same time. I love the idea of a neighborhood, ‘walk-in’ theater in the back yard though.

  31. We don’t have movie night very often, but when we do, we usually have dinner in front of the tube while watching our movie. Of course, this means pausing the movie several times as everyone has to leave the room at different times because they forgot something in the kitchen. Maybe not the best way to do it, but it seems to work for us.

  32. I love electronic gadgets….and this looks like an absolutely great one! Would love to entertain the littlest grands and great grands with this!

  33. This is PERFECT for our family! We have been wanting a portable projecotor for a couple years, but haven’t found one that was “just right”…. THIS ONE IS! Yay for 3M.

  34. My son and I were just talking about getting a projector for when we finish out den downstairs (in progress!) Would love this!

  35. Movie night is not complete without popcorn. Watch any movie that is dvr’d or on dvd. This would be cool to do movies outdoors this summer.

  36. The Only requirement for family movie night is POPcoRN!!! :) other snacks and of course a warm blanket for cuddles are extra special too!

  37. We love family movie nights! We usually all snuggle on the couch and eat popcorn – the kids love theirs with jelly beans mixed in :)

  38. Our favorite way to watch movies is to go up to the mountains and watch them! This would totally make that easier to do! This product looks so awesome!!

  39. Watching a family movie, eating more popcorn than I care to admit and snuggling with my hubby and 2 sons! An outdoor theater would be such great fun!

  40. I love it. That would make summer nights so awesome. Movies on the side of the garage will we sit on the porch swing.

  41. WE love to watch movies outside in the summer at our city park. This would be so wonderful to have the kids in the back yard anytime they wanted.

  42. Movie night is my boyfriend and i watching netflix and popcorn!…kids are grown so they usually don’t join us. Maybe with the projector we might get them to stay around….

  43. This is new to me, but I love Apple products and can’t imagine it wouldn’t be fantastic! I would love to sit on my patio and watch movies with my bowl of popcorn close at hand.

  44. Looks so fun! Our movie night includes curling up with blankets and a BIG bowl of popcorn. I would love to try the outdoor version- looks like a blast!

  45. I love when our family gets a chance to watch a movie together but the difficult part is finding a movie we all agree on!! (and what my college age kids haven’t already seen!!)

  46. What a great give away1 Would love to win this – I have a canvas “screen” just waiting for a projector. Thanks so much!

  47. We like to visit our local movie theater to do our part in helping our local economy. But we also love curling up in our favorite chairs at home with lots of popcorn!

  48. When our kids were young we would all climb in our bed, with big bowls of popcorn and enjoy a good movie. Now that they’re grown and living on their own they still come home, we have lots of popcorn but we sit in the family room and not as often.

  49. Our favorite way to do family movie night is to get a free movie at the library! This is such a cool giveaway – thank you!

  50. We keep it simple (yet always fun) for movie night with MY four :) boys. Popped popcorn, fleece blankets and all snuggled up together. This would be such a fun thing to have!

  51. We love family movie night! Usually on Friday nights for us. Netflix has been great, we can all find a movie we agree on! Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer has been on constant rotation for the last 2 weeks around here :) How awesome to have a projector and take the movies outside for a backyard campout!!

  52. My favorite way to watch a family movie is in our family room in our pj’s! This looks like something my husband would LOVE!

  53. This is the coolest thing! My son is just two so he doesn’t sit still for long unless he is sick but we love cuddling on the couch for short films. This would be so fun to have on trips and to make fun memories!

  54. Love family movie nights! This would be so fun to use in the basement- have all he kiddos come down with blankies and sleeping bags!!

  55. Tracy..

    relaxing in our recliners!!

  56. I like your blog and would love to have an outdoor movie night with family and friends using the 3m projector!

  57. I love family nights! We play card games and make a pallet to watch a movie together. This projector is so cool!

  58. Teenagers! Need I say more? Ok teenage boys. Our family movie nights sometimes have to incorporate more than just our family. In order to have the kids at home, since they are teenagers, we will invite their friends to join in. This way we get to spend time with our kids at home. And I know our house would be a hit if we had this product!

  59. We love to have family fun night! It’s usually a movie and pizza from our favorite pizza place! We have the perfect spot for a projector! :)

  60. We haven’t owned a TV in 10 years. We don’t go to movies. But I do allow my kids to watch them on the computer sometimes and on long trips. We are going to the Grand Canyon this weekend and this would be so awesome! It would come in handy for Children’s Church too!

  61. Family Movie Night is such a treat – it is that one precious time where we can all be together having some quiet family time!! Unfortunately there is so much hustle in our world these days that it is so nice to have this time together. An additional treat is pizza, ice cream, popcorn or some yummy snack!!

  62. Our favorite family past time in the summer is campfires. We usually end up making supper over the campfire and of course smore’s for dessert.

  63. Our family loves movie night! We try to pick a movie we all want to watch, and either rent it at the store or Uverse. There is always popcorn involved a a special drink, like izzies or root beer. At the new house we are moving to, there is a red barn in the back with cleared land beside it. I am already planning on hanging the backside of a billboard canvas on that barn, and watching movies out there with the youth group from our church, and whoever else. Would love to have the 3m projector for that very reason!

  64. We like to sit in our family room but this projector would make it fun to watch a movie outside. We even have a great spot…

  65. That is awesome!!!! What a fun way to watch a movie…outside on a nice summer evening. Love it!!!

  66. Movie night is harder these days with a 16 and 12 year old, but this would be awesome for summer night movies around the pool! Very cool!

  67. We all snuggle on the couch and watch something we can all (for the most part!!) agree on!

  68. What an awesome new toy! I would love love love this!
    Our favorite way to do movie night is to pull the mattress off our bed and drag it out to the living room floor. It’s feels a little like we are camping out in the living room and we can snuggle on the comfortable mattress and watch a movie!

  69. we like to do movie night with air popped popcorn
    ! it would be so fun to watch a movie outside! thanks

  70. What a great tool…we don’t really do movie nights anymore our kids ages are too far apart and the oldest lives on his own but we do family dinner night. We sit around and talk about whats going on in our lives.

  71. I love to get the grandkids snuggled on either side of me in my bed with a big tub of popcorn! They love my bed – they say it’s cozy. I just have to sweep out the crumbs later!

  72. I already own a projector so we do the projector in the garage for our big family and for our small family, we do redbox and taco soup night.

  73. My Husband and I have an empty nest so movie night for us is usually the two of us cuddled up on our bed together with three furry friends (our cats) surrounding us :)

  75. Weekends are usually when we have movie night for us…but with summer in the distance it is any time!

  93. We have been doing family movie nights for about 20 years and our kids still want them when they are home. We call them the Atkins Film Festival. We get everyone’s favorite snacks, PIck up two or three movies (everyone gets their say…so maybe an action, a drama and a chick is always an unusual mix.) We hunker down in the family and watch away.

  94. I work at a ranch for foster children and we do family movie night with all the houses go over to one of the houses. They have a big screen that they drag outside, and we all bring blankets and chairs over to watch the movie under the stars! This projector is amazing! It would certainly be a lot lighter than the TV!

  102. Oh this looks to be awesome! I love family movie night….. I get a family movie that everyone will enjoy and hopefully be inspired by. I usually get a few eye rolls from the 14 and 17 year old, but that makes it all the better.

Best part is, you get 2 movies for one price!

  124. We like to turn all the lights out, pop popcorn, snuggle in our quilts and watch movies in the living room together

  125. I love having movie night with my hubby after we tuck in our 4 year old. How fun would this be in the backyard?

  131. We LOVE movies. We take turns picking a movie. Even our 2yr gets excited about movie night. The kids get out their blankets, pillows, even sometimes we get out the air mattress. We have family movie night every Friday. We are a HUGE movie family. That projector would be so awesome to have.

  132. That is so cool! We have a larger size projector that we use in our garage for Friday night movie night, but it would be neat to have the smaller, more portable one to take along or use outside. You would also use it to project images on a wall for decorating projects! I’m sure the uses are endless!
    Hope you’re having a wonderful start to summer! :)

  133. Our family movie night includes me and my husband and our youngest daughter. We curl up on the couches with our blankets and of course some popcorn! We have a lot if pool parties during the summer and this would be great to use outside for the kids to watch!

  134. My family spends the summer camping with my parents, my brother & sister’s families. This would be perfect for those nights by the camp fire roasting marshmallows with the 7 grandchildren! This is the greatest invention since the iphone (or anything else in the i family).

  135. Homemade pizza and a video is one of our favorite ways to spend a Friday night with our nine-year-old twin boys. Sometimes we watch old Leave it to Beaver reruns, a family flick or our favorite Christian comedian, Tim Hawkins, who is both clean and hilarious. When we don’t feel like a video, we break out the games – Uno is my favorite!

  136. My kids are 13, 12 and 10 and ever since watching a movie outside at our friend’s lakehouse last summer they have absolutely begged me for a projector so we can do it at home! There’s nothing better than watching a movie together under the stars with your family!

  141. We love movie night when we can get all 5 kids to hang out with us (4 teenagers!) but we have popcorn, candy and homemade treats.

  144. Our favorite family nights involve playing one of our boardgames then popping popcorn and snuggling on the couch for a movie. Thanks!

  145. We usually just pile on the couch together, but this would be awesome. I could just see all the neighborhood kids flocking to our backyard for a movie. We would definitely be the coolest family on the block. =)

  150. We love to wear comfy pajamas and curl up on the couch with a big bowl of stove cooked popcorn and watch a family fave like Back to the Future!

  151. Movie night is one of our favorites. Usually on a Friday night we make our favorite dessert, order pizza, throw on the pj’s, pile up on the sectional and order our favorite pick for the night. Lights out and we’re ready to roll! Sounds good for this Friday after a little man’s week with a broken finger and a round of strep throat.

  152. we usually order pizza delivery and Eskimo Pie and rent a dvd. half the time it seems to involve vampires movies.

  153. They are actually amazing! I have friends who have one and they LOVE it for outdoor movie night! Our current favorite way to watch movies is all snuggled up in bed with everyone in a pile (including the dogs.!) with a big selection of healthy snacks and water! Of course if we win… we will definitely move to outside movie night when the weather permits!

  154. Family movie night means mattresses on the floor, popcorn and comfy jammies for the whole gang!

  155. We usually wait until our granddaughter comes over and then pick our favorite spots on the sofa and load up on popcorn with M&Ms in it!

  156. This is the coolest thing ever!!!! I would love to win it! Love the idea of family movie night outside projected on the wall!!! Love, love love! Thanks Tracy for bringing these cool things to us! Blessings, Sarah =)

  157. This is so cool. My kids are grow. With kids of their own . We still have movie night one Sat a month. The family that hosts picks a kids movie and an adult movie. It’s totally fun and everyone has a great time….

  158. Our very favorite thing to do for family movie night is to start with homemade pizza, and hunt down a netflix instant stream… happiness. :)

  159. This would be so great to have so we could turn regular old movie nights into outdoor movie nights! I know our neighbors would have a blast coming over with their kiddos to watch movies with my family! This would be a great way to get the neighbors together , have a cookout then a movie under the stars, I can see it already!

  160. Our movie night is on Friday after dinner. The kids pick the movie, get a little treat and we cuddle on the couch–so much fun!

  161. My daughter and I love to watch movies snuggled up on the couch with. M&M’s and a BIG bowl of buttery popcorn!

  162. My favorite movie nites don’t happen all the time,. It is when I get to visit my granddaughter and we snuggle on the couch with popcorn and get to watch a movie we love.

  163. this would be awesome for camping! our 5 year old daughter is just getting into the disney movies so an evening under the stars with a disney film would be perfect =)

  164. I love this thing!! We watch movies out in our backyard with a big clunky project, speakers, and a computer! This would be so much easier.

  165. Our kids are only 3… but they love to climb into our bed and watch a special “bideo” as they call it. to be able to snuggle and just be together as a family is such a blessing

  166. We love family movie night! It is such an economical way to be together and have fun. On special occasions, like holiday times, we’ll go to see one together at the theater; but mostly it’s at home with snacks and lots of sofa snuggling. : )

  167. Our movie nights are always on Friday. We vote for a movie to see, and then after all the hustle and bustle of the week is over, get cozy on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and some freshly baked cookies for a relaxed night in!

  168. How fun is that!? Our family night is every night! We all love curling up before bedtime on the couch and watching a movie or reading books:)

  169. Movie night occurs at least once a week at my house, but I have been dying to host a ‘drive-in’ movie night in our backyard. There is only one problem…we have no way to project the movie. Kind of a key component! this would be perfect and the size would make it so easy to store when the night is over. I need this 3M projector! :)

  170. My daughter is just now old enough to sit through a movie, so my husband and I are getting to re-experience movies we loved, both Disney & Pixar! We love to watch movies on Saturday mornings before Daddy has to go to work and the day of activies get started. It’s a nice way for us to bond at the beginning of a day rather than the end!

  171. Since it’s still mostly just my husband and me (we usually watch a movie after our two-year-old has gone to bed), it’s pretty low key…just a movie. I should jazz it up a little!

  172. Our family TV night is watching American Idol. My 3 yr old loves the show as much as I do! :)


  173. We have two kids who are running this way and that with all their sports and activities, so we try to have at least one night of family time a week. Usually we either grill out or order a pizza then do a movie at home. This might actually be the perfect thing for the outdoor cul-de-sac movie nights we’ve been thinking about for the summer. Thanks for the review :)

  174. We could so use this for ministry. When we moved across the country to pastor a struggling little church, we were unable to bring a decent size tv for movie nights in our home. We have perfect walls for this, one inside, one outside. It would be such a great ministry tool!

  175. We typically will do movie night on Sundays after an early dinner. We make popcorn and watch a movie we’ve rented from Redbox.

  176. My husband and I have never been involved in watching movies because we could never really afford a TV or computer… When we want to watch a show it is usually done on my tiny iPhone screen. It would be so lovely to watch a movie on a large screen for a change. =] God bless

  177. This 3M projector is totally cool…I would love to have one so I can bring the movie night outdoor, especially in the summer. I love family movie night. My son and daughter takes turn picking a movie to watch (limited to 1 per night though). I’m always the one who prepare the snacks and drinks for our fun night cuddling on the couch.

  178. Our favorite way to do movie night is to plop on the couch after we’ve grabbed a bowl of popcorn!! Thanks for a chance to win and have a great day!

  179. I must be living in the dark ages, I have never seen these! Now I want one!!!!! We love movies and watching them as a family with a big bowl of popcorn is all it takes to make our family smile.

  180. fridays are movie nights around here, pizza, dessert and popcorn with a movie. Have kept this tradition up since my daughter was born 12 yrs ago, now it includes three more siblings and many time friends, but it is always fun!!

  181. Family Movie Night is when we have our two oldest grandchildren, David(6) and Annie(4) over to spend the night. Movie, popcorn, candy, all curled up together with a fun movie. How fun would it be to take it outside with the 3M movie projector! :)

  182. what an awesome product! Our family movie nights are pretty traditional – homemade popcorn and blankets in the living room!

  183. We do movie night on Fridays. It’s usually just a DVD in the basement, maybe with some popcorn. But “have an outdoor movie night” is on my summer bucket list! I’ve been looking for a projector, but they’ll all so expensive. I might be able to swing this one if I win the Target card, though!

  184. LOVE this! We usually do movie night once a month, this would make it so much more exciting to watch a movie-would love to watch one in the back yard!

  185. we love to get together with all of our neighbors in the summer and hang out on friday nights. The kids play and the adults catch up and sip beverages. We love to do a kids mobie and then another movie after all he kids head inside. 80’s classics are very popular.

  186. Love this product…My cousin and I make graduation videos for each child who graduates from high school. With this we will be able to be pool side while showing rather than crammed in one room around the tv.

  187. Family movie night is done right around here surrounded by pillows and with lots of popcorn. I love the idea of being able to use the projector to watch a movie outside or take it camping. Perfect!

  188. I love doing Family Night with all 4 of us eating popcorn we made, and then putting in a classic that we all enjoy like “True Grit.” Inevitably, 2 of the 4 will fall asleep there, but it’s fun while we’re all awake!

  189. We have family movie night almost every weekend. With 4 kids it’s so much cheaper to stay home to watch movies than to buy movie tickets (and all the expensive popcorn and treats at the theater!) We have a lot more fun at home too. With a projector we could watch outside and invite friends to watch with us!

  190. We typically do movie night on Saturday since we subscribe to Netflix. We curl up on the couch with a giant bowl of buttery popcorn, sometimes with M&M’s thrown in.

  191. Our favorite way to spend family movie night is outside on the patio with the movie projected on our garage wall…this would make it soooo much easier!!

  192. for family movie night we also camp out in the living room on the floor on a blanket. We get pillows and vote on a movie. We watch it til the end. THe 1st person to fall asleep misses out on Ice cream.

  193. I love to stop sporadically at a redbox and pick up a movie and cuddle on the couch. Live the idea of taking it outside along with sleeping bags with the nieces and nephews!

  194. we’ve projected movies on the back of our house for neighborhood movie nights – everyone brings something to eat and share.

  195. Our favorite way to do movie night is in the living room with blankets and pillows because someone is bound to fall asleep (usually me), so we want to be cozy. And Kettlecorn is a must!

  196. We like to pile onto the couch under a giant duvet to watch our movies. In the summer, we walk up to town to huddle on a blanket to watch movies on the university lawn.

  197. Great for those family fun nights,and for camping in the backyard. We love popping popcorn and spending time at home…which does happen all the time with swim meets!

  198. Our favorite way to do family movie night is to order pizza and pop popcorn! We also bring out the sleeping bags for extra comfort :)

  199. Homemade pizza and desserts, a great family friendly movie to enjoy together with kids- my favorite way.

  200. We just had a movie night last night! Curling up on the couch with a nice glass of wine and my hubs!

  201. One of our fave family fun times is Movie Night! After picking a movie, we snuggle up on the couch with yummy homemade popcorn and lemonade and watch it stream through our Wii via Netflix. Having the ability to watch those movies anywhere (esp. outside on beautiful nights) is just an awesome idea. Isn’t technology amazing?!? Thanks for a great giveaway.

  202. We have Family Movie Night each Friday and usually make homemade pizza. Sometimes, we’ll tie in the food with our movie and decorate, too.

  203. Our family movie night is too rare an occurrence, but I really enjoy curling up with my husband after our daughter is in bed. DD is just now at an age that we want to start family movie night with her!

  204. I would love to start a tradition of scheduled family movie nights. Most of our movie nights are just spur of the moment, pick up a Redbox kind of thing.


  206. In the wintertime, we love to pop in a movie, get a roarin’ fire going in the fireplace and snuggle in! I prefer the comfort of my own bed, but it’s hard to squeeze so many people around our laptop! ;)

  207. I can share with all the neighborhood kids on Friday or Saturday we can have so much fun! with it being hard times right now they can have a little fun xxxxxxx

  208. We do movie night ALOT…my husband is very ANTI chick flick so every other week when he’s on midnights my teenage daughter and I do Movie Night..The Chick Flick Edition..:>..I have 3 movie channels on Demand so we always have somthing new to see, we do popcorn with some pickled jalepeno toppers, we also do a non spicy version for my 2 and 4 yr old who hang out to. We do Chex Mix mixed with nuts and M&M’s…since it’s warm out we’re doing some pre movie activities like SMORES, we stack ’em up on a tray and just have a really relaxing time…this week…The LAST Harry Potter!! So Cho dipped Pretzel Sticks (Wands) for SURE!!!

  209. We pull out our queen size mattress into the living room and all the pillows in the house…the kids think it’s the coolest thing ever, even though it usually devolves into jumping!

  210. My favorite way to do family movie night is to make some homemade popcorn with variety flavors such as caramel, white cheddar and classic butter and watch movies on Netflix.


  211. Wow! I agree with your husband, that IS cool! I’m sure the possibilities are endless!
    I’d have to say that our favorite way to do family movie night is… well… okay, we’re kinda boring. We just rent a movie and watch it. But MY favorite part is that I usually end up with one kid under each arm and it’s GREAT cuddle time :)

  212. We watch on our hdtv with xbox, and snack on icecream and popcorn. Thanks for the review and giveaway, the projector quality looks great.

  216. Wow, I love this gizmo! We make everyone leave their electronic devices upstairs when we have our family movie nights in the basement.

  217. We do friday night pizza, game, and/or movie night each week. We start with a picnic of pizza and then put our pjs on to watch a movie or play games. I would love to do an outside movie, but the traffic by our house is too loud.

  218. Our favorite movie night tradition is to bring out the sleeping bags so that if you fall asleep then you can just stay in the living room.

  220. Family movie night we make a pizza or something else simple and watch 2 movies in a row (we have dessert during the 2nd one!)

  221. We have a 2 year old, so not many family movie nights lately. When our little one gets older, I can’t wait to show movies outside on the side of the garage. Totally reminds me of the Drive-Ins of my childhood :)

  223. We love to have family movie night in our basement. We watch a movie together on the big screen and pop popcorn.


  224. I am looking for a portable projector with the ability to display split screen from two different inputs. I currently have a casio xja246 that

    can do this through the wireless display capability, but I need to be connected to the internet through wifi while using the projector, so

    wireless connection isn’t an option.

  225. I was thinking of doing an outdoor movie night birthday party for my 3 year old twin boys and I came across your blog!!

    Thank you for posting your experience with this fun, new gadget!!!!

  226. We enjoy popcorn, a movie that is family friendly and we all pile up on the couch to watch together.

  227. Choosing a movie everyone loves and turning the lights off and snuggling on the sofa under a big fluffy blanket!. I also like to make my movie snack mix (popcorn & M&M’s mixed together) Thanks so much!

  228. Our favorite way to do movie night is to rent a movie from the red box and cuddle up on the couch together to watch it.

  229. Wow. That looks like such fun. I just wonder about the sound. We love to do family movie nights by having a treat relating to the theme – like Harry Potter we have a ‘trolley’ show up at the same time as the movie. I’d love to do a faux-drive thru style movie with one of those!

  230. very cool little gadget! we love to do movie nights with all the lights out, snuggled up in blankets on the couches, with a bowl of popcorn topped with m&m’s!

  233. My children are all adults but I have friends who do at least one big outside movie event every summer. He built a huge screen and they have a real projector with movies on reels and they make it a neighborhood event. I think I’d love to take this camping and enjoy a movie just before bedtime. Right now I usually just grab bits and pieces of movies as I’m doing other things.

  234. I love to get those foods that you get at apps at a restaurant (wings, cheese sticks, etc) and eat those while watching a fun family movie.
