What Time Can the Outdoor Movie Start?

Our projectors are bright enough to start being seen 5-10 minutes before sunset. For the best possible movie experience we suggest starting the movie 10 minutes after sundown or right before the “end” of civil twilight.

 Additional & Unique Weather Information For Outdoor Movies:  

We are very lenient with our weather policy and understand the stress that our customer go thru when their loved ones party has to be cancelled due to weather. We don’t like anyone to miss out on Freedom’s games & movie experiences which is why we will apply a raincheck for your non-refundable deposit to another date in the future . This raincheck will never expire.. We prefer this determination be made no more than 1 day before the event, but understand that some situations may require 2 days notice so guests can be notified. On the day of the event & during periods of severe weather (rain, high winds, etc) where we simply can’t host an event due to dangerous conditions, we reserve the right to cancel your reservations. In this situation, an immediate raincheck will be issued. If conditions are not too severe and we can still host the event, we will give you the option to keep the rental.

Ratings & Formats: 

Because we encourage wholesome family entertainment, film selections with ratings of G, PG or PG-13 are preferred. Movies with R ratings should be discussed with Freedom Party Rentals management prior to licensing the movie. Rated X movies are not permissible. Freedom Party Rentals must be notified 14 days prior to the event of the title selected. The selected film must be available on DVD or Blu-ray in widescreen format.

Film Licensing:

 All non-theatrical screenings legally require a license obtained by your community or organization. Freedom Party Rentals is not responsible for obtaining licenses nor verifying that you have the appropriate licensing in place. If you are licensing,  licensing fees will typically vary due to movie titles, audience size and the nature of the event. It is advisable to contact one of the below licensing agencies as soon as your event date is confirmed. The film licensing company may provide a copy of the movie to use at the event. Again Freedom Party Rentals LLC will not be responsible for licensing and will not be verifying that you have completed this legal requirement.
