The Best Outdoor Furniture for Backyard Movie Watching

So, now that your backyard cinema is set-up, have you given any thought about seating arrangements? Before you answer that, imagine a scenario (or three). You’re on a picnic, sitting on the grass, sipping coffee out of the thermos, the works. You’re about to grab a BLT, and then you see hordes of ants and other assorted creepy-crawlers on it. Or, you’re in the park, having some good time with your friends, when a swarm of mosquitoes decides to barge in. Or, do you remember that one time when you were admiring the lawn in your backyard, and stepped in one of your dog’s mud pies? Now, apply that to your movie-night, and answer – have you really given any thought about seating arrangements?

Enjoying a game-night with your friends is all well and fine, but why not make most of it and minimize the risk of those pesky pests pestering you? Setting up a backyard cinema is somewhat of an effort, so why not go the extra mile and break out some chairs? Even if all you want to do is relax on your own, you still have to count on some unwanted company. There are a few ways to go about this.

Cheap Option

Just in case you’ve shelled out too much for the projector itself, here are some cheap options for backyard furniture.

Intex Inflatable Ultra Lounge with Ottoman

Intex Inflatable Ultra Lounge with Ottoman

The Intex Inflatable Ultra Lounge with Ottoman is an affordable, and laziest solution to lounging around. It measures 39 x 30 x 51 inches (W x H x D), and weighs pitiful seven pounds, making it your go-to answer to portable furniture.

It fills via a two-in-one valve, and empties the same way. Inflating it and deflating should prove an easy job thanks to the extra-wide openings of said valve.

Moreover, the bag features a cup holder, and includes an ottoman, so it’s perfect to put your feet up, literally and idiomatically. The ottoman also makes it quite versatile, as you can use them in conjunction, or two separate pieces, or simply use the ottoman as a flat surface. It wouldn’t hold any drinks or dips, though, so be careful about it.

As far as the rest of the specs go, the chair and accompanying ottoman are made of durable, tested 20.8-gauge vinyl, and soft waterproof flocked tops, side and bottom. You can just as easily set it somewhere inside, but it’s best for backyards and patios. At the listed price, you won’t feel all to sorry for it.

However, the manufacturer does warn that the chair is best set up in areas that are cleared of debris and sharp objects, so as to avoid tears and punctures. It’s all very well to have an expendable piece of furniture, but it doesn’t do any good not taking care of it.

Big Joe Dorm Chair

Big Joe Dorm Chair

Somewhat more expensive than the previous bag, but still on the cheap side, is the Big Joe Dorm Chair. Despite the name, the chair can be placed almost anywhere you like.

The material the Big Joe is made is quite durable, tough, and stain resistant. It cleans easily with just a damp cloth, and will repel water thanks to the waterproof Smartmax ballistic fabric.

The inside is filled with newer and 20% smaller Ultimax beans and conforms to your shape and position. For added strength and safety, the chair features double stitches and double zippers.

Best of all, the chair comes in a variety of different colors, with quite colorful names: Flaming Red, Radiant Orchid, Sapphire Blue, Spicy Lime, Limo Black and Zebra.

Big Joe 4-Foot Large Fuf in Comfort Suede

Big Joe 4-Foot Large Fuf in Comfort Suede

Still keeping it inexpensive, but going higher, we come to the Big Joe 4-Foot Large Fuf in Comfort Suede, and it’s exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a fuf (kind of a big bean bag) covered in suede for extra comfort.

The filling underneath the suede exterior is super soft and long lasting fuf foam. You have the option to customize your comfort and re-fuf at need. The Big Joe fits almost anywhere, from bedroom, through living-room, to your patio.

There are two positions, depending on what you want – for lounging, place it on its side, but if you want more back support, place it upright.

As its smaller cousin, the Big Joe in Suede comes in several assorted colors: Black Onyx, Blue Sky, Espresso, Sand Dune, Sierra Red and Steel Grey.

Reclining Options

If you feel that bean bags are to soft for you, but still want a good measure of comfort, you might consider getting a recliner chair.

Sport-Brella Recliner Chair

Sport-Brella Recliner Chair

Still keeping it inexpensive, we come to the Sport-Brella Recliner Chair. The name gives you a hint of what to expect from this product. Try to guess without looking at the picture.

The chair has three different positions for customizing comfort, enabled by adjustable hinges. The chair is not only good for backyards, it’s excellent for beaches, lakesides, outdoor sporting events, and similar (in)activities.

Besides the three chair positions, there are three umbrella/parasol positions (hence – Sport-Brella), for at least some measure of protection from the elements.

Besides the umbrella, the chair features a built-in footrest, built-in cooler pockets in both armrests, a cup holder (besides the insulated pockets), a built-in bottle opener with a zippered storage pouch, as well as heavy-duty frame and reinforcing bands of webbing.

Although it is somewhat bulkier and heavier than other folding chairs, the Sport-Brella is sturdier, and folds just as easily for efficient storage and portage.

Expensive Full Couch Option

If you’re overcome with the urge to splurge, consider going full couch for your patio, or even driveway, whatever floats your boat.

Giantex 4pc Patio Sectional Furniture Pe Wicker Rattan Sofa Set Deck Couch Outdoor

Giantex 4pc Patio Sectional Furniture Pe Wicker Rattan Sofa Set Deck Couch Outdoor

The Giantex 4pc Patio Sectional Furniture Pe Wicker Rattan Sofa Set Deck Couch Outdoor is a great way to spend your evenings, provided the weather is kind.

This is a whole set encompassing a sofa that measures 55.51″” × 30.32″” × 25.98″ (L × D × H), an ottoman (29.13″ × 29.13″ × 12.99″ – L × D × H), a neat little tempered-glass table (26.77″ × 26.77″ × 15.75″ – L × W × H). The seat cushions measure 24.61″ × 24.61″ × 4″ (L × D × T), while the back cushions stand at 24.61″ × 14.57″ (L × H).

Understandably, the set will have to be packaged in several boxes and it will take some assembly, but on the flip side, all the tools and parts needed are included in the deal.

It may not be the cheapest thing on this list (it’s downright the most expensive), but it’s worth every penny you shell out.

Outdoor Blanket

If you’re determined that nothing will keep you off the ground, at least consider something to put underneath. If you won’t believe your parents, believe Bear Grylls when he tells you that a layer of insulation below is worth three above.

JJ Cole Outdoor Blanket, Gray/Red, 5′ x 5′

JJ Cole Outdoor Blanket, Gray/Red, 5′ x 5′

The JJ Cole Outdoor Blanket, Gray/Red, 5′ x 5′ is perfect for picnics, but also your planned movie nights, especially if you’re planning a more intimate event.

It’s made of a durable fabric designed for outdoor use. The outside fabric is polyurethane, the inside is polyester, while the filling is polyester foam, making it both sturdy and comfortable.

The blanket stretches 5 feet in either direction when spread, and is completely waterproof. Although this does mean it can survive staying outside, best avoid situations like that.

There is a sturdy sewn-in insert that makes folding and storing it that much easier.

Mosquito Killer

If you are an entomologist, skip the following section.

NK63 Solar-Powered UV Bug Zapper, Insect Killer & LED Garden Lamp Included UL Adapter

NK63 Solar-Powered UV Bug Zapper

Instead of sprays and adhesive tapes that only make cleaning messy, try solving your buzzing problems with a bug zapper; specifically, the NK63 Solar-Powered UV Bug Zapper, Insect Killer & LED Garden Lamp.

Not only will you get an easy way to get rid of mosquitoes, you will also get a subtle nightlight that won’t interfere with the projector.

A UV LED provides the bait for and takes care of insects, while eight LED bulbs provide local illumination for your garden or patio.

The integrated solar panel provides the zapper with limitless supply of energy. There is also UL charger thrown into the deal for direct charging on cloudy days.

You won’t have the need for a bug attractant pad or anything like that, as just the bulb itself will be enough to lure them into their doom.

Maybe the best feature is the integrated light ambient sensor that allows the sandalwood zapper to automatically turn on the zapper at dusk and turn it off at dawn.

As for installation, you have the option of using the garden stake (included) to drive it into the ground, hang it like a lantern or simply keep it on the table.
