If you love movies and also enjoy hanging out around your fiberglass pool from Aviva Pools, then why not combine these two passions into one unforgettable evening? Picture this: the soft, mellow glow of the pool lights, the gentle chirping of the evening cicadas and a shimmering screen of cinematic magic. What could elevate a more splendid evening?

If you’re fortunate enough to have an Aviva Pools inground fiberglass swimming pool highlighting your backyard, why not extend its purpose beyond those simple, sun-soaked dips? Perhaps it is time to consider hosting an unforgettable night at the movies with family and friends around the pool.

Not sure where to begin? Here’s how to host an upscale movie night by your luxurious pool that will leave your guests in awe:

1. Invitation excellence

Begin by curating a list of guests who appreciate the finer things in life. Send out sophisticated digital invites or handcrafted notes. To take it up a notch, you may want to embellish them with a gold-foil touch or an embossed design. These can signal the evening’s opulence.

2. Curated film selection

Instead of mainstream blockbusters, delve into classic films, award-winning international cinema or indie gems. Think “Casablanca,” “La La Land” or “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” Your guests will appreciate the thought that goes into selecting a film that offers both entertainment and artistic merit.

3. Luxurious lounging

Replace traditional inflatable pool floats with more refined options. Consider padded chaise lounges, draped with plush throws. Or you may want to opt for sophisticated modular outdoor furniture. For those who prefer to stay on land, set up a cabana-style lounge area with plush cushions and soft lighting.

4. Gourmet grazing

A movie night is incomplete without snacks. But forget the regular popcorn, soda and Red Vines. Instead, think gourmet. This may include truffle-oil drizzled popcorn, artisanal cheese platters, gourmet sliders and delicate pastries that will elevate the entire experience. Don’t forget a selection of thirst-quenching, mocktail beverages.

5. Technology and sound

While the pool and the overall ambiance play their part, the real star of the evening is the film. Invest in a high-quality outdoor projector and a crisp sound system. For a truly elevated experience, consider hiring a local tech company to ensure seamless movie projection and sound

6. Warmth and comfort

Depending on the time of year, evenings can get a tad chilly. Ensure your guests’ comfort with chic outdoor heaters or a contemporary fire pit. Soft, cashmere throws and blankets can also be made available.

7. Thematic decor

Drawing inspiration from the movie of the night, add touches of thematic decor. This could be in the form of elegant table centerpieces, pool floats or even the attire you suggest your guests wear.

8. An after-film soiree

Once the credits roll, let the night continue. Dim the lights, switch the music to some soft jazz or soulful classics and let your guests revel in post-film discussions, more gourmet delights or even a midnight swim.

Hosting a movie night by your Aviva Pools inground fiberglass swimming pool is about more than just watching a film; it’s about creating an extraordinary experience. In the embrace of luxury, comfort and the best of cinema, your backyard can transform into a space of elegance, camaraderie and sheer delight.
