Backyard Tent Cinema!
Turn your tent into a movie theatre with our projector and cinema setup!
Backyard movie nights are awesome. So are sleepovers. We combine the two!
How it works:
Option 1: We can set up your tent for a sleepover with beds for up to 10 people and you can hire our projector as an add-on. Once it gets dark simply connect your laptop, phone or media player and project your movies onto the inside wall of the tent! You'll be amazed at how perfectly the tent becomes a projector screen.
Option 2: Let us set up a backyard movie theatre inside your luxury bell tent. Approximately 15 guests can enjoy a 5 star movie night under the stars while relaxing with rugs, cushions, throws and blankets that we provide for your comfort and convenience. Don't worry about the weather: our tents are 100% waterproof!
The projector has built in speakers and its own battery that will last 3 hours on a single charge, or you can plug it in.
To play your movies, simply connect your smartphone or laptop using the cables that we supply. It works great with YouTube/Netflix/Stan/Amazon/Disney+, or anything that's already on your media player. We provide cables for all popular smartphone and laptop models.
We're all about making things easy and stress-free for you, so before we leave we'll run through everything and give you a stool to place the projector on. We'll also show you where to put it for the best image.
The great thing about a Buone Notti movie night is that it's completely independent of the weather. With traditional backyard movie nights you have to cross your fingers that it won't rain, but we know that in Sydney you often get storms at the end of the day! That will wash out your setup and ruin your night - don't take the chance! Our tents are totally waterproof so even if it rains your cinema will still be awesome, warm and dry - and you can plan your party with confidence.
This is an unforgettable experience that we're so excited to bring to you and it's exclusive to Buone Notti.

How to use the Buone Notti Movie Projector
Help Using Your Projector
Your movie projector comes fully charged, tested and with all the adaptors you need to use it with your:
Any Android phone with USB-C connector
Apple Macbook Pro with USB-C connector
Any Windows or Mac laptop or media player with HDMI connector
Playstation 3 or 4
Xbox 360 or Xbox One/Xbox One X
DVD or Blu Ray player with HDMI connector
Your projector is perfect for watching your favourite streaming services like YouTube, Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime or movies purchased from the Apple or Google stores.
Note for Foxtel Go users: Foxtel Go requires you to purchase an additional "Multiroom" account to play anything on an external device like our projector.
However if you're having trouble first please do the following:
Check all connectors are firmly in place
Check the HDMI lead is firmly connected to the projector.
Remove any cases/covers from your mobile phone - these can sometimes get in the way of the connector, so it doesn't go all the way in.
Picture but no audio?
Your projector has a built in speaker so if you don't hear anything, something's wrong. Check:
Is the volume on the projector turned up? Use the buttons on the rear of the projector.
On some laptops you will need to tell it to send the audio to the projector along with the picture. So if you are seeing the picture on the projector but hearing audio on your laptop, go to the audio settings and select the Viewsonic Projector as the audio output device:
On Windows: go to Windows Settings - System - Sound - Choose Your Output Device
On a Mac: go to System Preferences - Sound - Output
Audio but no picture?
Are you using Foxtel Go? If so, you will only get audio (and no picture) on the projector, unless you purchase the "Multiroom" add on for your Foxtel account. There is no way around this other than paying Foxtel Go for this ability to be enabled on your account. It isn't a fault of the projector and we regret that we cannot give a refund of your projector hire fee if this is a problem for you.
Focus the image by rotating the dial on the front of the projector, next to the lens
If you're streaming video over the internet, your connection could be poor. It might be better to download the film directly to your device before using it outside.
