Lockdown ideas: Create a Cinema in Your Garden

With the country in lockdown, we’re all having to get creative when it comes to filling our time.

Are you a film buff missing the experience of watching the latest blockbuster on the big screen, a couple in need of a date night or a parent looking for a new way to keep the kids occupied?

Why not create a private cinema in your garden?

Of course, most of the camping community already have tents, but if you need a new one this summer, the new Octagon BlackOut from Coleman delivers a great movie experience and it’s perfect to set up in the garden. Simply set up a screen, grab some popcorn and settle down to watch your favourite film in this spacious tent which blocks out 99% of daylight. 

A rethinking of the popular Coleman Octagon tent, the new Octagon BlackOut features the brand’s revolutionary BlackOut Bedroom technology. This not only stops 99% of daylight from penetrating the tent’s fabric, but also keeps the temperature inside 5°C cooler during the day and 1°C warmer at night – perfect for creating a cosy, dark environment for watching films. Designed to sleep eight people, this tent is big enough to host the whole family and the fully integrated groundsheet and no-see-um mesh on the windows will keep bugs at bay so you can focus on what’s going on on-screen. 50+ UV protection and an impressive hydrostatic head of 4500mm also means that, unlike other outdoor cinemas, you can use it whatever the weather.   

Retaining all the characteristic features of the original Coleman Octagon tent, including 360° views, fire retardant materials and a hinge door, this distinctive tent creates the feeling of an extra room and is a great way to make the most of your outdoor space during lockdown. Benefit from front-row seats, the food and drink of your choice, your pick of films and even take it with you on your next camping holiday. It’s sure to be an investment you’ll enjoy time and again.
