Plan A Backyard Movie Night With Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

Do you know how to create an backyard movie night?  It is pretty simple if you follow these steps:  

  1. Treats
  2. Movie Set-Up
  3. Fan Items
  4. Movie Time


Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is available NOW Digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD™,  4K Ultra HD™, and Blu-ray.  Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, the film’s storyline continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians(Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket) must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.  


You have to have fun treats when watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.  For our backyard movie night, we chose an easy snack:  Galaxy Cake Balls!

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the cake mix, sugar, flour and vanilla.  Cut the butter into cubes and add into the same bowl.  Add the halloween sprinkles and mix until combined
  • Using a small ice cream scooper, scoop some dough and using your hands, roll into balls.
  • Using a double boiler, melt the white chocolate
  • Dip the dough ball into the chocolate
  • Using a fork, completely coat the ball into the chocolate and place onto the cookie sheet
  • Sprinkle some sprinkles onto the tops of the balls and place into the fridge for 15 minutes

Movie Set Up

We used a Portable pocket projector and Tailgater speaker.   We connected these to our I-Pad Pro where we had downloaded Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.  

Fan Items

There is definitely some fun merchandise that goes with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.    We currently are in love with these Geeki Tikis Mugs.  They are so cool and just as fun for us adults to use as they are for the kids! We have also been playing with the Guardians of the Galaxy Dancing Groot RC. We love that it dancing to whatever music is near it!

Movie Time

Now, you can use your projector pretty much anywhere.  We have used it on white privacy fence, in a garage on a white sheet, and for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we used a garage door.  



How do you enjoy movie night in your backyard?  Do you have big parties like us or just your family?  Do you make fun snacks?
