Today is National Drive-in Movie day, but at Market Apartments, we’re busy celebrating “Dive-in Movie Day,” a day where apartments can play a film right by the pool! Your residents can lounge on the reclining chairs while watching their favorite film, splash along to the soundtrack, and appreciate the gesture offered by your property!

Resident retention idea: apartment pool night with a "dive-in movie" night!

Residents at this property enjoy a “dive-in movie night” right by the pool!

How to Throw a “Dive-in Movie” party and What You’ll Need

To throw your own “Dive-in Movie” party, the most important things you need are things you already have!: a pool and people to fill it! To make the event truly magical, string up some lights or colorful flags.

Invite your residents through social media profiles, or fun invites on their doors!

In order to project the movie, you’ll need a projector, along with a large sheet or screen. If you don’t have a professional screen, no fear! Here’s a handy guide to lead you step-by-step in constructing your own backyard movie theater (or in our case, poolside movie theater!).

Lastly, tell your residents to bring their own floats for the pool! You can also decide to provide snacks and drinks if you want. If you do, be sure to also provide plates or napkins, to make for easy clean-up.

Remember to remind residents about reviews

Any time after a successful and thoughtful resident event, you should be reminding residents to leave reviews on the usual channels: Yelp, Google, Facebook, the works! To remind residents, you can pass out “review cards” as they leave.
