Outdoor cinema Outdoor cinema using the Intel NUC Mini PC.

I’m taking in as much of what’s left of Summer by embracing the few remaining warm evenings outdoors.

Barbecue dinners followed by a cosy snuggle on the outdoor sofa will soon be a distant memory.

I’ve had my outdoor cinema set for a while now but haven’t shown it here. I was initially powering it via my laptop but it wasn’t working quite so well, until I received my Intel NUC Mini PC.

Outdoor cinema Intel NUC The Intel NUC is a mini PC with the power of a computer tower. It’s size means it fits easily into the palm of your hands and can be carried anywhere.

It also means a neater workspace area without large tech equipment overshadowing the aesthetics of the space. For me, it’s the ultimate home media centre.

It’s fully capable of supporting the transmission of 4K movies too.

I decided to put my Intel NUC Mini PC to the test for my outdoor cinema screening.

Setting up was so easy and intuitive. It booted up instantly, with everything automatically updated.

The Intel NUC Mini PC fan was super quiet, so an added bonus for uninterrupted film viewing.

It has amazing built in wi-fi and Bluetooth capabilities, so image streaming was seamless.

All I then needed to complete the outdoor cinema experience was a large retractable screen, a projector and sound system.

Then my favourite part was to style up the space with an outdoor sofa and lights. The kids watched their favourite Marvel movie and I streamed my favourite guilty pleasure movie Dirty Dancing. outdoor cinema It was so fun!

If the weather stays warm, I might do a little barbecue outdoor cinema party.

Summer may be coming to an end but that doesn’t mean the joy of wide screen cinema need to end. With my Intel NUC Mini PC, I’ll be creating a home cinema in my basement family room. I’m now on the search for a cute popcorn machine to add to the vibe.

As I write this, I’m currently on holiday in Asia. It’s amazing that I could carry my intel NUC Mini PC and small portable Bluetooth keyboard in my handbag!

All I have to do is plug in to my hotel large screen TV and the possibilities are endless. The kids have been enjoying some gaming on the hotel widescreen TV. Hope you’ve enjoyed the post.

If you are thinking of upgrading your desktop or organising your own outdoor cinema, then I highly recommend getting an Intel NUC Mini PC.
