Frequently Asked Questions
How much does an event cost to produce?
We have multiple packages with our various screens, high quality projectors, and sound systems designed to fit any budget.
Each event’s price is also based on many variables:
- The frequency of use (large discounts are given for weekly, monthly, seasonal and events on consecutive days)
- Labor hours – typical outdoor movie events from setup to strike are 5-6 hours (2-3 hours for movie and pre-show entertainment and less than an hour setup and strike) If the customer would like the screen setup earlier to attract a larger audience an additional labor will be clearly stated in your custom proposal, no surprise fees.
- The size of your audience will affect cost for licensing and sound system size.
- The type of media presented: No Additional charge for digital presentations on DVD or Blu-ray – High Definition…currently most popular selection (Yes!…There is a difference with our HD and you can notice it on our high quality real cinematic screen surface!) 16mm and 35mm film projection also available for additional costs.
- The location for your event – Parking lot, beach, grass field, pool area, muddy swamp? Some locations require different types of screen anchoring when staking into the ground is unavailable, using water ballasts or drilling maybe a better alternative. Is there a water source or hose connect nearby? To ensure safe screen operation every outdoor screen regardless of its design must be anchored sufficiently!
- Travel costs. Any hotel/fuel travel fees are included in original quote.
Help cover event costs by presenting sponsor information, advertising & commercials prior to the show.

*Other sizes are available by request up to over 115 feet high!
*IMPORTANT: Our screen sizes are measured by width of the actual picture size, not the overall structure size and are available in widths of 10, 16, 20, 24, 30, 40, 52, 66, 80, up to more than 115 foot wide (this is the actual picture viewing area)! Others may claim they have larger screens by adding the entire width of the inflatable frame to their picture area. It’s a good idea to ask what the surface area (width X height) of the screen is when comparing. Additionally, all of our AIRSCREENs can withstand winds of up to 26mph especially important when your event is located near a lake or on the beach. Large inflatable structures can act like sails and can endanger your audience if not installed properly or carry inadequate wind ratings and your event can be compromised.
What happens if rain threatens your scheduled event?
Upon planning your event, Twilight Features will work with your organization to pre-schedule a rain date or select an alternate location…Our unique weather guarantee ensures you will not pay for services when rainy weather affects your event…in most cases as long as the event is rescheduled to another available date within 90 days you will only incur a small rescheduling fee which will cover lost labor hours. Also since our screens can withstand 26mph winds you can feel secure in knowing that high winds are rarely a problem.
How safe and stable are your screens?
Even our largest screen is capable of withstanding up to 26mph winds. All screens are fixed or staked into the ground using metal stakes similar to ones used to secure large tents. T.F.I. will maintain a safe “No Go Zone” around our equipment and clearly cone out equipment areas.
Although we are based in South Florida, Twilight Features will travel to much of the state of Florida. In the areas we do not service we can lead you to our strategic partners throughout North America.
