“This would be a really cool idea for people to rent backyard movies, we’re in a pandemic. You can have your own. You don’t have to go in public,” Chasadee Hawkins, Co-Owner of Chambana Backyard Movies, said.

“Just with being able to spend time with your family in the comfort of your home and not feeling like you have to be around other people in public or if you have smaller children and different things like that,” Shatyra Hawkins, Co-Owner of Chambana Backyard Movies, said.

The women posted about their business on Facebook three days ago. They already have events set up and say their phone has been ringing non-stop. For more information, check out the link below.
