The Greatest Showman
An excellent feature on this list is the musical drama that tells the story of P.T. Barnum (played by Hugh Jackman), a famous entertainer who created the Barnum & Bailey Circus, and the lives of the circus's biggest acts.

Rated PG-13 and released in 2006, The Pursuit of Happyness captures the life of a homeless single father, Chris Gardner (played by Will Smith), as he takes custody of his son, Christopher Jr (played by Jaden Smith), and his struggles to provide a meaningful life for them.

The Lion King (2019)
One of Hollywood's most popular themes, The Lion King (2019) is a remake of the 1994 edition, with famous celebrities like Beyonce and James Earl Jones starring as voice actors. The computer-animated musical is a typical 'good versus evil' story about Simba, who has to flee after his uncle Scar murders his father, Mufasa. Years later, he returns to reclaim the throne with the help of Timon, Pumbaa, and Nala.
Why Should You Watch Family Movies With a Smart Projector?
Some smart projector features that make them great choices for watching family movies include:
Low Blue Light Exposure
Projectors produce their display using reflective imaging and diffused lighting technology, which significantly reduces the amount of blue light entering the eyes. The light source shines onto the projector screen, which absorbs most of the harmful blue light and reflects an eye-friendly image.
Thus, smart projectors mitigate the risk of digital eye strain caused by prolonged exposure to blue light. Also, since smart projectors can produce larger screens than most TVs, you and your family do not need to sit too close to the display, which reduces the risk of suffering eye damage.
High-fidelity sound when watching movies plays a huge role in keeping the audience glued to the screen. Some smart projectors have powerful built-in speakers with advanced sound technology that delivers your movies in excellent HiFi sound, creating an engaging atmosphere as you watch your favorite movies with your family.
Movies and visual content generally are a typical case of 'the clearer, the better,' and some smart projectors can deliver movies in crystal-clear images for an immersive experience. With resolutions between 1080p and 4K, you can enjoy your movies on a cinema-level display.
You can now say goodbye to squinting and trying to make out the details when watching dark scenes or using the projector in well-lit rooms. Some smart projectors display images in 900–2400 ANSI lumens, producing a bright and clear picture in well-lit rooms or outdoors.
You no longer have to fret about how to download or stream your choice movies, as some smart projectors run on built-in operating systems like Android TV. With Android TV, you can access premium entertainment from over 5,000 apps via Google Play.
Some projectors also have several connection ports such as USB, HDMI, audio jack, and LAN for connecting laptops, headphones, gaming consoles, TV sticks, hard drives, etc., for more alternatives as you plan your family movie night.
