Great advice guys. I appreciate it.
I guess because my projector has always been mounted to my ceiling and requires that the pj lens be 3 inches below the top of the screen, I completely forgot that I would have a "coffee table" option. The machine has never shown an image right-side-up!
Great idea. I'll do that and breathe a little easier.
I plan on attaching hooks along the top edge of the screen/dropcloth and then just hanging the hooks along my gutter across the front of my house.
My friends and neighbors are excited, as we have never done anything like this before.
I will take photographs and post them here at the end of the weekend.
For what its worth, I'm in Minnesota.
Brown, while a few days ago the forecast for Friday was:http://www.wunderground.com/autoasp/...conds/rain.GIF
now it is:http://www.wunderground.com/autoasp/...rtlycloudy.GIF
So things are looking better.
Salmoneous, thanks for the point about timing. I forgot that it was 2 hours long. I figured 1.5 hours. So I think at 7pm I'll start the Intermission reel and then at 7:30 sharp (which is when it gets really dark this time of year) I will begin with my personalized intro to my theater DVD clip and then right after that Star Wars will start.
Keep the lifesaving ideas and information coming. I'm already in better shape than I was, thanks to all of you.
For those who have done this before, which dropcloths, etc. have you found to be the biggest or best and where from (i.e. Home Depot, etc.). Just don't say Lowes, because I don't think we have one here.
Thanks SOOOOOOOOOO much!
