I purchased the first one from WalMart and got it in the mail last week.

I plan on putting it up tomorrow and showing the flick "The Wrestler"

Hopefully this gives you a reference point. So it is about 4~4.5 feet off the ground.

Homedepot.com has the deluxe screen for $197 + free shipping. You can search around for a $10 coupon.

http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...00954+10401010

Mine is on the way.

BTW, Walmart.com price has gone back to $193.

ok so the gemmy screen arrived today

i cant get the screen to stand up straight

am i doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the screen?
the zippers are completely closed

the one fan is louder than the other, so it is possible the other fan is "blown"??

thanks!!

you could always stick it ontop a picnic table or something LOL then it would be higher then 12 ft. but if you wanted the 12 foot one you would have to pay more and get it at target. maybe try making your own strap.

You guys may want to look here (from other older outdoor screen forums here)
http://www.hy-inflatable.com/movie.html or blimpscreen@gmail.com or search this forum for blimpscreen.

Can anyone who tried one of these tell me if they feel they are worth purchasing and if the picture quality is good, I know it is a under $200 option so I will take that in consideration....thanks

There are some pretty heavy sex scenes in the Wrestler. Hope no little ones were corrupted.

For those with the Gemmy screen, if one fan stops working, check the cord, one fan plugs in to where the other is. Sounds simple, but it's easy to just assume it is broken.

Have any of you thought about these? Not exactly projection material, but the light surface could be hung on any side of a building.
