I am interested in setting up an outdoor theater for down at the lake in 2 weeks for one weekend only. I would be using an HC1500, if a bon fire was about 20' away, would that affect the pic? It would be projected onto the back side of a 2 story garage.

The fire will be OK it is more of an event than a technology demo. A low contrast picture will be OK. Expect all the insects to like the light from the projector and crawl on the "screen". Try do use a surround sound system and sub you will be shocked how much ambiance that will bring to the experience

cheap does not mean value

On another forum dedicated to outdoor theaters, when this comes up, I ALWAYS say....

People don't go to outdoor movies for the piture or sound quality, they go to have a good time.

Almost ANYTHING you provide will be well-received.

Just a friendly update, this was an incredible experience!! We watched "The great outdoors", and "Ironman".

It was even better than I expected, and if you have the opportunity, I would highly recomend having an outdoor theatre night. Was a great time!!
