I've YET to open my outdoor theater. Seems we went from an early spring to 100 degrees. And I KNOW my projector won't work much over 90. It overheats and shuts down. Almost every weekend has been too hot, too humid or it's rained or threatened rain. OR we've had some family thing to attend.

Anyone else not been able to open?

I've done only 3 movies so far this season and had already done 3 times that at this point last year. It rained for the entire month of May and has been CRAZY HOT a couple of weekends...very frustrating.

...Have you considered one of those cooling mats that you can purchase for laptops and gaming systems? I wonder if that would make enough of a difference between overheating or not.

I'd doubt it. The fan draws air in on the side and exhausts it out the other side. IF it was more like a laptop where the heat is on the bottom, it might work. The problem is it draws in the hot air which really doesn't help cool it down if the incoming air is 95 degrees.

How about a little ice bucket next to the projector where the air goes in much the same way wealthy people used to cool their homes with? The air cruises over the ice before entering the projector and is much cooler than the actual temp outside...

Might be a little nutty but trying to think out of the box here...lol

Yeah, but what happens when the hot air hits the cool air? Condensation/humidity blowing right in to the projector. So far this season, I just go down to my nice cool basement and watch there.

Although, it IS down to the 80s this week......
