Hi all I am days away from ordering a projector - I am in South Africa and a friend was going to buy it for me in NY and suddenly I am so confused .
Firstly I live in a farm in the middle of the countryside .
I want to show old classic movies - blade runner etc and newer movies Life of pi etc to the local community - we are a farming community and a sit down 'drive' in will be great .
The people will sit down on my field with their picnics and watch the movies , about 100 people on a 40m x 60m field .
All was going well with the setup , the screen -an aspect ratio 16:9 flexi white screen arrived today from Carl's place (16ft x 9ft ) , my speakers 2 x 400w active samsons 15' and 1 x 800w active sub are on their way .
Now the projector and thus my question and my panic - I have ordered a Benq sh910 because it is very bright and seemed to have very good features but suddenly while reading up about movies it seems I may have made a mistake and the aspect ratio of this projector will not be optimal for showing movies and leave me with black strips on my screen .
Is there a good projector which is specifically for movies , can I get the Benq to work - I am even prepared to look at buying another screen but dont want my audience seeing anything else but a 'full' screen .
What to do ?
