FREE 196" Outdoor Projection Screen - Lancaster, PA

UPDATE - screen is taken and picked up. Donated it to a non-profit.


Hi Guys!

I built my outdoor theater two years ago. Now, I'm moving abroad. Can't bring it, as much as I'd like to.

The screen is 196" (14.2x8 feet, 16:9 aspect). The screen material is plywood, and the frame is pressure treated wood. I spared no effort building it -- the plywood is properly stained and primed (for weather-sustainability) and the front (projection surface) is flat white paint.

I've kept it covered by a tarp when not in use, so it's in excellent condition.

Photos:





The screen comes apart into four 4x8' pieces, but once put together again, the seams will need to be re-caulked and the surface repainted.

As stated above, screen is taken already. This post is here for archival purposes .

Have an awesome day!

You lost me at pickup.

But you gave me a great idea for building my own!

So just caulk the seams before painting. I'm gonna try that for sure.

And it's gone!

Donated it to a non-profit. Couldn't have asked for a better cause .

Here's a photo of the theater in action, taken the night before I dismantled it.



The picture is composited from two photos - one with flash, one without. The screen area is from the photo without flash (of course) and the rest from the photo with flash.

It really did look this good!

Kdos, it's taken already.

Bqmeister, it's a Sony VPL-HS20, the movie is Wallace and Gromit and the curse of the Were-Rabbit. The sound system was as good as the picture too .. 5.1 surround sound, and I used parametric equalization to calibrate each speaker pair individually. It was nice just playing music out there .
