Projector Enclosure Keep The Bugs Out

Just thinking ahead for later this summer. I am in the process of upgrading my existing projector in my theater. My plan is, if I can't sell my old PJ for a reasonable fair price, I'll just keep it and use it for an outdoor patio theater.
The projector is an older JVC rs2. It works great. So I don't want to just use it outside without a little TLC while in use.
I'm thinking of making a wooden frame wrapped in musquito netting or something equivalent.
Has anyone made something similar?

Where I live,in the middle of the summer, mosquitoes will carry you away. I'm thinking the heat and light from the projector will attract an awful lot of bugs. At some point this summer, I plan on making some sort of enclosure. If and when I do, I'll post it.

We've been setting up backyard theater for three years now, this is our fourth season this year and bugs in the projector is not a problem.
Where do you live?
Have I met you at a HT meet?

Yes, I would bet our musquito problem would make you think twice about sitting through a two hour movie.
We have a small wetland area about 100 yards away from our patio.

If they're anything like they were last year, I'll be sure to remember to invite you over to get a taste of the action.

Been there done that.
Tried the candles tried the tiki torches, you name it.

You know, you don't have to be so smug.
Get off your high horse and enjoy the hobby.
