Considering this backyard/portable setup for movies and football season

I'd kind of prefer rear projection so people aren't constantly walking in front of the projector... I did want the versatility of being able to project from the front to if we decided too - like for areas where we don't have the space to project from behind the screen. I'd be using a separate amp and speakers so that part is sorted out for sound. This is what I've come up with so far:

Viewsonic PX700 HD
Elite Screens Yardmaster Dual 2, 135" 16:9

We would probably be doing a lot of Disney movies for my daughter, Georgia football, and maybe some stuff in the front yard for Halloween, etc...

Most everything would probably be evening to night viewing and my understanding is that the higher brightness will provide more flexibility during brighter start times.

If you're dead set on the screen and size due to the looks or whatnot, then that looks like a good choice, but I'd personally never pay that much. I have the Camp Chef 144" outdoor projection screen, and I love it. Currently going for $215 on eBay (I think $193 if you want to wait until in stock from Amazon), and it can also be used in front or rear projection setups.
