I assume no one has answered this. Ok... do you guys just order extra screens ? (I don't mean the whole blow up, just the cloth) I'm wondering how I can get a cloth fit tight with the elastic clips like the one that fits from China to replace the first one now...

I haven't had any grass stains but I've had to wash it. It IS very difficult. You can't throw it in the washer because of the clips. I think stains would be the LEAST of your worries if you tried that.

I used a large/wide bucket and hand washed it like Granny Clampett. Then I hung it out to dry.

I've thought about ordering a new one but it is quite expensive for what it is. It really needs to be a little heavier material IMO. Also, is the clips/rings were reversed so that the rings were on the screen side, it would be much safer just to throw it in the washer.

Finally got it cleaned up.

I started talking to him yesterday about my new summer project.. going from the 16' screen to a 20-30'. I'd really like the 30', and his price is very, very good. I'll have to think on it.

I ended up ordering the 20', I'm interested in what projectors others have used with success. I'm feeling my HD20 isn't going to cut it.

We're going to try and do 2 shows in April. One next Friday, the weather is supposed to be good. I think right now we have "A Bug's Life" planned.

Then the 22nd, where of course, we're going to do Avatar

We'll see how it goes. I took it out and inflated.. damn! His measurements were close to right, it comes out 22', slightly bigger. Which is OK by me!

Still fiddling with the right projector for the job. Anyway, that's a different story. I will say this: they come in this nice cylinder, and I'll be damned if I've ever figured out how the hell they do it, because no matter how tightly I try to fold the damn thing, it's always at least 3-4 times that size!!

Welcome Back!

So after a 10 year hiatus I am back posting about outdoor movie nights. So much has changed in the years. Now we can use YouTube to show clips and trailers as well as hook up an ATV to the projector. These days I am using an ABOX A6 projector, two universal tripod stands, ATV, TaoTronics 100” screen or a VivoHome 17 foot blow up screen (weather permitting depends on which one) and finally for sound a Martin Logan Vision X with their Dynamo 1000w Subwoofer. Oh I almost forgot also an awesome cost effective backlit Inteset universal remote. So how did all of this workout our first round last weekend? Amazingly fun. We had family in from Colorado who loved it. Nothing better than s’mores with a movie. We checked out trailers, and parts of Twister since it was so windy out. I plan to blow up the 17 foot screen tomorrow night. Pics coming soon...
