joerod...

What is the depth of the bottom ground part of the inflatable? It looks pretty substantial, which is good... I just want to get a better idea on how many feet back it extends.

I guess that would depend on the size of the trunk. I think it would be able to be squeezed into a mid size car's trunk...

please mesaure the support peaice that lays on the ground in back.. I would like an idea of how much depth the thing needs too.

I know I should $h%$ or get off the pot but I am not in a big hurry to get one at the moment. I am thinking more of one for next year after I have everyone hooked on the Gemmy I have, which does quit well..

Wow, that is much further back than it looks in the pick, it looks like it extends like 5-6 feet back..

Thanks and I will check back to get the final measure.

Joe and I have the same screen..I roll it up with a tarp around it and then secure it with a strap.

The bag it comes in is very small..but do not expect to get it back in the same one. I tried to find a duffle bag, but gave up...the tarp works great and protects it..also it then lays on the tarp when we blow it up..

used it this past Thursday for 200 people....very nice...BUT...winds are a killer...so it needs to be roped down

We watched Open Season and then Night At Th Museum on Blu ray. It was a perfect night! I was able to do the cool old classic ads before and in between.

I hope it is warmer later in the Summer or closer to Halloween because Monster House and then Haunted Masion would be awesome to do!

Thanks...

I am going to keep my gemmy for now then. I will probably get this one next year and upgrade to a newer projector. The biggest benefit of this one to me would be the ability to put the projector behind the screen.

But it does look real nice, who knows I may even talk myself into needing it this year.

Great idea...
I will have to remember that and put the screen up for a halloween movie night if it is as warm as it was here last year.

I guess it depends on the seller. I am not the seller. You could probably get it down some...

In that price area I have not found a screen that large anywhere. They are usually a couple of thousand!

OK, he says $350 for a 16x9. He quoted me that saying that is the largest size with a seamless screen. No blower included. Says they damage during shipping so buy one locallys. Apparently I arrange shipping through DHL. Send money directly to his account.

Does this sound right?
