Ok here's my set up. It's nothing fancy! No nice frame, no high tech equipment or anything else. It's just a simple barn yard set up![/img]

Nothing wrong with that , I wish I had those facilities at my place instead of having to go elsewhere.
Enjoy.

If you can watch a movie and hear the soundtrack, then that's all you need.  We tend to drool over the elegant set ups (pools, retractable screens, surround sound, etc.), but the basic goal for everyone here is to watch a movie on a large screen outside with family and/or friends.  Looks like you've accomplished that.  Good job.  And your setting is absolutely beautiful.  I would love to have that kind of property.  So would my daughter - she wants a horse.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi, hope.  Glad to see you've started enjoying outdoor movies!  But I'll say that's a little different than the "barn screen" I had envisioned...

  http://backyardtheater.com/forums/index.php?topic=3413.0

Some constructive criticism, if you don't mind.  I see you opted to take the screen material all the way to the ground.  That looks to be causing some screen tension issues (wrinkles/ripples).  I bet your image doesn't fill all of that height even at 4:3.  It also looks like you have some crazy long side ropes trying to hold the screen taught.

Did you try folding the screen in half and hanging it over the rod as suggested?  Then all you'd need to anchor are the two bottom corners to the ground as in the other thread's illustration.  Yes, it would be shorter top to bottom but I don't think you need all that height.  You could always get a longer tarp if it's too short.  Regardless, I think you'll want to get that bottom up off the ground.

I've used that design successfully, not on the side of a barn, but under a pergola that's built on the foundation of what used to be a barn.  I think it would actually simplify your set up a bit, too, as you wouldn't need to run those long side ropes.

Thanks for the input everyone.  I would have loved a pool yesterday! (it was HOT). But everything worked out good.

  Sparge, we haven't tried folding the screen as of yet. Instead, my hubby  has a wooden pole running across the top. and one across the bottom, so we roll it up like a scroll. Then he put grommets down the side of it (don't ask me why).
 However I printed off the info you  gave me about screen designs, and still have it handy!! Smiley
  I think he is just playing with ideas right now to see what HE can do!

But the kids seemed to enjoy it. I took a pic. of it @ night but mine didn't turn out that good, so I'll check & see if anyone else took any photos last night (it was kinda hard to tell if anyone was taking pic.'s because of the heat lighting we were getting last night).

Good man!  Tweaking things already!  Smiley

That's part of the fun of taking it outside!  Grin

I "hope" you have many enjoyable movie nights this Summer!
