First off, THANK YOU to everyone on here for all of your tips & info. It has made our vision a reality. We had our 1st showing & it was AWESOME!!! We have taken a lot of time to make our set up/tear down as minimal as possible. We even velcroed our speakers to our cart for safe transport. Again, thank you all, I love this site!

Like the projector cart... how tall is it?  Looking for something similar so that I can project over the deck railing but not have this huge table that I'm currently using to block part of the view.

I should add that it's super sturdy too! Good luck! We did go to Michale's craft store & buy some styrofoam to lift the projector up a bit. We also zip tied the multi plug unit onto the side & we added prongs on the side to wrap the extension cord around. All inexpensive & convienant fixes.  Grin

Unfortunately the deck rail is 36in...  but I think I have a different way without even purchasing anything.  :-)

We used an 8x10 white tarp that we ordered from Home Depot for $12. We attached D-ring like metal clips to two pieces of rope & opened the upstairs windows. My husband lowered down the rope one side at a time & I attached the hooks to the two top ends of the tarp. He pulled the tarp up & when we got it where we liked it, he simply shut the windows on the rope to keep it in place. Then we attached rope to the two bottom corners & used to stakes that we placed int he ground at either end. Took all of 10 minutes to do & very easy to take down. Hope this helped!
