The wife and I had a private showing of "Casino Royale" just for the two of us for our anniversary tonight. Celebrating 12 years today! After tonight, I can say that I am finally happy with my screen. The natural colored canvas drop cloth worked flawlessly. The bad news was that we both got tired before the end of the movie, I had no idea it was that long.
Anyway, here's the run down on my set-up. A true testament of what can be done for very little money if you keep your eyes peeled and toss in a little luck. Even with the new screen I made today, I still only have just over $100 in the entire backyard theater.
- Barco Data 701s CRT
- 12' x 7' natural colored painter's drop cloth screen
- Some ancient Fisher stereo equipment (sounds great and plenty enough for me)
- Cheapy Apex DVD player
- Custom roll around metal cabinet to house everything. Made from an old commercial copier stand.
