Title: My Backyard Theater
Post by: cheftom on December 18, 2005, 06:29:17 pm
Here are the first pictures of my screen and sound system.  These are taken from 30+ feet back standing right behind the equipment rack.

This is the same shot with one of our friend's to show the size of it. She is about 5'9" tall.

Very nice!

I think your is the first backyard application of an inflatable screen we've seen posted here.  I've always wondered about fan noise in a backyard setting.  Is it noticable?

Looks great !

You notice it if you really listen for it. otherwise it isn't an issue.

Nice!

Did you buy it or build it? It doesn't look like the 10K one that was in some earlier threads.

That is a great looking setup. Can you give us some information on your screen and your sound system.
thanks

The screen has a 16' X 9' projection surface and an overall size of 20' X 15' x 14' deep.
It inflates in <5minutes and deflates in about 10 minutes.
I can project from the front or the back.

The sound system is a B-52 1000 V2, it is a powered sub that powers that satellite speakers, this system sounds great and has plenty of horsepower to make any movie sound great.

I use a View Sonic pj755d  projector. It puts out a good picture and is plenty bright enough to fill the screen and then some.

The Dual DVD player and mixer are both NuMark brand.

If you have any specific questions, I will try to answer them.

What is the brand name for this screen and do they have a web site. I'm interested in possible purchase for my yard.

It is built by Open Air Cinemas  http://www.summercinema.com/

They have one that is slightly smaller and they make them up to a huge size also.  They are available in both 16:9 and 4:3

Hi,

Just wondering where you got the "Let's all go to the lobby..." animated clip.  I'd love to download it if it is available.

Thanks!

The screens look good. They do have full systems and newer model screens that are lighter and easier to use.  This is the smallest backyard system that they offer.
