Nice job Don!  That looks like a good sized screen.  It also looks like you just rolled out onto the golf course and plugged it into the ground.  Nice yard!

Tell us more about your setup.  And welcome! (if I missed you before)

Tjhanks Randy, It is 12x20 trapeze material, stretched onto a cedar frame .The bottom of screen is 4 ft up from ground level. You had given me the idea to use the trapeze when you done your screen with it.Like you, I, used to have a heavy plywoood setup and the winds here took care of it. I am currently working on a hanger that will allow it to swing back and forth in windy weather . Also I would like to mention that everyones screens and setups i have seen here posted are great.. You all have done a fine job.  This is really a cool forum. Don

Don,

  Thanks for sharing your pictures. I'm glad to see the trapeze is working out for you. I am curious to see the back side of your screen and where the pj booth is on your property.

Everything is looking good!

Hello Hired, Look in the photo i posted that says projection booth / concession stand, That window you see in there is where i  set my projector at, then i run my cable down from the combo dvd /vcr player into the projector, i slide open the window and i am ready for showtime.It makes it nice having all the equipment inside except for the speakers which i hang outside of the shed .I tried earlier to post a full photo of the outside of the shed but it was to large so i had to settle for a shot of the inside, As for the backside of the screen it is no different from the front ,other than having a 2x4 running vertically down center to act as a frame support. you cannot see the support when the movie is playing i.e... it does not bleed thru. I project the image at around 50feet  to the screen , that way i can fill up the entire screen.One thing i found out is those throw distances are not very. accurate on projector central . Don

Man, that looks like an old General Store.  That is way cool!

And count me in as a ZZ Top fan.  Which reminds me, I haven't listened to them in a few years, so I will.

Love the projection booth!  Awesome!

I noticed you mentioned that your pj throws the image about 50' to the screen.  What king of projector are you using?

Iuse  a BenQ 6100 which i believe is 1500 lumens ,ive been using it now for 3years . I honestly can tell you that it is cabable of projecting at least another 20 ft and still show a nice picture.

Don:  It's amazing the quality that you can get out of a projector outside of their normal recommended maximum projection sizes.  I used a 1400 lumen Sharp Notevision for three years and was very happy with the image. Now I have a 2200 Lumen Sharp, and the image is even better.  It almost makes me want a bigger screen. 

Almost. 

Great job on the setup!
