1  Backyard Theater discussions / Popcorn, refreshments and party ideas / For home use good Hotdog maker for small groups of up to 20 to 30 on: October 16, 2017, 02:36:34 pm
I don't have one but this could be used inside or out for home use of small to medium groups. Good reviews on Amazon under $40.00 & look simple to use.

Maybe we should keep posting our ideas here for them to see until we know what is happening here.

We are still doing a service for these people

I am a member of the facebook group but I know lots of people who still do not use facebook, and it's not the best when trying to search for specific topics. If anyone is interested, here are a couple of other options to rebuild the community.

https://www.reddit.com/r/backyardtheater/ - This subreddit is not very active (currently only 7 subscribers).

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/159-outdoor-theaters/ - I've lurked this forum in the past and saw some good info, but again it's not as active as this site once was.

Thanks for the post

The Facebook group seems like a good bet and obviously it's used more now that new member approvals aren't happening here. Even though I didn't start visiting here until around 2009, I sure miss the old days.

Same here!!! Where are Sparge, OA, Dennis, Gil, Etc etc, etc

After six years one of my sports sites shutdown with two days notice. I had to mrush to contact as many people that I could.

Got me thinking. What happened if it happens here.

If anyone wants to e-mail me their name they use here with contact info please feel free to do so. I guess in this case we would meet on the facebook page.

Any ideas

I bought a refurb epson mm 30 in 2008 still going strong. IMO you don't have to have HD for outside.  Yes it is better but I am still happy with my unit

Ok, so I understand the condition of this forum is not good.  And what I'm about to say you may not like, but I think it needs to be said.  I understand that no new members have been approved since 2016 and there were only 2 approved that year.  I understand that the person in charge just recently went 9 months without logging into the site.  It sucks.  It really sucks.  I hate the fact that no new members are coming in and that the forum admin won't let someone help him out, but it is what it is I can't fix that. 

However I also hate it when someone on the forums actively tries to drive people away from this forum.  I get that people are not being approved and you may have posted the facebook link for those people, however there is another thread where another member directs people who cannot get approved to this forum, to a BYT facebook group.  It has been around for sometime and he bumped the thread less than 30 minutes after you posted this thread.

Personally if I was an admin on this forum I would delete threads of this nature.  So I'm going to kindly ask can we please maybe just maybe limit the facebook group advertisement on this forum to just one thread?  Preferably the other thread as it specifically is directed at folks who cannot get approved as opposed to current members.  Is that to much to ask? 

Thank you,
From this Backyard Theater Forum User

11  Backyard Theater discussions / Screen specific / Re: Gemmy Screen cleaning UPDATE I NEED ANSWERS..Thanks on: July 02, 2017, 08:27:21 am
G76, It'll be fine.  While I have no experience with gemmy screens, I definitely have a lot of experience with less than perfect screens.  And I'm talking about the plywood ones.  If it is generally dirty all over it'll equate to a slightly dimmer picture.  If there are stains on it about the size a dead mouse would leave or from the droppings of a mouse I doubt you'd see any of that with the movie rolling. 

The screen at the night-sky is so weather worn that it has dark green streaks running up and down all over it.  And yes it's bad enough you can see them during the movie less so in the dimmer scenes, much more so in the brighter scenes, but you can still see the movie and folks still have a good time, and this is after years and years of the thing standing in the northwest weather without any maintenance. 

One of the BOC screens that we had at the Sit & Vue we bought with black mildew stains spotted all over the screen.  These weren't streaks they were little tiny black dots, never saw those stains at all during the movies, but you could see them during the day. 

The reason I say all this is so if your freaking out about the stains you'll stop.  Clean them up as best you can then enjoy the movie.  IF the stains are even visible at all during the movie, your probably going to be the only one that notices.

Thanks SR  Your last line is what I tell people all the time LOL........Well the rains came & there went my first movie in three years....part of BYT.......Maybe over the next couple of days I can test the system........Thanks again SR & Rg

Sorry, I must have sold it.  It was a carls screen with the Gemmy clips on it. He made it for me several years ago.

The only screen sheet I have is a Sima and a screen with a blk boarder and gromets

I do have 2 or 3 of the Backyard screens (frame and sheet)


Thanks so much RG for looking.

I do have a backup screen myself but since they are all not 100% the same I will try the old screen first. I don't have much time to adjust the new one now...

What Gemmy model do you have?I (think) I have an extra one (just the white sheet)


RG I have the 12 foot deluxe from like 2008.
14  Backyard Theater discussions / Screen specific / UPDATE NEED ADVICE! Re: Gemmy Screen cleaning on: June 29, 2017, 07:30:47 pm
Ok I should know this but my screen was always clean in the past. Do any of you show movies with a few light color stains on your screen. In the past when I had a moth stain it would not show after dark....I realize you can't see the screen but the above cleaned it up well except for a couple of light pink stains the size of  2 by 1.5 inches/ I also have one small hole the size of 1/6th of a dime

What do you all think? How clean are your screens during the year & what do you see if you have a few stains?  Thanks
