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...

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

I was lucky enough to be there on the 100th at 5:10 to enter the water at the same location as Charles did. What was shocking to me was that the only two people in the world there at that time were me & the author of the 12 days of terror. We just looked at each other & said ready & we went in together. We each had bought flowers & put them out at the spot. It was a day(s) I will always remember.

Trying to show a small group the film 12 days of terror on July first on the 101 anniversary of the first shark attack of five in over 12 days in NJ in 1916. Jaws was a goldfish compared to this one shark or group of sharks.


BUT I have not used my equipment in three years & I am taking care of my aunt. Will everything still work?HuhHuhHuh? Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

One week to go & I hope I can do it all.

Southeast Idaho has had crappy weather and high winds until this last week.  I hope summer give me a break and lets me get a few movies in before the weather turns again.  I feel your pain.

The rain here has nor helped plus my aunt took another bad turn this week

Hey G76, Glad to hear from you.  I've been kind of bad keeping up on the forums the last few months.  If you haven't read the thread the Sit & Vue is gone.  Jake has stayed in SC, a few weeks ago I got my equipment back, and Jake shipped his stuff to his new home in SC.  When I drive by his place all I see the back side of the plywood screen surrounded by knee high grass.  All of the rest of the theater is gone off the property.  The developers aren't going to do anything at the Night Sky this summer so I'll just be over there doing my thing instead.  First night was May 26th.  I have about a month and 1/2 worth of double features on VHS at this point and looking for more. 

Sad to hear all this tough news.

My Aunt is in the hospital again so I have zero time
