Just for a frame of reference.

Those of us on the Facebook group point people to posts on this forum that contain good information on setups. 
It is a bit harder now as photobucket put up their pay wall and a lot of the pictures on this forum are not functional now.

I could understand the point if this were an active forum.  It is not.  It goes for large periods of time with no new posts even.  The great thing about the internet is that there are so many outlets to share information.  I don't feel it's a competition rather a collaboration.

You may have better luck using the Facebook Group BYT - Backyard Theater. at https://www.facebook.com/groups/byt.backyard/

I understand you are targeting the commercial aspect overall, I am not sure how many on the one I linked use theirs for commercial use but there may be a few though I doubt it.  Just another outlet for information for you.

Good luck if you haven't had your account approved.
There are more active members on the Facebook group.  See you there.  Smiley

Nice idea, but bigger question is why aren't people being allowed to register. I understand there could be numerous reasons, but just letting us know would be cool. I have more people I meet who would love to be on here, and they can just lurk. Is there anything we as members could do to help?

My first frame was PVC.  2" Schedule 40.  About $9 per 10' piece plus the joints.
I attached a very precise diagram of the design.   Grin

I used blackout cloth and bungees on it.  The PVC did flex but it was minimal.  I designed the blackout cloth with 3" of space between it and the frame.  The bungees were 6" I believe.

I leaned it against my house and used a 1" come along on each side to keep it there.  Never any problems.

I upgraded to an inflatable Gemmy.  Putting the PVC together and taking it apart after every movie became a hassle otherwise it was fine.

Get the appropriate size for the conduit.  Replace the nut with a wing nut for easy fastening.
Attach the speaker via bolt to the opposing side.  Simple.

Hey Guys,
Does anyone use a BenQ projector ??
I am thinking about a new projector for this season and saw a BenQ at a fair price but have never had any experience  with one.
I am currently running an Optoma that is 2500 lumens and was thinking as it is roughly 7 years old it might be time for a little brighter
unit...although I've had no issues with the old one, the new Optoma reviews are not what the old ones were..
Well that's my deal in a nut she'll
Any input is greatly appreciated

I have been using a BenQ W1070 for about one and half years now.  No problems with it.  I get compliments on the picture every time I use it.  I'm satisfied with it.

IT WAS A HA HA! Everything is free. The signs are to give you the 60/70's feel.

I love it.   Grin
It's even better because I have thought about doing the same thing except making the prices way to high.

Wait... Some of you actually charge your friends for food and drinks?   Shocked

For the past year I have stocked the coolers with water, Juice Boxes or Huggs, and Bud Light, made popcorn about halfway through the movie for everyone.

This year I bought an electric smoker.  We did smoked chicken legs and wings for the last get together. 
I'm not sure what we are doing tonight though.

I never advertise what I am doing for food or drinks.  I tell everyone to bring their own food and drink that way I don't have people showing up for a free meal.  The regulars all know the drill, bring something when you can.

Popcorn Machine is next on the list I think.

[color=red"]Our ever changing setup."][/color]

Change is good......I once belonged to a nudist BYT but when nothing changed so I left.



No seriously It is good for some. But in my case I have 90% of what I started with in 2008. I am happy with it as it is not my only hobby. I guess in a perfect world I would have HD but I am happy with what I have. Just the big picture does it for me. But keep it going I love to read about it

More about the change in screen size and location more so then the audio and video I guess.
I'm happy with what I have.  It gets the job done. 
This isnt my only hobby either.  I have been trying to reign in the amount of "hobbies" that I do have though.   Grin

I dont think this is a question that we can answer.  Do you know everyone that will be in attendance?  If so, then you should be able to decide if they will accept and appreciate this movie or not.
If you dont know everyone, you can let everyone know about it at the party and ask if anyone would like to see something else or use some sense to read their responses. 

I would show it, you probably dont belong at my house if you dont have a sense of humor.   Grin 

Honestly, most music videos today have more skin and sexual innuendo then this movie. 


It seems everyone has good points here but this one I agree with the most, quote from Mykal "you probably dont belong at my house if you dont have a sense of humor.   Grin  "  I second that!


I won't be invited?? Cry Grin

Everyone is always invited.  Its just a matter of when you decide to leave and if you will ever return.   Tongue

Buy the house!

Nope.  It is to far from the beach, about 35 minutes one way.  For what he is asking it should be out on the island.
It also has some issues that would push me away from buying it even if it were closer. 
Honestly, we like renting, for now.
