Hi All,

Its been sometime since I posted anything on the forum. I've just returned to work after the festive season and got enjoy some BYT over my holiday. I now use a Camp Chef OS 144 screen utilising rear projection - its a robust surface that is easily cleaned and looks the part. It is quite a contrast from my now retired Carls 16 x 9 BOC screen that is a veritable sail and I would frequently have my cinematic experience diminished because I was distracted by straining tiedown ropes and groaning joints in my aluminium frame. This however seemed never to be noticed by others watching, only me. The new screen is certainly smaller which I don't love but as they say size isn't everything - I must admit it doesn't evoke the same sense of awe I used to see in guests that had not been privy to the outdoor cinema experience previously. The epson EB1980WU 4400 lumen light cannon set to maximum output gives a great image (thanks to the members who recommended this one to me)

I've sold my cumbersome active PA speakers and mixing deck and associated plethora of cords and cables and replaced it with a sleek little all in one Lucas Nano 300 PA system. This little fellow is great, giving good sound without the low frequency output that impacts on the neighbours. I'm really happy with this little guy and would recommend him tho anyone. I use one power socket for the whole sheebang and another for the projector and last for the Bluray player (Happy Days)

My setup lacks the ingenuity of my earlier setup but is clean, efficient, and enables me to readily continue my soiree with outdoor cinema. I've attached a picture form January 1 where my 3 sons a had a couple of friends over to watch a preroll of scooter, trampoline and general high jinx clips from youtube followed by San Andreas which is great outdoors

Best wishes,
Steve


Steve! Welcome back to the forum.  It looks like a great setup and I can't imagine a better flick for outdoor viewing.  It is even better in 3D if you take your setup to the next level.  Great write up on the Camp Chef screen.  I have a colleague that has one that he uses for a Halloween display, he said it is great but really, really heavy duty from a construction aspect and heavy from a weight perspective.  Has that been your experience?  Thanks again.

Did anyone get anything good?  I didn't get anything for the Theater, but I did get some cool toys for the grill.

Not here for the grill or BYT but I did get a cool fish finder/GPS for my inflatable boat & A nice soft sided cooler for everything boat, Tailgating, theater etc..

But best of all I got the new Phil Collins book Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin


What kind of cooler did you get?  I got my dad an RTIC.  I would like to get one for myself, but they won't ship to Hawaii.

I looked at many of the soft coolers & the four I have are just bad.  Like real bad .

My Coleman Hard cooler  is great for tailgating along with about ten other hard coolers I have LOL

But all I was looking for was a soft cooler that would last 24 to 48 hours


Yeti, RTC, Polar & AO coolers were some of the best I found. So I picked by value of what meets my needs. So I picked the AO 24 pack cooler from West Marine on special. It should get me 24 solid hours 90% of the time & the next 24 hours 10% of the time as far as use goes. I also paid $5.00 extra for the stain proof material in-case I ever catch a fish Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked The polar or RTC would have been next but they were out of my price range.

As ice is free for me if I need more room I just take one of my other cheap soft coolers & use it first before the ice melts in hours not days lol



I was looking at those AO coolers too, they are highly rated on Amazon, but I have never seen one in person.  I hope you enjoy it!


Thanks! I hope your dad enjoys his. Nothing like a good cooler....................................cooker Grin Grin

So I got a little time to take the family to the movies over the holiday and we took in Sing.  Guys this was a really good one, I figure it should be out on DVD/Blu-Ray around the time the Backyard Season kicks back up.  The premise is that the characters are all entering a singing contest, each for their own reasons, as part of a bigger plot to save a local theater.  The animation is really well done, the music is fantastic, the story was engaging enough.  As you plan your summer season, I would definitely add this one to you list, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks sounds good!
