Thanks,
I build all my consoles to fit our needs. I don't like just one console for everything.
I have a 4 unit console for backyards (HDMI) set up for rear projection. NO wires,
projector for kids to touch.

Rich,

I did not know about purchasing a replacement fan.  I did tie the internal plugs together so they would not come apart though.

Birthday movies are still around but want the screen package for  nothing.  Parks and Rec are still showing movies with large crowds.  One of my largest crowds in showing a movie in a cemetery.

Go figure

SR,

Nice write up.  I considered a wood screen when I first started but ended up purchasing a Gemmy Deluxe for portability.  I used the screen at home and during beach and desert camping trips.  The frame lasted about 5 years until of the fans sucked up a stick and killed itself. Angry  After the frame died I recycled the screen, all the clips and even the storage bag.  I now use the screen on the side of my 20 ft box trailer when camping and recently I finally collected all the parts to make a 1 inch EMT frame in my yard.  Now when at home all I have to do is clip the screen to the frame and it is ready to go.  With the screen is removed the frames is not even that noticeable.

As for maintenance, I always fold the screen and place it in a small bag for storage.  The screen has creases but like seams you donít notice them when the show is playing.  To keep it clean I just utilize soap, water and some gentle scrubbing.

The Gemmy screen has served me well for more the 10 years now even though I have made the above modifications along the way.  As for the storage bag I used to store my Jeep cover. Grin


Jim at one time on here when a fan died on a Gemmy you could buy a spare from the company.....plus I guess you know sometimes the plug would pull out so many of us taped them.

My backyard screen was all wood like the first D-I I worked at. However my screen was a billboard material over the painted plywood. It lasted 10 years. If it got dirty I just washed it with soap and water.

RD since you are in the business of doing movies do you notice that BYT is still growing ,leveled off or is it declining over the last five years???
