I know the season for me is almost over but the price was right soooooooooooo I did it.

Epson Pro X8000      6000 lumems projector.   I'm getting two lenes for the unit.

The standard zoom and the long throw for additional $3000.00 This will open my options for placing the PJ. I do so many different type of venues this will make placement a lot easier.

Thanks SR, you know I got some really useful advise from the BYT forum members a couple of months back when it came time to purchase a new projector. Here it is in action the Epsom Powerlite 1980WU with its 4400 lumens, great picture quality and this is one of its first outings as we're still in Winter. The trailer proved handy and I'm certain to use it again, the gear is heavy and I think I'd be less motivated to put on a movie if carting the stuff was too arduous. My last setup was far more convenient and time efficient though less picturesque in its outlook. So far all is good.

Pictures look great, looks like you have a really great setup.  Also I really like the idea of using the riding lawn tractor.

Hi All,

It's been some time since I posted but I'm still an avid reader of the forum. Our family recently updated our weekender and my first thoughts were that this place would BYT nirvana. My 8 year old son had a mate out on Saturday night and we watched Mall Cop II - good fun for kids. The new AV buggy is the ride on mower trailer which serves well for lugging the gear from the shed to the yard.

Here are some pics.

Still going strong. The only thing I have replaced was the rope I use to hoist it up.

Very, Very few.  Sadly I suck at taking pictures, which really is to bad because I love looking at them.  I always think I'll take them tomorrow or the next day and it never happens.  Somewhere I did take some photos of the screen with the plywood off of it when I replaced it.  But there are two photos here and really that's about it.  I'll have to dig though my files to see if I have anymore.  http://backyardtheater.com/forums/index.php/topic,8658.0.html

It's sort of interesting looking at that post and the two pictures.  They are not taken from the same time.  The first photo is from 2009 looks like I had just painted it.  But if you look at the bottom of the screen you can see that the plywood is only as wide as the frame, and at the top the frame sticks up above it.  That would have been 7X9'.  In the second photo you can see that the plywood is wider than the frame and that you can't see the frame above it.  Now it's 8X12.  And that is what we moved to the new location. 

It's also interesting at the bottom of that page is an August 2014 post from me where I talk about the possible closure and how I thought we would probably have one more season which of course that would have been this year and obviously didn't happen.  My oh my how things have changed in just one short year.  And some changes have ended up being for the better.


Funny I always pictured you in the city don't ask me why Shocked It is great to see the pictures maybe some of your regulars have pictures taken from all these years

They probably do.  I should send out a request on the E-mail list.  Another good Idea thank you Rich.  No I'm not in the city, but there are houses close.  My house is the smallest lot on a  dead end road.  There is or should I say was some fruit trees before the building went in.  Also the property behind the screen is wooded but it's not mine.  I also have a neighbor who's house is just on the other side of our property line.  Funny he never once came to a movie and use to complain about the noise when we had our issues back in the beginning.  Oh, well it's all water under the bridge now.  But I've got my fingers in the new Sit & Vue and now the Night-Sky as well.  The new Sit& & Vue while far from perfect really is an improvement over the old place in a lot of ways, though I will always miss seeing the screen in my backyard.  The Night-sky reminds me so much of the old Sit & Vue except that he has a projection booth, and to be frank it's kind of rundown, but still it's got me hooked because of the similarities.  I got to take pictures of the Night-Sky next time I'm out there.

I kinda thought the same thing.  Why don't I think of these things.   A few bungee balls, maybe a center support added, and ta-daa...equipment cover.  Or even people cover.   Really inexpensive, modular, and simple.  Think I'll try this next spring.

The old Sit & Vue was on a hill, I had a little platform halfway up the hill at ground level that the projector sat on, with no enclosure.  If I had built a minature one of those back then I wouldn't have had to cancel the movies for every little shower.  Wow I could have really used one.


I was just thinking Roll Eyes  Do you have many pictures of the old S & V
