I know you've probably seen this at the Jib Jab site, but I find ElfYourself.com far more versatile.

I used this as pre-show entertainment, using photos of our "movie patrons" for the elf faces.
You can add up to 5 dancing elves in one video.
There are 13 Christmas backgrounds and dancing styles from which to choose.
Each dance costs $1.99 to download.

I've also added this to the end of my Christmas Movie Night section on my site, so it may be repetitious for some.

First December Movie Night. Kids seemed to have a blast.
I was pooped afterward! Still, it was a good feeling.

Never sure of how to post the link. Always have to do it a couple of times. If this doesn't work, I'll try it again.

OK, I think the link works.

Last time I erected my Carls 16 X 9 BOC I noticed a significant amount of mildew spotting - looked like one of those ink blot psychology tests Huh.....This was the result of a hasty tear down with the screen being packed away while still a bit damp.

Yep, been there.  It had rained all night but I thought my Carl's screen dried out enough the next day.  It wasn't obvious that it was still wet down inside the folds of the black border.  After rolling the screen up that moisture wicked out of the border onto the white screen.  I ended up with mildew spotting along a good portion of the lower border edge.

I didn't take any pictures as I didn't want to draw further attention to my less than pristine screen on this forum. I certainly wouldn't have used it anymore unless it could be cleaned so I took some of the advice. Added 2 cups of a beaching agent to boiling water, a clean long handled brush. It was like magic watching the spots disappear and when I hosed it down after 5 minutes it looked almost brand new. I had actually put the screen up in its frame to do the job and left it up for a good long time to dry out.

Now I have an almost pristine screen again and am super pleased with the advice posted. I certainly won't be putting the screen away damp again and can now show our big New Years Eve showing without concerns of a nasty screen.

Many thanks.

If I could trouble you with a few questions...

Where did you hear about using boiling water?  Did you wash down the entire screen or just spot clean?  If the latter, did the bleach solution then make the cleaned areas stand out as brighter/whiter than the rest of the screen?  Thanks.

I will be watching this thread closely.  Since I have 2 used 9 X 16 Carl's screens without frames...  I'll need to make something before spring, so it'll be neat to see what others have done. 

Hi SirRobyn,

Here's a wooden frame I built a couple years ago for one of the screens I sold you:
http://backyardtheater.com/forums/index.php/topic,8210.msg71045.html

It allows for easy removal of the screen and it far taller than Carl's Freestanding Frame. Instead it just uses Carl's Wall version of the kit.

How did you know I was thinking of building a wood frame   it's like you know me!

It's actually nice to see that setup.   I'm not sure I would bother with the pulley setup, but it's good to see a simple wood frame can be effective.   Part of me wants to use metal, but wood could be a much quicker easier build so I guess we'll see.   Thanks again for point that out.

Whats is the make of pj.

Dunno if you're asking me, but the PJ visible in my last pic is a Sanyo PLC-XT35. 4:3 5000 lumens. I sometimes use it with my 24' screen too and it's still bright enough if there isn't ambient light.

I completely rebuilt my frame this week so that it would be sturdier (the corner poles always sagged over time) and added a third support in the middle so that I can lift it by myself. It's basically the same design as Creative Shelters, but using the layouts and measurements from Carl's Place. The downside is that it takes a lot more steel poles and a bit longer to assemble. Here's the frame when I finished it on Friday with a 16x9 FlexiGray screen installed.
