"Beetlejuice" is a classic, and one I know she likes. I'd forgotten about that one. Thanks.

Never seen "Signs", though, so may have to check it out. Cheers again.

Signs pretty darn scary......a not so nice close encounters, suspenseful, no gore all anticipatory

Hi, I'm in need of a few suggestions. My 13 yr old is hosting a sleepover tomorrow night and wants me to set up the BYT for her and her friends. She wants to show "something scary". Her request was 'The Conjuring' - which I've seen, is appropriately scary, but is unfortunately R-rated. I don't remember it being overly sexual or heavy with bad language, but I'm not comfortable showing something R to her friends.

Last year she showed 'Insidious', so she doesn't want to do that again. She's also not keen on showing the sequel. So, we're at an impasse.

Any ideas? I thought 'Poltergeist' but her reaction was something akin to 'meh'.

Cheers in advance.

Looks like you had a great time.

Wish I could say the same for my event. Sad

We got rained out both Friday and Saturday night.  So, sad for Santa.

Always such a roll of the dice here in Seattle. I ran a show on June 16th and it started POURING in the middle of the show. Fortunately we had 3 easy-ups so folks had a place to sit (a few even stuck around). But it least it gave me an excuse to launder and dry my screen afterward.

Fugetek I would think the name alone would sum it up. With so many affordable name brands I could not imagine taking a risk on something like this. In the very early 90's my first sharp LCD projectors had that screen door effect. But back then that was state of the art and much easier to setup than the three tube projectors.

A few more pics...

1. The rack and PJ are undercover.  You can see the rain on the ground just past the tripod legs.  The screen and speakers are out in the on-again, off-again rain.

2. I use clear, 55-gallon drum liners over the 15" two-way speakers.  They're cheap, nearly acoustically transparent and kept the speakers bone dry all night through several downpours.  The screen is attached to the pergola overhead.  Normally, the legs just stand free on the concrete.  Due to windy conditions I used a pair of rather unattractive cinder blocks to hold the legs in place this time.

3. Another shot of decorative lights strung around the perimeter of the pergola.

4. My Norman Rockwell-esque photo taken through the barn window.  I wish the focus would have turned out on this.  I needed a tripod to compensate for the lack of flash and needed to disable auto-focus to set the focus past the window itself.  It was actually taken on the run as I was heading up to the roof to tend to the snow machine.

The weather tried to put a damper on our Christmas in July movie night last Saturday - quite literally!  The forecast called for rain and potentially severe winds overnight.  Rather than stake down a 20-ft sail in the backyard we opted to set up our "small" 10-ft screen in the pergola.  That afforded our guests (and our equipment) some cover from the elements (including SNOW!).  We're lucky to have that option when the weather turns unfavorable.  Technically, it was still an outdoor movie because the screen (and speakers) were out in the rain.

We showed a triple feature... an old classic, a newer classic and something for us night owls:

  White Christmas
  National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
  Santa's Slay

Aside from the Christmas tree, decorations, cookies and gift exchange we had one more Christmas-time surprise for our guests... SNOW!  I set up a snow effect machine on the roof of the barn to drop snowflakes down into the attached pergola area.  I snuck out during the Thieving Santa Gift Exchange to crank up the snow machine!  The kids loved it!

I've attached some pics...

1. I took that pic from out in the open side of the pergola.  Those are SNOWFLAKES in the foreground!  Grin

2. The Thieving Santa Gift Exchange in progress!  For those of you who know my son, yes, that's him!  He's officially taller than me now.

3. Up on the roof, looking down through the pergola... this is what helped me make it SNOW!

4. Some of the decorations including the tree!

5. And more decorations, including a string of Christmas Story Leg Lamps!  Grin
