Well I had my first showing,not quite outdoors but in mums double garage!
Invited 2 neighbors, Had a Drive-in calendar plus made tickets,which they were thrilled with ( I was not allowed to tear them in half, when they came)

All set up well, but projector was turned upside down and for some unknown reason the only way to get the resulting pic the right way up was "rear behind setting"
Also maybe it was a little too far from screen ?All but the main movie were good
resolution."Superman returns" was dark and not as clear as the trailers shown before,but overall watchable.

It was a good test run and even had my Peter's backyard movies -FOX clip animated.
also made curtains for either side of the screen and a Dolby hi- fi stereo sound was excellent!
some pics
Also animated Mums dog in the MGM logo lions roar -which made us all laugh..

Felicitations and congratulations, sir! You are now officially a "backyard theatre empresario".

That doggie in the MGM banner is a hoot. Great work!
