Well finally had opening night in Las Vegas.
Temp was great 94 degrees at 9pm and no wind.  Movie picked was Night At The Musueum.

Just the family....wife and four kids.  Kids had a blast, they are already planning parties.
Will post pictures soon. Cool Cool

Screen in place (16 X 9) blackout cloth.  Used Optoma DV10 projector.
The two speakers worked ok...but need to upgrade sound system.

Question:  If I buy a 1000 watt Sony home theater system is this going to be enough.  Have the same problem as Dano.....the guy on the other side of the wall (Satan) already dislikes my three boys.  The usually stuff that three boys can do.  They are an older couple with no kids etc etc you get the picture.  Have already had the cops out for yelling too loud.  But  the two 5 watt speakers are not going to cut it.  Should I pull the trigger.....looking forward to showing another movie next Friday.  Any advice?

Congratulations! Your up and running. Very good choice for your first movie. Now, like everyone else here, your looking to tweak/upgrade your setup. (it never stops)  Wink Post some pictures when you get time.
You could invite the couple over for a movie, maybe they will understand in the future that your just trying to spend more time with your family.

Congrats, Mark!  Glad to hear you're up and running.

A 1000 watt Sony system will be enough.  Does it have a sub?   Grin  And remember, it does have a volume control!  One consideration is that you'd probably have the option of choosing different pre-set sound fields, if you need to.  Something that's not surround (again, if you need to) and will fill your viewing area with nice even (but not so loud) audio, for those nights when you need to keep the volume low.  So you can concentrate it, and make it easier to hear at lower levels.

And you never know, the neighbors might be movie/drive-in fans and this could end up offering some common ground.  That may be a stretch, but it could happen.  I would attempt an invitation but you know your situation better than any of us here.

Have fun and good luck!!  Post some pics when you can.

The Sony system will be more than loud enough. I have an 850W Sony surround system in my basement theater, and it is PLENTY loud.

Expect more trouble from your neighbors. You might want to invest in a cheap decibel meter and look up any local sound ordinances so you can be prepared when LE stops by.
