|Outdoor Movie Theater|
Anyway, we originally got the setup to have outdoor movie parties with the neighborhood kids, but found that we use it quite a bit! This winter, we bought a ceiling mount, and mounted the projector in the basement. New Year's was a blast with the neighborhood kids, and they really get into the movie with the big screen. The projector mount was $25 on Amazon, and included a 15' HDMI cable that I needed. I use an Amazon FireTV stick to stream movies and shows.
As far as the setup, I purchased a ViewSonic PJD5155 3300 Lumens SVGA HDMI Projector from Amazon.com . At $300, and not an HD projector, I was a little worried about the picture quality. I am a little bit of a stickler about video quality, and I must say I am truly impressed. When streaming in HD from the FireTV, there is slight pixelation, but barely noticeable at all. For the screen, I purchased a Vivo 100" screen on Amazon for $60. Below is a shot of the projector mounted, as well as some of the decor in the basement play area!
