I went to Best Buy and bought an inexpensive LCD projector and hang up a bed sheet as a screen. We bought a blow up screen but it was so noisy all we heard was the fan motor keeping the screen inflated. So, we returned it to Walmart. I use LCD projectors at work for PowerPoints so I am familiar with the hook up. For sound I plug in my guitar amp. It is usually after the pizza part of the evening and my wife makes pop corn for our guests.

I have a 2500 lumen projector with good contrast.

Its a Toshiba tdp-xp2 it's working well for us. Cost about $525.

A buddy gave me a really heavy audio amp that was top of the line 20 years ago. I've been careful to pair up speakers to match impedance so I don't blow it up.

We've watched Pirates of the Caribbean ( no pizza there); Fools Gold (no pizza there); Hot Fuzz (no pizza there); Run Fatboy Run (shoulda been pizza there); The BirdCage (no pizza there); National Treasure (no pizza);

For those movies - we took a king size sheet (I bought 20 rejects for halloween decorations last year) and strung it up on the porch.

I've got a 16x9 ft piece of blackout curtain cloth (one piece) and I'm working up a frame for it out of bungee cords and electrical conduit.

Since we are down south - it gets dark pretty early so the projector works really well. We did a test against the garage door and it's gonna be so cool.

The ressurrected popcorn popper from the convenience store is working well - so between that and pizza we will be well covered.

I'll send pics when the big screen is in place.

The State of California is having a "garage sale" this month, to try and make some money (honest!). They have 53 projectors available. See Items - Great California Garage Sale for details.
