Homemade Movie Screen…

Theater

It took a while, but I finally got my screen built to go with my homemade movie projector. I’ve posted a few pictures here…

Just a few quick details, the screen cost me about $30 to build, but looks like a $100 screen. The actual screen is “black out” cloth which is used to line the back of draperies. I had been told that it stretched, so I purchased a 96″ x 54″ piece. However, when it came time to stretch it onto the 96″x54″ frame I built, it turns out that the width only stretched, not the length. Unfortunately this kept me from being able to get the cloth completely stapled to the frame… Eventually I will replace the cloth with a piece a couple of inches longer…

Screen being built...
Here is a picture of the frame being built for the screen. I used some black cloth to cover the frame and create a nice black border

Light on...
This is a picture of the general setup down in the basement.

Donkey...

Monsters and me...
Finally, this is a picture of Monsters inc. with me in front of the screen for scale.

AJ and I love going to the Rigdon-plex.
The movies are awesome, the concessions plentiful and the proprietor is always a gracious host! Last I heard, my son was requesting a screening of Spiderman II…
