Giant DIY Outdoor Screen
Want a super-giant screen for watching movies outside? Willing to do a little work of your own to get a clean-looking massive projection surface for less than $500? Then this might be a good solution for you.
We were originally looking for a large screen for projecting on the side of our live-work building that we could still disassemble and reassemble if need be. Ours is 245" diagonal (10.5' high x 18' wide) but they offer a number of different sizes. And of course, we spray painted our conduit black before assembling.
We hung ours between two trees with pulleys and sandbags, making sure to keep the bottom corners untethered so it moves in the wind and doesn't become a giant sail. The kit comes with a mix of screen fabric, metal connectors, and bongo ties and just requires some metal conduit (easier to acquire locally than to ship) to make it all come together.
If you're looking for something smaller, retractable, and more plug-and-play, though, check out this one.
