recommend a projector and a screen please?
Posted by: space-time

I would like to organize a small birthday party for one of my kids, and we think we could invite a few friends, stay outside and project a movie. The siding of the garage is not the ideal surface but I could try a linen... however why not get a nice screen? and also a 1080p projector.

Something affordable, something to project about 100-150" diagonal.

I am thinking to make this a tradition an use several times each Summer.

Thanks

Screens are low tech, inexpensive and plentiful. A free-standing one you can store easily sounds best for you. I’d just pick one off Amazon or whatever.

I have an Epson MovieMate but I believe it's out of production. Maybe find one used? If looking at new, I would still stick with Epson, but don't have a specific recommendation

Don't forget the need for speakers. If a projector provides sound, it will be inadequate at best.

The MovieMate speakers are actually decent enough for a room or a small outdoor gathering

Hmm. Includes a subwoofer? A sub really makes a difference for home movie viewing.

Nope. It's the size of a double shoe box
