I really should learn to keep my grand ideas in my head. After replacing our faulty DVD player on the weekend so we could get virtual Santa back up and running, I mentioned to the family and neighbours that if I ran speakers outside, we could play movies instead of just virtual Santa. As always, things escalated quickly. The problem with the window is that half of it is covered by a security screen which can't be removed. Instead, we dragged out a huge piece of white material (the side from an Ikea gazebo) and tested projecting through ti. It worked perfectly. So, I then spent half of Sunday working on a proof of concept. We hung the screen across the open garage door using hooks at the top and rope on the sides to hold it taut. I then set up the projector and DVD player in the garage and hooked up an old 5.1 sound system I had lying around. Connected up five speakers and fired it all up. It worked like a charm (after a bit of fiddling). It was bright sunlight outside, so I couldn't see anything on the screen to line things up, so we took down the screen, closed the garage door and hung it on the inside. The picture is huge and the sound is great. So, this Saturday night (weather permitting), we'll be playing 'Frozen' as our first ever driveway movie. One of the neighbours is even supplying popcorn. To add to the effect, I've set up the snow machine in the garden beside the driveway. As soon as the freezing starts in the movie, I'll hit the remote and cover the viewers in snow. Fingers crossed all goes to plan. I'll try to get some pics and video.
