Finally got a permament projector screen

#1 by Eivind Mork , Sun Nov 08, 2015 2:35 pm

For my Super 8 I have a projector screen I can hang up in the roof. It is too small, though for my 16mm Elmo 16CL. For this I have used a white sheet, that is; I did until yesterday. Now I finally got a projector screen mounted to the roof at my cabin (where all my film stuff is). The size is perfect for my 16mm. Got it for free from the school where my mother in law works. They are about to replace all of this old equipment as they are building a new school with more modern solutions. I guess I should build some wooden casing around it as it would get a higher WAF (Wife acceptancy factor).

one thing about screens, now the home cinema is making a move forward with the digital age its meant there are hundruds of very good and well priced screens arounds. Motorised screens,(16:9) 100 inch for less than £100 including the motors, check out amazon. For us cine film's collectors this is great, theres never been a better time for buying very good screens of all shapes and sizes.

Nice one there. I am in the process of upgrading my screens too.

My electric 16 :9, 10ft screen is finally going back into position again just as soon as I finish my next block of night shifts! Cannot bloody wait now!!

OK, so here is our living room, as you can see it is only a modest size and the darn TV and its sound set up takes over one alcove, the sliding doors seperate the living and dinning room, and the three pieces suite, while very comfy, is rather big. Where would you blokes puit a screen or would you make do with setting up and putting away as and when.
I'd love and electric screen but am also looking at the type you simply pull up,

Go for a permanent electric Tom. It was the best investment I ever made and I initially only purchased an electric because our dog used to bark incessantly as the manual screen was pulled down. Now he doesn't even make a sound!

Thats what i'm thniking now, trouble is that darn TV set up would be in the way, that gap between the sliding doors is only 60 inches wide.
