Turn Your Backyard into a Movie Theater
For most of the country, August represents the last few weeks of summer. You’ve gotta make sure to those barbecues in, have one last go at the slip n’ slide, and, naturally, you need to turn your backyard into a movie theater.
Thanks to the pretty ridiculous CineBox Backyard Theaterorour totally awesome hack, now you can!
Next, the projector. There are some adorable super mini projectors out there, but for this kind of scale, we recommend the Optoma Pico Pocket Projector for $322. This projector connects to iPods, iPhones, and anything that can be connected via mini USB or an HDMI cable. The LED light source lasts over 20,000 hours, images are projected up to 120 inches diagonal, and, obis, you’ve got a powerful battery pack.
Finally, sound. Big Jambox to the rescue! The Big Jambox’ll set you back $300 but is sure to provide endless hours of party time, with or without a projector and outdoor movie screen. If you’re planning on taking your show on the road, be sure to check out our hack for making the Jambox even more portable.
That puts us at a grand total of $822! Definitely still a splurge, but much more doable that the CineBox. That being said, huge props to the CineBox for inspiring us to come up with a backyard movie theater hack! :)
