There’s an article in Wired on How To Build Your Own Outdoor Movie Theater.
Dave Banks wanted a outdoor movie theater–which consisted of a projector, dvd, two speakers and a large screen–but he didn’t want to pay the retail price of $3,499 for one, so he made his own. He even made the 12′ x 6′ screen with pvc piping, buckets, rope, cement, and a piece of blackout cloth.
The total price, which included $125 for help assembling the screen, was only $248.
That’s some pretty awesome savings for a bit of work. [Lifehacker]
