Go big and come home: this 20 foot screen will make your backyard theater the envy of the neighborhood. (Photo: Amazon)
There is the home theater, then there is the home theater. You would be surprised how much of a great experience you can have in your garden without spending a fortune.
You will of course need a projector (more on this in a minute), but let’s start with the screen. For a limited time and while stocks last, this
HYZ 20ft 16: 9 Inflatable Projection Screen Drops to $ 150 when you cut the $ 50 off coupon on the page.

Let me start by saying that this is one of the
numerous 20ft screens available through Amazon; most of them sell for between $ 10 and $ 20 more. But I didn’t choose this just based on the price; I like it because in addition to the usual tie-down pegs and rope, it comes with water bags.
If it’s a windy night, you can roll out these bags for extra stability. The stakes do not often stay staked and the ropes present a risk of tripping. Water bags solve both of these problems; they go inside the triangular base of the screen, totally out of the way.
Another plus: there is a 350 watt fan included; It will do the inflating job faster than displays equipped with a 250 watt fan.
Now you just need a projector. Considering the size of the screen, I highly recommend going for a 4K model, assuming it fits your budget. This will ensure you get a razor sharp image even at full size.
One of the most affordable options right now: the
ViewSonic PX701-4K, which sells for $ 900. It can work indoors and outdoors, of course, and it has a powered USB port for plugging in, say, a Chromecast or Fire TV streaming stick.
$ 900 on Amazon
