Backyard movies? Now?


Backyard Movies Made Easy

Backyard movies?  In January? Its never to early to think about warmer weather here! Who doesn’t enjoy a get together with great friends, food and of course a movie! But Morgen, its January…. okay okay okay…. Yes, i know its January and most of the country is still freezing and even getting new layers of that pesky white stuff…. But there is a reason i prefer the West Coast now over my roots in the Midwest 🙂 There is a whole lot less of that stuff – and when we do get snow, my daughter gets to play in it for a day and then it melts away and we go back to being Evergreen 🙂

Is it still snowing where you live?  Are you done dreaming of snow and ready for warmer weather and being outdoors without ten layers on? Its not snowing in Washington State, but the grey rainy days make us dream of spring and summer and being dry outdoors again every day….

Have you been to Washington?  Those rainy days can last well into June here, so as soon as its dry and even partly sunny, we are opening up all the doors and windows for fresh air and grabbing our outdoor gear to hit the road.  We go to the beach, we go hiking, we go camping and of course, we watch movies!  One of us sets up our portable projectoscreen and stand and projector and the other gets the snacks and the family enjoys every minute. And you should too!  Just remember when the day is done, to make sure you look up at those stars and admire the beauty of this universe.

Ok, you convinced me…

Check out these bundles and be ready for when the mercury rises. Or hey, maybe you like watching movies in the snow? 🙂 no judgments here, just projectoscreens and backyard movie fun.

Come and check out our line up of portable projectoscreens and projectors and stand to make movie nights in your backyard the talk of the neighborhood. … and if the cold is still not your thing, the whole bundle can be set up indoors until things thaw out 🙂

until next time – Morgen

Vapex Fixed Frame Screens Named to Sound and Visions’ “2016 Top Picks Of the Year” List

Vapex fixed frame screens wins award from Sound&Vision"Top Pick" award from Sound and VisionOur Vapex professional-grade Fixed Frame screens were named to Sound and Visions’ “2016 Top Picks Of the Year” List for value and we couldn’t be prouder.  Not that we’re surprised, our Vapex line of screens have been highly rated by customers and review sites alike.

Here’s an overview of Sound&Vision’s VAPEX Fixed Frame Screens review:

$219 as reviewed


Highly affordable
Good uniformity
Quality construction
Time-consuming to assemble


The VApex PRO is a great option for anyone looking to put together a home theater on a budget without cutting corners.

DIY-ers setting up a home theater may be inclined to cut corners on the screen, instead choosing to use a white wall, screen paint, or even the above-mentioned bedsheet as a projection surface (the horror!). It’s these folks who would benefit the most from buying a VApex PRO. Not only does this entry-level fixed-frame model offer quality construction, but assembling it is easy (if time-consuming), and video performance is spot-on. And with such a screen priced under $250, you’d be crazy not to buy one.

Here’s something more to chew on: When a 110-inch VApex PRO is paired with a late-generation entry-level projector, such as the Optoma HD142X (watch for our review) or the InFocus ScreenPlay SP1080, the total package works out to just around $800. I’m sure that such a combination will make a budget-minded DIY-er happy, and not just because they saved lots of money – though that certainly never hurts.

92-inch VAPEX in Townhouse
“Absolutely love the 92-inch VAPEX screen in my townhouse, which I rented. this was the perfect solution as a renter; my townhouse was often used a Demo for visitors who were considering moving to the complex. The projector was a Panasonic PT AE400u coupled with the VAPEX screen which yielded an outstanding picture even in low level light.”

Our photo contest has ended, but the great value on our portable screens remains. Check out our ProjectoScreen line of portable projector screens!
