Some amazing screening rooms people have. Our climate here is Australia lends itself to an outdoor setting, I have set up our motorised 4.2m screen in our courtyard shooting from my studio/bio. I can run Super8, dirty digital, 16 and 35. On screen a little digital "Raiders" for my fencing club just before Christmas.

Hey, atypical user here. College kid, living with my parents- just learned I'm addicted to film projection recently. My screening room is, well, my room. XD Thought I'd throw a little 'shabby' into the mix here. XD My screening room is, well, my room. I use my wall as a screen, and my stand's a side table on a footstool. My projector's a, far as I can tell, 'new' Sankyo Dualux 2000H. Found the projector in my grandparents' closet cleaning it out, with a 1982 receipt and all the packing materials. Hope to get a better setup soon, but figure I'll share for the sake of a little perspective.

Oh no Bill, you are wrong, in my case it was using far more humble equipment than this! [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Wink]

A Toy Casdon Standard 8mm Silent projector for my 6th Christmas
complete with 2 B/W silent 50ft excerpts. A whooping 6v lamp and 200ft reel capacity!!

ha ha...

That is a nice projector to start with but I was talking about equipment handed down and having the wall as a screen. Everyone starts somewhere.

Hi Andrew

I remember that projector in Kay's catalogue many years ago - always wanted one!

My first was a hand cranked that used b/w silent Disney clips...bought from a catalogue about 1971...it projected a weak picture but was fun. I would say the clips where about 25ft long..back in the day for my family most things were bought on weekly payments from catalogues like Empire Stores or Kays's.. [Wink]

Yep, that's how it was is our house circa 1976 Mark.
Dad was a printer and keen member of Sogat. Mum stayed at home bringing my Siser and I up and paying for an entire Christmas, including the food and booze hamper over 38wks!! Ha ha

Now who remembers Cherry Bs, Babycham and Egg Filp at Christmas in that era. [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

My screening room is really just my bedroom...or living room..or wherever there is enough room to put up the screen, but I did finally get around to (somewhat) organizing my fledgling film collection.

Fabulous John, and looks a lot like my own arrangement for my films! [Big Grin]

It doesn't matter one jot how you enjoy em, just so long as you do! [Wink] [Razz]

That's still a nice sized collection BTW in my book.

Hey Doug, thank you. Yes Andrew, that Bauer is quiet, but it's a lot of fun behind the wall, looking through a viewhole.

Hello! Well, on a very tight budget, I managed to turn our unused basement into my new home theatre (/kid's playroom)! Initially sold the idea as a playroom for the kids, then it just kind of quickly evolved. Couldn't drywall myself (I can hardly operate a screwdriver), but did the best I could with the space on a tight budget. Mounted a pull-down scope screen with a regular screen in front of it (my wife hasn't noticed the scope screen yet).

I've posted pics on my facebook page if anyone is interested:

The kids love the new playroom, and Dad loves his new theatre!

Michael, we can't see your FB photos unless you friend us all, and would love it if you'd just put even one here.

Sorry, I thought I'd set that portion of facebook open to all.

My 3 year old and I took a break in the middle of the re-decorating process to watch a film...

 -

Finished!

 -

 -

My wife didn't want a screen showing at all times, so I went with ceiling-mounted pull-downs....

Small screen

 -

Mounted just behind the small screen is the scope screen

Very excited to get this project done! Sorry if this is too many photos!

Nice job Michael!

Too many photographs?...Impossible, no matter how many.

Everyone here loves to see all the photographs that are shared here, I know I certainly do anyhow!
