A good set up Chip. Where are you going to put the 16mm projectors? They take turn with the GS-1200?

Yes the 16mm projectors will fit where the GS does.

Chip, congratulations on getting thus far. You give new and happy meaning to the term "hobby!" I hope it will give you many years of enjoyment, and that someday we'll have an excuse to be in your corner of the country.

Wow, very nice, makes my few films in the sideboard, and the projector popped on top of that, and projecting on to the white chimney brest look a little simple.

Although fun.

Thats an amazing set up, and space to enjoy your films.

Best Mark.

The real deal just like a commercial cinema. I especially like the full play system. I hope to stop by to visit Chip in the next few months and see everything in operation. That would be a real treat.

This week the dimmer unit was properly installed. Thank you Alan, for the help.

And today I changed the masking on the original screen. New plywood was placed on top of the old, which preserved the original bigger formatting.

For those who have access to Lowe's or Home Depot. They will cut the wood for you if you have the measurements. It's free. Just ask. Since I do not own a table saw, it made all the difference in getting this done sooner.

Pictures below. 1/4" plywood a/c
Black artwork poster board for the matting under the screen to the floor. It hides the milk crates that hold the speakers.

Screen size has not been measured. But during the testing phases it was done using super 8 cinema scope. I explained this previously.

Along time ago in a very early computer class (Windows had not yet been released to the consumer) I learned word processing. The teacher said something about it that seemed very interesting. He used the term, "WYSIWYG." Which means...

W hat
Y ou
S ee
I s
W hat
Y ou
G et

(what you see is what you get)

And that is perfect for any of us looking to size up a new screen.

Throw a white light. Zoom out until you see what you like. If you can run both formats flat and scope, make sure to try both.

Measure the white frame.

Base your screen size and exterior masking on that.

And there you have it. A few minutes of time leads to many years of great picture!

Looks like 1970s wall paneling, all that missing is wall to wall orange or multicolor rug
