Fast shipping! Easy to install

Great material, we put this up outside, can’t wait to use it!!

It is very easy to set up .

A must like , I bought this product for a birthday party and outside events.

Are there any poles or stand that can be buy to use outside?

I originally purchased this to use in my backyard. It worked great indoors. I tied off the 4 corners to use outdoors. With any amount of wind it would move. Others have mentioned building a frame which I'm sure is possible and would work. I opted to purchase this instead. Elite Screens Yard Master 2, 120 inch Outdoor Projector Screen with Stand 16:9, 8K 4K Ultra HD 3D Fast Folding Portable Movie Theater Cinema 120" Indoor Foldable Easy Snap Projection Screen, OMS120H2 I will still use the original one for indoor use but feel this one is better suited for the backyard.

Can anyone recommend a stand which can be used outside with this screen? Thanks

We don't use a stand. We have a 10 ft canopy that we attach ours to...works perfect

Just make sure it’s secured

Easy to setup works well outside

Great for outside

Works great

Worked out great for outside

This worked out great. The original plan was to hang it down from the upstairs windows, but then I realized the deck light fixture and exhaust fan outlet were in the way. So after spending $80 on pvc, I created a frame for the screen. Then the kids wanted to watch the movie with the woods in the background, so we ended up attaching the screen to the frame, and then attaching the frame to two trees, due to the night being a little windy. My advice is to make sure you know ahead of time exactly where the movie will and can be watched.…

Has anyone used this outside free hanging without a wall behind it? Can you see the picture well or no?” I want 2 hang it from the front of my Gazebo.

I've got it strung up in a PVC frame. Works fine without any backing. It is fairly light so will act like a flag in the wind if you just hang it from one side

How do you use the ropes ?

You can tie them down to piles or something. We use it outside in our fence sonwe out screws in permanently.

…Perfect for the back yard outside movie watching.

What color is the back of the screen? Also, has anyone used it outside? If so, how was the picture?

Color-white, I use it outside, great quality.

Any means to secure the screen while being used outside (light winds etc.)?

As Sellers, we cannot recommend any particular way of securing the screen against wind, unfortunately. However, if you get a closer look at the customers' reviews, you can get a hint of how you can protect the Projector against the breeze. But please, be extremely careful and take precautions. Hope this advice helped you. Wish you all the best and feel free to inquire more! PropVue.

how do you lock the screen from moving side to side?

Hi There! Thanks for your question! On the plain surface and with no wind distraction the screen should be standing still with no movements. However, if you use it outside, please, beware that wind is capable of blowing to the PVS fabric and affect the projector screen like a sail canvas. In this case, we strongly recommend to stand it against the solid wall or fence. It will help to prevent projector screen from falling. Another advise that we can give is to purchase ropes for the edges that can be dug or hanged to the surface and hold the edges still. And the last suggestion: the corner edges of the screen are quite wide, thus you can hang some weight like a backpack or sandbags on both of those sides. This trick was advised by some of our customers in the reviews, but we as a company cannot recommend such a way of the protection in the manual. Please, take precautions. Thanks again for asking and feel free to ask more! Ask the best, PropVue.

Fantastic Screen - HUGE!

We purchased this screen for an outside movie night. …The only negative to using this outside is that it acts almost like a large sail - if the wind hits it, the entire screen topples over.…

produces a good viewing area, easy to install

…I noticed a great improvement in viewing movies outside using thsi screen , it dos not get a crease nor wrinkle, once you have your hooks mounted set up of the screen should only take about 5 mintues, its advisabel to take it down and not let it out in the weather, if you want to use it inside of course you can leave it up permenantly. overall a very good product for a very good price

Hefty and Durable. Bigger than expected.

…It feels very hefty and was able to withstand the wind when I set it up outside.

Do the dimensions for the screen 1.25 x 109.25 x 63.63 in. include the black frame, so it would be total size? or that just the white?

Hi, Thank you for asking. Those measurements are outside to outside of the frame. The viewing area is 58 7/8" x 104 1/2"

An you put the center speaker behind this material ad hear it

Hi, thank you for asking. We recommend putting the speakers outside the border of the screen with this material. We recommend the STR-169120-WAB to place your speakers behind the screen material.

Great product - I bought two

…The felt around the outside sets it apart from other screens as you get a perfect rectangle for viewing.

Excellent quality for the Price

…The screen was easy to assemble and hang, the velvet sides are large which is a good thing for me, the HT3550 has a small light border around the outside and the velvet sides completely absorb the light so it's not visible at all.…

this is as good as anything on the market

Can led strip lights be installed on the back of the screen?If so,how?My installer says there will not be enough clearance from the wall to install it

Hi, Thank you for asking. We have seen people run LED strips around the outside of the screen material on the back of the frame. The strips do go under the mounting brackets and under the support bar when you do this. But there is room to run it this way.

Any experience hanging from the ceiling? in my setup i’ll need to hang it from the ceiling anyone had any luck? any bad experiences? thanks.

I hung mine up on the ceiling using a couple screw hooks and some chain. Very easy and makes it so I can take it in and out easily. I plan on trying some movies and games outside in the evenings over the summer. This screen is really nice and sturdy.

Can you watch this outside during the day time?

Hello Jasmine, Thank you for your inquiry. It will depend to some extent on your projector. If you have a high quality projector, it should work fine. Although it could still be washed out by the daylight. Thank you for your question! Joanna G.

A little flimsy but great for the price!

…We did use this projector screen under a tent outside, if it was windy you might want to go another route, or try putting some sand bags down on the legs.

What good is that brand-new projector if you’re using a second rate screen to view it on? We here at CinemaBlend are huge proponents of the saying ‘you’re only as good as your weakest link.’ Inviting your friends over to show off your new projector isn’t going to go well if you’re projecting it on to a cut rate surface. Luckily for you, we’ve got you covered with our favorite outdoor projector screens.
Depending on when you attended grade school, you may remember having “filmstrip day.” Students would be subjected to filmstrip after filmstrip, usually in the name of science. And you always knew it would be a filmstrip day when the teacher grabbed the rope at the top of the chalkboard and pulled down the telltale white projector screen. Today’s projection screens have come a long way from those squarish screens that usually were held together with transparent tape. The best projection screens offer the ability to not just show the projected image, but to enhance it. Newer screens will work in a darkened room or in one with some ambient light, too. At BestReviews, we pride ourselves on the detailed research we perform in each product category. Our goal is to provide readers with the trustworthy information they need to make a wise purchase. Because we never accept free samples from manufacturers, our selections and product reviews are free of bias. Please continue reading this shopping guide to understand how different projection screens work, and how you can pick the best one for your needs.
To find the best projector screen we started by buying the top 15 models on the market and tested them with our own eyes using our favorite games and movies. During our real-time testing, we paid special attention to features like color accuracy, gain, ease of installation and different surface materials.
