236 INCHES?!?! Holy Hell, what projector are you using? I have no firsthand knowledge of Elite, but form what I understand, they are thought of pretty highly.

Using an Epson MovieMate. Will project up to 30'. I use it on a 19'x9' screen now. The backyard is like a drive-in during the summer.

Man... Makes me wonder what my Epson 8350 would do outside at full power... (just not enough to pull it down from the ceiling and actually try)

I have the very first Epson MovieMate 25. I've contemplated getting a newer model with a better lamp, HDMI inputs, and a host of other features, but this one still does great, has lens shift, and a separate powered sub which sounds surprising well. At home I can hook up to the pool sound system, but still usually use the built ins. It's been through hell, and still going strong.

Today only, Woot has the Camp Chef Super Outdoor/Indoor Movie Screen for $145. Not sure if it's a good price or not, but Woot's prices are usually decent and only $5 for shipping:

That is a good deal. I have the OS-144 (12 foot diagonal) as stated earlier in this thread (post #7) and really like it. I would recommend the Camp-Chef. I set it up in the house as much as outside.

As I also pointed out, if this one has the same removable back panel as the OS-144, then it is great for rear projection. This way nobody in front of the screen blocks the movie when moving around.

Thanks for sharing Doug.
