I found this movie screen ages ago at a surplus sale for $3.
And I hung it up in my house ages ago too.
And it has been in the background of many photos on this ‘ol blog.
Quick! Someone Where’s Waldo my blog and see how many times I have accidentally shown it!
No seriously don’t do that.
I am not even willing to do that.
Anywho, Mr. Wright thought it was too heavy to hang above the TV, so I just waited a few months until he forgot about it, then hung it above the TV.
I know it’s a little taboo to have a “TV” in front of the TV, but you have to trust me here.
We have a cool little 3M Pocket Projector that hooks up to our iPhones and iPad.
It works perfectly for showing home movies with the kids, and since we shoot most of our video with iPhone’s, it’s become a really fun way to watch family clips on it. The kids really get a kick out of seeing themselves on the big screen.
We can also stream clips from YouTube with the 3M projector. We can already stream YouTube with our Apple TV, but I must say, a movie that requires complete darkness just has more of that movie theater feel than a regular TV.
Sometimes I feel like it’s taking two tech steps back, but the kids sure think it’s more fun.
And if you know Mr. Wright and I well, you know the kids rule around here.
Except for when it comes to my ice cream.
Nobody dares mess with that.Pin It
