Hey there!

I am looking for a cheap projection material to do a REAR projection in our third stall. It is a standard single stall garage door. I am in MN, so between weather and a street light, have decided to do rear projection. I have a business class Epson that will work great and plan on doing the AtmosFX pumpkins (without real pumpkins). I have sound sorted out too - but am not sure a good cheap way to do the screen.

Thanks!

If you do a search you will find many options with chiffon being the best if you would like to see through and still project an image. I use a cheap white shower curtain for most of my projections. I did use chiffon in a doorway once when I wanted people to see my foyer and create a ghost effect.

Thanks. My biggest obstacle will be the sheer size needed. I will measure tonight, but I think it is something like 8x9 feet..

I'm a big fan of the $1 plastic tablecloth, in gray/silver. For rear projection (not "hollusion") I've found these to work the best. They hide any "hotspot" from the projector light very well, while still allowing a clear image. Two of them should cover a single garage door, if it's not too tall.
