    Bob Vilia called. He started a show called College WoodMasters. It failed because only the Cheerleaders showed up. 😉

    The biggest cost is the thousands of dollars you have to sink into a decent HD projector. Not only that, the replacement bulbs aren't exactly cheap (talking about hundreds of dollars) and the run time on the bulb isn't that great either. Sensibly you would probably spend less money getting a 70" flat screen instead of the projector. You could even get 3D, and I think the color sharpness of an LED TV is superb compared to any projector. To each his own, at least it's a great way to get laid and a great conversation piece. I'm sure though it makes porn kind of awkward.

      A 70" flat screen is puny compared to a 10-to-12 foot diagonal projection image, although you better get something starting at 3000 lumens if you want a decent 3D image at that size.

    I got a couple of old high school projectors not high quality but still looks good. Wait for night and play it in the top of my pine trees for all my neighbors to watch with me. We averaged 17 people last weekend watching iron man 2 and fast five from my yard and some 20 people at the houses next to mine.

    Pretty sweet guys! My buddies and I have the projector screen set up as well and we love it. Never thought to do this shit though! Good work

    1- Those guys will never get back their security deposit
    2 – One of the most important things of a home theater is sound and these guys have crappy speakers and ZERO surround sound. FAIL on every level.
