July 22, 2008 Movie nights are always a great way to have a good time with family and friends, and you could really "wow" them this summer by leading them through the house and outside to your personal open-air theater in the backyard. Open Air Cinema’s 9’ x 5’ CineBox Home Backyard Theater System features a nine-foot inflatable movie screen, a Sanyo 2300 Lumen DLP projector, DVD player and powerful outdoor speakers.

The 16:9 screen is made from ripstop nylon, weighs in at just 8 lbs, and fits into a duffle bag when deflated - allowing you to take it just about anywhere. Set-up is simple; you inflate the puncture-proof screen with the quiet air blower, plug in the CineBox, put in your movie and you’re ready for a big-screen night under the stars. With the cost of gas preventing many people from traveling to their favorite vacation destination this summer, a backyard home theater experience may bring the smiles back to young and old faces.
