    Hey I'm sure this has probably been asked before (but I can't find it anywhere) What are your favorite projectors for DVD's & who's got 'em? Opinions?


    Thanks,

    Best Buy has a gaming projector that's 3000 lumens and projects an 8' image from a distance of only 5'. Good for restricted space.

    I bought one last year for 50 bucks at goodwill.com. Used projectors from grade schools show up there from timt to time. I used it for a stairs ghost projection.

    Can it also work for your vermin DVD?

    Too clarify, it does depend on application. 3000 Lumens or better if you wanted to project spiders on a roof (40 ft away and 20 ft giant spiders). 1000 lumens would be fine for say projecting on the floor from the ceiling 8 ft away.

    That was the original intent. I would never dream of projecting huge spiders on a roof or side of a building. That would give the game away. "Oh, look, big spiders . . . probably using a projector . . . neat." Big deal, right? I mean, sure, it could make for a nice visual, but, imagine doing it in a haunt, with little (and some not-so-little) creepy crawlies crawling all over the place, right near the patron's feet? Oh, the "eeks", and shrieks, and squeals! Music to our ears!

    What's funny is, until this came along, if you wanted to do something with "real, live bugs", you needed to use actual real live bugs . . . often in terrariums built into the wall. Now, you just need a projector! Life is good.

    So, that being the case, inside projector, just 1000 lumens . . . is the "used projectors from grade schools" doable?

    If a 1,000 lumens will work inside 8' away, it should be easier to find & cheaper! Thanks.
