High in the hills overlooking downtown Los Angeles stands the iconic Griffith Observatory. The Observatory’s staff approached Elite Screens with a need of an outdoor projection screen that handles easy and could be stretched upon an improvised framework they made for an upcoming event. They chose a large 236” DIY Pro outdoor projection screen that would give thousands of stargazers a big picture of the Red Planet in all its glory. The orbits of Earth and Mars would bring both planets very close to one another by a distance of 35.8 million miles; pretty close in planetary terms.
The atmosphere was festive and legends like Buzz Aldrin addressed the crowd. Hundreds of enthusiasts thronged for a good view as the observatory’s main telescope fed its image through to a projector standing before the large DIY Pro 236” outdoor projection screen.
