I bought this for an outdoor movie theater. It works beautifully and really makes an outstanding impression. Nice reflective screen gives really crisp picture. It comes in a very heavy professional box with rollers :). It requires a large clean area to set it up, because this screen is absolutely huge. Metal tubes are labeled with sticky labels with numbers (that peel off). One person simply can’t assemble it (I usually ignore this advice when I buy things requiring two people to build, but trust me, one person just can’t). It’s about 12 feet tall and 16 feet wide when assembled. Threading the pipes through the fabric screen sides seems simple, until you try to connect them under tension. Because the fabric is tight, you need two people, one to apply substantial tension pulling the pipes apart just enough to snap them together (without pinching and cutting the fabric…or your fingers). Two people needed to stand it up and put it in its support feet. Anchor ropes/ties and weights are needed to keep the wind from blowing it over while one person holds it up. Took one hour to assemble with two very focused people, so don’t have a backyard party and start the setup during the party. Not sure how it holds up in the rain. Kind of dread setting it up and having to do a rapid take-down due to rain or wind. Because of the difficulty in setup, I sadly can’t say I look forward to using it very often, but I do love it.
