Having your own private cinema

?% | 1

A friend of mine jobs as a tech worker for our university. Last week we discovered that we had access to a fat Sony beamer which we could hook up to the computers in the staff room.

Haul over a sofa, provide some cool beer and turn the beamer so it faces a large, white wall. Et voilą - instant private cinema!

As an added benefit our university was errected in the South of the city (read: the middle of nowhere) so no one takes offence when you're watching Starship Troopers at full volume at four o'clock in the morning.

Re: Having your own private cinema

That indeed sounds like fun :-)

As I sometimes have access to a beamer, too, I used to do this with some friends, in longer sessions of three or four movies. Actually about time to do this again, good idea :-)

If you want, send me your number and I can let you know whenever the Private Cinema opens again.

I'm maintaining a web page for a friend of mine who runs a rental service for disco equipment as a hobby, together with some of his friends. Every summer, they set up an open-air cinema just for themselves and some close friends...

Now this rocks. :)

That makes me a sa-a-a-a-a-ad Panda...

Gosh!
It is like my private fantasy coming true. I want to save your picture as my desktop!! If I own something like that, I'll be permanently cured of my midnight movie maddness... and possibly developed something worse :) .
