Let's Go to the Movies

The other night we were thinking about how cool it would be to have a movie theater outside. A movie projected on the side of the house...

Well, that dream came true last night. Haha. Yes. We created our own movie theater outside.
Mike checked out a movie projector from the library. The librarian was a little suspicious about someone checking out a projector during the summer...because no one is on campus...but Mike came up with a genius ploy. He said he was using it to check slides for his upcoming class he is teaching :)

So, we got a white sheet, hung it on the side of the house, anchored it with some shoes full of pennies, hooked it up to the laptop, and some speakers, et voila! We had an outdoor movie theather complete with campfire. We ended up watching Road House, with Patrick Swayze...
If you're into watching really bad movies, I highly recommend this one.
