Supplies Needed

  • Hacksaw
  • (3) 1-1/4-inch PVC pipe, 10-foot each
  • (2) 1-1/4-inch PVC pipe elbows
  • (2) 1-1/4-inch PVC pipe T-joints
  • Scissors
  • 6 x 9-foot canvas drop cloth
  • Adhesive hook-and-loop tape
  • (2) U-channel posts
  • Hammer

Step-by-Step Directions

Follow these steps to assemble the pipe frame and attach the drop-cloth screen. You’ll need a partner to help secure the finished movie screen into the ground.

Step 1: Cut Pipes

Use a hacksaw to cut two 10-foot lengths of PVC pipe into two 7-foot and two 3-foot sections. Cut the remaining 10-foot PVC pipe in half; set aside.

Step 2: Assemble Frame

Attach a pipe elbow to each side of one 7-foot PVC pipe piece. Add a 5-foot pipe section to each elbow. Next, add a T-joint to each of the 5-foot sections.

We made this site as a resource for anyone looking to build themselves an outdoor theater. In this post I’ll teach you how to find the best outdoor screen possible. I’ve reviewed basically every brand out there and setup theaters for 10 people all the way up to 500 person theaters.

Step 3: Finish Frame

Complete the frame by adding the other 7-foot piece to the T-joints. You should now have a square frame where the screen will attach. Next, add a 3-foot PVC pipe section to the bottom of each T-joint.

Step 4: Attach Screen to Frame

For the screen, use scissors to cut a drop cloth into a 6x7-foot rectangle. Before attaching, you may need to steam or iron your cut drop cloth to remove wrinkles. Wrap one of the 6-foot sides around one 7-foot PVC pipe, with a few inches of overlap. We secured our screen with adhesive hook-and-loop tape; this way, you can break apart your movie screen for storage once the season ends. For a more permanent build, you could also sew the edges of your screen around the frame.

Step 5: Secure Screen into Ground

Drive U-channel posts into the ground 7 feet apart using a hammer. With a partner, lift up the screen and slide each 3-foot PVC piece onto U posts, twisting as needed to tighten.

Chris Hemsworth's Outdoor Dumbbell Circuit Is No Walk in the Park .
The 36-year-old actor shared part of the workout that keeps him in hammer-wielding Thor shape. In the new Instagram video, he appears shirtless on a soccer field, glistening with sweat and squatting over a pair of dumbbells. The actor starts by ripping through a set of bent-over rows, then transitions into suitcase deadlifts. He carries the weights to another pair of dumbbells a short distance away—which is an exercise on its own—then trades out the first pair and knocking out a set of curls to presses. Then he ditches the dumbbells and runs across the field, perhaps to greet a friendly quokka.
