Home theatre projector

I don’t know about you, but the impending arrival of summer has me excited to go outdoors and stay outdoors. And while sunny summer days get a lot of the glory, summer evenings are special too, bringing comfortably warm air, crickets chirping, and clear, star-filled skies. Why then, would you want to go indoors to watch television when you could be outside watching television? With the BenQ MH535A home theatre projector, this dream could be a reality.

New projector, classic entertainment

Next door to my childhood home lives a family with a tradition I particularly like: every summer the children’s birthday parties end with an outdoor movie. Gaggles of giddy, cake-fueled kids all gather together and hush their voices as they watch a film play across a white bed sheet. From across the street you can see the movie playing in the dim twilight, illuminating the little faces gazing at it. It’s a simple scene, but you can sense that precious memories are beginning to crystallize.

I love how it brought the past into today. There was a time when you would have to go to the drive-in or lug a cumbersome machine outside to make this happen. Now, with projectors you can make your yard like a drive-in theatre and create that connection and novelty that’s sometimes missing from the modern movie-watching experience.

With a projector like the BenQ MH535A, the set up is simple and the joy is instant. It has adjustable feet, so it could be placed on a backyard table without worrying about wobble.  It also has different viewing modes, including one for non-white walls, so if all you have is a pink sheet handy, well, that’ll work just fine.  And with 3600 lumens that improve colour vibrancy, your movie will look just as good under the stars as it does in your basement.

A BenQ MH535A projector brings modern magic to movie night 

Imagine the romantic date night you could have or how much fun it would be to watch sports with friends from the comfort of your backyard. It has a 1080p resolution, 15,000:1 high native contrast, plus input options like a dual HDMI and VGA so you can connect most media players, PCs, and Macs. But don’t just take my word for it, have a read of Jacob McCourt’s review:
