Every summer, our family looks forward to going to the free outdoor movie theater a mall in our town host. It is so much fun! The movie is free and there are vendors set up that sell everything from homemade kettle corn to homemade cream soda. It’s an event we look forward to going to every week. The one draw back, we usually don’t get home until 11:00 and sometimes we just aren’t up for a late night.
I was recently told about the Epson MovieMate 60 Portable Projector. If you are looking for an outdoor or indoor home theater experience, this sounds like the perfect item to think about purchasing. Right now, Amazon has it priced at $584.99, down from the original price of $699.
I’ve read through the reviews on Amazon and this sounds like one winner of a product. People are very pleased with the portability, the sound, the picture quality and just the overall features of the Epson MovieMate. Speaking of features, here they are:
