Makeshift Home Theater

I am encouraged to 'use what I have' even if it isn't GRAND.  Our home has a long lasting will not die tube televsion.  No big flat screen here...plus here inTurkey electronics are 3x the price as they are in the States. So we are waiting that out. 

Meanwhile I wanted to have a bunch of the kids over from the neighborhood to watch a movie at our makeshift Home Theater. :)  So here are the pics on how we juiced it up to have a great time.

Now Playing
Toy Story #2
(in Turksih of course ;))

Our Ticket booth.
Made out of cardboard of course. :)

Cinema ticket
1 person
Time: 2:00 o'clock

Our ticket collector hard at work.

Lolipops and popcorn. 
I think this event cost me 7.00 lira (5.00 dollars) total.

I propped up the back seat with cushions so all could see,
 and totally rearranged my living room for good seating.
My kids and the rest had a riot and then we went to the park when it was finished. 

I think we may do this again especailly since we recently got a projector for our work.  It would be perfect.  So Toy Story #3 will be the next showing at our house...maybe on a rainy day.


Toy Story #2 now playing at an
apartment near you.;)



Well that's all for now.  Have a great weekend. :)  ~becky

Becki,
This is pure genius! I've just added this to my kids-off-track-and-bored list of projects. So, so cute!

Wonderful! You've made it so much more fun than just watching a video!!

What a great idea! We sometimes have 'home cinema' with a DVD, home made popcorn and the curtains closed! The kids love it as much as the cinema itself!

Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a great week!
