Also, thanks to Chris Smith’s donation of five-minute one-reel educational short “Families”, I was able to verify that the projector does, in fact, still work after its 18-month hiatus, and that it still is noisy as hell, and it still makes that awesome hot-grease elevator-shaft smell.
All in all, it’s about 75 pounds of stuff not counting the heavy wooden tripod. That’s about 74 pounds and 15 ounces more than a Netflix DVD. “The Guerilla Drive-In: Making Movies Inconvenient Again!”
