Winners of the Backyard Theater Photo Contest Announced

Backyard Theater Contest Winners

Although it was a close race, but in the end there were two clear winners in's Backyard Theater Contest. Both will receive a Cisco Flip Ultra HD camcorder. Ultimate Guys Night Out came in first with a whopping 225 votes.

The outdoor sports paradise features 8 HD projectors and screens, each showing a different live sporting event. Ultimate Guys Night Out is an annual fundraiser that started 8 years ago with an InFocus projector bought from Projector People.

Since then, organizers have donated close to $20,000 to various charities. Wake Up the Neighborhood came in second with 186 votes. The outdoor theater started humbly with just a homemade screen and a few speakers.

Since then, it has evolved in to a high-tech movie party that features a 2000-lumen Hitachi projector, a 16' x 9' screen and professional sound system.

'When I show an action movie you can hear so many things all around you that I sometimes catch myself looking behind me to see what the commotion is', said owner Dan Green.

All the entries were very impressive. If you didn't have time to vote or turn in your own backyard theater submission this time around, don't fret, will return with a new theater contest with more giveaways in the next few weeks. So stay tuned!
