    I know, I know... (look at my original post above...).

    I was just continuing my little story of using it in a home - and possibly being able to turn the wall it was on to face outdoors...

    After all, anyone who is considering this for 'home use' won't care about another $0.5M or so to enable that feature to show off to their friends, right? :)

    A 34' + Speakers width diagonally measured spinning exterior wall...

    Yeah; for even more 'drama' I wouldn't spin it horizontally - I'd flip it vertically (it does have auto rotation, right?). :D:D:D

    And the outdoor speakers would be permanently mounted outdoors hidden in huge shrubs, so they are aesthetically pleasing, of course. ;)

    You grew up watching the "Thunderbirds" didn't you? ;)

    Nah, don't remember that one. (I 'grew up' a very long time ago when TV wasn't an option unless it was raining cats and dogs outside...). ;)

    Same here, it wasn't until I was older and bought my own TV that I got to watch all that fun stuff.

    Back then, without the TV, I had outdoor muscles and a tan, now I don't have the tan ;)

    Why. A projector of 4K resolution which can work with the theater's existing, many times superior sound system and existing screen would be way superior. Modern cinemas have superior screens and sound equipment, a digital projector which can display TV or Blu-Ray images is a better option.

    There are a lot of new theatres and rebuilds that want to shrink venue to fit more screens, so this is an opportunity to fulfull that for less money or less build cost.

    There are plenty of corporations that need something like this for their onside media presentations, and the more compact solution could be an advantage there too.

    Not withstanding @tilleroftheearth 's brilliant spinning exterior wall, this setup might be easy to breakdown for mobile use as well.

    It's just another solution, one that doesn't have the brightness limitations of front/rear projection.

    For those times when you absolutely have to have a drive-in movie night.

    Modern theatres cannot equal the visual 'feel' of the 70mm cinemas I enjoyed so long ago.

    Like I said of the LED TV here; it needs much, much more resolution...
