Container Mounted Stretch Projection Screen
Mounting onto rental shipping containers is a worry-free way to achieve a true-to-life, 1950’s size drive-in movie screen! Container rentals are far cheaper to rent than box truss systems and are ideal for wind blocking. These screens mount onto the front face of a shipping container in various ways, including self-tapping screws or through-drilling eye-hooks. Once installed, the screen will stretch to perfection, and all wrinkles will disappear!

Truss Mounted Stretch Projection Screen
If you’re an AV company that owns box truss systems or have a good source for a rental, then a truss mounted drive-in movie screen is the choice for you. Our screens work with your truss systems in a variety of innovative ways.
- Truss Lift Structure – The first example uses two 26’ truss lifts, a 40’ span of truss on top, a 42′ span of truss on the bottom, and is ballasted with cement blocks. This method will allow weekend theaters to easily strike the fabric screen for weekday storage. To mount the screen, start with the truss down. Hook the Stretch Projection Screen to the top line truss with 50lb tested zip ties or tie-line. Next, raise the truss to 24’. To complete the installation, the fabric is tensioned to the bottom truss goal post. The result is an impressive and quick structure that fits a 37’ x 19’4” Vertispan Stretch Projection Screen that fits a 30’ x 16’10” 16:9 image.
Screen Price: $2,045
- Truss Surround Structure – The third, fourth, and fifth examples use truss all the way around and outrigger legs with speed rails for support. These three screens do not show ballasting, however, it is, of course, recommended. Once the truss system is set up, the screen is connected to the truss with 50lb tested zip ties or tie line. Use a boom or scissor lift when you hang the top of the fabric, followed by the bottom and then the sides.
