Hello, I’m looking to project from my back deck to the back of my property which is around 90 feet. Most home theatre systems can only project up to 20’ or typically less. Any ideas how this might be accomplished, or should I squash that dream and stick with something in the shorter range? I wanted to be able to watch some cinema from the comfort of the deck which is roughly 8-10’ off the ground.

Thanks

Not in the world of home theater. You would need an ultra long throw telephoto lens.

These are available, but the projectors and the lens can be in the range of $5,000.

To fit a more modest budget, you would need to rethink the setup a fair bit. Maybe consider a screen just on the edge of the porch and a projector inside pointed at it.
