Hi all!

Im a 4th year arch. student who is designing a cinema within an existing historic structure.

i want to form an outdoor area which could be used as a cinema sometimes ( spring and summer). right now, the grassy knoll which will hold the audience faces a glass wall looking into the theater proper. the pricture is projected onto the glass wall. here, i have two choices.

1) the wall is built of electrified glass. on command, it can change from transparent to translucent. ( for this project, cost is not an issue )

2) a standard screen can be lowered ( or raised ) behind or in front of the glass wall.

which idea has the best possibility for success?

thanks!

Since you probably want the projector INSIDE the theatre, you will be using rear-screen projection. Reflect the projection beam through an optical-quality front surface mirror (to reverse the image) and onto a rear projection (translucent) screen material at the plane of the window.
