I can remember going to the drive in theater when I was young and thinking it was weird. I much preferred the regular theater where I could see and hear better than at the drive in. I do like the idea of being able to watch a movie anywhere your truck might take you though and that’s exactly what the Hitch Theater is all about.
This clever invention is a movie screen that attaches to the trailer hitch of your truck and a projector stand that puts the projector on the roof of your ride. Then you lay in the bed of the truck and watch the movie. You can also reverse that screen, face it away from the truck, place the projector stand in the dirt, and watch the flick that way with a group.
Clearly, you will need a projector, a video source, and a way to get electricity like a generator for this to work.
The project is on Kickstarter right now, where a pledge of $330 is all you need to get both the screen and the projector stand. It’s not a bad deal at all, but sadly the project has a rather exorbitant fundraising goal of $220,000. It’s not even close to reaching that amount so it probably won’t be funded with only 15 days to go. Still, I really dig the idea of this though and it could make camping trips much more fun. Who wouldn’t want to watch “Friday the 13th” while sitting next to a dark and spooky lake?
