A drive-in movie for the backyard

24-foot inflatable screen on eBay

eBay

As much as we love bleeding-edge media technologies, Crave occasionally still pines for certain forms of entertainment from yesteryear . And few things make us more nostalgic than the drive-in movie.

Now you can do your part to revive this nearly extinct phenomenon in the privacy of your own backyard with a 24-foot inflatable screen for sale on eBay. This monster system from VXP, which includes a projector, speakers, DVD player and other various equipment, has a "Buy It Now" price of $14,995 on the auction, which ends Saturday. (Don't worry, the listing indicates that two are available.)

It should also be noted that this is VXP's economy model, but the company assures us that it's made with the same care and quality as its 30-foot "pro" screens. Either one may seem a bit steep, but when you compare them with David Carnoy's $99,995 home-theater projector, they're a bargain.
