Quikscreen vs. Inflatable Screens

Quikscreen vs. Inflatable Screens

Did  you do some shopping for an outdoor theater system before you finally struck gold by finding us? You probably saw a good number of companies promoting inflatable screens. You may have read tons of sales copy about how sensible, convenient and easy to use these screens are.

So why doesn't Outdoor Theater Systems sell them?

  • Well, unfortunately you cannot believe everything you read. Inflatable screens have indeed seen widespread use in outdoor theater systems for years now.  Easy and convenient they are not. If a sales rep tries to tell you that these things are as easy to blow up and tie down as a pup tent, do NOT believe them!
  • For one thing, you must run a generator-powered pump to inflate them.  Even then, you'd better not be in a big hurry to start the show. To add insult to injury, you must keep the generator running to keep the screen inflated during the movie! Can you say "distracting?"
  • When it is all over, do not count on relaxing anytime soon -- you still have to press all the air out of the screen and fold it all up for storage. Oh, and the slightest puncture or tear in the balloon, and you will have to buy a whole new screen. Still sounds like a great buy?
  • Here is an article to what Wikipedia has to say about inflatable screens: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inflatable_movie_screen

That's why we'd much rather suggest  our QuikScreen vs. Inflatable Screens instead. Forget about inflating or deflating anything -- the QuikScreen really lives up to its name.  Just put the preassembled aluminum frame in place, stick the screen onto the Velcro around the frame's perimeter, and secure everything as needed with the provided tie-down rings and straps. No noise, no muss, no fuss. Our systems setup in less than 10 minutes and take the equal amount of time to take the system down.  Do not let an inflatable screen deflate your enjoyable time -- go with a QuikScreen instead!

At Outdoor Theater Systems, we offer high-quality theater systems that provide extraordinary ways to enhance the excitement of any event.
