Home theater projectors have become very popular since they can display a huge screen on a wall or most any flat surface.
This means there is no need to have a huge TV to get a theater experience while at home.
They are also very portable devices able to be setup most anywhere as long as there is a flat surface to project on to.
For example, one can be setup in a backyard as easy as they can in a living room.
There are many units available from ones that display from a laptop or smartphone, to standalone units with the Android Operating system built-in.
Combining a media player such as Kodi with a projector can make for an incredible movie viewing experience much like the old drive in theaters once had.
Units that have the Android OS built-in are able to run Kodi or other streaming sources such as YouTube or Netflix with no other input source needed.
There are also many units that use an external source such as a laptop and project.
Which type to use will no doubt depend on a home setup and is a personal preference.
With that in mind below is some of our favorite options.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
