Want to recreate the drive-in movie theater in your backyard? It’s surprisingly simple and, for a limited time, more affordable than ever. All you need is a projector, one that can produce a clear, sharp image and robust sound. And when it’s ready to stream from your favorite services, all the better.

Here’s the deal: Right now you can get the Xgimi Halo 1080p portable projector for $636.65, the lowest price in over a year (and very close to the lowest ever). It normally costs $799. What’s more, if you add the Xgimi Streaming Dongle to your cart, you can get that item for free by applying a promo code XGIMIYahoo at the cash register. (In reality, you’ll save a total of $100, but the discount will be split between both devices.)

The Halo is a native 1080p projector. While it can’t quite compete with a 4K model (which would cost you significantly more), it can deliver crisp, colorful video that’s perfect for a family movie night – not to mention console gaming. All you need is a blank wall or screen.

Particularly impressive is the Halo with a brightness of 800 ANSI lumens. That’s 3-4 times what you get from cheaper projectors, and it makes a huge difference: you don’t need a pitch dark environment to enjoy a sufficiently bright image.

The Halo also features automatic focus and keystone correction, meaning you should be able to point the projector at your wall or screen and start watching almost immediately, without a lot of manual adjustments. However, only the vertical keystone is automatically corrected; you may need to adjust the horizontal settings yourself, but this only requires a few clicks of the remote in the settings menu.

So is this really a cinema in a box? In many ways, yes: it has a Harmon Kardon speaker system that gets pretty loud and sounds pretty good, and it comes with built-in Android TV. The latter offers access to almost every popular streaming app, so all you need to do is log into your various accounts.

Now for the bad news: Xgimi’s version of Android TV doesn’t support Netflix. (Don’t ask; long story.) You can get Hulu, HBO, Disney, and many others, just not Netflix. But this is where the free Xgimi Streaming Dongle comes in: it brings Netflix to the party, so if you want to watch Stranger Things of Ozark, just hook that little guy up. You can also connect a Fire TV Stick or Roku device if you prefer; there is an HDMI port for something like that or a game console.

Another minor gripe: the battery should get you through a single 2-hour movie, but not much more than that. To charge it, you need an outlet; you can’t just plug in a USB power bank or something like that.

I haven’t had a chance to test the Halo yet, but it has a solid 4.4-star average rating from over 500 Amazon customers. In addition, I have reviewed the Xgimi Elfin projector and found it to be excellent overall.

You only have a few days left to take advantage of this discounted price and free streaming dongle option. Grab it while you can!
