Dive-in Theater The owners of this cabana wanted to be able to float around the pool and watch football. So inside the 20-by-25-foot gazebo they put a 92-inch Severston motorized screen, a well-protected Epson projector, four in-ceiling speakers, and planted five more rock-shaped ones around the pool.
