We all miss going to the movies. But right now, we’ll have to settle for the next best thing (which, by the way, is still pretty darn good): Movie night at home.

To create a magical theater right in your living room (or basement or bedroom or backyard), all you need is a projector. And we found a great one: The Yabar V2 Digital Projector is on sale for just $90, or an impressive $40 off with the on-page coupon at Amazon. That’s nearly 31 percent off, and the cheapest price this projector's ever been.

And it's got quite the fan base. This baby is so popular, it's earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 1,700 reviewers.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No worries. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Couldn't be easier to use

Originally priced at $130, the Yabar V2 Digital Projector is compact and a snap to use. Just connect the projector to your laptop to stream movies or TV shows. You can also plug in a Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV Stick or Chromecast. And don't let its compact size fool you — i t packs 5,500 lumens of brightness and Full HD resolution at 1080p. Speaking of size: The Yabar V2 Digital Projector can project images 15 feet high (180 inches).

"This projector is AMAZING!" said one very happy customer. "This works perfectly for me since I mainly wanted to watch shows/movies from Netflix and I already had a Chromecast....Images are bright and crisp! Volume can go high! Feels like the theater."

The Yabar V2 comes with two built-in stereo speakers for sharp audio, you're free to up your sound game and hook up an extra pair — or not. "The sound is great and I don’t even bother with external speakers." said another five-star reviewer. "But if you want more thumping bass, you can add a subwoofer..."

Use it outdoors. Use it indoors. It's up to you!

While the Yabar V2 Digital Projector is a given for outdoor movie nights, it’s also great for indoor movie nights (or days — the picture is that bright) when you want to go big.

"...The picture quality is excellent for something in this price point," raved a happy Amazon reviewer. "The tiny size makes it easy to pack up and move from room to room, or in my case outside. Its bright picture is crystal clear and the colors are vibrant!..."

Heck, you can even plug in a video game console like Xbox One, PS4 or Nintendo Switch for gameplay in a big way — no lag or latency either. "...Great sharp image projected very bright picture and amazing colors...," shared a satisfied shopper, "...I connected my PS4 and was amazed by the picture for such an inexpensive projector..."

At just $90 with on-page coupon (was $130), this Yabar V2 Digital Projector offers the ultimate movie night at home, and just might be your best purchase for spring. Now, who’s making the popcorn?
