[QUOTE=Wismajorvik;2988435]Recollect on the Mobil Radiant we had a screen above the catwalk aft of the midships accommodation. Projector was set up in the smoke room and pointed through a port hole. This allowed all the crew to view a movie.[/QUOTEW

Had a similar situation when in Kandla,India on the Sugar Importer. The a/c wasn't up to much so we moved the projector and screen onto the boat deck and "watched away"
The film was well attended by practically the entire crew plus a second audience of Indians who appeared out of the gloom to watch.
They were so quiet and well behaved we never noticed that they were there untill the end when they melted away as quietly as they arrived!
