Simply use a burnt out projector and a Work Light from Home Depot and bring the theater home!
The OEM replacement bulb for my projector cost $300 (!) , more than what I paid for the projector it self. Also, my power supply that powered the original bulb was almost toast. Using this guide, you can use a Halogen Work Light bulb for about $10 dollars.

This project is a redo of my Automotive Head Light Projector Mod
WARNING: This mod involves modification of a projector, electrical wires, switches and a high power bulb. If you are not comfortable with modding on this level, DO NOT attempt this mod. The writer is not responsible for any injuries or damages resulting from these instructions.
Step 1: Obtaining the Work Light
In their Electrical Section you will find a small ~$10 250 Watt Halogen Work Light
Make sure that the bulb is 3.15 inches NOT a 4.69 inch or it may not fit.
You will want to measure the space that you have in your projector before going to the store.
You can get 3.15 inch bulbs that go from 75 to 400 watts in 3.15 inch. However, remember that even though more watts means more lumens, it also means more heat.
(We don't want to melt the projector or start a fire)
Once you have found the bulb that will fit your projector, Buy it and continue to step 2. ------->
