    Default Projector screen recommendations please

    Wonderfully, my wife has suggested painting the 'cinema room' dark blue, which creates a need for a proper projector screen. TBH I've been happy throwing the image onto the almost-flat beige wall, but I must seize the opportunity to acquire more stuff.

    I am likely to go for a ceiling mount with auto unfurl, or whatever it's called. I reckon 16:9 format. 250-300 quid mark

    Any recommendations please?

    +1 for the Ikea solution. They do a large black out type roller blind that works very well. The light grey version actually works better than the white version.

    Iíve got a friend who in the warm months sets out on the deck and projects against the side of his neighbors house! And we all tip a pint and pretend we are at the drive in theater.

    Many of the newer built neighborhoods, where the rather large houses are built so close together, it is quite common for these houses not to have any windows on the end facing the neighbors. So it works out for him, that whole end of a two story house has no windows. The neighbor doesnít even know itís happening. He is still careful to only show PG rated movies, in case some other neighbors kids can see it. Itís just a good excuse to party more than anything else!

    It is me Grant yes what an excellent memory you have!!!

    Sorry for the late reply, I expect I'm to late now but I've only just read through this thread.

    I bought my 82" electric screen years ago now and can't remember where from.
    Have you looked into a DIY fixed screen with black widow paint. It's supposed to be the best colour screen paint for projectors.
    Google it and you'll see a lot of discussion about it. Especially on AV forums.
