Construct a Frame from hand picked 1x3 Poplar, and lightly pull the Vinyl across and attach with Staples along the outside edge. The frame will need to be 102" x 60" on the "outside" to allow for a true 54" x 96" 110" screen area bordered with 3.25" Trim applied over the Frame /Staples.
A center Support might not be required if the materiel will pull out smooth with just a wee bit of tension. More important will be getting the assembly square and true, and supporting the Corners, be they Mitered (best) or Butt joined (...gettin' by...) with 12" on a side Triangles of a good grade 1/2 Plywood, attached to each corner "AFTER" you are assured it is square will take up most of any lateral tension a lightly pulled Screen will offer.
Will this Screen be hung directly against the Wall? If so, a Plywood extension dropping from the Top Cross member that then has a Commercially available "Hangman" French Cleat would work best. Applying a equally sized "Spacer" of Plywood on the Bottom Cross member will make the assembly hang Flat and not tilted.
