Thanks. Here is how I did it.
1.Hung Elite EZ Frame screen at the desired height.
2.Found a curtain rod that could expand to span my entire front wall of 139".
3.Test fit a curtain on the rod to see where the brackets would need to be mounted in order for the curtains to be flush with the ceiling which was my desired look.
4.Once I knew the bracket mounting position I installed all 3 brackets that came with the rod at the same height.
5.Hung all curtains on the rod. I used a 108" panel on the left of the screen and another on the right so that it would go exactly from the celing to the floor, I have 9 foot ceilings.
6.I purchased the shortest matching panels I could for above the screen knowing that I would be cutting them down anyway, these were 84".
7.At this point the entire front wall was concealed in curtains including the screen, the only thing not covered was the area below the 84" panels to the floor.
8.Next I cut the material away from the 84" panels leaving enough to tuck behind the screen. When I started I cut too much away on the far right, it actually does not go behind the screen but rests on top, you can't tell from ground level anyway.
9.Then I used the material I cut away from the top of the screen to tack beneath the screen to complete the effect. Since the cut away portions were the lower ends of curtains I just oriented these pieces as if they were curtains hanging, that is the hemmed part at the bottom of the curtain rests on the floor while the rest is tacked behind the screen.
It was a very tedious but easy job to do. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to add some theater ambiance for not a whole lot of money or effort.
