Hello everyone,
I'm a newbie to this forum and was looking for some advise on selecting a 120" diagonal fixed framed AT projector screen. My home theater room will be approximately 21'(L) x 15'(W) when finished and I will be placing my LCR speakers behind the screen. I will have more questions as this project unfolds.

Thanks!!

Your main choices are perforated vs woven....many manufacturers to choose from, from Elite to Stewart. Personally I like woven screens (no eq necessary, no moire risk), but they tend to be low gain and need a darker room with a brighter projector.

Buy the material here: http://www.seymourav.com and build a frame. Love my Center Stage XD screen fabric.

Let's worry about building your room first. There are several vendors to buy a screen from and as pointed out if monetarily challenged you can buy fabric and mount it on a DIY frame.

Show us what you've got.

Listen to what Big said! If you are shopping for screens before your room is even built, you might be in for a rude awakening.

I'm looking at Jamestown screens for my room. Very good pricing and they will use the Seymour AV material.
