I would never place a screen above a fireplace. It places the screen just too high. I know many people do, but usually that is their only option.
On the other wall, I would not center the screen, as where the mirror is. But shifted to the right, leaving just enough room along that wall for the right speaker.
Surrounds are best being about 6 ft to their tops. But they can be lower if positioned so there is still a straight line of sight from the seating.
