Screws/bolts for fitting a screen to the ceiling?

Hi Folks,

I will be moving home soon and hanging my 92" projector screen to the ceiling and was wondering what is the best way to secure to joists (the screen is 7kg in weight).
I live in the uk and not sure what to buy to solve this.

Also, would securing this screen be ok fitted to 2 joists only without using extra timber fitted. I am a DIY noob


Huge thanks,

I hung a screen from my joist in my basement once. I screwed 2 J bolts into the joist' you have to use a hammer to turn them because it is to hard with the hand. Drill a smaller pilot hole first for all bolts' Then screwed in 2 eye bolts into top of screen frame. Then just lifted each end and place the eye bolt over the j bolt' the J bolts look like a J or meat hook. Very simple and strong. Also cheap. Not even $5 for the 4 bolts

To be honest I didn't plan on hanging it from the ceiling really but appreciate your reply and will keep it in mind as an option. Thanks
