Will this work?

Should I even consider a projector in this room, or is it pretty much pointless? Enclosing the room in is not an option. This is an upstairs bonus room, and as you can see it lets in quite a bit of light. Is it even worth trying?

It depends on what your goal is.

Are you planning to watch in daylight? Can you paint the room? Can you hang a black curtain over that half wall to block light while you are watching? Do you have kids and need to take night-time noise into consideration?

At it's most basic, you can certainly hang a projector and get he big screen feel (or if you can't remove the cieling fan get a 70" big screen). Get a good quality 5.1 setup and you might be compeletly happy with the results. Or not. Depends on your goals.

Post a little more info and you can get more help.

this room may be a candidate for the largest flat panel TV and quality headphones you can afford unless you can address the light and sound issues.

If you do most of your movie watching at night, the light issue will be moot. I'd always rather have a projector and screen setup - haven't been without one since 2002!

unless you can completely cover those windows, you'll always struggle in daylight hours.

Looks like light control will be impossible unless you frame in the room and put a door on it. Either a big TV or one of the ambient light rejecting screens (e.g. Seymour Screen Excellence Ambient Visionaire or Screen Innovations Black Diamond) with a PJ.
