As for framing a DIY screen you want straight wood that is going to stay straight, so that rules out 2x4 studs, my go to wood is the finger joined pine boards, same as the minimal wall. If you use mid span supports make sure they are set back from the front so they don't show a crease through the fabric.
What would be your screen frame material of choice if you wanted to build a screen that could be curved for use with an anamorphic lens, then lay flat again for when the lens was not in place for 16:9 content ? Not permanently curved, but curveable. Length of top and bottom rails 12' for a 5x12 curveable 2.4 screen.
