This is probably projector screen 101 here, but I have searched and cannot find an answer. My question is:

I just purchased a 92" Elite Screens screen. I am attempting to mount it, but am unsure of the best way to do so. If I can a stud in the wall to hang one side of the screen from, what are the odds that there will magically be another stud on the other side of the screen to screw in to? I'm guessing the odds are not good.

So, how is it done, typically? Should I look into hanging from the ceiling? Is there an easier way to do this?

Thanks smile.gif
