Just read up on the last 3-4 pages...

I had not heard that there was a new screen material until now. This is very exciting! My plan is to have my front row just at 9ft from the screen, so it's nice to know that there will be an option even better than the previous. I was already leaning towards just the HD material.

On the site I don't see pricing for DIY material for Horizon. Looking at the full screens prices, I'm guessing it's about twice as much per foot (EDIT: this may not be accurate since it looks like all of the screens have a $200 price diff, not just the 120" wide)? Seems worth it still.

Do those prices include grommets if needed?

If you have your heart set on the Horizon material you have to buy it with a Falcon frame, Rich isn't offering the horizon material up for DIY.

Hey guys, just got an Horizon Screen set-up last night and first impressions are very positive. Great frame and frame locking system, easy set-up and the picture looks like the pop of a non-AT screen from my 9ft seating distance.

With as nice of a weave as the Horizon material is, it almost IS like a non-at screen! Glad you are liking it so far.

Hope to have my horizon screen setup soon, I'm afraid I bit off more than I can chew with all the things I have going.

Curious if there are any plans for Falcon to offer a curved screen. I would be interested in a 2.35:1 AT screen with curve.

I'm in the same boat. I'm hoping for a 2.3x:1 curved AT offering.
