I want to put a motorized 120" diagonal 16:9 screen between the two pillars pictured below. The pillars are 11 feet apart and the ceiling is 13 feet from pavers to drywall. Seating distance is 16 feet.

A 30" lead this should put the bottom of the screen somewhere around 3' off the ground and it should be 12 inches +/- off the side pillars. I'm wondering about the effects of a slight breeze in this application. If I hook a bungee cord or something similar to an eyelet in the pillar and attach it to the weight bar, Am I asking for problems? I understand I cant use it in heavy winds and I'd only consider its use on calm evenings but I'm wondering if this HUGE SAIL I'm hanging from the ceiling is just asking for problems.

Your thoughts?

Is that a glass enclosure? If so, I don't see why you couldn't use an electric screen there.

It would probably work just fine on calm nights.
