Help for choosing the right screen fabric from seymourAV

I'm going to purchase a new screen in a 1: 2.35 format and diagonal size of 130 inches for my H.T room .
I am wondering what type of fabric do I have to use ?
I have a dedicated H.T room with totally control over the light. I use Epson projector model 9100 and the lens distance is 14 ft from the screen.(I can move it to 16-16.5 ft distance )
Today I am using a Carada screen 16X9 format and size of the 106-inch diagonal with a fabric Gain of 1.4.
I received from SEYMOURAV few fabric samples test . G.W fabric is very similar to what I am using today but when tested the Black Matinee type of fabric I was very impressed and I noticed big improvement in black level without losing any image information.
I never used a dark fabric and I am afraid that when the fabric will cover all of the screen area the result will be a very dark image
I know that the Matinee Black fabric is designed for rooms with a lot of light but ,as I mentioned at the beginning ,it is not the case for me.

I want to ask your opinion for using the Matinee black.
Do I expected to see a dark image?
Do I expected to see any problems with the colors triangle ?

Many thanks for your help
