Remodeling home - screen and setup decisions
I have been reading and reading and would be grateful for any help on making some decisions. I am remodeling my home and planning to put in a theater setup in the main room. It's a small place with an open floor plan but since I've never liked televisions, I'd like to incorporate a projection setup. The screen would be mechanical and it would come down in front of a window. The maximum screen width is 10' and I'd like to keep it about there. Ideally, the projector would be located all the way in the back of the room but that would be 24' - it can be placed closer if necessary. Viewers will be about 14' away. The walls will probably be a lighter color and it may be difficult although not impossible to completely eliminate light because there are lots of windows (although most windows are on the same wall as the screen). Ceiling is 8' high. Primary use will be for movies. As far as the budget, it would be great to get the projector and screen for under $6k but it's negotiable
I appreciate any input you may have on the situation in general, projectors, or screens. Although the screen is the most urgent decision since it has to be built in before the ceiling is closed.
Many thanks for reading and for the help.
