My theater room is about 10' wide. I've hacked up a homemade 92x52 screen using window blackout fabric. Currently the fabric is not stretched, it is just tacked on. I'm using a Kodak DP850 projector...450 lumens, 800x600...
When I'm watching brighter scenes the whole front of the room gets lit up. Could this be because:
a) the fabric is not stretched so is bouncing light all over the place?
b) the fabric, although great for a flat white screen, doesn't care where it sends reflected light? It does have a tight knitted texture.
c) the screen is just too big for the room?
d) I could only get approval for a medium taupe on the walls.
e) anything else you can come up with?
Suggestions? (besides get a real screen, because it's not in the budget for a while)
I don't expect the room to be pitch black, but nice and dark would be nicer.
