After reading about everyones success with blackout fabric/lining I decided to go hunting. The fabric found at Joannes sounds nice, but the width was way to small for my purposes. I want the biggest screen I can get. Going to my local Hoffmans I found "Roc-lon Blackout Drapery Liners" They can are purchased in folded panels, so I'll have to find away to get the wrinkles out. But the beauty is that you can get them in a single panel size of 104" x 80" This allows me to get a size closer to what I wanted.
I plan on using black felt to frame the remaning wall around the screen. And then using light weight metal covered in felt for masking of widescreen material. Magnets will be mounted behind the screen for the masking panels to stick to.
Anyway thought I'd comment on the find (about 70 dollars) for those of us with 4x3 projectors.
