Screens > DIY pull down screen ?

All of the DIY screens I read about here are the "pull black out fabric around wood frame" types. Has anyone tried to install the fabric on a roller and pull it down for use? Is it possible to do this and not have wrinkles? Will it be hard to keep it flat?

I'm interested in responses to this as well, so......

Well, I don't have experience with this, but a window shade does not have wrinkles. Paint would be out, but if you could find a fabric of the appropriate color, or find a fabric stain, this might work. I think the biggest issue would be finding a shade large enough.

Interestingly enough.. Draper makes window shades. Go figure. interestingly enough.. some of them are acoustically transparent. Go figure. Icebergs have very small tips.
