Looking for a screen, need recommendations.

I am looking for a ~120" acoustically transparent, retractable screen. At this point, I am looking at the Epson Home Cinema 5030UBe projector. With the way I just arranged my HT speakers, it opened up room for a screen (see pics here New speaker placement, great improvement for HT )

My plan is to mount my TV to the wall, and have the screen come right down in front of it. I'll put the center channel on a stand just beneath it.

Also, I plan on going with a 16x9 screen, but the 2.4 x 1 screens seem interesting. What would happen when you are trying to watch a blu ray that is actually 16x9? Also, do the retractable screens lower more than just the size of the screen?

Thanks

Apparently, acoustically transparent retractable screens are not very common... The reason I want AT is my main speakers are bipolar, and I don't want to block the rear radiating sound... Even with the screen about 8 inches off the wall, it would block a lot of it.

OK, I am changing my mind about the transparent part. Also, I have decided 16x9 is right for me, no interest in 2.4. So, anyway, just looking for recommendation on a medium/good quality retractable screen or screen manufacture.

thanks again

I am having a real hard time finding reviews for screens. "Elite screens" are popular on amazon, but they are also entry level. What brand should I be looking for for a higher quality product?
