I bought this screen from an estate sale a few years back and the person didn't know if it was Classis Cinema White or Bright White. How can you tell which is which?

I love my 136" 2.35:1 Carada Criterion Brilliant White screen. Sad to see they closed. Anyone have their site archived? I'd like to get a PDF of the product, support and install pages for my screen...

Hi, need help, I am removing my Carada screen which I installed about 8 years ago. I don't want to damage it and haven't been able to remove it easily. Should I just push down hard on the lower bar of the frame until in unclips from it? Thanks.

If memory serves, you would push up, not down .. and, it's really best to have two folks, one on each end ..

The lower clip looks like this:


I admit I didn't install mine very tight, but to get mine off I pulled down from the bottom middle of the frame then pulled out just a tad. Then my wife and I lifted it up and off the top mounting bracket. Good luck!

My frame comes off when I lift it up. Easy as pie.

Mine has the bottom bracket, its a simple "pull down, then out, then up." Screen is off.

Bummer that Carada Flopped! I loved their CS...I had a custom 2.40:1 115" BW screen made for me, about 4-5 years ago. I still use it in my current theater! I'm just wondering if going to a dark energy screen, or other ambient-rejecting screens would even benefit in my completely light-controlled theater. hmmm...But I do love the texture (or lack of texture) from the brilliant white material....very smooth, and pretty much was 4K ready, years ago imho.

If you have a " completely light-controlled theater ", a white screen with a gain of unity - 1.3 max is the way to go in my opinion. I think you are still good with your current screen.

Dammit, I love my fixed 16:9 screen, looking to get a 2.39:1 screen. So who else makes good value screens like Carada?

Anyone know the reason they closed shop? I thought they were selling well.

Evidently not selling as well as they would have liked as they closed shop and changed direction and purchased / opened a Bullhide gun belt store! I wish them the best as their screen manufacturing was superb at a very reasonable cost and customer service was absolutely second to none. I bought one of their very last manufactured screens last November and they custom made it to fit my (used) Carada Masquerade. They are definitely missed.
