Masking at PJ or on wall should help hide the "black" (really more dark gray) bars. You can use black felt, flat black paint, or black poster cards (search digital PJ section for "VMS" or Virtual Masking System with pics for details on masking at PJ instead of wall).
Other option is kinda expensive but an anamorphic lens will turn your 4:3 PJ into a 16:9 PJ and thus no bars.
