The Panasonic ptar100u can do 2000 lumens in a fairly well calibrated preset according to, not sure how the overall picture looks but gave it a decent rating. Don't expect a ton of contrast, but it does have an IRIS and doesn't do too bad in black levels.

At only $1500, that is probably the one I would try first if you really want the ridiculously bright 200" screen beyond what other projectors can do, and then you can just return it if it didn't look good enough.

A crossover DLP with a 3x CW would work too, some of them can do over 2500 lumens even in somewhat calibrated modes, but for many it will be rainbow city and the blacks will be bad.
