honestly, not really. I think we're a lot closer to a 'cheap' version of a black diamond and extra bright projector. but even without, some care for room lighting and it's totally possible to watch a front projector in a room with 'comfortable' ambient lighting. I say comfortable, because I hate watching anything in a really bright room.
For now projectors are the only way to a large and reasonably priced picture. Over time that will change, I wonder how long it will take. I am guessing 5-7 more years and you will see most installations going flat panel except for very large, say 120 and over screens. And as others point out, the weight will need to come down and the price.
but beyond that personal viewing taste, I think 100" + rigid screens would be 'useless' because they simply could not be installed inside your average home. I had to unbox my 64" plasma to get it into my theatre room. maybe they'll come up with an 'ikea version' that you can assemble once you've brought it into your room in smaller pieces... haha. but as it stands now, getting a large OLED into my theatre seems about as likely as me parking my car in the living room
