I am looking a some fairly large screens for my home theater, however the prices range wildly even within the same brand. Can anyone tell me what justifies the huge cost increase here?

This screen from Elite Screens costs $2197 and is 65" x 152.8"

This screen from Elite Screens costs $659 and is 69" x 162"
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/963604-REG/elite_screens_er176wh1_wide_sable235_fixed_frame_projection.html

So the second one is one larger but one third of the price, the same brand, they are both CineWhite. What makes the first one cost so much more?

The expensive one is a curved screen..

I am not familiar with cured screens. What does that mean? What are the advantages?

EDIT: Sorry I read that wrong. I understand about curved.
