Automated Curtain system

Can anyone suggest a good place to find a large curtain to close off part of a room, and where a quality automated railing system can be purchased?

Any sound qualities for the curtain would be a bonus, but it is mostly aesthetic to make the theater area more dedicated. Below is an idea of what I'm looking to do:

Curtain Open:



Curtain closed for movies:




The curtain would probably need to be at least 14" wide to cover the area, and about 8' tall.

Thanks

I've been working on something similar, except mine would be used to cover up a 10ft x 8ft window that the screen comes down in front of. Anyways, I found an AWESOME guy on Etsy, I highly recommend him for his custom work and pricing... As for the rod, I'm going with the powercurtain rod that just came out...

Here's the links:

beyond,

Did you get these installed? How did you adapt the rod-pocket curtains to the power curtain track?

For home theater application I would recommend the BTX systems out there. They are heavy duty as they can handle weight of large drapes usually used. The imports out there in the lower price ranges on automated tracks generally can't pull the weight.
