50' HDMI can definitely be problematic. But 30-35' can also be problematic. Redmere cables would be the cheapest solution that will have the best chance of working, but I wouldn't run them by themselves (also, they're directional so make sure they're installed the RIGHT WAY). They have active components (chips) that could fail, so you want a backup plan in that case. A minimum of 2-3 cat6 cables to the PJ along with the HDMI cable will give you that backup, plus support for Ethernet and other control potentials.
In addition, the best answer for future-proofing is a conduit run from your projector location to your AV stack, so that you can run whatever is needed in the future. Don't forget a power outlet at the PJ location, too!
