1. Make the Screen as small as you need by first TEMPORARILY hanging the Speaker and measure your remaining space, subtracting the Trim (top & Bottom width).
2. You know...with those Ceiling Tiles you could recess the back end into a Cut-out in the Tile? Every inch you gain will be a inch not lost on the Vertical Screen size. I can see you hanging the Center Channel from supports above the Grid, and having the least amount of Speaker protruding.
3. Reconsider your Color Scheme. Behr SS made 2x darker (tint-wise) on the "Walls" and the Ceiling is Behr SS at 4x Darker (tint-wise). The ceiling is by far your biggest concern because you will be crowding it. You might also try adding a slight Blue cast to the SS as that pretties up that Color, but as long as you maintain a Flat sheen, it will still "fade away' when the lights go down / off.
As for your original question...absolutely...the 5010 is more than capable.
....however, to achieve a 140" diagonal image will require a minimum Throw Distance of 14' . The maximum screen size you can get at 11'-6" (...you don't want to stretch it...) is 120" diagonal
There is no getting around that.
