My Stephenson project has a 4K post-production work flow, but the one digital effect in my trailer (the fangs growing) was rendered at 2K. Even on my 4K monitor it's tough to tell the difference. ...

Something to keep in mind - as long as you can place the projector back at at least 3X the screen height, there will be no need for a curved screen if you go the lens route.
