What size is the screen ? How many seats ? Single row or multiple ? Generally, I wouldn't recommend a 120" for more than 4 seats in a single row and less than 11' viewing distance.

I think using large shelf-type brackets on the inside corners of an on-edge 1x3 frame would be very sturdy and twist-free.

If you don't like the LCD look, mainly screendoor effect, then the Panasonics are not going to satisfy you.

In a dark room, my RS1 was fine on a 122" screen and even with ambient light as long as...

There are all different shades of green. If it is a dark green and the ceiling is also a dark color, then the room should be fine at night. If by "green" you mean "seafoam", then it might as well...

I'd go with a full screening of Oblivion. Mediocre plot but stunning visually.

I wonder if alternating strips of damping material and LED rope lights behind a printed fabric could make acoustic panels that light up like that ?

Yes, your Denon has 3 HDMI outputs.

It isn't a matter of "better" screens allowing speakers to be behind them. Even very expensive non-AT screens won't allow that. On the other hand, as Ftoast...

Maybe it's just the photo, but it looks as light as your skin and like it has some sheen to it.

I would go brunette rather than blond if you are staying in the brown color range.

With a 16.5' total distance and the W1070 hung from a plain old shelf, you would still have 15' throw. That is not possible for a 120" screen. Minimum would be 140". However, there are wall mounts...

A 15' wide room with 2' set aside on each side leaves 11' for screen. That is enough width for a 150" screen in 16:9 format.
