Projector screen - what & where to get?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am in the process of building my first "real" home theater - in that for the first time I'll have the HTPC to "project" (getting a projector, and converting basement into theater)
The area I have for a screen is (I think) appropriately sized, but I am having a very hard time sourcing even an "acceptable" screen.

I am trying to source a closable screen - roll down or anything in the like. What I find is either too narrow, or not tall enough. When the viewable screen is large enough, the enclosure is too wide.

See, my screen would need to be "bigger than" 46" tall x 70" wide. in "bigger than" I mean that I want to use 46x70 so I'd rather have larger material than that.
Now, the space I have to put the screen is 58" tall x 82" wide. I cannot have an 85.5 inch wide motorized screen, it simply just will not fit.

Where do people find their screens? Or materials to build their own?

The best I could find so far is some ebay seller who sells 72" wide "by the foot" (but I'd rather have 74 or 76")

I am almost starting to consider getting an Levolor roller shade at Home Depot and live with the poor screen quality it would make, being that I cannot simply find anything suitable frown.gif

Please help!

Better asked in the "Screens" forum (up under Display Devices), especially in the "DIY Screens" sub-forum...
