Most screens mount with a French cleat system and gravity. If you need to access the speakers you pick it up and set it aside.

In my case the fabric panel below the screen is also removable most of what I need to get to is accessible via that as a service hatch.

What Big said is what I do as well, but I have also seen people use piano hinges and lift the screen up. Then they place a prop bar or something to hold it up.

Another vote for french cleat. I changed mine from store bought cleat/hangers to a french cleat I made myself from 1x6. DIY was much better and cheaper and very easy to do

Google Z clips, they come from various vendors and in various lengths, Home Depot has them. IKEA has used them to hang kitchen cabinets. You can make one from pieces of wood cutting an angle on both pieces.

Pictures and Video here
