With just about all AT screens you need to be sitting no less than 13-14' from the screen as to not see texture or holes. There may be one or 2 fabrics that will let you sit 11' but you will pay a premium price. If you need gain to achieve the proper light output from your projector and screen size pair, you will not be able to get any more than about a gain of 1 with AT screen. There are compromises in either choice you have to figure out which will be the best compromise for you.
One of the professional calibrators that frequent the forum has put together a test report on different screen fabrics. AT is the second set in the PDF even though it is labeled non at.. (cut and paste mistake) your main concerns are seating distance, gain, color neutral and audio degradation..
