Before you do anything wait until the projector comes in and you have watched a few things with it.
If you decide to stick with a white screen, you may want to repaint with something a little more durable. I would recommend you consider the Behr Exterior Premium Plus ULTRA Flat UPW #4850. It rolls well and levels out very well. It is also a very bright white. This is an exterior paint that will be more durable and washable once it has cured.
If you are going to go gray then you could go with the Sherwin Williams Duration base tinted with one of the following:>>> 199 203 203 - SW 7071 GRAY SCREEN
N8 == 202 202 202>>> 204 205 202 - SW 7064 PASSIVE *
N8.5 == 215 215 215>>> 215 218 218 - SW 6253 OLYMPUS WHITE>>> 221 223 220 - SW 7070 SITE WHITE>>> 224 224 223 - SW 6259 SPATIAL WHITE *>>> 227 227 229 - SW 6539 SOOTHING WHITE *
N9 == 229 229 229Click tints to view color visualization.
* Tints that appear the most neutral to me.
The "Passive" looks like a very good darker gray close to N8, while the "Spatial White" or "Soothing White" look like very good lighter grays approaching an N9. Given your darker room colors and light control I would suggest you err on the lighter side. So I would be inclined towards the "Soothing White".
BUT first try the Kilz2 alone and also consider making up a sample panel of the "Soothing White" to try before painting the whole screen.
