Your Blu-ray player can only adjust subtitle position on Blu-rays and DVDs. For Netflix, the subtitles are generated by the Netflix app itself. Any change to the subtitles would have to be done within the app, and Netflix doesn't offer the ability to move position. (Nor does any other streaming service.) This is definitely a downside of streaming.
In addition to Bud's suggestions, another option (if you're able to) is to slightly reduce the zoom on your projector and shift the image upwards until you can read the subtitles. This should give you black bars on three sides, which is not ideal, but better than switching to 16:9 viewing mode and having large bars on all four sides.
FWIW, Roma was recently released on Blu-ray by the Criterion Collection. No 4k, unfortunately.

For clarification, 65mm is a film format. Roma was shot with the Arri Alexa 65, which is a high-end digital camera, and output to a 4k Digital Intermediate. No film involved.
