What are some good AT projector screen?

I have heard of Seymour AV and Falcon AT screens. Is the Falcon Vision Horizon worth considering? Does it come with the frame and everything or just the fabric? I tried not to go beyond $2,500 max on the screen because there will be other things that I still need to spend money on. Thanks!

Seymour is excellent. Falcon may no longer be available.

Da-lite is a good company but their perforated screens use large perforations which isn't the best for home theaters where seating is often closer than commercial cinemas. So depending on how far you sit from the screen you might notice the perforations. You should also decide between perforated and woven type AT screens. Each had their pros and cons.

Do you have any experience with Grandview AT fabric? What's your thought?

I haven't used them. it appears they make both woven and perforated options. Each has its pros and cons but while I am not a big fan of samples as they don't tell the whole story. This would be an area where they are beneficial as you could judge if the weave or perforations are noticeable from your viewing difference.

Is is Da-Lite screen better than the Elite Screen? This particular Da-Lite screen is a little bit over $2K so I was thinking if the price difference is enough to justify the quality compare to Elite Screen or other vendors.

For you price range ST and Elite are what you should look at. Steve looked at a bunch of different types, if you read the last 6 pages of the Silver Ticket thread youll get a feel for it. It is a challenge for some to put together, YMMV

At 110 inches, I would imagine they are all within your $2500 limit except for maybe the Screen Innovations
