I have been debating a similar dilemma only in my case I have a fully light controlled room complete with black velour walls and ceiling but there’s occasions when you want to have some light in the room especially when watching a sporting event with mates or just general TV channels. I have already made to decision I want to switch to a cinemaScope screen and luckily the Epson caters for this with a memory motorised lens.
My question is two fold, will a simply screen material like Carl’s FlexiGrey or would I be best getting the ALR version give enough light rejection to watch whilst not crushing the image in complete darkness. And is this the best option for improving blacks without ditching my Epson and getting a JVC which would be more than I’m willing to go at the moment?
