Help with Retractable screen (tight on height)

I am looking for a cost effective retractable screen (good for 4K) for my setup (manual or motorized ok).


- 120" to fill the width between the windows
- The TV (63" shown in picture, now 82") will be wall mounted
- Speakers will be pulled to the sides out of the way
- Screen will be mounted under the crown molding and stand off so it pulls down in front of the TV
- I only have 73" from the crown molding to the TV console (less if I get a center channel, est 6.5" high which would yield 67")
- Screen would need to be able to pull down partially as most 120" screens fully extended advertise overall heights in the 80"s (but I don't need all that black area above the screen).



Any suggestions?

My suggestion is to lose the console. It's a much cleaner look with a wall mounted TV and drop screen. Put the components elsewhere in the room preferable hidden. The AV equipment in the front of the room under the screen is very old school way of thinking and no long practical.

Of course the LCR speakers need to be up front but it's a lot easier to hide speaker wire and it's inexpensive compared to HDMI. The TV will still need a cable so maybe a place somewhere equal distance from projector and TV for shorter cable runs. Center can be on a small stand or mounted on a small shelf under the TV.
