Help with At screen

Hey!

I Will be in a completly light controled room with dark walls and roof. New to projectors and screens but thinking of the Epson 5040ub and a 2.35:1 screen. The room is 11.8feet Wide and about 20Feet Long. First row Will be around 9-10feet.

How would a silver ticket acosutic woven 140" be from that distance?(BIG) Onlyo 4k movies (pixel Shift but Still) Would a Elite screen acosutic transparent be better? Thats My max budget currently

Also found dreamscreen v5 in this size and same money, would this be much better than the ones above? If so is there anyware to buy a fixed frame only that i can use the rails you get with the screen?

//From Sweden!

you may want to move your first row back to at least 11' for an AT screen.. Most have weave or perf that can be seen from that distance. This guy reviewed a bunch, not sure if the one you want is on there but is worth a read.

There are woven AT screens that work for shorter throw distances. Seymour UF, Screen Excellence Neo and DreamScreen V6 are all able to be viewed from much closer. Heck, standing 2' away from DreamScreen V6 in a well lit room and you would not even realize it is a woven AT screen.
