Best portable screen that will fit in a car ?

I am thinking of bringing my projector to friend's houses unless it is easier to just use a wall.

Nothing easier than using a wall.

It's a no-brainer that it's obviously easier to project on a wall than to haul a portable screen around town. But it depends on whether or not all your friends have walls that are suitable for projection, so you first need to check your friends' walls for suitability. If you decide you need a screen for the best experience at all your friends' houses then it depends on what size screen you are able to fit in your vehicle. If you want the biggest possible screen then you would need to measure the longest dimension in your vehicle that will accommodate the length of a rolled up portable screen and then check the length dimension of various portable screens to find the largest one that will fit.

It will fit in you car and be easy to use. I used to bring my projector to video games nights some years ago and this was the best solution in found.

Have fun!

Don't over complicate things -- why don't you just paint your friend's wall with screen paint?

If it's a one-time thing, and the walls are white, I would just use the walls. My projector downstairs is projecting onto a fine-grain stucco wall that is slightly off-white and the picture is amazingly good for what it is. Mine would definitely look better with a screen, but I like the stealth effect on the wall (the projector and sound system are all hidden). A white wall (or even slightly off-white) smooth wall should be fine.

If it's going to be a regular thing, then probably worth getting a portable screen, but I would still evaluate the picture quality on the wall before buying a screen if you have the opportunity to test it.

IMO, a simple blackout cloth will do more than justice,.
