I bought this screen from an estate sale a few years back and the person didn't know if it was Classis Cinema White or Bright White. How can you tell which is which?

I love my 136" 2.35:1 Carada Criterion Brilliant White screen. Sad to see they closed. Anyone have their site archived? I'd like to get a PDF of the product, support and install pages for my screen...

Hi, need help, I am removing my Carada screen which I installed about 8 years ago. I don't want to damage it and haven't been able to remove it easily. Should I just push down hard on the lower bar of the frame until in unclips from it? Thanks.

If memory serves, you would push up, not down .. and, it's really best to have two folks, one on each end ..

The lower clip looks like this:


I admit I didn't install mine very tight, but to get mine off I pulled down from the bottom middle of the frame then pulled out just a tad. Then my wife and I lifted it up and off the top mounting bracket. Good luck!

Mine has the bottom bracket, its a simple "pull down, then out, then up." Screen is off.

Bummer that Carada Flopped! I loved their CS...I had a custom 2.40:1 115" BW screen made for me, about 4-5 years ago. I still use it in my current theater! I'm just wondering if going to a dark energy screen, or other ambient-rejecting screens would even benefit in my completely light-controlled theater. hmmm...But I do love the texture (or lack of texture) from the brilliant white material....very smooth, and pretty much was 4K ready, years ago imho.

If you have a " completely light-controlled theater ", a white screen with a gain of unity - 1.3 max is the way to go in my opinion. I think you are still good with your current screen.

Dammit, I love my fixed 16:9 screen, looking to get a 2.39:1 screen. So who else makes good value screens like Carada?

Anyone know the reason they closed shop? I thought they were selling well.

Evidently not selling as well as they would have liked as they closed shop and changed direction and purchased / opened a Bullhide gun belt store! I wish them the best as their screen manufacturing was superb at a very reasonable cost and customer service was absolutely second to none. I bought one of their very last manufactured screens last November and they custom made it to fit my (used) Carada Masquerade. They are definitely missed.

Anyone know a good alternative to Carada? I was hoping to get a screen and sad to see they're out of business. Looks like Optoma Greywolf screens are gone too

All I'm finding on Amazon (canada) is Silver Ticket and Elite Aeon, for ~$500 for 92-100"

If you can stretch your budget a little, Stewart's Cima Neve is a great screen choice.

I have a Carada CCW 135" 16x9 Criterion. Would I see a difference if I got an elite screens? I want to go a little smaller and scope for better HDR.

I have a 128 inch 2.35 Carada BW screen I might be getting rid of. I believe it is the Brilliant White but could be Cinema White not sure how to tell.

I have never seen an Elite in person. If you can swing the ca$h, then Stewart is my suggestion.

So I've developed what I thought was a ripple in my Carada screen.

Not even sure it is... but it LOOKS like a ripple.

I tried the hair dryer method and it didn't seem to affect it at all.

Now that Carada is no longer I'm not entirely sure what to do.

Looked at Stewart screens... UHHH no?

Is there a decent alternative to Carada? I've read the Silver Ticket are close... but upon reading reviews at Amazon I'm thinking they're not even close.

Anyone have any suggestions.

Depends on what you need. For wihite screens, Stewart Cima Neve is the best bang for you buck, if their standard sizes meet your needs. For ALR or AT on a budget but still quality, it’s Seymour.

Take down screen, lay on floor with back up, unsnap the screen, turn material 180o and snap back in place, rehang screen .. see what happens ..

Mines been in place for at least 12 years, still tight as a drum .. honestly, I've never heard of a ripple developing long after installation .. you could also shine a flashlight at it from the side in question and I'd guess that could confirm one way or the other ..

Yeah that was the odd part, I thought it was a ripple, but when I took it down to do the hair dryer thing it didn't appear rippled at all... just had dark areas that looked like a ripple?

So I used some water and tried to clean it, thinking that was the issue, but no joy there either.
