That is a nice looking room aesthetically, but it's going to be a bit tough to work with when it comes to Home Theater (TV or Projector).
Personally, if it were my room (and I'm not telling you to do this), but what I would do is move the seating closer into the middle and work with that.
Then either get a TV or if you still want a projector, I'd install a desk + hutch (or similar) at the back of the room and hide the projector in a credenza type setup at the top of the hutch, where you can close the doors when not in use.
Then I'd go with like a 120" to 140" screen (your choice).
The issue is you are talking about the seating being 20+ feet away from the screen, that's a long ways away.
Even a 130" screen is going to look somewhat small at that distance, basically like an average TV probably (I didn't calculate it).
So let's say you leave the seating where it is, the next best thing is to do the credenza hutch projector setup at back of room, and go with like a 160"+ screen using a really really bright projector...
Maybe one of the Epson LCD's, or possibly a Viewsonic or Benq DLP.
I would probably not go with a UST in this room, I would want a 150"+ screen in this room, or move the seating closer or change the idea completely.
I know aesthetically that might mean some really tricky decorating, but you could go into a furniture store and ask them for ideas.
One thing you could do is get a big TV and mount it between and slightly above the side doors, then point the screen kind of downward a bit.
When I look at this room, it seems like the root of the problem is the position of the side doors.
