Buying a Draper React Screen.. Projector screen too big?

Hi guys,
So my plan is to buy a Sony HW40ES project to begin with and get a Draper React ALR screen.
I know it a bit of a mismatch as my PJ will cost 400, the screen 700.


Anyway I have an issue. The draper is about 100 inches but my projected throw of the projector will probably be closer to 90 inches. I can't get a good deal on a draper screen for 90 inches so what are my options?

Is there any material I can use to limit the or disguise the effect of the image that won't be filled in or am I kind of stuffed?

Get a different projector, one that will throw a 100" image.

Really, the best option in a smaller room is to use a projector with a different throw ratio, or to get a smaller screen. It's far less than ideal to try a mirror bounce and the complexities of setting something like that up.

You need just over 3m to get 100" out of that Sony. It's a fixed minimum distance, so that's what you need if you want 100" diagonal.
