I want a screen that is pull down so I can adjust it for 2.35 movies.
Very likely. A manual/electric screen of that size has to ship via private truck as it is too large for UPS and will cost the shipper $100+.

If you want to go above 150" with a manual 16:9 screen you will be looking at $550+ from anything that I am familiar with.

The Draper Luma 2 is your most economical screen in that size/format.

Would I notice a huge differene between a 160" and a 150"? I will be adjusting for 2.35 by rolling it up slightly.

What projector are you using? I wouldn't go too large - you won't be able to light it up after too many hours. At least you need to consider foot lamberts.

Da Lite makes their Model C pull down in a 159" diagonal. It's more than $ 400.00, but not too bad price wise considering the size. Call or email us for a quote or more info.
Do you think it would be a lot more immersive than the 150"?

12% "more immersive", though "immersivity" isn't an internationally recognized unit of measure. :)


150" = 67 square feet
159" = 75 square feet
8/67 = 12%

Thanks David. Of course, one way to get a more immersive screen, other than getting a bigger screen, is to sit closer! I sit 11 1/2 feet from a 128" diagonal 2.35:1 screen.
