The room I have finished up lately just uses a flat-white painted drywall

for a screen, and it looks beautiful. I never wanted spend money on a screen - and decided to spend money elsewhere in the room.


Every time I see a completed theatre room in a new or existing home

I always wonder about the wall-mounted screen - and how different ratioed movies are played on them.


My bottom black screen boarder is adjustable so it will fit either size letterbox - to the 'T'...


How do you guys with screens mounted up on the wall?


Do you just have black bars when watching 16:9 movies?


Just something I've always wondered about, but never would think

of it when I was actually IN someones room that was set up like this.


Later!

Yes, the screen has the black bars projected my the image, or lack there of. To use something to cover the black bars is called masking. Masking, like you have done, increases the preceived contrast.


You can purchase a professional screen with masking or it most cases it can be added later. Or, there are many DYI alternatives that ppl have developed.


I would suggest a visit to the screen forum and a search using "masking" and "DYI screens." to see what others have done.


Good Luck
