A while back I bought a 9' x 5' white spandex screen off Ebay for $70 to try as an outdoor screen. I felt I lost too much light through it, so I went with a BOC screen. Now I have this large piece of spandex and I'm thinking of using it for rear projection in my 3 car garage for those hot or stormy nights when you can't go outdoors (the garage is air conditioned). I'm going to go with a 96" diagonal screen. Instead of buying screen tight, I was thinking of cutting a groove in the back of a 1" x 4" poplar frame and using spline material. This gives me the ability to remove the screen and wash it if needed. Any reason this won't work?

Thanks MM. I'll be using the "Tilt/Keystone" method of correction as the projector does not have lens shift. The frame will be made with 2 - 7' legs, upper section will be the screen it self and the lower section will be covered with a solid, dark colored fabric or a painted piece of 1/4" plywood to hide projector and block excess light. Speakers and receiver are already mounted in the garage, I'll just need longer audio cables to connect dvd player to the receiver.
