Nice. Watched The Incredibles with the kids last night. They loved it. So did I. Very impressive - if you have a dark room.

I thought digital photography rendered dark rooms obsolete?

Dark rooms are still a vital tool for ugly people who are looking to get lucky.

Ok, I really need a screen. The smudges on my front wall are upsetting me (I had the center ch mounted in the middle of the screen/wall, when i used my RPTV). Given that this is a white wall, I'm not thrilled by the brightness (because I can't spell luminescence???) of the projector. Any light really washes out the pic. But on the whole, given the price point, I can't complain at all. The image is better than my 720p 50", and I can easily get a 120" image. At night, movies like the Dark Knight are stellar, absolutely better than a movie theater - not even close.

I'll try to have more useful information in my next post.

Stewart - spend the money. You won't regret it. You’ll have the screen much longer than the projector, most likely several projectors.

Agreed, screens are relatively cheap compared to everything else. I have had good luck with Carada.

I was leaning towards cheaper, as I can't see much technical difference in the material used, and I don't mind building the frame. But I'm starting to come around to your way of looking at this. Perhaps I should just bite the bullet and get a proven screen.

I've gone both routes. From making one, to inexpensive to Stewart. Sure wish I would have just bought the damn Stewart from day one. I would give them a call, tell them about your set up, and they will tell you what screen you need. Then call AVS and get a price. I'd also suggest you get a 2.35 screen as well.
