Using curtains as CIH screen masks

The plan for our HT room is for a 113" cinemascope screen, projected at constant image height. The motorised curtains will act as masks for the non-scope footage.

Can anyone tell me if there's a particular material we need to use for the curtains? Or will any black material work?

Re: Using curtains as CIH screen masks

What are you using for your motorzed curtains? Have you looked at these?

As far as curtains, yes I can give you an excellent company to get material from. I have to run right now but will have the information up no later than Sunday morning, fair enough?

Thanks Bill -- is that link working?

We're in Australia, so shipping may pose a problem. But if it's worth it...

As for the motorised mechanism, nope, I haven't decided on anything yet. Something that doesn't jam would be good *chuckle*

I think they actually have a branch out of Australia too.
