I would use a OTS N9 - Glidden Snowfield would be the color you would want.
Thx for your valuable help.

There are "factors" that will dictate the color paint that will work best for you. That is why we need to know the model of projector, the amount of ambient light the room will have during movies and the distance from screen to projector. All these will influence the choice of paint and we are happy to help.
We have EPSON ,absolutely no ambient light in the room & projector is 15 feet from the wall that is being used as screen.
Thank you for your valuable service.

I have a 10 seats professional home theatre & I was told that I do not need to buy a screen but regular paint on the wall is just fine. It is a 140 inch screen. Since I am saving money on screen, I do not mind having the best quality paint for the wall. What company paint and what color would you recommend ?. I have very dark painted walls in brown color.
So what company paint would you recommend ? What color & what type?

You were told well!

Projector brand and model? Throwing distance?
