I've painted two walls so far. The first I used Sherwin Williams Satin enamel in color "Unique Gray". The satin enamel was a mistake because you occassionally get glare. The second wall, I used Sherwin Williams Emerald Flat again with "Unique Gray". I am in love with this paint. It goes on ridiculously smooth without a whole lot of extra effort. The flat cuts off any glare from other light sources or the projector itself. I would say there are likely many other paints that you can use, but I definitely think you should use gray and not white. The gray seems to help rendering color. It also helps to add more distinction in extremely dark or bright scenes. White allows the gradation of black and white to get lost. You just need to make sure you get a dead neutral gray. Mine is a fairly light shade of gray, but my projector is also only 1000 lumens, so you could probably go much darker.
