Try it out on both sides and see which side looks better. BOC varies from place to place I believe. The folks who paint usually paint the rubber side though. You may see texture artifacts from the woven side. Pin it up and watch it a bit. :T
we have a big living room, but cant have it all!!
I will either be putting together a room 12x12-12x14, or 10.5'x 23' depending on what the wife lets me do. I have enough screen material to make a 2nd screen if decided to.
To me it looks the same on both sides of the boc, just demo-ing the blue screen.
The material I have is 108x 54. I want to make as big of a screen that will look good and not be looking side to side. I have my wood cut now so that I could build the frame at 96x54. I dont know if the boc will stretch enough for that, or if I am thinking too big.
according to the THX formula a 110" screen should have seating 11' away, that seems like it would work, if I can get the pj back to between 14' and 16'11" away from screen. I guess some of the never projectors need a smaller throw. At 11'5" at max zoom I could only get a 90" screen it seems according to Projector Centrals calculator. I don't know if using zoom makes the picture look worse or has any detrimental effect though.
I am working on the screen now. I am going to stretch the cloth across the back of the frame. Frame is going to be wrapped in black felt. I am going to HD to buy some metal L-brackets to hold frame 2gether.

Extreme newbie question here. Will there be any long term bad effects if I paint primer on my wall to use as a screen and then repaint it later when I learn enough and acquire a good paint/paint mix for the actual screen? I'm thinking of rolling it on. 1/4" nap seems to be a recommended...

Hi. I have an Epson 2030 that I would love to bring outside for movie nights. I have been looking at this screen material and am wondering what would be the best way to build a frame that is durable and cheap at the same time. Anyone ever done this and have instructions and pictures? I also want...
