2.35:1 Screen Advice

I'm thinking about buying a 2.35:1 screen for a new home cinema project, rather than 16:9.
It would need to be acoustically transparent as there will be in-wall speakers behind it, and it needs to be electric rather than fixed as there's a window there.
Can anyone suggest a decent place to buy a screen? I'm looking at about 150".
Cheers guys.

Seymour screens are excellent. You’ll get one for that price. Go direct to Jon, he’s really helpful.

Ooooh look at this auto masking baby

Looks like you might be able to see the weave on this screen. £2500 is a bargain if it is their newer material, but they’ve said that it’s a few years old, so it may not be 4k ready, in other words, you’ll see the weave when watching at closer viewing distances.......

Thanks for that. Looks good, but might be a bit smaller than I was planning, I think I can get away with a 150” screen.

Check these guys out HiViLux, they are based in Germany but ship to the UK, this one is only 133" but they will do custom sizes.
Thanks, I've sent them an email to see what they can do.

Ah ok, so maybe 150" would be fine. I need to buy a projector (and the speakers, amp etc etc...!)
Looking at either Sony 570 or JVC I think.

Yeh, I think you will be ok for 150". I would also recommend Seymour but I don't think you would get a 150" Electric AT for 2k.
