    We will be moving into a mansion flat soon, with high (14-16'?) ceiling and fancy plasterwork. I would like to get a screen mounted on the ceiling, as all of the walls are complicated for various reasons. Is it possible to get a 16:9 screen with a huge drop, and blackened for the top part, otherwise we will need to be almost horizontal to see the top of a screen.<br />Do screens come like this or should I get a huge 4:3 screen?

    You can get most "proper" screens specified with as much top black drop as you like. but talk to the screen manufactuers.

    You can also get floor mounted screens!.<br />They are portable and you can hide them behind a sideboard etc.<br />Then when you want to watch a film, you just pull them up.<br />They have a "scissor action" type rear support structure, that locks and holds up the screen.<br />The wife uses one for giving presentations etc.<br />Just an idea!

    Thanks very much.

    I did think about those floor ones, but thought it would be good to get an electric one if I could. Working out the size will be the next issue.

    Do any of the screen companies send people out for a consultation or to suss out what would be best?

    We're going to be in East Sussex.
