    I wondered if CRT projectors would benefit from a screen with a slight curve, like in film projected theatres? Or are they built for firing on a flat screen only?

    curved screens can be used with CRT projectors, but there can be issues with focus and the narrowness of the viewing cone. Most curved screens I've used are also very high gain, so there can also be problems with colour shift from across the screen.

    All in all, not worth the hassle when you have projectors capable of driving a flat screen very well. Just my opinion of course :D
