    What sort of price would i be looking at for a 80inch fixed wall screen? Who makes them? and do they come esembeld?

    My cinema is a loft conversion so an already esembled screen would not go up the stairs.

    What about a spot of DIY?

    Seems many forum members have gone down this route. Simplest would be an 8' x 4' sheet of MDF painted a suitably bright white. and then some blackout area - matt black paint maybe or some matt black material to absorn any overspill of light.

    You'd save an awful lot of cash I'd guess.

    Depends if you can get an 8' x 4' sheet of MDF upstairs :D

    There's been a few threads on DIY screens. Try doing a search on it. here's one link tho that I picked out

    LDIY Screen

    Some actually advocate a slightly grey paint as it makes blacks look darker. But it makes your whites greyer as well (depending on how grey it is). You need a completely blacked out room for this though.
