    Could I suggest you look at one of the Harkness mid contrast screens. The 7205 if easily bright enough for this type of screen and you'll get a noticable boost in contrast ratio. I use one at home with a ProjectionDesign Action Model One and the picture is stunning.

    THX recommended screen size for 11' distance would be about 98" so I would settle for something around that since you shouldn't have much screen door problems with a 720p projector.

    The 7205 is quite bright, so I would either go for a 0.8 gain grey screen or use a ND filter unless you like insanely bright images :)
