Short Throw - Ceiling Mounted! Need HELP


Novice Member
So, I need to mount a Motorized Screen (not too tough to figure out) on a beam in the room. Where I am running into problems is the projector.
There is a chandelier in the middle of the room that will not allow for a projector length >7 feet. Because of structures on the wall behind the Beam, it has to be ceiling mounted.

This is a playroom, the screen will be used for Disney+ and some movies possibly. Can make the room dark-ish, but we dont need the BEST quality ever.

Current thoughts were....
  • Mount Ultra Short Throw on the same beam as the motorized screen. But it seems the only ones you can flip/invert are the ones meant for classrooms and a static image? Not ideal for TV/movies, etc
  • Short throw, BenQ, etc --> Seem to be more for classrooms as well. I can mount 3 inches - 7 Feet.

Any suggestions on projector would be appreciated! Pic of Beams!
