I need a projection screen. I do wedding videos and often show Love Stories at the rehearsal dinner and/or the reception. I got tired of producing a good looking product only to have it ruined by the cheap projection equipment found at some of the venues.

So, I now have a good quality 2200 lumens projector and I need to purchase a screen. I know nothing about screens. I want something that will be large enough for a room of 200 - 300 people, be easy to transport and look good. In my investigation, I have noticed that there are a number of different screen types (glass etc.). I have also noticed that the screens that have a frame take a long time to set up and tear down. If possible, I'd like to try to avoid that. What do you recommend?

I don't have a direct answer, but perhaps some tips:

1. check out home theater forums

2. ckeck out (online) shops that sell business equipment for presentations (these usually have screens for travel and such)

3. (real) screens are expensive, just so you know

Good luck!
