Sorry, but posts like this crack me up.
We seem to see a few of them every year. That and the "I have a $500 budget and want a 298" diagonal which will be in my rec room with a ceiling fan so I need a 2.5" throw distance and it must be 1080p, 3D, and do my dishes - which projector should I choose, there are so many..." (typically followed by a link to a Chinese owned product or a $300 VGA projector on eBay)
In all fairness, people not familiar with projectors, including the original poster, just need to be open to the idea that they can't do what they are hoping to do, or if they have deep pockets (some may), that they will need to adjust their strategy.
I know Stewart in conjunction with Digital Projection has done a poolhouse setup with rear projection where the entire wall of the poolhouse was done with StarGlas 60 (I believe) and a 10,000 lumen 1080p projector. It is about 150" diagonal or so, and is daytime viewable while in the pool.
So, with the right budget, it is possible to achieve some amazing things, but outside the norm of a indoor home theater setup with 10-20 foot throw distance and a screen between 90 and 120 inches in diagaonal, things can start to get exponentially pricey.
Certainly is achievable if someone has the budget!
