We have a 100" projection screen currently mounted on the ceiling. We are about to move to a converted church where the ceilings are too high and funky shaped to allow for ceiling-mounting. The walls are also not workable for wall-mounting for similar reasons. Are there any tripod type stands out there that could be used with our current screen? Any other ideas? It seems like all that's out there are stands with built-in projectors, but maybe you all know of a needle in a haystack. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks!

It isn't realistic to convert a ceiling screen to a tripod screen.

It's a couple hundred to a few hundred dollars to get a new screen, or if the walls are white, you can just use the wall. But, conversion doesn't work because the bar, at the bottom of the screen, isn't designed to support the weight of the screen if you were to have it upside down.

There are plenty of manual roll up screens from a number of companies, such as Elite Screens (for example), DaLite, and Draper also have a number of products in this category.
