With the prices of projectors now fully affordable, more and more people are creating their own movie theater setups indoors and out. To do it right, you’ll want a projector screen. Here are three reasons why, and what to look for in a good one.

Technically, you can project onto any light background. But for high-quality experience, you’ll want to avoid classic methods like using a white bedsheet. While this can be effective in a pinch, you’re bound to have wrinkles, and cotton sheets aren’t uniform on the surface. A proper projection screen is perfectly smooth, so nothing distracts from the content you’re watching. Even with projectors of a lesser quality, a screen will provide more accurate and brighter colors.

One vital element of buying a projector screen is figuring out how you’re going to mount it. There are several different mounting options. The cheapest is simply a screen with holes around the borders for hooks; this is ideal if you’re mounting on a wall. There are pull-down screens, which can be mounted on a ceiling or other support above you. If none of these options work, and you need to set the screen up in the middle of a space? Go for a tripod-mounted screen.

One important part of measuring whether a screen is good is how reflective it is. This is measured with a metric called “gain”—the higher the gain, the more it reflects. If you’re using a mini projector, which tends to not be as powerful as a traditional bulb-based projector, you’ll want a more reflective surface. That’ll enable the colors to bounce back, making them appear sharper and more vivid.
