    I will soon be building a 16:9 DIY screen measuring 120’’ x 67.5”. I cannot find blackout fabric any wider than 54”.

    What other screen materials are recommended?

    Check Dazian. They may have wider lengths of blackout-type material.

    You can use fake velvet (velveteen) from any fabric store, it works quite well in the DIY screen I have seen.

    Here is a link to the site of guy I met through this forum:
    http://home.golden.net/~mbrennem/HT/
    He has decent instructions on how he made his screen including the blackout sections.

    Good luck
