    I would like to put a curtain in front of my screen (when installed) and have it open with a opener. I have the opener part figured out (Thanks to Eric with your E Cinema) My problem is that I am going to have a suspended ceiling and I wondered if there is a way to install it from a suspended ceiling? I do not have a stage area or bulk head to mount it to. Any suggestions or pics would be great.

    Thanks
    Curt

    As per my ceiling guy, you can cut sheets of plywood to the dimensions of the tiles and lay them on top of the tiles to mount stuff to if needed.

    Curt, check the "load" that the ceiling tile hangers allow...depending on that, you may have several options. Feel free to contact me offline if you wanna chat! [​IMG]
