    I was thinking of placement of the screen to reduce glare from the windows and have a crazy idea. Our kitchen, dining room and living room are all one room. There is a window and sliding door in the kitchen/dining room. I was thinking I can hang a screen at the end of the living room where it meets the kitchen/dining area so that the back of the screen is facing the windows.
    It would'nt hang on a wall as there is'nt one at that location, so i'd get one that I could manually roll up and is mounted to the ceiling.

    How does that sound? Can the light penetrate the screen from behind?

    Light should not penetrate the screen. But if the area behind the screen is not dark, then the screen will look washed out. I believe you want to use the screen itself as a room darkening device. It should work the same as a room darkening type pull down shade.
