Bright red or purple are not good choices for a home theater curtain, as they cause reflections of the screen. When choosing a fabric you should stay clear of shiny finishes for the same reason.

You must also make sure that there is room for the curtain when it opens since the fabric bunches up - this is known as stacking. If you do not leave room for fabric stacking the open curtain will be partially over the screen. Screen curtains open two ways, either from the middle to both sides or to a single side. When planning for stacking from a middle opening screen curtain you need two feet on both side of the curtain for stacking. If you choose a curtain that when open stacks to only one side, then you need to have four feet available for stacking. This is a general rule of thumb, though thicker fabrics may need more room.

If the room is too small for stacking you can create the theater effect by simply hanging curtains on the sides of the screen. Although not as dramatic as a covered screen, it is more economical as fabric and hardware costs are less expensive.
