To get the most out of movie nights at home, however, splurge on a digital projector and screen that can lower from the ceiling to the fireplace mantel, covering the flat-panel TV. The screen can be concealed behind crown molding or recessed into the ceiling when not in use. The projector (ceiling-mounted opposite the screen) transmits TV signals or recorded programming onto the screen. No more craning your neck to watch movies at home.
