Theater Scrims

Custom-made, high quality theater scrims.

Theater Scrim Colors & Mesh Type

Imagine a giant, high-resolution, dense mesh sheet (for wind) made of an outdoor marine-grade polyester, bound on all sides and prepared with Velcro or Grommets to your specifications.

We decided to focus on the quality of our theater scrim material and offer flexible rigging techniques where you can hang your theater scrim from any overhead surface including a header beam on your porch.

High resolution projection screen

As good as resolution gets for traditional movie projection. Used primarily for outdoor projection screens.

Some people prefer silver scrim in a theater/movie room. Still can be used outdoors, resolution is very close to white.

Black theatre scrim

Less visible when not projecting. Often black is used in night clubs when you want an eerie ghostly effect.  Great for light shows.

White Theater Scrims for a translucent dreamy effect.

  • When front projecting, the resolution is very good and the screen becomes opaque.
  • Darken the audience side and illuminate the subjects for a translucent dreamy effect.
  • Darken the audience side and back-light the subjects to display silhouettes of the subjects.

Silver / Gray Theater Scrims

  • We have 1 mesh in Silver / Gray.
  • The effect is a hybrid between white and black.

Black Theater Scrims offer a ghostly ethereal effect.

  • We have 2 different densities of mesh for resolution vs clarity.
  • When front projecting, the resolution is ghoulish and not as crisp as white.
  • Darken the audience side and illuminate the subjects so clearly, you wonder if there is a theater scrim at all.

Projection Resolution for Theatre Scrim

Lighting has everything to do with creating the right effect. Images can be viewed from either side of the mesh with nearly equal resolution (rear project or front project). The theatre scrim resolution depends upon:

  • Mesh Color
  • Size of desired image
  • Projector Lumens (we used 3200 lumens)
  • Ambient (surrounding) light
  • How close projector must be to project desired image size called “projector throw”. A Shorter throw puts out better resolution.
