I owned an Epson EX72xx for a short while. For $200, you'll be thrilled with it. If you had twice the budget, I'd make a different recommendation, but sometimes it just comes down to what's available right now. Get a projector and start enjoying your screen for the rest of the season.

Ty for the reply.  I've come to the realization that a new projector of acceptable quality is not in the works for new this year,  unless I was to buy a no name knock off,  which I was already advised to do.  So now I'm looking into used,  and would be willing to spend 300-400, but there's so many options.  I do know that 3000 lumens is the absolute minimum for brightness,  because I'd like to be able to show by dusk at latest.  What are the other important specs I need to look at? Contrast ratio,  what should I be looking for? Name brands other than epson,  Acer,  BenQ, and optoma? I don't mind putting in the research,  but not sure what I need to look for.

For a under $400 new projector, I'd buy this: https://www.amazon.com/Epson-Cinema-Brightness-Theater-Projector/dp/B014D7Y1XC/

I own four of them right now and they are awesome for outdoor movie screens.

TY again for the reply. Biggest downside I have to that particular unit is the lack of audio out. You find the picture quality acceptable at 1080? I was led to believe I wouldn't be happy with a 720p.

I'd prefer an audio out as well, but you get a relatively inexpensive switcher that performs the same functionality (I use this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QJGAKCW/).

I also have the Epson 1040 which is essentially the same projector but with 1080 resolution. Yes, it looks slightly better with Blu-ray content, but I'm still perfectly happy with the 720 picture as well. Many people imagine the picture quality between 720 and 1080 is substantial, but it's really not. It's better if you can afford it, but not a deal breaker if you can't.

For a 144" screen, I predict you'll be quite pleased with anything 2500+ lumens and at least 1280x720 resolution.

That is a perfect solution to my problem. I'm taking your advice and will be willing to go for 720p which opens up my options and also allows me to grab a unit w/ a lack of audio out. Thanks, again!!
