What color should I paint a projection screen wall?

I use my garage wall as a projector screen to project movies and sports for the family and neighborhood.  FYI: I don’t actually use a projector screen - everything gets projected directly up on the wall.  What would be the best color to paint it the wall to get the best picture? Right now it’s a beige/yellow color.

    The obvious answer is white, except that will tend to whiten dark parts of images.

    If you're trying to save a lot of money then I would recommend a neutral gray. Something that doesn't go toward one color or the other, just a flat ashy gray around 30-50%.

    If you're willing to invest a bit of money into better results, go to this website and see what they recommend:


    And also strongly consider blackout curtains for the best effect.
