I was looking to paint a basement wall to make a projection screen. Here's what I found:

Apparently Behr has a paint color called SliverScreen (paint code is 770E-2) that you can get at Home Depot.
 
Am I missing a better alternative?

 Although no paint has yet to achieve ISF certification I've seen several home theater set-ups with painted screens that looked more than acceptable. 
 
I would suggest that making some sort of frame using black velvet or a close approximation so that any light spill will be attenuated will go along way toward making your painted screen look even better.
