Installng (retrofitting) a ceiling recessed motorized screen in a finished basement

General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms - www.avsforum.com
I want to install a recessed, motorized screen in my finished basement's ceiling but not sure if it's possible/feasible to do or if that type of installation really needs to be done in a new construction (or renovation). The screens I've looked at are about 150lbs (for 120" diagonal motorized, tensioned Da-lite screens) so it seems like a job for professionals. I'm also not clear on exactly how these are mounted in the ceiling. The Da-lite screens I looked at use brackets that can attach via bolts or wires but not sure how/where those attach to. Presumably to a stud I guess but wondering how that works. The Da-lite instructions did not have any specific info about that part (how/where to attach the mounting brackets to your ceiling).
