Let me start by saying this is one of many 20-foot screens available via Amazon; most of them sell for $10-$20 higher. But I didn't choose this based on price alone; I like it because in addition to the usual tie-down stakes and rope, it comes with water bags.
If it's a breezy night, you can deploy those bags for extra stability. Stakes don't often stay staked, and ropes are a tripping hazard. Water bags solve both those problems; they go inside the triangular base of the screen, totally out of the way.
Another perk: There's a 350-watt fan included; it'll get the inflation job done faster than screens that come with a 250-watt fan.
Now you just need a projector. Given the size of the screen, I highly recommend choosing a 4K model, assuming it's within your budget. That'll ensure you get a razor-sharp image even at full size.
One of the more affordable options out there right now: The ViewSonic PX701-4K, which sells for $900. It can work indoors and out, of course, and it has a powered USB port for plugging in, say, a Chromecast or Fire TV streaming stick.
