Question about projector aspect ratio and resolution

I recently purchased this Acer projector
and am wondering what aspect ratio I should get for the screen.

I bought this 84-inch 4:3 screen
as it was on sale at Amazon and seemed like the nicest one available in the price range, but now I'm thinking I should get the 16:9 version even though it is a 4:3 native projector as all the content I'm watching will be 16:9 or wider. Amazon has free return shipping, so I'm not stuck with it.
My initial thought was that the projector would put out a 4:3 image regardless of the input signal and I'd be distracted by the projected "black bars" if I had a 16:9 screen.
PS Not really interested in a DIY screen as I will be moving this between two rooms in my house for events.
PPS I previously asked
a question about wireless video but have since figured out a corded solution
