Projector question: Does any know of a consumer level digital projector with a fairly long throw distance? Or any DIY solutions for increasing the throw distance on a projector?

I've done some googling and found various expensive conversion lenses and whatnot, but I'm curious whether anyone knows offhand of something better. The goal is to project from the back of a medium sized movie house onto the screen and not have a huge overlap of the image outside of the screen boundary. Secondarily, less 'screen door effect' would be nice, but we're not too picky where that's concerned.
I have a projector that I recently purchased for home use, and we've tried that one and it's okay, but just too large from that distance.
Any DIY solutions for increasing your throw distance?
Thanks guys, you all rock hardcore.
