Has anyone seen plans for a screen that has something like a huge wall map, picture, etc. on one side and the PJ screen on the other. I am imagining the wo vertical edges would have slots running the length on the edge facing the center screen. Two pins located at one extreme of the screen could be slide all the way up with the screen facing side A and all the way down with a flip-over for side B in a manner somewhat akin to how my clean-in-place windows work...

I looked around, but can't find any hits...MUST be using bad keywords.

Steve, mr_ro_co, made a rigid flip-down screen with a winch thing, and his speakers are integrated into the frame above & below the screen. That was a kind of interesting way to do it, if you put stuff behind it then it would kind of accomplish the same thing as a reveal.

Usually people just do drop-down screens though, that seems a lot easier and neater.

There are rolling fabric art reveal frames that you can get or make to hide a flat panel, those are kind of cool.

I've never really seen what you're asking for as a stand-alone product though, other than hinged art frames behind which you could hide a safe or something, but never anything big enough for a FP screen.

I think you'd probably have to construct something like this yourself.
