I've expressed my reservations on a projector and screen as your main viewing television. It kind of takes over a room. If you do have the space to integrate a ceiling hung projector and either a fixed or retractable screen and it doesn't ruin your interior design, well then, I'm on board. Especially if you're planning a Super Bowl party.
I get invited to a Super Bowl party every year but not once has the host had the "big screen" treatment. I'm not complaining. I don't have such a set up but I do have a 55" HD television. It may be a good idea to ask the host what sort of TV and surround set up they have before you accept the invitation. If it isn't 50 plus inches, high def, and more than a home theater in a box audio system you may just tell them you have other plans.
Of course I'm kidding...somewhat. To me, unless the Cleveland Browns get in one day (hear me Lord), the Super Bowl is about getting together with friends and eating delicious but unhealthy food. And, of course, watching the commercials. The game is the least important aspect of the day unless you're gambling or it's a close affair. But seriously, a decent sized TV and surround set up should be a prerequisite to throw a Super Bowl party.
One such writer for the Washington Times talks about how important her home theater is to the Super Bowl party, Super Bowl XLVI: Watch it on TV or in a home theater?
