I understand a used one is your best chance.

Two DMD video projectors with orthogonal polarizing filters and matching
polarizing goggles for the audience should work. However 1280x1024 video
projectors are somewhat expensive still, and you will need a suitable
(so reflections doesn't ruin polarization) projection screen.
