Temporary Privacy Door Ideas for Arched Doorway?

Q: I'm moving into an apartment where the bedroom lacks a door — right now it's just an open archway 3 feet wide. It opens into a common space, and I share this apartment with someone else, so I'll need some kind of privacy screen or door. I'd like to avoid the curtain/shoji screen route and go with something a bit more creative.

Building something substantial might be out of the question, only because I don't want to push my limits with the landlord. I'm not super concerned with keeping out noises, mostly just concerned with keeping out eyes. And I'd like any solution to be budget-conscious, of course. Any suggestions?
