Do the Syriac Church and Armenian Church use icon screens?

Armenians don't and I'm fairly sure the Syriac Church doesn't either.

Haven't I seen a curtain in use or something?

Yes, there are times when a curtain is drawn in front of the altar.

I have worshiped in this church before. I was at the arch bishops installation a few years ago. I beleive his name is Mor Ephraim.

I beleive this church is dedicated to the Holy Trinity in Teaneck NJ. ( 90 percent sure but must verify)

Very nice picture.

I have rarely seen the inside of an orthodox church on holy friday orther than The Ethiopian of course and the Coptic.

Nice photos. Yes, no icon screen, but the rear of the nave appears to have one almost identical to an EO temple's iconostasios. Most interesting.

It is REALLY weird to see a Church without an iconostasis for me. How I've changed!
