Before you start searching online retailers, I'd look locally. Grab a phonebook or online equivalent and search for plastics shops.
Shipping on a sheet that large will be incredible.

Is there anything out a bit further? The shipping is going to be a nightmare on that size of acrylic.

You can try estreetplastics.com. You'll have to special order it most likely.

Have you asked your local glass shops?

They can usually get plexi and lexan in large sizes.

That is extremely thin. I have never seen it under 1/8" thick.
