I'm thinking of making an 8ft 2.35:1 screen as my loft roof prevents me from going any larger than 7ft wide if I use a 16:9 screen. I haven't checked out the viability of keeping the fixed height ideaology for 16:9 but I'm considering arranging things so that 16:9 sits inside the 2.35:1 filling the height (black bars at the sides), then zooming out to make the image bigger to fit the 2.35:1 ratio for those movies that are that ratio (provided the zoom can facilitate that). Vutec will make a screen in that ratio, but I haven't seen anyone else advertising this, but I will probably us their 1.3 gain bright white material if I go down the diy route. I would like some opinions from people who've got a 2.35:1 screen so I can get an idea of the pros and cons etc before deciding what to do. My current seating arrangements mean that I'll end up sitting at a ratio of 1.5 rather than my current 1.8. but I don't think screendoor is going to be an issue though. TIA Gary.
