Hi guys, After many years of contemplating I have decided that I want to take the plunge into the scope screen experience amongst many fellow forum members on here who have already been enjoying the ultra wide cinema experience for some time . When I built my cinema setup a few years back I built a false wall in order to house my LCR speakers behind an AT screen. I love the AT screen experience. Having sound coming from behind the screen rather than around it is an experience on it's own and wouldn't really have anything less now.. I currently have a 120" 16:9 AT screen and only use my viewing for 4K movies etc which are all mainly 2.35:1 or 2.39:1 aspect ratio. This means in my 16:9 screen I will always see black bars on top and bottom. 90% of movies now are mainly in this format too. I have a JVC projector and have been playing around with zooming out a bit and seeing how much more screen real estate I could get if I were to go scope. So, it turns out I will have 18" total in width and 10" total in height more when actually viewing a 2.35:1 movie. This just blew my mind and made me wonder why I never went this format in the first place. Now I am looking to sell my 16:9 AT screen and building a DIY scope screen. There are a few things I need to ask and would be grateful if you guys could please help me out This is my first screen build so here are a few questions: 1 - Should I use 4 x 1 timber or 4 x 2 timber when building the screen and why? 2 - What is the best AT screen material to use without breaking the bank. I think I may already know the answer to this.. is it Film-ex? sold by @Jag @ Epic Home Cinema or is there another material which is now better or maybe Jag himself can kindly advise.. Maybe he has a new material now? 3 - Is the Kreg Jig the best way to assemble the timbers together? 4 - In this video the guy uses a black spandex for bottom layer then one layer of AT screen material. Is this recommended or is it better to just use 2 x layers of AT screen material? 5 - In order to get max screen width, I was thinking of doing a scope screen without borders and then having black velvet panels on the top and bottom of the screen.. or is it recommended to slightly sacrifice the screen size and have maybe 2 or 4 inch velvet borders on the left and right sides too? 6 - Which actual format is recommended to build? 2.35:1 , 2:39:1 or 2.40:1 and why? Apologies for all the questions but I want to make sure I am going in the right direction and trust you guys to point me to that direction in order for me to build the best screen that I can.. I will try to show you guys what I mean with pictures below.. This is my current screen as can be seen mounted with a bracket to the existing false wall. if you look at this picture you will see that the screen border is 4" and then you have a further 5" or false wall on each side, so in total it makes 9" each side and 18" in total in terms of wideness if I went edge to edge. The first couple of pictures shows the current setup and the very last one which is a scene from Deadpool show the image being zoomed out as if to show how much bigger it would with the extra 9" inches either side and the image being 10" in height.. In reality it is so much more immersive but you can not really tell this in the pictures..Finally, all your help and advises are greatly appreciated and I look forward to some great tips and ideas Thank you.
