    hi guys. i have an 8 foot x 10 foot screen wall to fill and i cant make my mind up what size diagonal or aspect ratio to go for.
    ive read that 2.39.1 is best for movie buffs which i consider myself to be. but am concerned the height of the screen may not be as high as i would like. example: 114 inch diagonal 2.39.1 screen im told is 44" high x 105" long. nice and wide but i think a bit narrow at only 44" high.
    and yet a 16.9 seems to offer a nice big screen both in height and width. but with black bars when showing 2.39.1 aspect ratio movies which is most of the time. i understand black bars i will have to live with regardless of what i go for. has anyone else struggled to make up there minds on this issue?
    my projector is a JVC DLA 750 16.9 i am a newbie so any hel pwill be much appreciated.

    regards steve
