Im considering going with a 2:35 screen. I have seen several posts where people say they have 2:35 screens and use masking for 16x9. What is masking?

This guy is doing masking with drapes, but you get the idea:

Here's a demo of an actual masking screen from Stewart:

Do you have to do this if you want to watch 16x9 content on a 2:35 screen?

No it's not required, a lot of us don't mask 16:9 on our scope screens.

See what an anamorphoscopic lens can do, see movies the way they were meant to be seen

Not required, but it does add a definite "wow factor" and help the 16:9 image "pop" more. It also makes the black bars on the side appear to be part of the screen vs. a part of the picture.
