Now i dont really have the cash for the curved one and ive been waiting for a good 7-8 months for a price drop without any luck. Ive looked at amazon and such for other options but there seems to be few available and if i find one its usually not available for shipping to me.
Now my questions are:
1. Ive never (besides in the cinema) seen a standard 2.35:1 screen - How is the difference noticable between the 2 types? (i do still have my anamorphic lens)
2. Are there any places that sell cinemascope screens for a reasonable amount and also ships internationally?
Thanx in advance
Do you see distortion with that target screen size with your current setup? If yes, then look at a curved screen. If no, then do not. You will actually introduce distortion. A curved screen is not aesthetic choice, it is used to remove distortion introduced with a lens in certain scenarios. I've seen a couple in older theaters. They do look impressive with the lights on. Once the movie starts, you no longer know it's curved.
Monoprice offers inexpensive flat scope screens (I have one). They have a 110" 2.35:1 screen.
