Well I don't have a whole lot of pluses to add, as Dennis and your Stewart contacts seem to have them all listed. But as an owner of a Stewart curved, 2.35:1 screen, I thought I'd tell you the reason I went with it.
I have a CRT projector (9pg extra) and wanted a 9' wide screen. Don Stewart, while encouraging me to go a bit smaller, recommended the curved screen and higher gain material if I was set on a screen that large.
I'm glad I went with the curved/higher gain material and the 9' width. I'm sure that HAD I gone smaller the image would probably have looked even better than it does now (which in my opinion is awsome.) But I've never had anyone, who has seen it, say that it was dim. Far from it, in fact. And this is running it with a only average brightness and contrast levels.
And yes the coolness factor of the curved 2.35 screen is incredible.
So, in conclusion, you might want to add something along the lines of: Larger screen widths can be used, because the curve helps eliminate some of the problems that using a high gain screen can cause. Especially with CRT projection.
Enjoy the show!
