I am recently single so I can make my own choices now lol, but I bought a house large enough for the things I love. I have a room empty that I was all excited about but realize it's not as large as I thought.. it's about 24'6" long but half is only 9'10" wide and it opens another 3 feet for the other half. The skinnier area is where I planned on putting a decent sized screen.but a 7 ft screen and 2speakers would cover the whole front wall. Would that seem ok? I could get a 70inch tv but that isn't really the movie experience I'm looking for. I could live with 80" but prices start cranking up. With the longer room I almost need three rows of loveseat sized seats so a bigger screen is needed.I could maybe do two.but then seems like empty space in a 24 foot room.. any ideas or tips?

That would help me get as big of a screen possible. I need to look at the room again. I'm only home on weekends.that's one reason I wanna do this right. If I can't make it work I have the rest of my basement..maybe 24'x40' but it is used as an apartment now.has a kitchen and stuff. Would be nice to use that as a bar/game area with a pool table.so hoping the 9'9" width can work
