Came here via one of your posts in the Atmos threads, we were musing the next generation of AVR's...
Anyway, I haven't read this entire thread but from what I have it looks like a great screen!
I have a SMX AT screen, at the time Rueben was not making curved units, I bought mine material first with the intentions of making a frame then with other commitments decided to by one of his frames as well, it too is a 2.35:1 CIH unit with the same dimensions as yours.
I recall that you curve is 39.7 ft, IIRC Rueben made his about the same at 40 ft, is this how you decided the curve and what distance is the projector from the screen?
Sorry for all of the 'I's, but at one point I had considered seeing if I could bend the aluminium extrusion to the curve, I am pretty sure that is how he did them, just not sure who would have a roller system that could achieve this...
BTW, I too am waiting a bit for the Atmos AVR thing to settle out...
