Thanks so much! No, I haven't been on the forum much in the last six months because work and life have kept me super busy.
1. How do you like the screen size? Would you have gone smaller or bigger if you could?
I think the screen size is perfect for the size of the room. I sit exclusively in the back row, but I've had multiple people over and they've had no complaints about sitting in the front row, even with 2.35 material.
2. What Seating is that? Can you provide the link?
It is Seatcraft Rialto seating. It's not high end; made in China, but so far no problems with it. It's comfortable, and I've spent entire days in there watching sports without any problems. Only complaint is that the cupholders are a little shallow - a glass of wine or a pint glass can be easily knocked out by an errant hand (and this has happened several times!).
3. Family Reaction To the Theater: How does your wife and son like it? How often do they want to use it?
We all love it. My wife does not use it as much. But my son and I are in there virtually every day, either playing xbox or watching sports. Sundays are particularly bad this year, as I wake up at 7 am, start watching English soccer games, and then watch American football all afternoon. We are unfortunately not watching as many movies as I'd like to, mainly because my work has been so exhausting recently that I go to sleep too early to get an entire a movie in. And then of course Sundays are taken over by sports! But with winter approaching, I think that will change. We do watch television shows down there too, and it is quite spectacular.

5. Where are you subwoofers located?
The two large cylinder subs are behind the screen, in between the speakers. They just sit on the floor.
