The bulk of the viewing will be done from the first row.
I would first decide on how many seats I really needed.
I would have considered the use of an acoustically transparent screen, and that would eat up some room depth (visually).
I also wouldn't be shoving the seating back too far, as some breathing room off the back wall is a good thing. Being 4-5 feet,
off the rear surround speakers, is a nice luxury.
At 7'2" of height, I would be thinking two rows. And if that third row was to be seriously considered, then I start looking at where the projector
lands, for whatever screen size, so it doesn't end up in the head room of the second row.
14x26 is a pretty nice space to have, which means there might be opportunities to build inwards. The height isn't ideal, and the
width is pretty much double, which isn't ideal. So depending on your seating needs, that might mean an opportunity to build inwards also.
