Seating and speaker positions should be based on the dimensions of the room so as to diminish the effect of room modes. Once the seating positions have been set, they should not be modified or else the sound will be compromised. The screen size should then be dicated by the seating positions and not the other way around (at least if good quality sound is of any importance).

Ok.

Build a wall and sit closer ;)

This was really done tounge in cheek.

I do a little test whenever I go to the mega-huge-plex-stadium-digital-laser-#40-Ball-Bearing theater. I extend my arm out in front of me all the way, and I 'measure' the size of the screen. In most cases, the screen is rarely 'larger' than my 80" wide screen in my home theater. Theaters are really bad this way. If you sit on the front row, it's really big. Too big. Sit on the back row and the screen's too small. Way too small.

It's all about your perspective.

duell,
I've always liked to sit about 1/3 of the way back or even a little closer to the screen in theaters . This distance is comfortable and more immersive without being "too close". I like this same feeling in my HT so I sit in my front row although the middle row was designed as the sweet spot.

while i'm deciding on what projector to get, i discovered that if i pop a dvd into my dvd drive on the computer and put my nose next to the screen, it's almost like being in a theater. A good quality picture that looks BIG!
