Here is my set up. I've got a LCD, NEC LT156 and I project typicaly in 4:3 at about a 1000 lumens. I plan on getting a permwall 68x92. I'd like to stick with this size so I could scale down to 16:9 movie and use some type of masking. The ambient light control is fairly well, it is a finished basement with glass block and heavy shades, however we normally watch movies at night where ambient light is not a concern. We sit about 20-25 feet away from the screen. My question is should I go with a Dalite hich contrast (.8 gain) or the new (1.1 gain) Cinema Vision High contrast. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

mathmaticly your fine with either. Even using the .9 gain that still ~20ftl even cutting that in half with something like a contrast filter that people have been talking about your still fine for a dark room.
