okay projector i have is an Epson 8350 and in the market for a screen 106/120 either or.

I was considering a jamestown or elite fixed.

I have been reading regarding the 2:35.1 and black bars so i need some help. If a buy a fixed screen and play a movie that is 2:35.1 the movie will be displayed below the black border and the width of the picture will bleed over the the left and right borders is this correct?


I was under the impression that 2:35.1 would just display the black bars under the frames border if this is so i can manage. I mite go electric if this is the case


does anyone have any pics of a 2:35.1 movie displayed on a 16x9 screen so i could get a visual of it.

2.35 movie on a 16:9 screen will have black bars projected on the screen above and below the movie material.

16:9 or HDTV content displayed on a 2.35 screen will need to be zoomed for height and will end up with black bars on the sides of the image but still on the screen.

2.35 material on a 2.35 screen will be zoomed for height and will project the same black bars, but they will be displayed on the frame edge and surrounding area.

With an 8350 and a 2.35 screen you would have to manually zoom the projector when going back and forth between 16:9 and 2.35. This means you would physically need to be able to get to the lens shift and zoom ring on the projector. Kind of frustrating to do without power functions on the projector.

No problem. Would hate to see someone buy a 2.35 thinking they could easily do CIH and then find out they made an expensive mistake.
