It was in a regular theater that I watched Skyfall, but having not been in a theater for awhile I noticed the screen is curved which is very awesome, and as great as my projector is, my room is not big enough to have the size of the screen.

I'm hoping once I work on my sound system, half the experience will be there.

Only problem is I have an Epson 8350 which is 16:9 native and so it isn't as good as Panasonic's AE7000/8000's 2.35:1 ASR lens.

So can I still get a curved screen?

I was looking at getting a curved screen but they are designed to be used with a anamorphic lens to address the pin cushion effect. Without the lens the picture will have some distortion. In the end I decided to get a flat screen as I have a long throw which reduces the pin cushion effect so I can still add a lens in my system if I chose to. When my JVC RS55 comes I'm going to try zooming first to see if I like the picture quality.

There are a lot more knowledgeable members than me and you'll find more information on the constant height forum (CIH).

Interesting.

When I go to cinemas that have big curved screens I come home glad mine isn't curved. The curved screens look...well...curved. I notice it. And they are curved in order to ameliorate certain problems. If you don't have such issues, no need for a curved screen. I find a flat screen more natural.

I just rebuilt my flat screen into a curved screen and I like it.

I haven't constructed the new mount for my Panamorph 480 so I've just watched a couple of movies with it zoomed and it looks pretty cool to me. I don't notice any distortion.

It was pretty easy to do. I posted a little build thread in the DIY constant height forum.
