I want to buy the perfect drop down screen, with the best perforations allowed by physics, the largest screen allowed by my room, and ideally future proof for 3D and 4k. Budget is not a constraint. Projector (currently a Pioneer Elite) is not a constraint (since I can upgrade now or later).
Room is multipurpose, 22' wide x 39' long. Front wall has a Plasma for day watching, a drop down screen for night/blinds-down watching. Back of the room has a pool table, fireplace etc. Pool table needs ~14' of space. I want my speakers (MBL 111es) ~3' from the front wall to allow them to breathe. Therefore, there is 39-3-14 = 22' of space for the drop down screen and 2 rows of seats.
In that 22' of space, screen will drop down 4' from the front wall, first row will be 12' and second row will be 18' from the screen. Would love your ideas on...
1. Perfect size? I think it should be 130" diagonal which is 113" wide in 16:9 format. Could I go larger? Should I go smaller since the first row is only 144"
2. Perfect Format? Default is 16:9. In a drop down screen, is there any masking option if I were to go with a 2.25:1
3. Perfect perforations? Research indicates Stewart is the leader here. But Microperf or CinemaPerf? Or is there some other maker I a
4. 3D, 2D or both?
My desk research is pointing me towards a Stewart, 130", 16:9, 5-D Silverscreen. What do you think?
