There is no such thing as a 96" 16:9 is there? I only ask because of space issue with the overall frame.

I found 16:9 format to be best, being in-between 2.35:1 and 1.33:1 format, but the fixed-height, variable width approach like the theaters is always appealing. Ideally.

Day 2 of searching for 16:9 96" diagonal ... still no luck... every site is either 4:3 format or 2:35:1..... I think its the dimensions..

Carada and many other companies will make a 96" 16:9 screen. Some companies make standard, but most will cut it down.
