Dan - I read an article somewhere on home theater design and they said in a perfect world you should try to locate the center of the screen at your eye level.
The main point was if it is too high you will get a stiff neck from looking up, too low from looking down.
Of course there are lots of other considerations, like speaker placement, throw distance, ceiling height, screen size, how it looks on the wall......
Also when you sit to watch a movie you tend to recline back in your chair or couch a little bit, which may make the ideal placement slightly higher than your eye level.
In my case - 100" diagonal, 1:1.85 screen 28" off the floor.
I put some tape on my wall in the rough shape of a screen and looked at it to try out the placement.
Sounds like you are close to getting your system together.
HAVE FUN!!! Reed.
