I have an electric recessed 100" 4:3 screen and wish to make a second screen for dvd's.
I notice many discs are now available in 2.35:1 ratio.
So my question is:
Do I build a screen 45x80 or 35x80? (i'm leaning towards the 2.35:1).

If I were you, I'd spend your $$ and time on a variable masking system, that will give you much more flexibility than a new screen. All you really need to do is hide the letterbox bars, and there are dozens of great ways to do that in this forum.

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
