I'm surprised that so many people don't have masking on a 2.35:1 screen. Even movie theatres have curtains that handle masking. I'm perhaps a-typical, but masking was part of the consideration when I was designing my home made 2.35:1 screen, not an after thought.
My screen frame is aluminum. I wish it had built in magnets. I already have the velvet.

If using an AT screen, then make a frame and cover with black AT fabric. In a light controlled room, it completely hides the un-used portion of the screen.

Seems easy enough to make the panels but how do you attach the panels if not using magnets?

You can use velcro tape squares if you have a frame that can accommodate it. I have velvet covering pink foam board which I attach to the bottom of a 16:9 for 2.35 films and use lens shift and zoom to move the image up. Makes a huge difference for complete immersion.

You could also use Gatorboard from a craft store covered in Protostar material, with Velcro.

So shortly I'll be getting away from high power to go acoustically transparent. I've always used the cheapy Samsung 3D glasses for $20 a pair. Will I need to get the $180 JVC glasses now, or is there a cheaper alternative?

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
