Just joined this forum, so much great info here! We are in the process of building a home theater in our basement and are now researching projectors and screens. My husband and I are novices in this area, so any and all help is MUCH appreciated!

Our room size is: 14'8" wide and about 19' deep

We will have two rows of seating (4 and 4 or 4 and 3 - still undecided)

The doorway into the HT is an opening - no door and will only be covered by a curtain. We also have a boxed window that is open behind the seating that will have a counter bar height with seats - for the times when we have more people than the theater can hold. People sitting outside can look in and watch.

Given all of this, what kind of projector and screen do you all recommend? The little I have read talks about lighting coming into play if you don't have a completely dark room. We were considering just a flat screen TV, but Samsung is our chosen brand and they only make a 75" TV, with an 85" on the way, but no available date as of yet.

Not sure what our budget is yet, so send all recs regardless of price our way!

Thank you!
