"Man, I wish I had such high ceilings. There's so much you could do, you could have multiple rows of tiered seating and you wouldn't have to worry about running into the ceiling, you don't have to worry about where the place your centre speaker so it won't interfere with the screen, oh I'm so jealous."
It's not as great as you might think. I have two rooms for HT that work on my house. One has 21 foot ceilings and one has 9 foot ceilings and it's a real problem if you don't want to drop the projector on a pole for esthetic reasons, or because you'd rather put a heavy CRT projector up there, which I'd certainly rather not want to hang from a pole. I believe that the ideal spot for the screen is about 2 feet up from the floor so that a seated viewer's eyes are about mid way up the widescreen. If you don't drop the projector, you end up placing the screen too high.
