I am not sure if this applies to you.. but I look at it this way. I want the largest screen possible.
So, for me, i'll see where the limitations is.. is it the height of the place or the width.. i'll go as large as is possible... for instance if you have a very wide room, but your ceiling isn't very high, then go scope.... so, even at scope your screen is from 20 inches above ground all the way up to almost the ceiling... so, when you're watching 16:9 that's the largest 16:9 you could get anyways...
In my case, my width is limited.. so i went with 16:9, which, when watching scope movies, it'll be the 'longest' as well (as if i chose scope to begin with).
I really like the immersive experience, so sitting near, with as large a screen in front of me as possible..
Plus, I believe there will be more and more movies in 16:9 eventually.. like Avatar 16:9 3D is just awesome if you have a screen in 16:9 format wall to wall, floor to ceiling...
