This isn't my personal screen, but it is the same size and style. Unfortunately, there are no people next to it to give it a sense of scale.

Well, that is a big picture. Not to argue, but that isn't a screen - it is the side of the house and those are not scan lines we see but the slats from the siding. It appears to be about 25' diagonal...

I have a Jaymar 351 that I think is comfortable. Not as nice as my Fortress seats, but I do like the Jaymar 351 they used on my single seat d-box.
