I don't know why you wouldn't be able to go with an AT screen; especially if you go with something close to a 1.0 gain. I've had both a regular screen and AT and I don't think non-direct light had...

144" at 12.5 feet with kids sitting in front of that would be a pretty big screen. You may want it that big, but the 110-120 might work better for you. Plus that would give you more breathing room...

I have a 2.35:1 screen. I think watching 16:9 content like TV makes me enjoy the 2.35:1 movies even that much more. I play all my movies through my HTPC so if I have a 16:9 movie that I really want...
