Thx for the reminder about 2x image height. My 150" screen is going to be 59" high so that would be 9'8". I should be able to get pretty close to that (maybe 9'6").

I see what you mean now. I really don't think the front row will be too large. I would be concerned with a 150" in 16:9 at 9' viewing distance but from what I saw on my test, it's going to be...
