So much to comment on here.

I went to the Dolby...

Panamorph does make a CineVista mount specifically for the HW50. The projector can be either table or ceiling mounted.

Speaking for Panamorph, the CineVista will work with 4K, but with a high end projector like the VW1100ES it makes more sense to go with a high end lens. The lens GetGray suggested is an excellent...

As Jeahrens pointed out, a curved screen is used to remove anamorphic lens distortion in certain scenarios. If you mount the projector more than 3X the screen height back in the room, pincushion...

No, you are not really missing anything. Since most of his viewing is 16:9, most of the time he can leave the lens out of the light path. Cgott42 says he will watch Scope films maybe two or three...

Just to make sure everything will work properly -

You said you had an 18' throw. Is that correct? For the FVX200 you should be at about 4.3X the screen height. You said the screen is 51" tall,...

Hard to argue with this, and would agree 100% if we were talking typical list prices :) When the lenses in question are $200 - $500 it makes it a slightly harder call.

IMO.
