I'll add my vote to the try it first crowd. I ended up at 110" from a 9.5-10' viewing distance. Others like bigger, but I found anything bigger than this too large. It took me 4 or 5 movies to...

That's what I'm counting on. Fortunately for me, I'm coming off an old RP with so so blacks and contrast, so its a step up all round for me.

116" is in the middle of the range at 11 feet. You can get up to a 131" screen with full zoom. That's still not 144" though.

That's exactly what I was thinking of doing to minimize damage to the wall. :)

I have a painting on that wall already, so maybe I'll just make sure to run the raceway behind it. Great idea!
