I was being lazy didn't feel like calculating....
So that's (If my math doesn't fail me) 130.75"x73.5" = 66.75 sqft. Oddly enough, that's almost exactly the same area as a 2.35:1 150" wide screen (66.5 sqft).
So anyway, unity gain would be about 1000-1100 Lumens for 16ftL. 1.8 gain would be about 600.
I am currently using the InFocus 7210 and was waiting for the 8602 to show up... but the preliminary numbers from Art don't look to promising for it to be the "typical" InFocus light cannon. Unfortunately I only have about 20' maximum for throw distance which eliminates the IN83.
According to PJC it "only" needs 20'2" to throw a 150" image.
Yeah, it will be interesting to see, if he got some demo unit that had quite a few hours on it, ie if the brightness had dropped already, that 600-750 would be about perfect for you.
Still waiting to see what comes up with BenQ's W6k and its iris issue, the Epson 8500, and/or AE4k. It would appear from early information that the BenQ W6K would be the most promising on a big screen... if they WILL fix the iris issue. BenQ did come up with a firmware fix for the W5k, which gives me hope that they will follow through on the W6k also.
FWIW, I don't see the W6000 being any brighter once calibrated. PJC got about 600-700 Lumens calibrated when they reviewed the W6000.

HD material looks stunning, but DVD is a mess.
I'm using my PS3 as DVD player and i also tried with my Cambridge DVD player through HDMI with same results. Been messing around with settings in the PS3 menu like RGB to YcBCr and scaling on/off, nothing works.
I got a feeling its something to do with the colorwheel..
Is the output format different for DVD than Blu-ray/HD? Or are you using a different source?
