Think of a panning scence effect where a train enters on the right side, goes through the center and leaves on the left. In this setup you are going to loose all the illusion the film mixers recorded in the FX sound tracks coz the effect will collapse right in the middle only moving a bit to right/left.
Dunno if there is any other location in your room for a much better speaker setup, but its definitely advisable to experiment with wider location of LRs a bit. How about your surround placement?
Hope I could be helpful.
