Recessed the AT screen, and I shortened the circulation path to the bedroom.

I was just looking through the last page of your build here and noticed you've posted a lot unanswered. Just wanted to say nice job. I like seeing the progress shots.
Your screen wall is 14' wide, if I'm reading your diagram properly. I think a 96" wide 2.35 might be too small. If you keep it at that size, though, I would say your seating would be ok pushed forward. If you bumped your screen to 110", you'd be pushing it. Generally, your screen width to distance from screen ratio should be about 1.25, and never less than 1. I have mine at 1.2, and many people say "it's almost too big" when they see it at first. Of course, like most big TV's, you get used to it after awhile and it's perfect. YMMV, but the 1.25 is a good target to aim for.
I have low ceilings, like you, and a 2.35 screen made more sense because it's short/wide, unlike a 16:9 screen with is tall/narrow. If it were up to me, I'd keep the jive seats a little off the back wall (a foot or so) and make your screen bigger. That's just my opinion. :)
Keep up the good work!
