What projector is good for my 127" 2.35:1 screen Throw distance 15'6"

As you can see in the picture the rear part of my room is 9'6" while the front is 20'. My first question is what is a good projector for this setup with a throw distance of 15' 6". Second question would I have issues because my rear part of the room is narrow? My budget is
2.8K and I will be using the Lumagen Radiance in-case you need that information. In the picture every square is 1 feet. You see that the projector is way behind, but I would not be able to install it there since I'm having a mini split AC install in the back.


Thanks in advance

I'm thinking the Epson 5020.

With any 2.35:1 setup, you want either an anamorphic lens on a sled ($$$) or you want a projector which has lens memory and a motorized lens so that it can easily switch between 2.35 and 1.78 modes. The poor-mans CIH setup is fine, but has sacrifices in brightness and quality which should be recognized by anyone who wants to go down that road.

I would go for the Panasonic AE8000 or the JVC DLA-RS46 both of which can be had for under $3,000 and should do what you are after. The Epson 5020, to my knowledge, does not deliver on the motorized zoom front and would not be in my list of choices.
