Let's try this... A 2.35:1 100" diagonal, (you didn't specify diagonal or width), screen will be 92" wide. With that you have a starting point for how much wall space you might need. Of course then you have throw distance brightness calculations, ceiling/mount height, and several other things to consider before you can say if the setup will work. Since we're talking about 2-4 years in the future I think you will best be served by reading lots more in these forums and checking out the setup of other people... you'll learn a lot and I think you'll have no trouble answering these questions on your own when the time comes.
I've seen pics of custom 2.35 CIH setup's. so awesome, one of my dreams--but i know it wouldn't happen.
so, these are some of the basic ideas.
3D? no, gtfo.
16:9? must be 16:9
max screen size--Width: 80 to 110, Height: 30-40.
also, can one of the dvdo scalers be used to simulate 2:35, but without the Expensive
are there any projectors that output 2.35, and are not too much and does NOT have 3D?
open to suggestions.
