Do they make the Tian in cinemascope format?
At the end of the day Reference becomes the better buy when you factor in that it has premium material which has much better color accuracy, as well as basically no texturing (meaning you will make full use out of your 1080p projector with a Reference screen, while you won't with a non-reference screen since the non-ideal textured materials blur the image a bit and cause pixel degradation and artifacting). Further, if in 5-10 years, you decide to purchase a projector which will be 4000 x 2000 resolution or higher by that time, you won't have to purchase another screen, because a screen with basically no texturing can accept infinite resolution, while ones that have texturing do not even display 1080p images perfectly, let alone something higher. The question is: will you be upgrading your projector in a few years - my personal opinion is that it is sort of like asking yourself whether you use a CRT tube monitor for your computer, or if you are using an LCD screen. If you do plan on upgrading (eventually down the road) the Reference screen is the much better buy - much better performance now and usability with future projectors.
As far as 2.35 aspect ratio screen, you can go to eastporters.com and fill in the contact us form with the exact size and aspect ratio you want. It won't be in stock because not too many people still buy 2.35 aspect ratio screens (especially when you look at the non-high end), but it would still arrive to you within a few weeks from order date.
