I have exactly the same room dimensions+6" width but a entry at the front. Screen size best I got with my towers on the sides is 91" wide 2.37. If you went AT you could do a 10' screen if the speakers are behind it. Really depends what you want out of it. What are your seating distances?

Well my goal is 10" screen 13-14' and 19-20' seating distances. Any closer than that is too close in my opinion some like it closer. Someday with the right room.

Well, because you said your screen was 10 inches. (By typing 10" instead of 10').

I say you go with a 25' wide screen, and 10' seating distance.

I think I'm going with a 104" diag. 2.35 screen for my 26 by 15 appox room. Seating is 15 feet back for the 1st row and about 19 feet for the back row. This will give me an 8' wide screen.

That is pretty far back. 8' wide is 3.375' high (8 / 2.37 = 3.375) and you don't want to be sitting any more that 4x the image height which is 13.5' for the back row.

I would look at increasing the screen size...

Here's a good screen size calculator. Just to put in some values and test.
