Just wondering on the seating choices and being too close to screen. Would only have room for 1 row of seating or perhaps a sectional.
MY current setup is in a 10x13x8 room, with a 120" AT screen on the 10' wall. Seating is ~9' eyes to screen. After about 6 months of movie watching, I'd say 120" would be the biggest I would go between 8-10' away. In scope (2.35:1), it's perfect. 16:9 is great most of the time, except some fast paced action scenes (don't recall specific ones) I found a bit hard to focus/concentrate sitting that close; I actually backed myself up to the back wall ~12' and found the same scene much more "comfortable" to watch.
