As for ceiling height 12' tall is the sweet spot were you are getting far enough away to really get great coverage for the atmos speakers. Once on brackets the Atmos speakers are only 7' from the level of the seated heads. This is pretty much a no compromise design from the ground up. To make the ceiling lower or screen larger would be making compromises I don't want to make.
Of course I could put something above the screen to fill the space but it would be purely cosmetic.
It's perfectly fine you're not into it. There's theaters I don't like either but the performance comments are incorrect. How something ages is purely personal taste. If it's a theme you've always loved then for you it's not going to feel old in 5 years. I'm sure in 10 even 20 years there will still be medieval rooms and films being enjoyed.
I mean sure dude... but you asked what we think, I answered...
135" is still small to me particularly for the size of that room. But thats up to you.
According to this, the dimensions are not perfect they are on the limit ... What I meant to say is the ceiling being so large is likely to get close to having modes not as evenly distributed as they could be.
For that size ceiling this would be 'perfect'.
