I have several suggestions, but they all entail a lot of work, and I'm personally in a lazy " watch movies for awhile " phase myself. So I'll just keep quiet !

How about black velvet covered panels through the middle of the ceiling above the screen, or a black ceiling with painted or led stars! We can all dream, right?

Sort of what Danonano said - anything that is more non - reflective ( can you finish the wood " beams " matte / darker ) and less shiny.

I could but that would be secondary to the main culprit...the light colored coffer ceiling sections. Paint choice would be easiest since there are 4 Atmos speakers and 5 can lights. A fabric treatment would be difficult, especially with the speakers. Just need to figure out the color. I could do the same color as the beams but in flat which might look really good. I could also do flat black

Cheers,
Ray

I'm just seeing this post and I am in the same situation you were in. I have a 120" 16:9 screen and want a bigger impact for my movies without losing too much on my sports content. I was looking at the Cima Neve 2.35 screen at 158" (next largest after a 138"), using an old projector i had and throwing that size to review is almost too big. My front row seating is apx 12.5 feet. Having settled into your new screen for a while, is there anything you would have done differently? still happy with the large screen?? Your room is amazing by the way!!!

Thanks for the compliment!

I am still over the moon happy with my choice. It is, as Don pointed out, the perfect ratio for the room. I do NOT see the unused space (apparently that drives some people crazy) when watching 1:78 media and am still blown away at the picture (size) when watching 2:35/2:40 media. I went with the 152" since they can cut any size you want and it is exactly the size I wanted for the room. In my opinion, perfection!
Craig Peer and howiee like this.

Cheers,
Ray

Is your 120" 16:9 screen a fixed screen? Maybe keep it, and add a wider 2.35:1 screen in front for the best of both worlds, like I did.
