They're pretty much as described.
The matinee black is darker and brighter(higher gain), with sharp viewing angles and more sparkle.
The matinee wide is less dark, less bright, with better viewing angles, and less sparkle.
Similar materials to consider:
XY Screens Black Crystal. Similar shade of grey as the matinee black, less gain than the matinee wide, similar sparkle to the matinee wide, better viewing angle than the matinee wide.
Screen Innovations Slate 0.8. Similar shade of grey as the matinee black, less gain than the matinee wide, less sparkle to the matinee wide, viewing angle like the matinee black.
DaLites Parallax 0.8. Similar shade of grey to the Matinee Black, similar brightness to the matinee wide, no sparkle(artifact free), good horizontal viewing angle, poor vertical viewing angle(rejects light from above it).
