Moving to constant height soon! One Question!

Will be moving in the coming months, and a key requirement will be a bigger screening room in a basement space properly suited to a scope screen.

My current screen (a 16:9 Carada Masquerade) is 117 inches wide.

If I wanted to maintain this width for 1:85 or 16:9 when projected on a 2:35 screen, how wide should that scope screen be?

CIH is a great method of presentation. The old advice of starting with a wall painted flat white and experimenting still is good advice IMO. Movie and TV cinematography IMHO are in a time of change and some people are setting up for more of a CIA constant image area presentation or even something that includes the IMAX and IMAX Enhanced movies like Dunkirk or Aquaman or TV shows like Game of Thrones or so many of the new 2.0:1 Prestige TV as some call it.

Greater immersion is growing.

Current screen is 16:9 and new screen will be 21:9. Since the height (9) will be the same the width is going in ratio from 16 to 21.


So width will be 117 inches divided by 16 times 21


or


153.5"

117 (your current width in inches) divided by 16 (your current width ratio 16:9) times 21 (wide screen ratio 21:9) =153.56" to go widescreen and keep your current 16:9 height.

editriginal poster beat me to it
