I would put 6'-6" of distance from viewing distance of first row to second row. That way you could add reclining seats later if wanted. I would probably go with 12'-6" first row and 19' back row. First row would be the prime seats. You would be able to go with a 130" to 140" diagonal 16:9 screen. Once viewing distances are set, call and we can discuss what screen mounting heights and riser heights would work for you.

Added
You could also consider first row prime viewing for scope and second row prime viewing for 16:9.

Yesterday we brought new epson ls 10000 to our friend, did a quick setup and test - it gives very good picture and rich colors, however from first quick look I still like mine JVC X500R more how it shows the image, nevertheless we still need to do calibration and compare it then in my show room, we will update you on, also will provide some results. Just by now, friend is very happy as he had cheap version of not professional projector before and for sure this one made a huge difference to his experience.

wanted to update.. went with the sony 350. no one could confirm price or even ability to replace laser component. I am enjoying the sony 350 and just now learning how to use it. In my light controlled room it has no problem putting out a big screen pic. Interesting thing is my walls are a dark tan and have not even put up a screen yet as the picture does very nicely on this color wall..even in ambient light. I can post some pics if you guys wish.


thanks for all your help guys.

Just an update, we did calibration of LS 10000 previous weekends, a quick summary on all aspects
CMS on this projector was very close to REC 709 (HDTV) color gamut referenced points for Primary and Secondaries colors.
Color temperature was set to 6500K however measured returned almost straight line among 100% IRE with 7500K value.
Gamma wasn't so good and it was starting at 2.3 at 10% IRE falling down to 1.8 at 80-90% IRE.
This projector allows adjusting Gamma at all 8 points across 100% IRE so we didn't spend a lot of time calibrating it.
As already mentioned colors were very close to referenced one.

As for contrast, we set laser on HIGH setting and IRIS to best maximum contrast we could get and it was lower comparing to my JVC X500R (even with the 1260 hours watched on it)
LS 10000 was producing 9.457 ftL at 100% IRE WHITE and my JVC X500R after calibration 11.5 ftL.
Screen was Elite one with 1.0 gain (grey) and 120 inches.
Nevertheless we were satisfied with the projector performance, this projector needs to be calibrated 100% otherwise its contrast and gamma will be not so good and produce poor colors.

Pre-Calibration results:

Greyscale 100% IRE

RGB Levels:


Gamma:

After Calibration:

Greyscale 100% IRE
