16x9 is fine for TV and gaming. Movie theaters don't have dark grey bars above and below the image, why would you?

Maybe because (like many of us) he doesn't have an extra grand or two to convert his projector into a 2.35:1 fixed height image.
Go with 16x9. It's the standard for all tv's, it's the standard for HDTV, and it's the starting point for widescreen movies. Yes there is a compromise for movies with wider aspect ratios, but it is the best option short of an expensive lens conversion/fixed height system.
