I tried resurrecting an existing thread but nobody responded so I am quoting from my previous/original post from last week here:
Resurrecting this thread...
I saw Godzilla v Kong last night in a Regal RPX theater. By my calculations FOV at my seat was 70ish degrees but seemed fine to me.
in process of designing my second theater which will have 2 rows of seats about 11-11.5 feet from the screen (chosen to avoid room nulls) with second row 6 feet behind first row.
Currently planning a 140” DIY 16:9 spandex screen which yields FOVs of:
1st row 47.7 to 49.6 (11.5 vs 11 feet)
2nd row 32.4 to 33.3
Most of our viewing is streaming movies, series, etc. some sports and some blu-rays (maybe more blu rays in my future with the new theater and 4k projector)
Almost wondering if I should simply make sure i make the front row at 11 feet back from screen and keep it right at 50 degrees or if i should maybe go up in size. My last theater front row was about 44 degrees and though nice i do t think bigger would have been any problem
