Real cinemas do just that, place their L and R speakers just inside the limits of the 1.85:1 frame so that the side masking curtains do not block the sound. But a real cinema is also about 60 to 80 feet wide, so is OK. In the home it is said that good imaging for stereo is between 6 and 8 feet, so this might still work for you. My L and R speakers are 8 feet apart, and they image very well at that distance...

My plan was to have an AT screen 10' wide with all three front speakers behind the screen. With this set-up I most likely will have to move the speakers closer together because I will be using drapery to mask the screen for 16x9 material.
My overal width of the room is 13'
My dilemma is this, should I put all three speakers closer together so that they fit in the 8' area for 16x9...
