    I think curved screens for sizes that are too small and too far away are pointless and nothing but a gimmick. 150" is probably the starting point that might give curved screens some merit.

    If your projector requires a curved screen because it has field curvature, be sure to get the right one. Otherwise, you’ll just have a fancy curved screen and a blurry image.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I want to go with a 180" size, but it is just a bit too big. I keep thinking of the 2:35 aspect ratio film, and thinking it would be fantastic for that purpose.

    I decided against it. I would always be dreaming of what could have been with the 180" size.
    My room is just 5 inches smaller than what is needed for that size, and paying well over $1K for something less than what I want isn't going to happen. I am going house hunting in a few years, and room that can support the size screen is up there in my desired needs!
