    I've noticed you can purchase projection screens in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Are there lenses you can attach to digital front projectors that would make watching 1.85:1, 1.78:1, and 1.66:1 aspect ratios possible on these w i d e screens? I think it would be ideal if the "black bars" for these films were on the sides, so you could just use a nice curtain to mask the sides. Does this make sense?

    Thanks! I knew there had to be something like that, this is exactly what I was looking for. [​IMG] Now, how much are these suckers? haha. In any case, when I'm ready for this, I'll just have to find an expert to guide me through and install it all. I don't want to mess around. Thanks again.
