I have read way too much about aspect ratio. I have confused myself. I bought a 2.35:1 ratio screen. Will 2.35:1 movies fill the screen from my Yamaha DPX 1100, or will I need a lens? I understand 16x9 will leave bars on the side. If this seems elementary, I apologize, just got very confused.

You will need to buy an after market anamorphic lens to take advantage of the 2.35:1 screen.

Set projector to zoom mode (to make everyone skinny) so it chops the black bars off and then use the anamorphic lens to desqueeze the image to fit the screen.
