I've spoken to several dealers regarding "size" of screens. The basic equation (as communicated to me) suggests that the distance from the screen to your eyeball should be approximately 1.5:1 the width of the screen. My theatre will be approximately 14 x 19 and with normal furniure placement, I should go with an 82 wide screen. What would be the impact if i went to a 52 x 92 inch screen? It would change the viewing formula to about 1.25:1. Under the dealers guidance, they believe I'll experience head movement while watching a movie. Are they right? what about the people sitting in the front row in a convention movie theatre? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks, Jeff

How far will you be sitting from the 82" screen. I would recommend no closer than 12ft. I have an 84" at 12'.

Neil - thanks for your response. What are the dimensions of your theater? Do you have 2 or more rows of seats? After I spec the final layout for seats and sofa in my theatre, I'll send you another email.jeff
