Here is a link to a handy website, where you can compare screen sizes -

It is fun to see just how small a " big " 75 inch HDTV would be next to a 120" screen.  :)

Had a friend telling me " but I have a 65" TV ". Of course, when you watch a 2.35:1 movie on that 65" TV, it looks like this, compared to my 128" 2.35:1 StudioTek 130 -

It is so hard to enjoy a movie on our 4k 65" set since the 195" HT us torn down. I can't wait until I move, and build a new HT,

Yep, it is easy to go from a TV to a front projector and grin from ear to ear, but tough to go from a front projector back to a TV.

Thanks for the link Craig. I'm a math guy, but this website has made it much easier to compare and contrast dimensions and areas of various screen sizes. The visual is awesome too. Great website!
