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

Fun to see how small HDTV's are compared to front projection !

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!

I won't be happy until I have a room that allows a true cinema size screen like the one pictured. When I go to the theater there is something magical about a movie on a really large screen. At home sitting closer to your screen to occupy the same field of vision is not the same.

I'm going to need a bigger house for that. And a divorce attorney ( there went the money for the bigger house ) !

Craig what is the width of your screen. I am limited to 11.5 wide, not bad. As for the giant screen I can only dream:)

Which one ? I have a 122" diagonal 1.78:1 screen ( Stewart Cima Neve ) and a 128" diagonal / 118" wide 2.35:1 StudiotTek 130. I blame you for becoming addicted to a bright image. 18.5 FL for Blu-ray, 38 FL for 4K.  10' seating distance. If only I could afford the Super Lumis stack !

You have the space to move your wall on the right side out a few feet, do you not? I think you could make it so that you could put a 15' wide screen in there, pretty easily.

Cant do Mike but I could get creative in other parts of the downstairs to max a 15 footer. What keeps me from doing this is cost just to gain 3 feet.

Craig youve got quit the setup. Looking good.

Pretty happy with my theater. The projector closet remains my other best decision !





But you've got a separate projector room, even better !
