Without an anamorphic lens he would have to first set up the projector so the !6:9 image is centred on the screen and at the full height of the screen..That then leaves black bars each side of the image which can easily be masked if required..
Then to get the 2.35:1 image to fill the screen would just require zooming ..No black bars top, bottom or sides..
One of the advantages of having an anamorphic lens..no zooming required!
Ah, gotcha. Since the 2000 has a manual zoom, I was presuming he wouldn't want to be zooming and un-zooming depending upon the movie.

Re: 235:1 or 16x9

FYI, Mitsubishi's HC3800 and HC4000 have an Aspect button on the remote that downsamples 16x9 content to the center of a 2.40:1 screen. Accounting for crop, the effective resolution is 1920x800 for 2.40 and 1420x800 for 16x9. It's simple and quick, and to my mind, an effective alternative to an anamorphic lens.
