I decided on a curved screen for two reasons...
1. I like the extra immersion afforded by a curved screen
2. I have a lumen challenged (LED) projector in the Runco Q750i and my room is only 3ft wider than my screen so I dont have to worry about viewing cone.

Re: Jamestown curved screen

Congrats on the new screen. I will be ordering AT 2.35 but not sure if it should be curved or straight. Very interested in your opinion once you get it up & running. BTW what is "viewing cone"?

I got the projector and lens hung yesterday and all I can say is wow! The image is absolutely amazing and I am truly glad I went curved. My pincushon is less than half of 1 percent in the corners. Also to watch a movie and hear the sound come from behind the screen was amazing. We watched Kung Fu Panda and there is a part where Po pushes a cart across the screen with a squeaky wheel and the sound seemed to stay with the cart as it moved across the screen. I love it. Also I have to add that Runco, XEIT Optics, and Cineslide all make fantastic products which compliment this great screen. As soon as I figure out the key to taking good screenshots I will post a few.

Re: Jamestown curved screen

Wow that is more curve than I thought they would have. So no way a regular projector will focus across that' will it. So unless you use a lens then the curve does not work. But I talk to the owner of Jamestown and he said 2.35 movies though a regular projector no lens will work. I could see a curve half that would maybe work for a non lens setup.

Was a little afraid when I put it together that i would either be unable to get it focused properly or the excessive curve would be distracting but I was wrong on both accounts. I have perfect focus corner to corner and the curve makes the image pop really well. I am using an anamorphic lens though.

Re: Jamestown curved screen

Thanks for your reply. My question I guess was without the anamorphic lens then focus will not work. Have you tried it without the lens to see. Their is also another company called silver ticket screens that sell curved sreens also on Amazon. They get great reviews and have many instock for a great price, Thanks Bob

I have tried 16x9 content and it looks fine but I have not zoomed out a 2.35 movie to fill the screen

Re: Jamestown curved screen

If its not to much trouble could you see how 2.35 movies will look without using a lens. Right now I watch 2.35 movies on a Carada 1.78 screen. I len shift the pic down to bootom edge and mask the top' so no bars. I mostly watch 2.35 movies so I want to get a bigger screen. Do I really need one. NO. But the bug has bitten, My 110in is 96in wide. I have room to go to about 130 wide not counting the frame. So I guess it would be worth it. Thanks Bob
