I need to know if the large screen you see in the big theatre's are the only option available. As I had mentioned earlier, I am interested in doing a theatre pub but would like to not have the high ceilings with chairs but rather a more lounge type setting with a smaller room. What are my options, is this even a possibility?

For the more intimate pub type setting you are considering, I would maximize the screen in scope, and use moveable side masking only. This will allow seating to be placed somewhat closer without the picture overwhelming the space. Also, the ceiling height can be reduced.

The two commonly used 35mm print formats today have aspect ratios of 1.85:1 ("flat") and 2.39:1 ("scope"). So if you decide on having a screen 10 feet high, the 1.85:1 format will be 18.5 feet wide, and the scope format will be 23.9 feet wide. Smaller screens would have the same proportions.

I used to hang out in a screening room that had 8' ceilings. The screen in scope was 4 1/2' tall by about 11' wide. That room sat 11 people. Boy was the picture sharp.

First figure out how tall the room is. Then figure out the lowest the bottom of the screen can go so that heads aren't in the way and that people cant cut off the image when they go to the bathroom. Subtract the second number from the first. That is about how tall your screen can be. Then multiply the screen hight by 2.35 and that is how wide the screen can be.

Screen companies can make screens any size you want. I have been recently quoted a per square foot cost of between $2.25-$2.75.
