Does anyone know of any authoritative reference works or Web sites that give the size of an average cinema screen? Or perhaps a data source that could be used to compute a reasonable average, such as a database with a large number of screens and their dimensions?

NATO wasn't able to answer the question, and Googling "average movie screen size" gives a site in which someone guesses that it's 30x70 feet, which is of course laughable.

Thanks.

Jhyder,

What may I ask do you need the info. for? If you are calculating what screen size you need for theater; one of the many things I learned from the late John Pytlak was that ideal seat placement from the screen should be 2-4x the screen height . Then from there use your scope ratio to determine screen width.
