I learned this evening that you can have too big of a screen.

I recently picked up a new projector for 1080P off a job I did for someone, and I was setting it up and decided I'd try to go a little bigger than I had on my last screen. I set up a 140" anamorphic screen and honestly, the damn thing is too big. During conversations in movies, I find myself looking to the left and to the right rapidly. I've moved the couch further back to compensate, but I think I'm either going to have to get some new furniture or just switch out to a little smaller of a screen. Anyone on here have a 100-120" screen and looking to go bigger that might want to trade out?

You could try looking through some binochulars(sp?) backwards. Then you can move your couch closer.
