We are currently making a home theater in our house, and I want to make it a 2.35:1 screen.
But, I need a lens for the projector.

I dont really know how much these lenses cost or where to get them. I looked and couldn't find it.
Could you help me out?

*lowest price please.

Most of the 'scope lenses that are DIY use Prisims and such. Just search for DIY Anamorphic and you will find plenty of plans and info for this.

Hmmm, could you adapt a 35mm projector front 'scope lens attachment? They were made to screw onto the regular, spherical projection lens. They are easily available on ebay for less than $100.

So you're putting a 35mm film projector in your house for movie night? :blink:

Well in that case, you have no need of an anamorphic projector lens. Any material coming from a tape, DVD, or blu-ray will have a set width and the height of the picture will vary (and be letterboxed), depending on the aspect ratio.

This is different from a movie theater where 1.85 and 2.39 projection both have the same height and different widths.
