Epson Pro Cinema 6040UB
Projector Specs
Projection Calculator
I am planning to purchase a cinemascope screen and an Epson 6040UB to do constant image height (59") using the memory presets.

I used the projector calculator to determine the throw ranges for both 16:9 and 2.35:1 screens. To ensure the projector is placed so I can convert between the two is it just the throw ranges that overlap?

For example the

16:9 11'10" to 24'10"
2.35:1 15'9" to 33'2"

So the range I have to work In would be 15'9" to 24'10"

Thanks

Yes, that's exactly correct.

I would shoot to be close to the middle of that range if possible. Avoid being right on the edge of any measurements if possible.
