    Just crop the top and bottom and don't resize. Or crop, resize and change the pixel aspect ratio.

    So then you get what appears to be a wide screen.

    Or you could just provide everyone with a pair of glasses which have had their tops and bottoms taped up, to give that true widescreen feel without the hassle of shooting, coverting or editing in that format.

    That's my opinion. If you don't like it I have others
