Let's clarify exactly how you're getting to "full screen".
1. Are you clicking the green button in the upper-left corner of the LR window:
2. Are you giving one of the commands in the menu Window > Screen Mode, or typing one of their shortcuts?
(You could be doing both 1 and 2 or either one.)
I am using your 2nd possibility: menu Window, screen mode, full screen, hide right and left control panels.
Unfortunately the full screen presentation with LR is significantly smaller than with iPhoto presentation. It seems as LR does not rmake use of the 27" display.

I think you're also in Library's View > Loupe mode (viewing a single photo). That does indeed put a margin around the photo.
Try this instead: In Library, do Window > Screen Mode > Full Screen Preview (shortcut F). That should fit the photo to the screen, with black margins on the sides of the dimension that are too short.
I always find all these different modes and their placement in the menus too confusing, but I use Full Screen Preview extensively.
Thank you very much for your response. By using the LR full screen preview I now have the same full screen presentation as with iPhoto. Thanks a lot for your support!
