Thanks to many of you on this forum for the help you have given me over the past 6 months designing and answering my questions. I am proud to say my first 2.35:1 theater (first theater actually) is now officially complete. I did all the work myself with the help of my wife on the curtains and screen. Click on my signature to be linked to my construction thread for this theater if interested.
