Popcorn Machine Question
Greetings. This is home theater related but not specifically AV. My new theater is under construction. Due to the shape of the room we had to build a wall in the back corner that leaves some empty space which will be wasted. I had considered putting a popcorn machine in the theater but we decided to pass as my wife didn’t like the aesthetics. I had the idea of building a recessed cubby in the wall for the machine and then covering it with soundproofing or wall art on a hinge to hide it when not in use. A few questions:
1. Is this a bad idea?
2. Do these machines get hot to the touch? Would I need clearance around the machine?
3. Do you think I would need to vent the machine above or would opening the door be sufficient?
4. Any recommended models? I was looking at Great Northern or Paragon.
5. Should I do 4 oz or 8 oz. We are a family of 4 and my theater will seat 9. Would like to host friends for sports/movies.
Thanks for any help you have.
