Taking a poll just for fun...

Expecting to have the theater finished in October. My friends that know I am building one always seem to ask me the same question, "What is the first movie going to be?". I'm thinking it definitely has to be an "epic classic"... Added a few suggestions to a poll, all other suggestions welcome. Looking for something epic!

Is it for you or for a viewing party (with friends)? If just you/your family watch your favorite movie. If it's more of a viewing party then I'd suggest a newer flick with great A/V like Oblivion or Star Trek. Man of Steel maybe out by then too...

Yes, it will most likely be a view party but all that are included all agree, classic is the way to go. I'm sure the second movie will be something newer, I do like those suggestions. I have not seen Oblivion yet but it is at the top of my list.

Audio will not be as big as of concern as it will only be a 2.1 system in October. I went with B&W 803D for the mains knowing I would have to wait for center and surrounds.
