I love the symmetrical, clean and 'un-complex' look of this HT.

Cheers,

Mine's a multi-purpose Room







It is "In Use" with regular 6-8 ppl audiences, but it isn't "finished".
I'm still tinkering (slowly). Amazing how a functioning theater can slow productivity.

20' x27' 9'3", At my last HT meet I put 70 people into three demo sessions. I think the way people are packed in made it look bigger.

Thanks Andy.
The stones are Eldorado Stone (brand). They make Artificial Stone veneer. They make em out of poured concreted in molds and then paint on the color.

So they feel and look real, but are not. They're heavy too, at about 12 to 15lbs per sqft. Those doors weigh anywhere from 300 to 400lbs.

Nice guys, especially Landshark Koach and Strangebrew, 3 of my favs around here. Landshark and Koach for the tan/black and Strange for his wall panels and pin striped fabric walls. I'm going to have to steal those ideas from you guys.

Wow, so many slick theaters here. I'd REALLY love to post mine but I just can't say it's finished until I get curtains around the room.

Great job everyone!

The carpet is made by {Mohawk} it is called {High Rise Retreat} and the color is {Ebony on Onyx}

It looks sort of black on grey in the pics but in real life it is light black on very dark black.

Hope this helps.

No the pictures aren't enhanced, I just got a new camera. It has an option to set the white balance in the room by taking a picture of something white in there. I set it to the white of the screen. I set color saturation to "Accurate" and the DRO setting to "High" to recover data in dark areas and this is how they came out.

However the first picture is closest to the real color of the room on my computer display, I dont know how it looks on other displays though.

I don't care how many of these threads there are. There are some amazing theaters folks on this site have put together. It's a hell of a hobby!
