I've spent more than one happy evening dozing in there myself!

Note: combining a bar and a home theater is dangerous combination (never mind the candy counter.)

I find the theater a great place for an afternoon nap! Quite and out of the way.

To those of you with all individual seating in your theaters...

don't you ever want to just lay down while watching a movie? Kick back on a couch? Maybe sit close to the wife? I know 'real' theaters don't have couches, but isn't a home theater an opportunity to improve on that?

My theater is just a projector and a sectional and some low tier sony surrounds, but I don't think I could manage if the sectional didn't have the dual seat in the middle.

Our original plan called for an option with a loveseat/recliner combo... but our room just wasn't wide enough to do it with a 4 seat row. Just one of the trade-offs we had to make. No regrets, but it would have been nice to have at least a loveseat somewhere in the theater.

Yeah, mine is not really wide enough at 159" either so we gave up one of the side aisles to fit in a 120-130" 2nd row of seating. We can get a 4 seat with love seat in this width - or something. Theater not quite done yet and have not bought the seats yet but will get the 4 seat w/love seat or maybe 2 loves seats for the back row. I would like the 2nd walkway but the way we watch movies we had to have the extra seating and love seat...

Jamis, I am also doing a bar like yours fo rthe 3rd row. Does your granite span from side to side or is there a center support?

Incredible home theaters and an excellent thread.

I feel encouraged to make my HT nicer and discouraged by all the incredible work that's been done by so many talented people (so much more talented than myself!)

Here are a few of mine.....sorry the pictures are dated and not great quality. I am in the process of bringing together a plan for a remodel (walls, carpet, seating)....there are a lot of great ideas in this thread!!!!. I currently have 2 couches and the wife loves them but I want the theater look.

Looking in from back room (poker table, darts, fireplace), slot has since been replaced with popcorn machine

I don't think it curves. Just some camera trickery. Look at the last photo. Blew my mind the first time I saw it too!

DevonS is right. It is a stitched together pic which makes it look a lot larger than it actually is. The last pic is more representative of the room. I plan to take some new pics once I get the speaker fabric changed on my columns (it will match the new wall acoustic panels (not pictured)).

Some of us are just DIY weekend guys. Takes a lot of time and some re-dos, but it is fun. And the results are even more fun to use.

My small bedroom setup.

I have turned my a spare bedroom in my house into a dedicated theater room. It is basically completed, except for some better black shades that need to cover a few windows, and of course some black masking I need to put on the walls, but I can do that later. For now though I can finally say that I have a dedicated theater room in my house. I still have my Mitsubishi HC6500 projector setup in the living room, and it gets plenty of use. But I always wanted a dedicated room, just for movie watching.

Thanks for everyone's help and advice. I decided to go with the following setup.

My projector is bookshelf mounted, rear of the room, near a closet. The screen is a little more than 12 feet away. A short throw and setup, but it does work for me.

Projector: Marantz VP11S1
Screen: Elite EZ Frame 92 inch Fixed screen (cinema white 1.1 gain)
Sources: Pioneer BDP-05FD blu-ray player, Sony BDP-S350 blu-ray player, Directv HD DVR, Panamax M5100-PM Surge Protector/Power Conditioner, Yamaha RXV663BL receiver.
