Awesome theater CTsan. I like your floorspace. If I could have removed one window in my room I could have opened up my floorspace considerably. I hope to be able to possibly take the window out of the equation sometime this summer.

No basements here in Japan but I did have a dedicated room included when my building my vacation home here. Room itself is 14x22, pretty decent size as it works perfect for the 126" Carada screen.

Thanks Matts.

I too wish I could have moved a window, the one next to the screen, but I just couldn't set the room up any different. I'm getting ready to order plantation Shutters from Lowes that are incased in a frame with weather stripping, so it should help with light control.

Over the years I've owned several projectors, I went with the RS1 even though my Sony G90 9" CRT put out the best picture over all. My goal was to have a hidden projector and well a G90 is sadly hard to hide.

"The Talon"

Mine is a small, simple room in my basement (11 x 19) that I managed to squeeze 7 seats into. The back row isn't perfect for sound, but my friends seem to like it! We didn't want individual seats since most of our friends are couples nowadays.



Side view with door to equipment closet. My wife was so on board with the project that she did all the stainning of the wood you see in these pictures!



Equipment closet (yep, that's a C-64 monitor that I use to schedule TiVo so I don't have to turn on the projector all the time)



Picture of stage right after carpet before building the screen wall (room got very dark after this stage and hard to photograph)

That theater looks really nice. Don't know that I would have the patience to do those gold lines though wow, that would be a pain. I'd have to higher someone to do that.

My guess is, the blue and gold coves are wallpaper.

The artist who painted the lines got a huge headache painting these lines. Everything was great in the computer rendering but once she started to paint the lines it was impossible to get them to look symmetric especially at the corners.
Lots of laser lines and help from other artists made it happen.
She swore she will not take this kind of job again.
But as all artists she takes a lot of pride with her work I gets a smile on her face every time she sees it again.
All the blue and the gold are paint.... the paint is non reflective and the Cieling does not reflect any light....

Wow, that must have taken forever. And what a pain. Hope you do not plan on changing the color schema any time soon...

Some pics of my theater I finished last year. It has a small handful of unfinished bits (like a box for the projector), but overall this is 99% complete.
We do theaters for our clients, but this is my personal one. It's nice to be able to do one for yourself as you'd like it to be.









The room has a great ambience with the mica sconces down low and the ceiling glowing, but it's very hard to capture in an image.



I used a gold-flake style wallpaper for the ceiling that I kept seeing being used in various rooms of homes we have been working in.



Projector still need an enclosure, but this pic shows a nice closeup of the fabric on the panels. Since it wasn't pourus enough to place a speaker behind, we needed a way to work a more speaker friendly fabric over the surround speakers. Thus the diagonal black lines on the side and back walls. That is where the surrounds are installed.

Now that is a first! A plant in a home theater.

Very spacious room layout. It is different with a variety of seating options to pick from.

Normally I would use the same style or color of seating throughout, but since we want to be able to show different styles and fabrics, I just had to find a way to make them all blend together as well as possible.

We all like the plant. It makes the room feel more homey. We'll probably replace it with something a little grander once the projector box is done and uplight it from below.

I lined rows of LEDs along the ceiling about 3" behind the fabric. It is a one-piece print out in a special material that is designed to be backlit. Getting it printed nicely all in one-piece was the most expensive part. The rest was just LEDs and the labor of stretching it across the ceiling like that.
It was hard to find the image. It needed to be very high-res to get blown up to that size and not look pixelated. I eventually found that Nebula image from NASA at about 10K X 8K resolution. It was an experiment and ended up working out well. Dimming the LEDs behind it changes its contrast and how deep the image looks. So for movies I can dim it low so its not distracting.

ColinVegas,

What lights are you using for the screen wash? I love the look with the lower intensity outer and the brighter inner cone of light...
