The screen is a Severtson 119" 16:9 screen paired with a Sony VW-Pro1 projector.

Great job on that theater. I think it's just missing one thing, though; it needs more cowbell. Oh...wait. There it is.

Looking forward to seeing the new one. When do you start?

Thanks! I used precut pine circles from Home Depot along with 3 dowel rods. They were pretty sturdy but allowed a bit of rotational movement.

My cowbell is one of the only things I brought from the old place!

I'm about 2/3 through with the new theater - follow along in the build thread in my sig. Going for a different feel and a bit more multipurpose this time.

Tale of the two theaters II

So, our new HT in our new house is done, well 99% done... you will find more about first theater a few posts below. New space is much smaller, 13 ft wide, 15 ft long, but completely dedicated. We had all the furniture from the first one and we liked the colors,carpet and kept everything the same. 7 years have passed and some equipment was updated. Epson 5030UB ( 3D Avatar is marvelous) is projecting onto 106" Carada Criterion Classic Cinema 16:9 screen that is flanked by BP7001SC towers, dialogue comes from CLR 3000 and surround effects provided by four BPVX/P, so Def Tech all over. So far no separate subs. On the Strong 72U rack under the stairs Oppo BDP-103 delivers blu-ray,Super Joey DVR from Dish, Apple TV for streaming,Mac Mini as a server, XboxOne and Xbox 360 for fun, Escient media server MX-111 connected to Sony DVP CX 777 ES 400 DVD/SACD changer, everything connected with Araknis 16 port gigabit switcher to internet. All the electronics are managed by Onkyo PR-SC 885 pre-amp that is pushing the sound to Sunfire Grand Cinema 5 channel 200W amp and two Outlaw 2200 mono blocks powering back surrounds. Power is on two separate circuits ( for components and speakers/projector), components are protected and conditioned by Panamax EX-5400 and Wat-box. Lighting in the room is Lutron RadioRa2 and the whole setup is controlled by Roomie remote installed on all of our iPhones and iPads. Just yesterday I installed GIK 242 acoustic panels and 244 Monster Bass trap on the walls, next week I should receive Anti-Mode 8033 S-II that should help equalize and improve bass even more.

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.
My new theater is having a couch in one row and recliners in the other. I am with you on wanting to stretch out from time to time.
