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 at a post #1216 above. New space is much smaller, 13 ft wide, 15 ft long, but completely dedicated and soundproofed. We enjoyed the color scheme and carpet as well as furniture in our original theater, so we kept the aesthetics the same.
7 years have passed and some equipment needed updating.
Epson 5030UB ( 3D Avatar is marvelous on it) is projecting onto 106" Carada Criterion Classic Cinema 16:9 screen, flanked by BP-7001SC towers, dialogue comes from CLR 3000 and surround effects provided by four BPVX/P, so Def Tech all over. So far no separate subs. Lighting in the room is Lutron RadioRa2 and the whole setup is controlled by Roomie remote installed on all of our iPhones and iPads. First reflections handled by GIK 242 acoustic panels and 244 Bass trap on the back wall.
Electronics are set on 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 wired with Araknis 16 port gigabit switcher to internet. Anti-Mode 8033 S-II is used for subwoofer eq. Onkyo PR-SC 885 pre-amp is pushing signal to Sunfire Grand Cinema 5 amplifier ( 5x200W/ch) and two Outlaw 2200 mono blocks (for back surrounds). Power is split on two separate circuits ( for components and speakers/projector), components are protected and conditioned by Panamax EX-5400 and Wat-box.

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.

Great looking room!! What type of stone wall panels did you use? I have a space about 13 feet wide on the wall with my dry bar that I would like to do something like this. Also about how much were they? (if you don't mind me asking)
