My favorite part of this forum is the build threads - but I always find it hard to figure out exactly what the "finished product" looked like. (Maybe that's because no one ever really has a "finished product"!)

The "Show me your" threads are pretty good for this but for specific applications. So, I want to see two or three photos of your finished theater! Feel free to leave a brief description as well. The goal here is a to create a quick and easy gallery of completed theaters as a reference for both old and new members of the forum.

I'll start:

108" laminate screen, Mitsubishi HC 1500. You may notice I'm not an audiophile or sound engineer. Regardless, I love the way it turned out.

Your theater is looking good. When will it be finished?

I suspect that it is just as controversial to determine
when a theater is finished
as it is to determine
whether it is a theater at all.

For me, my theater is always finished until I decide to change something.

I should have said that I meant "finished" to be a loose term, since I assume most of us will always have things we still need to do (like I need to paint the shelves and a few other things). I consider my theater finished mainly because I've moved into the room, and for all intents and purposes it's fully usable.

Mainly, I'd just like to gather some "non-construction" shots of finished or nearly finished theaters from our members.

I'll leave it up to each person who wants to post to decide whether their theater is finished (or even a theater )

From what I see around here, a theater is Never, Never finish. there's also next, next, and next, But never finish, almost but not just there yet. Maybe because of the talent and help and idea's that go through this site. Well I need to get back down stairs to the theater just hook up the PCH 110 ready to do the setup and test it out. Later


P. S. You Know the Deal.

I'm with you Renesis. It would be really fun to have a single massive thread here where people post pics of their finished theaters. I'm not saying of course that it would replace the gallery or individual threads, but it would be nice to see this grow to a 100 page thread that everyone could look through. And before someone says "gallery", sorry, the gallery sucks (nothing against AVS, it's just slow and cumbersome to navigate and the pics are all low res).

might have what you're looking for.

Although if you are going to stay with this thread it would be nice if it was a rule that a person could only post if the post contained pics. Saves wading through chatter to get to the good stuff.

Agree 100% (even though this is chatter ) I also don't need to see before pics nor 10 different pics of the lobby and popcorn maker. It would be really cool to just see finished room pics.

I promise I will include some finished HT pics this time, but it will be awhile until The Hobbit movie comes out for my themed HT.

Less chatter, more pics. I get it.

Panasonic AX200U Projector with 100" Elite Screen
Onkyo TX-SR606 Reciever
Klipsch Synergy F1 Towers with Klipsch Quintet III surrounds and center
Boston Acoustics 12" Sub, KLH 10" sub
Sony PS3 60g, Samsung BD-UP5000, Sony 400 disc DVD changer

My God, Art! I've looked at pictures of your theater before but never realized quite how BIG it is! What are the dimensions of that puppy?

BEAUTIFUL theaters all around, guys! Mine is almost done, should be able to post completed (for now) pics in a week or two.
