FINAL THEATER CONSTRUCTION UPDATE (DECEMBER 2010)
It's been more than a year since I have posted updated photos of my theater, not much has been changed in the existing design except for the two columns which are now matching the rest of the walls (2/3rd Red, 1/3rd black). In addition, I am in the process of upgrading the theater to get 3D. So I will be getting a new JVC RS40 proejector soon (my old RS20, pictured, was sold two months ago). I have also upgraded my receiver and will be getting a 3D bluray player to complete the 3D experience.The BIG UPDATE
, however, involves the addition of a new retro L-shaped bar
(seats 7) to match the red/black color and classic theme of the theater which was completed right before the last Superbowl about 10 months ago. This bar was custom designed by a great bar company and I HIGHLY recommend these guys as they were able to build this bar for me for about the same price a few local bar builders quoted me for building me a plain jaine paper thin traditional wooden bar. The bar builder is extremely talented to have been able to pull such an amazing looking bar for such fairly low cost and they delivered a top notch bar with the exact measurements to the last quarter inch considering the crucial accuracy needed to match my angled wall.

Since these rack pictures were taken, I've already upgraded to a new Denon AVR4311 from the AVR3808 to get ready for the 3D upgrade with the new JVC RS40 projector in addition to adding a couple more 2U shelves for the HTPC and the new Oppo BD93 3D-BD player.Bar, Riser and AT Screen Wall Lighting:Here is a shot of The Hulk using my old RS20 projector against my 140" wide CIH scope AT screen:
