I used 2X4's to make the frames. Inside the frames are OC703 insulation. Used leftover fabric to cover the frames.

Hi Matt,

Great build! The space I've sectioned off in our blueprints is 30'x19.5'x10', which is very close to yours. I couldn't find any mention of the seating distance in your thread....could you please let me know the distance from screen to eyeball in both rows?

I'm hoping to have two rows, then sneak a poker table in the back...not sure that's doable though....

Thanks!

PS - that just reminded me of a sign I once saw "Liquor in the front, Poker in the rear"

Quill- I can't remember the exact distance. I will measure when I get back home this evening and let you know.

My distance from "eyeball" to screen are as follows: 1st row 11 feet. 2nd row 17.5 feet. 3rd row(Bar) 20.5 feet. This leaves room to walk behind the bar seats and for the false wall and screen. Let me know if you have other questions. Best of luck.

Hi Matt

You have done a great job with your theater. I'm going to take some of your knowledge and try to apply it to my new build. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Well, I don't know about the knowledge but I have definitely learned a lot from others. I will try to get some pictures posted by this weekend. We finally have the basement finished and just have some curtains and pictures to hang.

It's been a while since I have posted any updates so I thought I would do so. We have been enjoying the basement a little too much.


Here is a shot of the living area. I was going to put in a pool table but instead made it a place to watch tv. We also have the XBox and the PS3 hooked up here.


This a shot of outside the theater. We added some of my favorite movie posters: Sleepy Hollow, Poltergeist, and a Russian "Friday the 13th."


Here are the posters we had made for outside the theater. We have some more theater stuff to hang up but just haven't done so yet.


More movie posters hanging over the bar.

Yeah, he lives! Looks fantastic, that floor turned out really nice. Well actually everything turned out great! I need to come over and sample some of your adult beverages!

You certainly have a space you can be proud of for sure. Enjoy, I know I would.
