Redskinema - Major Updates! (I'm finally finishing it!)

Jeff from Night Sky Murals is coming to my house today! I know its been a while since I've posted on here. Later ill put up some pics of things Ive done. Tony and I built the acoustic treatment for the ceiling and designed it to match the room, and look like a window. I havent finished the trim yet to make it look like a window. I needs to be painted first. But im excited for how its going to look.

Ill get some more updates and photos later

Redskinema - Major Updates! (I'm finally finishing it!)

I've failed as a thread starter in updating this thread. I owe you guys updates and progress. And I'm going to update the thread to include the rest of the basement that were working on now. I've been using, and loving, the theater in an unfinished basement for the last year.

Wow I haven't really posted in three years. Also sadly, I never finished. Once the theater worked I basically moved onto the rest of the basement, which has turned out amazing and I'll share if there's interest (12 beers on tap!)

I've spent a lot of time the last month finishing the theater. Ironically, my llast posts were about Jeff from night sky's, and that's I'm doing now is trying to see if I can find a good led uv strip for them.

I have so much to say, and so many pictures to load!

I also finally got a door! Well I'm making it. I just need my 8 inches hinges to arrive, it's on temp hinges now.

For three years I used the theater without trim or a door so it's so exciting seeing it finally finished looking.

Redskinema - Nearing completion!

Here's a few pics to see if there's still interest in my build. Here's two tease pics of the bar, and some pics of the theater a month ago. You can basically see what I did by looking at all the unpainted trim. Took a while to do all the cutting and it was only part of it

Last weeks trim painting. Side note painting is much easier than all the cuts!

I'd like to add, it's great that tapatalk now works here. I would have probably posted ten times more through the entire build but I hated having to take pics, download them to a comp, upload them to my account, and then link them to posts. This is so much better!

And for anyone that followed me for years ago, you may remember the massive piles of cardboard and trash from theater building. Well here was last weeks! My dad was visiting and we cleaned out the garage, which was storing theater and basement materials and garbage for years. Even got almost 500 in Home Depot credit from returns

Well I don't know if anyone is still going to follow this but here's some thoughts from a few years of use

Life without a theater is no life at all! Ok maybe that's extreme but this is why we're all here. We watch all our movies and main shows in here. It makes Sunday night game of thrones feel like a date.

No one believes it, but don't hook up your projector until you're done. I didn't think I'd fall for it, but here I am three years later finishing. Granted, I did put a theater in an unfinished basement and I did finish most of that since

Sound proofing...well, to be determined! I went to extreme details sound proofing, it's a room within a room, floating ceiling, double 5/8th w green glue, all seams acoustically caulked, then build the theater with 3/4 maple inside of the sound proof room....but...I never got a door....but that's happening right now so we'll see just how much all that detail mattered

Acoustic treatments are more important that speakers. They make all the difference and no one can even tell I have them.

I replaced my first gem hue light strips with second gen, it makes a huge difference and is now two strips instead of ten. I love the hue bulbs, they are so easy to control and up can use Siri with them. People say more about the lighting than anything else

Getgreys anamorphic lens is great. I just changed the remotes batteries for the first time. 235 is a must as far as I'm concerned.

The runco led projector is still perfect. I love the instant turn on, no change in brightness. No need to change bulbs. I have no interest in 3D and don't plan on upgrading to 4K anytime soon

The chairs by Roman are great. One never worked but I'll finally get around to troubleshooting with him now that I'm finishing

I rarely just look at the star ceiling, but I do love it when I do

My designs I still think we're all great. You'll see when I post painting pics how quickly all my columns pop out and How I always have access to everything, can always add or change a wire, and all without effecting sound proofing.

I miss typing here. I started some threads for my bar and fish tank but always liked this forum the best. Hopefully there's still interest for all the rest of the pics and progress.

I might suggest some railing for those stairs ;-)

It is interesting, I live in the midwest (Cincinnati area) and recently converted the steps into my basement from carpet to hardwood, and the site I got the treads from, had some 'generalizations' of Riser colors... East/North East... risers usually match treads (which I see yours do)... midwest, risers are usually white (which mine are, and most of my friends are as well).... strange how that is different.

Do you have 12 'mini kegs' or something hooked up to the taps? I think that might be too dangerous for me.... I don't drink much at home, but love beer when we eat out and it is ice cold from a tap.

Redskinema - Major Updates! (I'm finally finishing it!)

I have four more bourbon barrels. The one in the pic is a weller (buffalo trace barrel) with only their bourbon on it. I'd like to use another barrel as my bathroom vanity with a copper basin in it. The others I'm cutting up to make dart board holders, chalk board for beers and I want to use the extra staves for the balusters on the stairs. I'll do a few and see how it looks.

There's 12 soda kegs (five gallons, about 53 beers each). I'll get more pics up of how it was all built.

And my stairs were carpeted when I got the house. I just sanded them and stained them. I was worried I'd have to cap them but they turned out great.

I can't find the inspiration pics but here's some. I'd have to decide if I wanted to sand and stain. Or poly. Or keep the charred inside and poly the out...lots of reasons why it's not done yet

I thought I was being over zealous with 6 beer taps (I dropped to 3), but dang!

+1 Let's see some detail on that tank. Looks great.

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?
