Very impressive indeed!! I took me three years to get my theater to its current functioning state! Money was what always took the longest to obtain lol.

Vik,

I just love the lines of your room.

It looks like a curvacious super model!

I know once the carpet is in the room will take on an even better finished look.

You simply must remain strong and finish the room before watching too many movies!!!

Yup lots of snow, and lots deeper in places where there are drifts. I can't wait to see the "Big" snow man tribute. Don't forget the "miners light". biggrin.gif I have not forgotten you Vik, I still plan on helping you. Might be sometime next week before I have some time to get over there to help. If you can wait that long, I'm in. wink.gif

Have you done anything regarding the in line fans yet?

I was kidding about the snowman biggrin.gif , Take your own time RT. Its not a compulsion. I am actually having a great time with my family and don't plan on doing anything until after new year so no i have not done anything in regards to the rest of the theater yet.

With a 7 day turnaround, even with the Holiday I have a repaired Canon S100 camera back in my hands. Covered under an extended warranty created because of a rash of similar failures.

I've been buying canon cameras, bodies and lenses for, well, a lot of decades. They've always stood behind their products, and have gone above and beyond on more than a few occasions. Good to know they treated you well.

Sorry to hear you're not getting your snowman tribute. That lazy bastid. biggrin.gif

damn this build was ridiculously fast. It's always great to have a 2.35 screen fill up wall to wall! I like your geometric off angle stage. I wanted to do curves in my 3D theater build, but there's only so much I can do by myself (lol). I'll do better in the actual theater room.


Current Projects:
IN PROGRESS (80%) - Building 3D Theater room.
IN PROGRESS (30%) - Building Lounge/Hallway Area.
IN PROGRESS (15%) - Building Home LAN (4 PCs).
ON HOLD - Building Home Gym.
ON HOLD - Building Simulation Room (Eyefinity).
ON HOLD - Building Theater room (Sim2 HT380, 2.35 14ft wide).

Actually it is a 2:36.87857836745657382927659329375847565609352316748 aspect ratio, Vik just rounded up to make it easier for everyone. biggrin.gif let me tell you elmalloc pictures don't do Vik's theater justice. It (along with the curves) are even better in person. Vik and Big obviously make a good HT team. wink.gif

Yes, Vik's theater looks awesome. I was talking to my carpenter friend today about his theater with rope lighting, and how we need to incorporate rope lights in my main theater room. My carpenter thinks I'm nuts. It's hard to find people like Big who are really into theaters and also very handy with tools, and understand our nonsense.

Thanks Vik, yes I would like to see yours soon! I read your thread and early on you said you were already getting ideas for your next theater, it reminded me of me (and why I have multiple media rooms). The more you read here, the more you see, the ideas flood into your brain! I have redone portions of rooms in my basement after putting the framing up, something didn't feel right (lol). Yours looks perfect. Let me know how you like Seymour Stage XD's material, I am contemplating using that in mine also.
