A quick picture from my phone. Ignore the purple couch. Eventually, we will get a matching set of loveseats like the ones in the front. I think they look awesome.

These just came in tonight.

I purchased these from theaterseat online.
They are SeatCraft Executive Series Nemesis. All bonded leather...all power. You can pick material type and color for these. They are completely custom made here in the USA.

We went back and forth between buying these or plain black for much less. We finally decided that these seats are spectacular and will be a main design element of the theater and not just seating.

Not cheap though...I feel violated!

LOL

Hope at least some of the candy packages are empty dummies for show, so you won't have to eat all that before it goes bad just because.... (Looks great, though.)

We have a plan for our candy. Every Halloween we are going to pass it all out. This way our candy is always rotated and fresh. With kids who are 9, 19 and 21, having candy go bad hasn't been a problem. Also, next week we are having a theater opening party. I'm sure lots will be eaten then too.

Jeff- first I love your whole HT and basement concept and execution!
1970's theme, I'm a class of 1980 HS grad myself, so you must be around same.
Missed this thread, then when you posted it in completed HT thread I had to read thru it.

Since it was a "catch-up" read for me, and late/early AVS browsing, I was wondering on the Oct-2013 and Nov-2013 in your early posts..I thought to myself "did you post empty and back-fill them, as some do for the HT builds?"
Then on bottom of 1st page I saw this and just smiled to myself.

In your mind you must have had it Fall-2013 all along as completion date....

btw, I've seen your color green before; your sitting zone


My pool/dart board zone

and kitchenette area


My kids seem to be at an earlier life stage than your, mine are 11, 9, and 7.
So the open basement area is more young kid mindset, at some point in future 5-ish years I might transform the kitchenette area into a bar area....
Yours looks great!
Kudos to your hard work.

[edit]
Noticed same collection of space glasses as well wink.gif

my rear corner bass traps, Apollo 13 on right, Burger King Star Wars on left, both my originals from back in the day
looking on ebay they are not worth that much...

Awesome! I really appreciate theaters that are bold and take stylistic chances. Nice job!

I just now realized that what you meant was my dates had the wrong year. LOL
I thought you meant a person could travel back in time when they visit my theater. Now I realize you meant my dates indicated you were looking into the future.

I just got this back from the framer.
These are my Schoolhouse Rock cels from the 1974 cartoon VERB: That's What's Happening.

I've always wanted some production used cels and these really fit the theme of my lobby. 1974 and theater themed too.

Thanks. I'm very proud to own cels from a cartoon I grew up with.

It took awhile to find the perfect light, but I think we finally found it.

I wanted something close to the ceiling to avoid the look of a dining room hanging light and I wanted it to look a little commercial like.

I found it on eBay for about $160. It wasn't the easiest light to hang, but I think it turned out great. It's got 9 bulbs so it puts out lots of light for the game table.
