Hi Jeff... is a Projector selected yet? Also, how far back will the 1st Row be from the screen?

If anyone is interested I'll describe some of the things I invented along the way to make this doable with two people and no CNC machine to cut the curves.
What kind of lights are you using on the ceiling? LED strips, rope lights,...?

Yikes. If that's the carpet sample... Yikes. I'm all for tigers and everything being from Clemson but.... Yikes.

The room and ceiling look great though.

Doug you're probably 10 minutes up 29 north from me. I bought anew AT Falcon screen and love it. Rich gave me the local service so he could probably do that same for you. PM me if you'd like to see the screen first, but I know you would be happy if you just went ahead and bought it anyway.

Awesome, thanks, will do! We're trying to finalize design ideas, and that could really help!

Big, incredible work! I have a question tho: If my math is right, that room is 16 x 29 (ish, based on your design a year ago). How did you fit 4 chairs that size in the front row?? They look bigger than 2' each, do you remember the dimensions?

I'll be really curious to see the final result.

This project seems like it's a slow mover though. What is the ETA for completion?

How many other theaters are you currently working on? Matt's, this one... anything else coming up ?

You'll have to update your signature soon when they complete. Keep it up! You might run out of room for your signature!
I always enjoy watching your builds, and your threads/pics/updates! You do great work.
