The window plug
Along the right hand side of the theater (when facing the screen) is a window that needs to be plugged. I got the idea to plug it like this from another thread (thanks to whichever thread that was).
I built two boxes out of 2/4 and added drywall to the first one, and DD GG to the second one. Then inserted one with the drywall facing out to the window and the other with the DD facing inwards. Ultimately this will be covered by a second wall anyways but I will leave that second wall with a space in the wall framing where the window is (like the exterior wall construction) and then will DD GG over it. I just feel better that if access ever were needed all I would need is a drywall saw and I could cut a hole in the near proximity of the window, do whatever is needed (such as replace the window perhaps) then pop the window plugs back in and repair the DD drywall side. I also left the window unlocked when I pushed it closed in case I need to reach in for whatever reason from the outside.
It was fitted nearly perfectly, but I shoved acoustic insulation in the cracks with a pencil where I could.
