I've got a few pictures of what is an almost finished theater. I need to do the trim and build the removable panels in the back of the room. Shouldn't be too hard, but then again I thought I was going to be finished by the Super Bowl and we see how that turned out. Also, apparently I was full of crap about my praise of the Sherwin WIlliams' crew. I got the paint from them up on the door and it was more purple than anything. Lesson learned. Don't try to color match fabric. I just went with black satin. I only have one coat on the doors and need another. I took these with a DSLR and I'm a beginner at best.
Screen wall with the panels finished. 100" wide screen looks small in the photo but it is the perfect size for this room as far as I'm concerned. Zero reflection on the fabric ceiling. Yes it is pretty close to the ceiling and I had to do that because of the equipment rack underneath.
Projector that you can hardly see with 2 M&K SS 550's in the back
Doors that need another coat of paint
Back row of Bass Theater Seats
From the screen wall. I'm pretty sure I've had a beer in damn near every picture I've posted.
Almost finished! I've gotten everything accomplished that I wanted to get done with this build so far. It's a small room (19'x12'x8') that has the entire theater contained inside of it including media storage (haven't finished that yet but the shelf is finished). I didn't have an extra closet so I had to put the rack under the screen. Also, I think the rack looks good enough to leave the removable panel off if I decide to do so for some events. For some reason, I really wanted a fabric ceiling and I was able to pull that off, I think (at least in a dimly lit room). I've got seating for 7. I've got an acoustically transparent 2.40:1 screen. A very high quality sound system for movies. (These M&K's aren't the best for music but for movies they sound very "theater-like") The same goes for my new subs. I couldn't be happier with my new SVS PC-12 Plus'. I was worried about going ported but these things are ridiculous. I also didn't want to hide my surround speakers. Movie theaters have their surrounds exposed which is exactly what I wanted. I think authentic theaters' surround speakers are not very aesthetically pleasing, however. My M&K's with the curved mesh metal grills look pretty bitchin. The video is as good as I've ever had in my room with the Oppo, Lumagen and JVC video chain. The 5 hours calibrating was well worth it.
When the last couple of things on the list get finished, I'll get some more professional pictures uploaded. Or maybe you guys can tell me what my camera settings need to be. It's hard as hell to take pictures in dim room.
