How about a "Show me your HT foyer" thread!

So my room is almost done. Took a few weeks of busting butt and now I just need some carpet and some finishing touches. Now I'm on to the Foyer and needing some inspiration I've noticed I don't see a HT foyer thread. Seems it would be a great addition to those looking for ideas.

What would be the point of having *ANY* show me threads then?

A ""show me" thread does make sense. It could be linked with all the other Show Me threads right here (was just enlightened about this the other day too). A QUICK source for those looking....

Here's some starter pics:

OK I'll play, in a wide open basement theater space this is my "Foyer". First thing you see walking down the steps, back-splash in development.

I love this entry. My theater is a wine colored Fabric with black columns and wainscoting (similar to cinemar). I've brought this into my entry but it's just not as inviting as yours. The wife thinks I should go with a silver or grayish color above a black wainscoting to brighten it up but I'm afraid it'll clash with the theater colors.

My foyer is nothing fancy, but high on utility, function and practicality..............kitchen, dining, rack, media storage, and bathroom all with in 8-10 ft of each other! Best part of foyer design!

Needed double door system for soundproofing, wanted rack next to theater entrance, access to media, immediate access to goodies ie kitchen........and most importantly, fast access to BATHROOM! Yes, age is an issue.........

Looks great. I've seen some guys build light boxes (deep frame around the edges) to conceal the lighting. I may try and do this in mine.

My lobby exists only in my head currently.


But I've been working on a digital movie poster "lightbox" project, for the small space that will eventually be
the entry area. It will float off the wall slightly, feature a wood frame and a metal faceplate covering a LG 42"
1080P IPS hdtv. Not sure if I'll backlight it, but that could be an easy option with the wood surround floating
off the wall. The hdtv surround design is inspired by Framed 2.0.I'm kind of aiming for a modern interpretation
of old school movie theater light boxes.


Just a poor quality video, showing the internal slideshow playing posters off a usb drive. Kind of a proof of concept,
done with a Bristol board mask. The posters are mostly downsized from higher resolution and range from nice to outright
stunning. A side component of the project is a Google Drive for sharing the "software" posters.


While I am using the internal media player, I picked up an Amazon FireTV media player last week, and plan to give it
a try too.




And three 1080x1600 posters expanded to include the color bar showing off the text back light panel. The thinking here
is to not wear the full hdtv lcd panel unevenly while still keeping to a 27x40" poster ratio.
