My room has good dimensions, however it is worth noting that there isn't a rectangular room that doesn't have peaks and nulls. Take the speed of sound in feet per second at your elevation and deisred room temperature and divide that by the length of the room. That number will be a frequency that will produce a full standing wave, (along with any multiple of that frequency, 2x, 3x, 4x, etc) and for that frequency if you stand in the middle of the room you will be in a null. At double the frequency you will have 3 nulls at 25%, 50% and 75% across the room on that length. You will even have a standing wave at half that frequency, but there will not be a null (actually you will have one at the wall, but nobody listens with their ear to the wall). Peaks will follow the same math. This is why all rooms need some form of sound treatment.
Rather than go with a soda dispenser, I am putting in a refrigerator with a glass door - this one here:
And this popcorn maker (without the cart - I will get it for outdoor use but not lug it upstairs to take up room in the theater):
I will have a candy counter as well with the refrigerator built into it and the popcorn machine on top. I don't want to have to run plumbing for the drainage line I would need with a fountain drink dispenser. Besides, I can offer a greater selection this way. I could have as many as 36 different brands/flavors of soda with each one having a spot on display. I won't have that many, but I will have more than 6: Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, 7-Up, Dr. Pepper, Barq's, A&W - diet and regular of each is 14 options, plus I will have a few beers in there as well.
