The spackling for my home theater is almost finished so I'm going to be painting soon and I don't know what color to paint the ceiling!
From what I've read, it's a really bad idea to paint the ceiling white because the reflection off of a projector (like I have) will show up on the ceiling. Is this true?
For the walls I'm planning to use a dark red color, but I'm really not sure what color to paint the ceiling. The wife is OK with any color (including black or dark gray) but would prefer white or near-white.
Black would be nice but I warn if you did Drywall I hope you seams are smooth. Even with dark purple like the color in mine I see defects. If your going black maybe use GOM black with Fabricmate track or create panels like SandManX did.

I just painted my theater with Behr flat enamel. ("Beluga" colour - a true black). The paint went on great and looks great - I only used/needed two coats - even though I had a white primed ceiling. The flat enamel is much more forgiving than the standard flat for fingerprints etc.
So my suggestion? Go for it! I'm glad i did.
