Well, I snapped some new photos of my entry door. I went for something discrete for the theater entry. I have some doors to cover the shelves on the bottom but they are off right now. I will put them back on once they get a little touch up painting.



There are no seals on this door as the main theater door is the one with the sound barrier properties. I want to get a new bottom seal on that door and when I get it, I will take some photos of all the seals on it and post it.

Here's one from electronic house that I've tagged for possibly planning mine after:


and another (upholstered):


For the secondary theater I'm working on now, I was looking for a sort of stainless steel (refridgerator door) type look. Does anyone have any ideas of where to get one or recreate that look? I think i can find a stainless steel door manufacturer but it will be a chunk of change to get a custom cut, since it has to be under 78"...

Current Projects:
IN PROGRESS (80%) - Building 3D Theater room.
IN PROGRESS (30%) - Building Lounge/Hallway Area.
IN PROGRESS (15%) - Building Home LAN (4 PCs).
ON HOLD - Building Home Gym.
ON HOLD - Building Simulation Room (Eyefinity).
ON HOLD - Building Theater room (Sim2 HT380, 2.35 14ft wide).

I had a panel made for me that had a true tufted design for my back bar. I went to a local upholstery shop that serviced the restaurant industry. Think Denny's booths. I had to make the panel and they did the rest.

True tufted has a fold at each button, Faux tufted is just punching in a bunch of buttons on a cushion.

OK very interesting. After I saw your theater here years ago I decided it was time to redo my basement. I don't have the carpentry or design skills you do, but I knew I could do better than just a projector hanging on the ceiling.

I was goign to do a faux tuft myself after speaking to some sewers at Joann's fabric. She mentioned there may be some type of screw on buttons that would help me with my idea.

I'm throwing around too many ideas in my head about doors. I can't decide between a stained solid core wood door, a tufted door, a hollow stainless steel door, etc.

This is probably someone's theater from AVS, but here's the stainless steel door:

solid core door wrapped in 2 layers of upholstery batting - about 3/4" thickness is adequate, ready to be covered with faux leather .


used large 1" welt along the opening edge of door to create a "bumper" and rounded edge to seal the light gap into the theater

Some wonderful doors and entries here.

Allow me to share my opulent, and luxurious door, and treatments around it. tongue.gif


I had intended to spruce it up, but as time passed I needed the surrounding wall for tools, bikes etc and now is not nearly as clutter free as this pic from four years ago. The door to the theater is in the garage - and the garage won. It is not even painted. redface.gif

That said, I have grown to like the contrast between the innocuous entry and then the dedicated room. Kind of makes the theater seem that much better...smile.gif

Now back to the nice entries. smile.gif

I might do something like this since I'm incorporating stone veneer panels, and I sort of need a double entry-way into my main theater since I have some dead space in the basement. I don't have a lot of height to work with though.

Anyone have creative ideas on what to do with the left side of this jamb? This is a 36 inch door i squeezed into a doorway into the theater room. Probably could have build the wall out a little and done a nicer looking job with a 32 inch door but was nervous about getting chairs in and out of the 32 inch door. Looks like I'm limited to casing only the right and top, was thinking about fluted molding, maybe a keystone in the middle on top. But not coming up with anything extraordinary for casing the left other than taking something like an inch to inch and a half rip of that fluted and running it down there. I tested and an inch and a half is as wide as I can go without causing issues opening the door. Was also thinking about one of those semi-circle deals coming out over the top with a light underneath (similar to riveredge theater above though much smaller scale). Ignore wall colors, that will get painted. Door will most likely be painted a dark brown.

GREAT! Now I don't have to build these things myself. When I'm ready for my door and marquee, I'll reach out. Thanks for letting us know.

Shaw did respond immediately. He found those Art Deco pull handles from Ebay, from an NYC close down. Probably one of a kind. I have found some Art Deco stuff online, but they want $500 a handle. I don't know, the doors were only $60 each - lol. smile.gif I'm still considering it though.

They are double closet doors.

A closet was inside the theater space and I repurposed the doors.
