I will interested in seeing how this comes together. You have a lot of interesting elements to build around. Soffit/Crown and doorway on the other side. How will you address the doorway?

I will have a black panel on the side of the left upright. That will box in the screen wall. The door there won't be an issue once it goes up as I might just paint it the room wall color to help it disappear when the lights go down.

When framing up the front wall (not the screen wall) I should decouple it from the joists, correct?

However, when doing the screen wall, if I am doing channel+clips+DW+GG+DW on the ceiling, I would assume that I don't need to further decouple the false screen wall with clips, correct?

correct as long as you just connect the top to the decoupled ceiling.

BIG/et al, What do you recommend using for the black wall panels around the screen? Mine need to be AT but I want them to black it out as much as possible.

I just used some black GOM FR701 for the side/top/bottom panels. The Rose brand speaker cloth would also work for a little less $$. I used it to cover the back wall behind my screen. It's not quite as thick, but I would say it's passable.

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

Should I use Velvet above the screen to black out the crown then use the speaker cloth or something similar on the sides and the bottom?

From an aesthetics point of view, I don't know that I would use different fabrics. Are you asking about the crown behind your screen or the crown above it?
If it was me, I would be looking at covering the wall behind your screen anyway with some sort of absorptive material. You could use that opportunity to mask the crown behind your screen. Alternatively, you could fill the empty area in the top panel with cardboard or foam insulation to prevent light reflecting through.

I am mostly focused on blacking out the area immediately around the screen for now. I agree the area behind the screen needs to be darkened in areas also. Should I just wrap the crown above the screen in black velvet or speakercloth?
