Thxs ElmO your setup up is coming along nicely as well.

The wife and I watched the new star trek movie Wednesday night and must say I do not regret upgrading to the panny one bit. That movie rocked. I also watched the movie Serenity last night I don't know how I missed this movie and never watched it because it was fantastic and reminded me of pirates of the Caribbean but in space. Now I wish I had picked up the series first

Nice room Scott! Thanks for sharing your progress.

Once silly question, any pics of the LED lights behind the screen?

You'll be fine watching the series next. I did that and think I enjoyed the series more because they started out as old friends.

I'm jealous you have many more hours of this masterpiece ahead of you. The series is a lot of fun.

I removed the leds and put the halogens back in if I would have used them in front of the screen I would have been fine but behind the screen they just are not bright enough to really make a impack. Check out cams thread he used leds in the front of his screen and that really was the look I was going for http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...8#post14162418

Agreed. Best. Show. Ever. If you liked Serenity, you're gonna love the series, there are episodes there that blow the movie away. Couldn't tell ya how many times I've sat through Firefly... just be ready for the letdown when you get to the end and there's no more... I still get that feeling after "Objects in Space".

Arrh, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal, Fox!

I agree fox has had some fantastic series that ended up being canceled for some crap that only a few watch. They suck you in like a drug and then cut you off cold Turkey and make you go through withdrawls. I hate and love fox at the same time

Scott,
If Monday was your last day of work then why don't we have any new pics posted yet ? You have really become a slacker with your summer hours : ^ ) Still love looking at your build for inspiration by the way. Enjoy your 'theater season'

Scott - great theater build. I'm getting the bug to start on mine so I've been slowly lurking back into the forums. Lots of great resources.

I know you upgraded to the Panasonic AE4000U and you have a AT screen from SMX. One salesman told me I may have issues projecting a 142" image from 15' back on an AT screen. But it appears that yours is close to those dimensions and even further back. So you would know first hand.

My other concern is the first row seating (in my case), is only going to be 11' back from the screen. So I'm concerned that I may need to go smaller. It wouldn't be a major deal because I have a second row, but I'm planning on putting a D-Box in the first row of seats. So those are going to be somewhat of prime viewing seats to really "feel" the movie. I guess it's time I start an official thread to get some answers to some of these questions so I don't divert your thread.

I'm just hoping to decide on a project and screen size so I can start making preparations for the room. I already bought a Sony VW40 a year ago (in case anyone wants it). Technology changes faster than I can get going on my theater.

So is this going to be a 2.35 screen ? as I think 11' mite be a bit close for the front row for a 12' wide screen it would be pretty awesome though. I could try moving my seats up 2' and see just how it would look for you. I'm not sure you could zoom out that far at 15' to fit that large of screen you mite think of going 10' wide 2.35. all I have to say is if you go with the panny 4000 you will be thrilled with the picture at what ever size screen you choose.

Scott,

That would be great if you could test drive it with your theater. I'm leaning towards 2.35 for the screen. Although, 16x9 would probably better conform to my room and seats because of the elevations. Your thoughts on 2.35?

I do play XBox360 and want to watch some HD games in there.

I don't know what the percentage of movies released onto bluray that are 2.35 but its alot so for me 2.35 was the only way to go. I will try watching at 11' but I'm thinking thats going to be a bit to close for a 2.35 screen. 16.9 mite work at that distance though

Beautiful work. Love the way it turned out. I'm also in the Omaha area, but building this for my parents in Grand Island. Wish I had an SMX screen

2.35 all the way. You'll regret it if you don't. I have a 12' wide curved screen and sit 10' away with no issues. It's my first row but thats my preferred seats. It's not for everyone but I like it. You would think that it tires you trying to watch the movie but it doesnt and it comes natural. I almost wish I would have gone another foot or so wide on the screen.

I think sitting 10' from my screen would be a bit to close for me but everyone has there own viewing sweet spot Since I have upgraded to the panny 4000 the front row is my sweet spot now at 13'

Well today I did the unthinkable I took down the projector moved all the recliners out of the theater and unhooked all my components in hopes of sparking some ambition to crank out some work as winter is really starting to fly by. My thinking is I'm going to start missing my giant screen movie goodness that ill go crazy and have no choice but to finish so I can hook everything back up. I'm also receiving some pressure from the boss and shes about to start cracking the whip plus I would really like to get this all done so I can really enjoy it.

I also spent part of the day ripping all the oak for the soffet rope light tray. The plan is finish soffets and the rest of the wall trim and door that will leave me with the ceiling to finish and I still have not made up my mind if I'm going to do a star ceiling or just black fabric.



Heres a pic to prove I'm not just blowing smoke

OMG Wow this is a first I'm sure. Actually I bet that took a lot of control but it is probably the best move you made, you were getting too comfortable in front of that new pany! Looking forward to the grand (re)opening

Hey John

I just caught up on your thread and the bar cabinets look great you need to post us a few more pics. What type of counter top are you going to use granite ?

Dude! You are much stronger than me.

Looking at that picture, what's left? A light tray and crown maybe? I'm curious how you're going to do the light tray. When I did mine I went back and forth with different ideas (MDF/veneer, oak ply, oak ply & stock, etc).

Good luck man, you definitely have some motivation now. :-)
