Rich,

 

Your theater is very nice, elegant and well design, I could not agree more about the wide screen.  My screen is 10 feet wide we sit 12 feet away from it and I love it I wished I had a 14 feet wide screen :)

 

Once I have a dedicated room my goal is to have the largest screen I can with black velvet around the images in your pictures pop out of the screen!

Thanks wse.

It's interesting, in using my variable size approach even though I can now have up to a 125" wide image when I want, I often choose not to have the image that big. Source quality really varies and some movies look better at somewhat smaller sizes.

You are welcome, yes DVDs don't look good on a 10 feet wide screen, Blu Ray if well mastered look fantastic! I can't wait for true 4K

hello my friend i saw your setup which is beautiful by the way and you gave me the solution for my room!I will use black velvet curtains on the walls so make the room disappear and i will keep their bright colour for when i will not watch movies...the only place i cant put black velvet is behind the screen and at ceiling.I was thinking to paint those 2 Dark Grey!whats your opinion?

Rich,

I always love referring back to this thread when I show people the capabilities of even a small space. Do you think you could rehost the images? It looks like they dont load anymore

Unfortunately imageshack, which hosted my images, changed their policy and you have to pay a monthly fee for photos that can be linked to any forums. I didn't pay the fee (didn't even know about it) and they dumped my photos. Gone.

If I can find time I'll repost at least some of them. Not sure what on-line image hosting to use at this point.

It's a bummer when you "invest" in a forum and then it changes policy or disappears.
I did that with various forums before becoming active on AVS.
Bummer.

I didn't notice that others had inquired about your photos. If you want to snap a few new ones you can throw them up here. Easy to use and less cruft than the old services. http://postimage.org

Thanks for the suggestion. I also wondered about using Google Photos (?)

There are certainly many options. Google photos would likely stick around for a long time. The service I listed might be simpler to use as you can just upload and embed links.
