Let's see your concession stands!

Our basement home theater has been completed for about a month and I'd like to add some sort of concession stand to hold candy, drinks, etc. - but I'm not too keen on the $2,500+ prices I'm seeing on the usual home theater supply websites. So if you have a concession stand & a spare moment, could you please upload a pic of yours here or any ideas you have for your future concession stands? Thanks!

Setup: Epson Home Cinema 5030 UB 3D projector, 150" SilverTicket STR-169150 screen, Xbox One Blu-ray, Denon AVR S510BT 5.2 Channel AV Receiver, Bose Acoustimass 10 speakers, Pioneer SW-8 100 Watt RMS Subwoofer

I don't think mine qualifies as a true concession stand, but when kids come over they get ear to ear smiles. Though, my husband's friend asked,"Why the heck is there food on the wall?!?"

The chip bag holder, I'm not really happy with. It has clips that are meant for hanging photos. It works, but I'm keeping an eye out for something that would look and work better. It looks kinda weird so low to the ground.

The candy holder is peg board painted black, glued (liquid nails) into a cheapo Walmart frame. I found the idea for the candy rack on Pintrest.

I need to find or make some sort of sign to hang above the pop corn machine. It's still a work in progress.

After seeing pics of some of the amazing set ups I've seen on this site, I'm almost embarrassed to post pics of mine.

There is nothing wrong with that, it's creativity. If we were all the same we would be boring.

If you're looking for a retail style glass shelved display case, Displays2Go has some at reasonable prices in flat packs. They're for cash registers, and have sliding doors in back to access the display area. They call them cashwraps on the site. I'd post a link but I don't have enough posts to do that, yet.
I thought about going that route, but I didn't have enough room to have it spaced far enough from the wall. Not sure on their quality as I've never see one of their stands in person. I think they'd look pretty cool with a popcorn machine on top if the dimensions match up.

Thank you! I'm loving these ideas. I definitely wasn't willing to cough up $3,000 for a concession stand, so these are much more doable.

I just noticed you also needed a place for drinks, I must've blown right past that part of the post.
To the left of my popcorn machine I have two upper and two base cabinets. I put a mini fridge in between the base cabinets. It works out well for storing pop corn supplies, pop and extra snacks.
I used a standard sized countertop, it overhangs a bit, but that left room for a hanging paper towel holder. In hindsight I would've planned it to fit better. I was trying to hang the uppers where it looked best in relation to the soffit that's above it. The upper cabinets end at the soffit.
Finishing the basement was the biggest remodel project I've done. I see all the little imperfections, and things I could've improved on, for the most part I'm happy with it.

Melissa71, we must have seen the same Pinterest image! I made the same display for my candy. Sorry for the blurry image.

If you check out my vid at bottom of signature (10 min time lapse of theater build), near the end you will see I have a DIY concessions stand I recently built. (I don't have access to load the photo right now). **Edit I found some photos Popcorn machine on top. Did not build it to fit a small fridge because I have a fridge elsewhere in the room.

The link to this concession stand build is in my signature.

Both are similar design and DIY. Good luck and have fun!

Man these are all very nice.

I can't wait for my dedicated room to build a custom stand.

My concession area is admittedly a liiiiiiittle bit overkill, but I enjoy hosting and friends love it (as well as my son and his friends!).

The front counter is a retail jewelry/register counter I purchased at a nearby store that sells retail fixtures. I paid under $300 for it, and it looks great. As someone mentioned earlier, you can find these online (look for retail fixtures, jewelry counters, etc), but typically ship flat and have some pretty high shipping costs (they're ridiculously heavy!).

That is very nice. I wish I had the room for that and lobby bar.

That is awesome. Any pictures that better show the items on the back counter? Is that a hot dog machine? I've contemplated getting one.

That is indeed a hot dog machine. I rarely use it during movies, but it looks nice on the counter. I typically use it for larger gatherings like an outdoor movie night, kids birthday, etc.

I'll have to see if I can get some photos, but the back shelf contains (from l to r) a candy rack, a hot dog machine, butter warmer, slush machine, and beverage fridge.

You mean the black box that precedes "Family Theater"? No, I just put that there in photoshop to block out my last name for privacy.

go to advance search engine. Below the search word window, use the title search only option. "concession" would bring a lot of past threads like this:

I just picked up these two display cases. I am going to put in our candy room that we are doing. Can't wait. Got them for a 100 a piece. Great deal.

The chip bag holder, I'm not really happy with. It has clips that are meant for hanging photos. It works, but I'm keeping an eye out for something that would look and work better. It looks kinda weird so low to the ground.

The candy holder is peg board painted black, glued (liquid nails) into a cheapo Walmart frame. I found the idea for the candy rack on Pintrest.

I need to find or make some sort of sign to hang above the pop corn machine. It's still a work in progress.

After seeing pics of some of the amazing set ups I've seen on this site, I'm almost embarrassed to post pics of mine.

Don't be! That is super cute, not a major investment and I might just steal the idea because I know it would delight my kids and their friends, too.

Actually, your candy part is almost exactly what I'm trying to do since I don't have room for a display cabinet or the like. Quick question, are you just using pegs to hold the candy, and is that why you have all theater box style candy, so they stand up? I'm actually trying to find a piece of slat wall and get some slanted acrylic shelves, but most of the ones I've found are crazy prices. Seeing how yours looks, I may forego the shelves and switch to all box candy.

Remember, no matter where you go... You're not where you were anymore.

Thank you. Yes, I'm using black plastic pegs to hold the candy. Two per "spot." It doesn't work well with smaller, regular candy bars, but works great for theater sized boxes of candy. I measured the cardboard backing in my frame, and had HomeDepot cut the pegboard, super fun and easy project.

There's a tutorial for making it on pintrest, it's where I copied the idea.
