Here's mine-

I did a slight alteration since I actually have two theaters, my indoor and outdoor ht's, so instead I added photos of them in place of the logos.

I have had a play with a bit of vector art I found and put one of a choice of characters in the ticket boot, Mario, Bugs Bunny, Tweety Pie, Porky or Burger Time. I have attached an example with Mario waiting to give you your ticket, hopefully attached. Unfortunately I forgot I had these and have already sent mine off for printing.

Mario is much better than a dog. I mentioned a while back, I'd like to see a pic of a celebrity in the booth. Since we are talking cartoons, what about a Pixar character or other cartoon character?

Oh yeah, now you just need to get one of those voice activated mechanisms and use Mario's voice.

Is there anyone out there who is still helping the needy/clueless with the marquee image? I bought the Michael's shadowbox and the lights, but I've got no image. PM me if you can help thanks.

To further expand on this great thread and also being the proud owner of this cool marquee...I was curious if anyone has seen the Concession signage that has also been posted in this forum?? Was curious if a similiar sign could be made for somewhat less cost...using the same Michaels frame (or even larger depending on sign) I guess the first obastacles in the way would be acquiring the proper fonts for use in Photoshop correct? Here is the link to the thread in this forum:

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=792340

Would love to hear comments thoughts etc!

I did a simple concession sign, but it's not backlit, although no reason it couldn't be if printed on the right stuff. If anyone wants the Photoshop files, feel free to PM me.

Great work Chinadog. I'd like the Photoshop file if still available, but the site shows you are not accepting PMs.

Wow very nice pics Chinadog Looks very nicely done....I especially like the hot buttered popcorn art that you have in both signs....I would love to have the .psd file as well...That is if you don't mind...Looks like I will have to figure out the right frame size that would be most fitting as well....What size frames did you use for yours? I like the size of the Blazing Ridge Cinema sign, that size looks just right...

Thanks again for the quick replies everyone!

The sign is 24"x36", but you can change that obviously. FYI, I made the frame too, so if you change it, you just create a new frame or try to adjust the size to a one of those Michael shadow box sizes. Also, the guy at Kinkos said I was breaking copyright laws because of the logos, but explained to him that it was for my personal home theater and I wasn't selling it, then he was OK with it.

WOW, for those prices, I'll start coming to your house to watch movies....

Nice work chinadog.


Curious - did you create the frame for the snacks yourself or did you just add shelves to a shadowbox? If you added shelves, what did you use (size of wood, how did you secure it, and is it just a display with empty boxes)?

Thanks. Built the shelf myself with extra wood I had from my bar I built. I just picked a size that fit the wall right and used a shelf width based on a couple boxes of candy. All the candy is real candy, not a display (I have kids ... with friends).

To secure it to the wall, I used an extra piece of wood across the back, drilled through it and attached it using wall anchors. You can see it a little bit better here:

As far as theater accessories go, here is a folder of pictures with all the stuff I worked on so far:

BTW....A huge thank you to "dachavez" for putting this sign together for me.

Steve

Unfortunately I have not worked with that material before. The questions will be around intensity of light and the color of the light. Also since this is more commercial, be very careful about heat. LED rope light is great in that it does not get hot, but sucks for color (too blue and flickers). The ones we have been doing (incandescent rope light) would get too hot for a commercial application and may create a fire hazard. Flourescents are good, but need adequate ventilation.

Wonder if this version of the ticket booth would get old. Note: this Barbie doll is about 40 years old now!
