Wow, that room is spectacular! Really nicely done!

Who designed it?

With the curved screen, are you using an A-lens?

Does the distortion bother you vs. a flat screen?

Do you think it will be okay from the side seats?

Flat vs curved is one of the decisions I've been struggling with.

You might find that you end up wanting one for audio and another one for your inkjet:

TQ... appreciate the sentiments. I love these old fashioned theater design. Reminds me of the hay day of movies back in the black and white days...

I really liked what dlbeck did with his theater, TheSavoy, and basically used it as a starting template. And then it's just about my own tastes in terms of what sort of wood, colors, carpeting, design,.. etc..

Of course, I had to take into consideration all the Acoustics I am going to need. They are all basically hidden in the design (behind acoustically transparent cloth, or behind wood, etc). Speakers are also hidden and not easily seen.

I am using the Sony 500ES 4K projector. It has lens memory, so an A-Lens is not necessary. Also, I am using the curve screen from SeymourAV (with the XD material), and since it's a 16:9 screen, the curve is gentle and I did not notice anything wrong with it. You just need to zoom in a bit into the 'black velvets'.

I too initially had a lot of questions regarding using a curve 16:9 screen to give me an Imax feel, and now that i have installed it, i must say it's great! Definitely more immersive for me. I can also sit very close, less than 10 feet from a 10 feet wide screen with the Sony 4K projector and it's great!!!

There isn't any distortion at all that i can notice. Probably due to the gentle curve.

My screen is basically wall to wall.. and yes, from any side it's just as great.

I won't go back to flat after the curve i have.. BTW: mine is 10 feet wide and 16:9 so I can's speak for other ratios and bigger or curvier screens.

The room looks fantastic. Nice choices on everything. When do the seats arrive?
