Thanks for your comments!

I appreciate so many people here at AVS............................paying it forward is definitely one of my goals. Without the help of so many members here at AVS including yourself.................these home theaters would never get done!

I call party foul. Delete the thread. Start over. I'm supposed to be the second poster on any of DW's theater build threads. I'm not sure how AVS screwed this up??????

All kidding aside, this is one of my favorite theaters on AVS. I like attention to detail, and DW has that in spades! Congratulations on HToM!

Thanks for posting........................as far as "blings" not my style.

Original thoughts, ideas were to bring "rustic" element hence the use of Knotty Alder into room. Different shades of gray along with use of wood really helps make room warm and inviting. Wife uses room for reading..................and has stated many times she wouldn't do so if room was completely black.

I should have given you a heads up so you could be first poster with Scott's article! I will always remember your contributions in my original build thread...................and of course being the first poster!

Close to 70 pages later..........................100,000 visits...................................No. 1 always has it's place! Thanks JPA for all the time you spent helping me in my original build.....................we are kinda/sorta kindred spirits..............two engineers conversing on how to make things more difficult!

Now back to "Moar" building to you!!!!!!

"Warm and inviting" for sure, personally I go into a theater to watch and concentrate on a movie, not a 7-feet tall Iron Man blinking on the side

Well done !!

Thanks for the accolades.............................

I can recall a bit of Socratic dialogue concerning how you helped with input concerning my room too! What is great about this forum...........we can bounce ideas off each other finding ways to improve our rooms...........I know my room is better off due to your advise!

Actually, with Atmos implementation coming as soon as viable prepro is available ie. HDCP 2.2.............I'm contemplating changing out columns, lowering surrounds and adding some architectural details because of your room! Besides, I really have fun building/woodworking....................and can find Knotty Alder plywood on the cheap!

Thanks again...............BTW, since you've finished your room, we don't see you as much..........

Beautiful theater! I hope my Erskine room turns out as well as yours. Probably a dumb question.. but when you say zooming instead of a anamorphic lens, (which is what I do also) isn't that the old "pan and scan" method where the sides of the image get cut off?

Thanks for complements.............hope your room turns out just as well too!


Never heard zooming method referred to as "pan and scan".......learn something new everyday.

Depending on source material......I'll either have side edges perfect with slither top and bottom......or as you fore-mentioned overscan sides so top/bottom is perfect. Depends on movie.........hope that helps.

Anamorphic zoom and Pan and Scan are two completely different things. Pan and Scan is a post production technique where a widescreen movie was adapted for optimized 4:3 viewing. They would literally pan and scan the widescreen image content to record 4:3 content. Zooming is just that....zooming the 2.37:1 image in a 1.78 aspect ratio until the 2.37 image fills the full 2.37 aspect ratio screen without the aid of an anamorphic lens. A projector (or Bluray player) that has the digital 'vertical stretch' feature engaged would require optical horizontal stretching to preserve the proper aspect ratio of the 2.37 image.

These videos should help explain further:

Pan and Scan vs. Widescreen:


Back to your regularly scheduled programming....

And by the way, Cory - you are definitely on the invite list!

Wow! Thanks so much for your glowing endorsement of the hard work it took to pull this room together!

I would also thank you Chris for your outstanding customer service! For those who did not read in my thread, when nailing 1"X 8" Knotty Alder faceplates for soffit, I inadvertently strayed pneumatic oil from nail gun on screen. An annoying 1" diameter oil spot was smack dab in middle of screen. Help from Chris along with my quilting wife rectified the problem.

In the end, fabric glue on edge of screen, a very HOT sanitary wash, a long with lots of scrubbing before wash took oil stain off screen without damage! Screen looks like new!

Moral of story, don't be lazy and not move your screen when using pneumatic nail gun in vicinity of fabric screens!

What a really nice build and I can appreciate your exhausting timeline. I like the name too! As long as the theme ends with this build that is. I don't need to see you follow up with the Cremation or Cryonics Cinema build

At my age exhaustive seems quite fitting!

Well, I hope I take after my Father's native German side of family......they all hit their mid to late ninties! Cremation or Cryonics Cinema name hopefully never comes to fruition!

If you look on page two of this thread, there is a picture of kitchen with slide out microwave! Door next to pantry gives you access to oodles of Costco popcorn packets! I call it a modern popcorn machine!

I put my popcorn machine where it belongs.... in the kitchen with the other concessions.

Thanks for that. I'm still confused. Would it be fair to say that "zooming" cuts off the sides of the movie, but using a anamorphic lens does not?

Neither method cuts off the sides of the movie. Both fill a 2.35 screen with the 2.35 image. In the zoomed method, the pixels that are being used to produce black bars are zoomed off the screen and the remaining image of about 800 lines is what fills the screen. For the other method, the 'digital vertical stretch' feature on certain Bluray players and projectors would be engaged to fill the entire display panel in the projector. The anamorphic lens then performs a horizontal stretch optically to restore the original aspect ratio. The Panamorph video linked above gives a very nice description and visuals of the process.

Cory is zooming a 4K projector with a reference level product, so the upscaling and pixel density are top notch...as is the brightness (very jealous of that projector!).
