Leading edge of the riser trim is rounded over with a router bit. The front and right side (as you face it) of the small step is the same.

Where the carpet butts up to it is flat, nothing done...

I'd suggest one row of theater recliners in the prime seating position and a bar with stools in the back. You could probably fit 6 people in back and three in the middle row or even four if you...

The riser is 6' and really should be 7'. Six feet puts the first row only 9' from the screen; which I don't mind but might be too close for some. For movies like Cloverfield with a lot of shaky...

The only seat impacted is the one under the soffit, I have to bend just slightly if I'm heading to the back row (usually just for vacuuming) but then I'm only 5' 8".

The soffit has the main HVAC...

I second Big's comment, I sit 9.5' from a 120" screen, its a dramatic difference from the 2nd row which is 14' or so from the screen.

I couldn't see making a theater room for two people, four maybe not two. The same reasoning why many get a 3 row vehicle, it's not like you use it every day but it's nice to have when you want it.

It's the same with any other DIY vs. contractor build. My guess is you are looking at a 40% increase in cost over DIY.

The question is can you frame, drywall finish, run HVAC, electrical to code...

Colorwise the stove pipe would not clash with any of the other materials (carpet, recliners and wood). It does not provide any contrast so the overall look will be a slightly warm monochromatic.
