Definitely looking forward to watching your new build Brad. Glad you have your priorities right ;-)
Hey Buddy, Theater, bar, Workshop... How could I go wrong with that Quinella.
Regarding the Thread Title: I thought about starting a new thread with a new title, but then figured the entire endevour is still just one mans saga for a quiet spot to watch a movie.
The main difference between this build and the last one is that although my lovely bride never got her craft room, she is 100% behind this build, the entire family was spoiled by the last theater and everyone misses it terribly.

Funny you mention that. after spending some more time on the forum lately I find those same feelings of trepidation that were so familiar during the last build. Although I will definitely be able to avoid some previous pitfalls - first and foremost the HVAC which caused a very long and painful rework process in the first build.
Now Im second guessing the Hat and channel, and wondering if I should just go with a Room in a Room again. I think the costs would be close to a wash.
Familiarity, Better Sound Isolation, Less chance of the IB knocking stucco off the outside of the building
Takes another ~ 9" off room width (although I think I could live with this since I only plan 3 seats for the front row.
Ceiling height: I could span the ~ 15 foot with 2x6's and only loose about 7" off of the 10' plate height, but I have seen someones theater lately that had a "Tall Riser" it went ~ 3/4 of the way up the back of the front row seats.. It gave the room a very cool look. ( i cant find it again, so if this rings a bell with anyone please post a link) So things could become a little cramped once the soffit is in with a really tall riser.
One option may be clips supporting the top of the interior walls then clips and channel on the ceiling... probably a good time to bug Ted and John again for their input.. Either way I definitely need to start getting stuff on paper...Jzc
.. I lived here for 20 year before.. I just forgot how F*&^*^*G Hot it gets. Erkq
So true.. Its amazing the number of CYA ways the municipalities find to get in your pocket...
