Roy's Cinema - Art deco style build (UK)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all. My father has recently completed construction on his art deco styled cinema. Was mostly done on weekends over the space of half a year, and is really fantastic. If there's a feature I don't get to see in the cinema, I'll buy the Blu-ray and watch it here, because the experience is amazing.

A quick note before you check the pics - since the photos were taken, my father's built a dedicated (shabby chic) style shelving unit, so I need to get some stills of those. Apart from a few other tweaks here and there this is pretty much how it looks!

I can't remember the tech we've got running there, but off the top of my head it includes:

PS3
Denon Amp
Sky HD
Seperate Amp powering the Sub-Woofer
Toshiba HD DVD Player
Asrock ion Home Cinema PC (with BD player)
Sanyo HD Projector

There's about 7 speakers, including 3 (I think) behind the screen (which is built for allowing sound through). The curtains are electric, and look really great. The seats came from Copenhagen Chairs (Denmark) and are beautifully made and really cheap in comparison to everywhere else we looked. They did take several months to be built and delivered however.

The games room (with the snooker, pinball etc. in) looks better lit up in the evening, so you'll just have to use your imagination! There's also a small monitor, built behind a photo frame, that you'll see. This is wired in to the HTPC so we can watch stuff in that room (including full movies, trailers etc.). There's also speakers dotted around the room too for music to accompany the snooker playing!

And yes, I know there's one oddity in there - the R2D2 bin! Its not in there all the time, but is very good for collecting popcorn boxes and sweet (candy) wrappers!)

Very nice theater man. I am not the biggest fan of too much art deco but you kept it very tasteful.

I also have similar theater lights in my theater too. I always liked the theater lights with the "barn doors".

Thank you! It is really is a great way to watch films, especially as I now have 2 little children and trips out to the local cinema are rare!

Thanks again.
