As my door is almost 4 inches thick with the acoustic panel and as the walls have the 1 inch fabric track I had to get a custom strike plate for the door latch

Here is an update on my kitchen/concession stand. The microwave an trim kit are installed



The popcorn machine and warm better dispenser look great on the back counter (the hot butter also tastes amazing!!!)



Oh and the fountain dispenser is finally here. I do however need to clean, it, hook it up, etc. Believe it ir not there are more parts for it in the room behind that wall than the actual unit on the counter (pumps, CO2 bottle, syrups, pressure gauges, etc...) This was a unit used in my father in laws restaurent. It is used and is quite dirty but once I clean it up and get it going it will me awesome.



Here is a picture of the whole concession stand

That is one of the coolest concession areas I have ever seen! I love the butter dispenser and soda fountain.

I'm curious where do you pick up the syrup for the fountain? A restaurant supply place?

I'm still trying to source that out. I think the local Coke distributor will do it, if not I have some contacts in the restaurent industry who should be able to get it for me.

Got the trim done this weekend. Here are some pics of the final project. Note that on the back wall I ran out of the small 1 x 1 trim (only 3 pieces are missing!)

Looks amazing Michel! Your build is very inspirational! Love these builds, gives me great ideas on how to do my room.
post #128 of 159
Came out awesome! Congrats!
post #129 of 159
Absolutely incredible progress!! Looks amazing! The trim really adds a lot to the look!

Is there any construction left to be done? Maybe just chairs, screen, and calibration?

I had to do this same thing, but I made mine black. Your theater looks amazing and I love the equipment door. Do your lights turn on automatically when the door opens?

thanks everyone. I am very happy with the way it turned out.

As for next steps; I need to repaint the projector cabinet (it got all marked up during my fabric install;, the seats should be in sometime at the end of May; screen is still in it's protective tube but that will go in after the seats are set up; the last step will be the audio and video calibration and Crestron programming.

Of course there are a few odds and ends I need to take care of, for example, I want to get my door handle powder coated the same color as the fabric, same goes for the hinges, I still have a few wires to terminate in the rack room, etc, etc.

I hope to be watching movies sometime in June or early July. I started researching for this project in 2009 - 2010 and finally hired Dennis Erskine in February of 2011. It's taken a while but the results speak for themselves. I am sure the audio and video will also be amazing.

None of this could have been possible without Dennis' amazing design and his support throughout all this process. If anyone is planning a build, do yourselves a favor and get Dennis involved NOW! It will be the best investment you make in your theater.

My next posts should be when the seats are in!

no the light switch is just to the side when I open the door. as for the strike plate I will also likely get it powder coated in black or cumin like the fabric, I haven't decided yet.

Very impressive and professional finish. Your panels and wood trim are classy.

Beautiful build...shows planning and patience. Can you share more details (pics if avail) on the construction of the raised platform? That's my next step in my considerably more modest HT room. I'm contemplating using I-Joists and 3/4 inch decking. What materials did you use and did you employ any sound abatement materials? Thanks!

The seating platform was framed with 2 x 10 around the perimeter and 2 x 8 with joist hangers. There is insulation between the joists. The whole platform acts as a bass trap. sorry I don't have any pictures of the build

Very nice! What make/model seats are they?
post #139 of 159
Looking good! congratulations.

+1 for the seats, I like them.

Its nice to see a more modern room designed by Dennis (not that I have anything against those coffers he does, just nice to see something with clean lines like this).

Edit: "just" the 1 sub?

Awesome room! How does it sound with everything in place now?
post #141 of 159
Wow - fantastic! Icing on the cake!

thanks Gerben.

The seats are from Jaymar. A Canadian manufacturer.

All the seats are motorized and the head rests can move up and down and tilt forward and backwards.

Oh just wanted to say that the color in the pictures do not do justice to the seats. In the pictures they look yellow. They are actually pear.
post #147 of 159
Looks great! Can you post more pictures of the seats please.
post #148 of 159
Wow. Love the way everything turned out. I'm sure it sounds amazing.
