Hello everybody, I completed my theater back in May. Now that I can't golf, I found some time to post pictures!
I started with an unfinished basement, and did most of the work myself over a 4 month period... I was exhausted by the end. The post that you see in/on the bar was the determining factor in how the layout had to be. Which left me with about 14' for 2 seating rows. Took a lot of math to get it right. Back row can see whole screen, even at 16:9. And even those at the stadium height bar can see as well. Front seat eyes are about 8ft from screen and its awesome...
I'm not much of an audiophile, so you'll see some equipment you might scoff at. Immersion is what I prefer, which makes things a bit cheaper I was able to procure some equipment from a theater that was being auctioned/bulldozed, which allowed me to not feel bad about getting nice carpet (Slate Path), and a nicer laminate in the billiard section. Pool table is a 100+ year Brunswick .
I need to thank a lot of people here. So much useful information here. If you see something that looks like yours... I probably stole the idea :) Thank you! Photography is sub par, really hard to take pictures of something that's suppose to be dim..
Over the winter I want to come up with something to dress it up a little. Might just be a couple movie posters, as I would rather it feel minimalist than crowded. Any suggestions???
