Show us your screen walls - Page 5

post #121 of 857
It really depends on your design plan for the treatments even floor to ceiling treatments are often done on frames, I assume you have seen many of the theaters on here and seen the various types of framing treatments. I chose to go with an art deco theme and so made my panels and columns to reflect that fabric is staples to frames and then trimmed with moulding which is not yet up in this picture. The part with the spot on it is the column.


and based on the thread title here is my screen wall though not the best shot of it.

I am not completed "the finish" but now got lazzy and its been like that for few months in the same way. I want to thank lots of members for giving me the tips and knowledge.

I took my own way of 140' of curved screen. Bought 12 foot pine 2X1 wood and made a frame. then used black out cloth 4 yard and streched to the side and stappled it. border I used some welcro. Then fastened center of the screen almost 10 inches and pulled the sides from the straight line and fastened just with wood blocks so I can take it off when ever I want it. Pretty cool screen for just for $80.00
Those who want to know more I will give all the details of How I made the screen and curved. Happy to post in this thread too.

I use self made box with two prism to make the image to 2.40:1 ratio.

I know this thread is about screen walls, but are you happy with your prism set-up? I saw some posts talking about it and the corners of the screen had image issues.

Pics of that or a link to what you have done?

Prism Set up (85.00 for two prism with shipping) is extremly good and no issues with that. You may have to zoomIN little bit out of screen (may be an inch) so that some concave black bars will go out from the screen and fill the screen only with the picture. I have the PDF file from one of the member how he did the Prism set up and which is very self explanatory (you may can make a simple version from the document too). sent me an email if you need the document.

Figured these were appropriate for a screen wall thread. Note that the shadow box
recess panels (horizontal) were 3/4 ply connecting the front frame and wall frame and covered with black GOM with spray adhesive to attach (3M super 77). GOM speaker and other face panels were screwed in place so as to be removeable and the screw heads capped with black plastic screw head caps.

CCDAstro - If you had any more pictures of your screen wall I'd love to see them, any closeups of the framing itself, or more details you could provide on how you built it, I think it looks great and could see me implementing something similar.

For those of you that made a screen wall using GOM or similar fabric, how did you wrap the wall and the columns. It seems as though the wall and columns are framed out and painted black. It also seems as though some then build a smaller frame and wrapped the fabric around that frame and used velcro to attach that piece to the wall and columns. Is that true in all cases? What about those that did not use a rectangular column but rather had sections to the column at different angles (i.e., Kirk's uptown theather room, which I am sure most have now seen)?

That's how I did mine,,,,, (except I screwed the panels in place from the back side of the screen wall.)

Verrot, looks good, but what is going in the space on the far left?
post #130 of 857
I guessing that is for access for verrot to get behind the screen wall, or a future second rack ?

Here is an updated shot of my screen wall from above (have the subs in now)

Calvin is correct,,, it's for access. It will be a treated hidden door. I have the door framed, I just need to cover it with insulation and GOM, then install. I made the mistake of starting the next project on the list before I completed the door.

Here's a screenwall from down under..

This is my second theatre that I've just finished building..
This one is smaller than the first, with the room being only 10' wide and the scope screen at 8' wide..

This is the framing of the screenwall..


And the finished screenwall..
All the AV gear and front speakers are behind the screenwall

post #142 of 857
Hopefully the link will work and scrfeen wall will show.



It's "Almost" complete. Another winter............
post #143 of 857
OK, the link works but photo didn't show in the post so will retry.

post #144 of 857
Same results. Give up for the night. :-(
post #145 of 857
Color is way off in the pics - no idea how to correct. ceiling and matching portions of the walls are black GOM. Carpet is black mottled w/ deep reds. Screen is a 106" Stewart ST130 and floats about 8" off the wall. And yes, the center channel stand was temporary and has since been replaced

Still could not figure out how to upload the pictures.

post #147 of 857
Frank, I think it has something to do with the coding that Imageshack uses.
post #148 of 857
It's a weird process but you can get the images directly. I went into your page, where it shows all the images and then (in Firefox) I right clicked and chose "Copy Image Location". Then I just pasted it between the IMG tags:

It actually has thirteen seats but since I had almost seventy guests at the meet and I only wanted to do three demo sessions I put twenty three people in each group.
