That theater is so beautiful and the picture quality is so great, it almost looks like CGI.

Awesome job!

Bruce,

Your room is stunning! Do you have more pictures and a build thread ?

Flat paint is very chalky and will scuff very easily
post #786 of 857
well i would go with regular black paint but people keep saying flat flat flat flat. lol i am buying it later today. not sure which one yet. flat or not.
post #787 of 857
Oh, you want flat. Some used to say Mickey Mouse Ears flat enamel from the Disney Collection was a good choice.
post #788 of 857
Definitely Flat Paint!

It can scuff easier, but it can still be wiped off and it keeps reflection down to a minimum.

The only problem I ever had with flat paint, was I had to repaint my baseboards after I had carpet installed. They got all scratched up.

I will never have anything in my theater except flat paint. I wish there was Extra Flat paint that didn't reflect at all. I guess cloth on the walls may do that.

The flattest paint is Benjamin Moore Ceiling paint. If you go to a BM store, ask for 508 Ceiling Paint

I'll be using that for my ceiling, and probably Regal Select flat which doesn't scuff as bad as traditional or inexpensive flats. I may go Aura Matte, but it has a very slight reflection to it but is ultra durable.

If you want what is generally regarded as the "black hole" of paints. There is a specialty paint called Rosco Supersaturated Velour Black #6003. Nothing compares to the black color saturation of this stuff. Here are a couple of links: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1218000/the-blackest-most-flat-paint-period#post_17945529 and http://shop.stagelight.com/1-Gallon-Velour-Black-RSSBL1.htm;jsessionid=6CF3F7C710B956C8FEAC0C28F0ACA63C.m1plqscsfapp03

The stuff is so thick that one gallon is diluted 3:1 and covers 300 square feet.

Guess who manufactures Rosco SS wink.gif
I may give Rosco SS a look, but I don't think it'll be that different than BM 508 Ceiling Paint since the gloss/sheen level is 0-2 along the full color offering as compared to Regal Select Flat 1 - 3.5

I can promise you that 508 is super easy to apply. I used it outside the theater and my ceilings look incredible.

I believe Rosco Laboratories makes their own paints.

I just ordered a quart of Rosco SS and a quart of BM 508 ceiling paint in Jet Black 2120-10

I should get it either Wednesday or Friday since the BM508 is custom tinted. If anyone in Northern NJ wants to try out some Rosco, I get it for a pretty good price wink.gif

I'll do a side by side test over black primer and see which is flatter/darker/ more scuff resistant.

Cool, that will be interesting to see.

Guys, please keep on topic. Start a thread about paint.

I'll post my results in my build thread...but this is in direct relation to screen walls since we're all looking for the least reflectance

This is actually "show us your screen walls" which is intended for users to post pictures of their finished screen wall.  There are many other threads for discussion including "Black theater improvement thread" which is all about how to black out your theater and screen wall.

 

There are also many threads comparing Rosco SS to other paints including Benjamin Moore.  An example:

 

The blackest most flat paint.  Period.

 

Generally, if mixed properly, people tend to agree that Rosco is the blackest.

 

Now back to the show smile.gif...
