Jersey Apartment Home Theater

So here's my pretty much finished home theater in a Bloomfield NJ apartment. I couldn't hide any of my wires behind the walls or in the ceiling so I thought to myself "What would my crazy aunt Martha do if she came home drunk from Olive Garden and decided to design her own home theater. Eureka!!! Fake ivy and LED lights." LOL. So all the wiring is hidden behind bundles of fake ivy and those cheap copper wire LED lights you can get on Amazon. The Linda Blair head over the screen was sculpted by Rick Baker and given to my partner David Cellitti. David worked with Rick for years. David also sculpted the Phantom Of The Opera wax figure in the room. I built the Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot. My gear is as follows:

Receiver: Yamaha RX A3070
Amplifier: Yamaha MX A5000 powering the main front and center channel
Main Speakers: Definitive Technology ST 8040
Center Channel: Definitive Technology CS 8040
Side and Rear Surround: Definitive Technology 8040 SR
Dolby Atmos Height Speakers: Definitive Technology Promonitor 1000 (attached to the ceiling)
Rear Sub: Definitive Technology Super Cube 2000
Projector: Epson 5040 UB
Screen: 100" Carada Brilliant White Criterion
Blu Ray Player: Oppo BDP 103D (Region Free)
X Box One S for 4K Discs
Roku Ultra
Amazon Fire TV Cube
Main Seats: Octane Dream HR (Purchased at Wayfair listed as Orren Ellis Theater Sofa)

I know it looks berserk but I'd love to get some feedback.

Have a great day everyone!!!

First, well done on the room and channeling crazy Aunt Martha. (Not Martha Kent or Martha Wayne by any chance?)

Second, is it me or does the Phantom look like actor Michael Ironside?

Love the decoration, but be prepared to dust like crazy. For all apartment dwellers, I have to ask how one in good conscience can be running a sub, especially in a thin-walled old apt that's not constructed with concrete separation between floors and ceilings like modern condos? Your neighbors must love you.

I'ts a two family home and I live on the first floor. I asked my upstairs neighbor if they were bothered by any of the noise and they said they could barely ever hear it. I don't tend to BLAST my system loud unless I'm watching some big action movie and I tend to watch those on the weekends when they aren't home. They work weekends. They've never asked me to turn down my system. Not once. And we have a good relationship.
