Finishing basement; please critique my theater floor plan
Hi all. Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm finally getting around to finishing my basement. I've always wanted to have a nice theater/rec room area. Unfortunately it's proven to be a difficult space to plan given the placement of the stairway and utilities. Here are some basic details relevant to this thread:
Myself (single guy, soon to be age 40) and my friends. Also I expect my oldest daughter and her friends (high school age) to make use of it.
Ceiling height. Unfinished concrete floor to bottom of joists is 93". Finished ceiling height to be <=90" nominally, and <=80" locally where soffits are required.
Large projection screen (110"+, likely 2.40:1 with side masking for other aspect ratios)
Atmos sound (thinking 7.2.4)
Reasonable sound isolation measures (thinking isolation clips and DDGG in theater area at minimum)
At least one row of power reclining theater seats with supplemental seating at a bar row behind
Small snack bar area with drink cooler and sink at minimum
Nice to haves
Usable stage area in front of projection screen (think "open mic night" setup)
AR screen (as sketched)
Space for poker table (only setup during games)
Ideally I'd have a large enough space to accommodate a pool table and theater area, but I haven't been able to come up with anything that works given the "U" shape of the usable space. Attached is a sketch of what I've come up with so far, which abandons the pool table in favor of a dedicated theater area (approx. 13' wide x 20.5' long, ~7.5' finished ceiling), isolated from the single outdoor window. The remaining rec room area was designed to be easily convertible into a bedroom by a future owner. I expect I may use if for poker nights and will probably look to install a handful of TVs around the room, sports bar-style.
Any advice or constructive criticism to offer? I've been in touch with a couple of contractors and want them to quote based on something that's reasonably representative of what I go with. Thanks in advance for your help!
