Smile Shoebox theater

Hello all,

Just a newbie here posting some photos of my recently completed 'shoebox' theater. Room dimensions are 4.9 m (L) x 2.9 m (W) with high raked ceilings. This room was originally a garage before being converted into a bedroom and now a theater room. I wasn't quite sure how a theater would go in such a small room but it's turned out really well. It feels like a much larger space once the lights go down and that screen fills up with some 4K goodness!

Here is my setup. It's in my basement so the ceiling height is limited to 6'9" with the drop ceiling in place. It's a bit less obviously for the second row. with the riser, it drops to about 6'. We all have to work within our constraints. I'm running a full 7.1.4 Atmos Setup.



I have the following equipment...


Denon AVR-X6400h
JVC DLA-X990r
Xbox One X
PS4 Pro
Panasonic UB900
135" CinemaScope Elunevision Aurora Ambient Light Rejection screen
Paradigm Monitor 11 V7 (2 units)
Paradigm Center 3 V7

Paradigm Surround 3 V7 (4 units)
Paradigm CI Pro P65-R (4 units)
Sound Panel Treatments on the walls
PSB 200 Subwoofer

These smaller rooms can be really cozy when you're alone and also still provide the full experience as long as you move your seats close enough and have all the speakers. This is pretty cool.

Very nice setup! Is your LED light mounted on wall behind the screen frame or on the side of it?

I know you didn't ask me, but I think I have the answer for you. From when I was screen shopping I believe Elunevision offers that screen with the LED bias lighting pre-installed.

My previous theater had a Screen Innovations screen with LED pre-installed in the screen frame. The option was $499 for SI to install.


For my latest build I have an acoustically transparent screen so I built a "frame" using 1x3 poplar boards 1/4" smaller in diameter than the actual frame and then wrapped an LED kit I purchased on amazon around the wood frame. total cost of boards and LED kit was about $50.
Picture of the wood frame...


Picture with the screen hanging from the wood frame and LED kit installed...

It’s the lighting that came with the screen. It’s built in. Thank you. I’m now working on doing protostar flock material on the ceiling tiles and runners. Then I will add the star fiber optic cables for the seating area.

If you don't mind which led kit did you use? Sounds like a nice little project for me to do next.

There are some incredible rooms in this thread--many jobs well done!

Photos below are of our humble space which still needs tweaking and some sound treatments here and there, but we fired it up Saturday night for the first time. We all enjoyed it and I think the experience surpassed everyone's expectations. It's a bit more multi-purpose, but my wife and I agree it will suit our needs better in the long run.

Very nice. What do you use the table for? Overflow seating? Munchies? Poker?

Very intuitive you are. I figured people could gather around the table and eat/drink during the big game instead of making a mess on the theater seating as well as making it an overflow area when needed. And poker...well, maybe.

Since I'm mostly a lurker here, I'm not sure of the rules here for cross-posting. I shared this in the "General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms" forum and figured it was worth sharing here as well for anyone interested. Let me know if that's an issue. Thanks.

I have been a home theater and PC/console gaming fan for a long time and only in the past couple of years did we renovate our home so that I have a dedicated room to utilize. It's about 25x15 feet with 9-foot ceilings. I spent the last month blacking out the walls and ceiling with wide fabric, the walls are insulated but not drywalled, and I'd rather not lose any more width in the room trying to properly finish it. Painting of the rear of the theater (HVAC closet, networking/storage closet, and doors) is almost done, a bit more trim work to go.

We were doing some other work in our basement to add a guest room, and during that process, I had 2x 20A dedicated circuits added to the theater for the PC and HT as well, plus a dedicated ceiling outlet for the projector. Details of the setup below the images:













Album:
https://imgur.com/a/Ukv58fk

Home Theater:
Panasonic AE3000u 1080p Projector (My next upgrade is to a JVC or Sony 4k Projector)
135" Elitescreens screen
Denon AVR-789 Receiver (To be upgraded with the Projector for 4k/HDR support)
B&W Speakers: DM601 S3 Fronts, LCR60 S3 Center, DM601 Rears + HSU Research VTF-2 Sub (5.1 Setup)
2 x 5ft Chillbag memory foam bean bag chairs
Philips Hue White+Color bulbs in the two cans above the screen, plus one near the projector

PC:
Corsair Air 540 case with i7-8086k clocked at @5ghz on all cores, EVGA Superclocked 1080 GPU, 32GB RAM
Alienware AW3418DW Ultrawide 3440x1440 main screen
Dell 2711u rotated vertically for 2nd screen
Oculus Rift hanging from the ceiling with 3 mounted sensors - unplugged for now.
UpLift desk motorized sitting/standing desk with Black Eco Curved Desktop and 2 single arm "View" VESA mounts.
Herman Miller Embody office chair

Consoles:
Xbox One X
Original PS4

FAQs:
  • The mannequin head was for my old Oculus DK2 to use as a stand, now it's just to creep people out
  • Artwork along the upper left wall is my Marilyn Manson album art project I made in college - don't judge!
  • PC background image is from Dear Esther
  • Rowing Machine is a Concept 2 Model D with PM5
  • The Racing chair did come with a racing wheel/pedal mount for my Logitech G920 Xbox One/PC wheel, though I don't have it set up right now
  • Besides the projector/receiver upgrade I hope to do next year, I also want to replace the carpet scraps with properly sized carpet that's a deep red to match the doors. The current carpet piece under the beanbags helps to also serve as a natural backup to the Rift's guardian system. And, since this is a basement, and I don't want to have to trust my sump pump 100% even with a battery backup, I'll probably not do wall-to-wall carpet.

I can finally rest and enjoy it! Feel free to ask me about it or comment, I hope you like it as much as I do!

Do you know what gray that is? I'm mulling a very similar color scheme, though thinking about running crown moulding along three walls (except the screen wall) to make the room a bit less bat cave like for non-movie use.

It's a Sherwin Williams color called Midnight--it's got a bit of purple in it as well. The "bat cave" is only 325 square feet, but it meets the goals I had for that space. The remaining 1300 square feet in the basement is much lighter (see photos).

Interesting. The hint of purple is a nice touch. It looks similarly dark to Peppercorn, a color I've been considered for my walls, but I was surprised how close to black it appeared when I put an actual sample up. Yours appears a lot lighter, I guess just because the room is brightly lit.

I used Peppercorn for most of the walls in my theater. It's a great color IMHO when you don't want total black.

I checked out your pictures at the link. Any chance you might have more that show the Peppercorn walls with the lights on?
