Budget cinema build, covering advice desired.
After buying all the kit over a year ago, I finally got round to putting our ghetto budget cinema room together. It's in alpha, and we've watched a few films - very pleased with the kit.
The carpet is black, and I've paneled the walls with the intention of covering them with black velvet; they currently have a hessian underlay. I was also planning on paneling the ceiling with the same material.
Now that we've watched a few films, I'm wondering if I should even bother with the velvet. The projector is a Benq W2000, so contrast is not the best - might it not make the blacks seem even grayer with a velvet backdrop?
If I don't use velvet, would I be best off painting the ceiling matte black? The projector is very close to the ceiling.
I'd appreciate feedback of those with some experience.
