Splayed walls are about avoiding nodes and offering up potentially smoother audio. thebland's room is far more then splayed walls. The ceiling
is acoustically treated as are the walls, but those treatments are something a rectangular room with fabric panel walls can have.

Here's a few more splayed wall rooms. The IMAX is likely as complex as Jeff's and the other pair, I doubt have much in acoustical treatments.

Here is the full, VERY detailed build thread (in French, but Google easily translates) for the theater you posted pictures of. It is an incredible resource and well worth diving into!

Close but not quite. Sitting or walking on the side of the room if you have a clear line of sight to the led strip you will not be happy with the result, the brightness of the LEDs will look like hot spots unless your light strip is inside some kind of diffuser tube. You need to attach a lip on the outer edge of the pocket to hide the light strip.

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...=1580210502328 talks about aluminum extrusions and various looks.
The simpler extrusions are not expensive either, but the exposed silver might warrant some masking and paint.

I doubt it really matters, which direction the light shines, except that no one wants bright LEDs shinning undiffused in one's eyes. They won't be on during a movie and if the diffuser strip itself doesn't light up, is it really an issue? I think it's then simply a look. Some people even play up the repetitive dot look. (All are non splayed wall examples.) I would hedge my bets and keep any diffuser away from the screen, but that would be a consideration for anything that might potentially light up from light coming off a screen, and having any potential of bouncing light back onto the screen (hurting contrast).

Redstripe88's build might have some DIY ideas for the indirect look.

Thanks for that link CCRoyalSenders.

Okay, thanks. I think I know what I have to do, I'll play around with it on CAD.

This isn't what I was originally thinking, but looks like it'll work

It should work and if one has a Track saw or router, it wouldn't be hard to recess the extrusion.

Factor in material width and that double down as a way to hide a fabric edge. Or one could cap the end and work in
a touch of hardwood, as a slightly different look.

I also think these extrusions could be rather interesting as step lighting. I am thinking that it might be a different look, when coupled
with something like Big's BigA$$ steps.

A friend used black speaker grill fabric bought by the bolt, from a fabric store for his room. He did a small lower velcro'ed panel that is
removable, and he uses the depth in behind as a wire conduit. Depending where the av rack is, and if coupled with something like Big's
two goal post AT front end, that all just strikes me as some potential future proofing.

Anyways, just a bunch of ideas tossed out there....

No idea if you are decoupling walls, but the end cap could be as simple as two strips of plywood to create the recess for the extrusion.
Here is some framing from the Down Under Theater. (The renders as the last two pictures, in post 28.) The framing doesn't extend to
the ceiling in that picture because it is mid framing and the ceiling is also splayed.

I would be asking myself what could I do with those cavities? Acoustical treatment, conduit runs, hidden surround speakers, and even
tower style in fill subwoofers would be something given consideration. Soffits could be eliminated, if so desired.
