I have seen a lot of those post too. Just make sure you are with the right one. I remember sitting on the couch with my wife and suggesting that we should build a theater onto our house. She was all for it and even helped pay for it. I definitely wouldn’t have it right now if it wasn’t for her. She was even ok changing the new dark brown carpet out for black, which is kinda crazy looking back lol. I dated some of the women that you are talking about, but I didn’t marry them

I think the fact that I am holding all her favorite movies hostage till the theater is done works in my favor.

Several post down you state that you are holding your wife's movies hostage until the theater is complete? I mean you made the statement above and you are actually married. I mean your statement seems like a lot of hostility towards women just being honest I'm very surprised you are married. Just curious what your wife would think if she were reading this thread and she very well could be LOL. But she married you I guess she already knows the man you are.

I call them loosers. Marriage is about mutual understanding, not one way street.

And all those men are with the wrong women then.

If i do go for paint, can you recommend a color and brand that i can get at homedepot/lowes?

The ambient light under the door and around the window will diminish a lot of the efforts with paint or velvet.

Has anyone found a good place to purchase Whaley's from the US?

If not, is this still the best velvet to buy on Amazon?

Cannot overstate what Jive Turkey has pointed out. This thread is about controlling reflections in the room for that last little bit of contrast, but you should save your money on room treatment and focus on that window, door (door sweep!), and the LEDs on devices up front. Start with some electrical tape to cover the red LED on the back of the subwoofer or whatever that is blasting the wall up front. Consider a pulldown roller blind behind the curtains, in velvet-lined U-Channel if you really want it dark. No wall treatment is going to fix the shadows on the screen. First control light coming into the room, then deal with the light generated in the room.

Also, I would say that your wife will probably prefer properly applied fabric over paint, but even the dark paint won't be as overwhelming as one expects before seeing it. A black ceiling really just disappears, but a nice gray is still helpful.

Edit: There do not have to be fabric joints, if you don't want them. The fabric edges can be behind trim. For example, columns spaced at the width of the fabric run vertically on the walls, or a chair rail at the height of the joint with fabric run horizontally. Crown or other trim to make up the difference if using narrow fabrics. On the ceiling you can do a coffered tray ceiling trim.

One more question, could Whaley's be used for AT screen masking, or is it translucent? Would it appear black or gray when pulled over a white screen with little space between?

I have plenty of GOM 701 in black available that I could use for masking, which is definitely gray compared to velvet. Wondering if Whaleys is better. Would prefer a more consistent ALL black look than some grayish masking.

In this regard the WHALEY'S very slightly outperforms the TRIPLE BLACK VELVET, the both of which outperform the FIDELIO


And here's the comparative performances when viewed head on perpendicular, with an additional light source positioned in front:




In this instance, the WHALEY'S very, very slightly outperforms the FIDELIO, the both of which outperform the TRIPLE BLACK VELVET.

ALL of these materials have a sheen, but it is directional, so is typically on visible when viewed from the 'wrong direction'. It is therefore very important to position the fabric in the 'right direction'. The Fidelio is the least prone with respect to a sheen.

Whilst the Triple Black Velvet performs almost as good as the Whaley's when used for side walls and ceilings, it does not perform as good as either the Whaley's or the Fidelio when viewed head on perpendicular, wherein you can see its sheen a bit as well, so personally I would not choose to use it for the front wall, screen frame, or screen masking; where I would use either the Whaley's for Fidelio for this instead. And in fact, due to fact it is least prone with respect to a sheen, and performs almost the same as the Whaley's when viewed perpendicularly head on, I consider the Fidelio the best material of choice for screen frames and screen masking.

The Triple Black Velvet is excellent for side walls and ceilings and I really think that in the darkened environment of a home theater you won't be able to perceive any difference as compared with the Whaley's; but if used for the front wall, screen frame, or screen masking you will

Consequently, I rank the performance of these materials with respect to home theater usage as per follows:


SIDE WALLS AND CEILINGS:

1st = WHALEY'S
2nd = TRIPLE BLACK VELVET
3rd = FIDELIO



FRONT WALL:

1st = WHALEY'S
2nd = FIDELIO
3rd = TRIPLE BLACK VELVET



SCREEN FRAME AND MASKING:

1st = FIDELIO
2nd = WHALEY'S
3rd = TRIPLE BLACK VELVET



What's the going rate on these three options per yard?

As long as it's a dedicated room, the wife shouldn't have anything to say about what colors to paint etc. It's totally different if it's the middle of your living room. But a dedicated room should easily be out of sight for those not using it. My wife lets me do whatever I want regarding these things.

The Whaley's is not available for purchase from the US; however, Whaley's ships to the US, so you can purchase it directly from them using the link that I previously posted

Unhappy Rosco black paint on my carpet!

Well, besides me not being happy, the wife!!
I decided to paint my already black suspended ceiling tiles and grids (oh, the wife said it wasn't necessary, already black! But we know better!). I had an accident and spilled some Rosco paint on the carpet, an area that wasn't fully covered by my tarp. The more I tried to wipe it the worse it got.
It's about a 2' diameter spot. So far I have used Resolve spray bottle carpet cleaner, a brush, wet towels, and a hand steam cleaner. I'm now heading to Home Depot to pick up some carpet shampoo for my carpet cleaning machine. I did get a lot of it out but you can still see it. Any ideas on cleaning my mess?

Me too! Until I start spilling paint on the carpet! I think she's over it already, but I'm not.

@ScottieBoysName, gotta get some black velvet! It really does make a difference. If not, a big black rug,

From my recollection, Whaleys is around $25 a yard imported in bulk, and the Fidelio is $12/foot $36/yard. The price has gone up on triple velvet but still in the $5 a yard neighborhood. Whaleys direct from manufacturer, Seymour carries Fidelio, and Amazon has triple velvet in 30 yard bolts for the best rate.

edit: misremembered Fidelio...

A shag area rug will be fine, Scottie. You can walk on it and it won't look out of place on top of wall to wall.

I updated my movie tent by purchasing velvet cloth. the results are much better with less glare and easier to hang.

Just found this going back looking for Fidelio source. I am confused. I thought it was a specialty item and was not for clothing. The link above appears to be standard consumer velvet. http://www.seymourav.com/store.asp has it by the foot, equivalent to $36 a yard.
