from my layman's POV - WOW.
just to be able to listen , and not just the subs, to discussions about how and the who and how things work in the real world . .
a great learning experience to increase perspective
and the dedicated room, , I can see what I'm missing out on but we've all got compromises . . . and it's almost always a work in progress
what I did notice, as an elementary point, was the strong light coming in thru and over the top of the curtains over those western windows
I had the same issue but then I could just build some big 7" thick traps, since it's the back wall and completely blank out the whole window, about 3x4 ish using hangman strips
But for my patio door on the north side, yes you can do blackout curtains but light can still sneak around and out the top if you let it.
so I build this , is it a "valance" IDK, but it keeps light from sneaking out over the top of the curtain .i.e., there's a board up there . . . duh . .
maybe that's an answer to help in controlling and mitigating intrusive light, if that's an objective for a totally darkened theater.
