I don't know if the other posts with higher $$ spent make me feel better or worse. but for the current theater (well in a few months) will be 12,000 for the audio and visuals not including any seating or room décor or movies. Most of this is either high end DIY builds or bought used after somebody upgraded after a year or two to save money. I mean a 1 year old projector with low hours half off of $6000. Is the single most expensive item I have in the theater. all speakers are DIY which makes my $12,000 systems especially with dirac live sound like $25,000 or more.
